On Saturday, June 2 the Record of Decision (ROD) for the South Unit General Management Plan, Badlands National Park, was signed by Pine Ridge Indian Reservation President John Yellow Bird Steele and Badlands National Park Superintendent Eric Brunnemann. The document was then sent to National Park Service (NPS) Midwest Regional Director Mike Reynolds in Omaha, Nebraska, who concluded the six year process of public involvement in the South Unit General Management Plan (GMP)/Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), by adding his signature as the approving official. Referring to taking the next step and implementing the GMP/EIS’s Preferred Alternative, Reynolds stated, “I look forward to working with all of you to create a lasting vision and a tribal national park with programs that match the incredible resources and amazing people of the Badlands and the Oglala Sioux Tribe.” The ROD is significant because it identifies continuing protection and visitor experience goals for the South Unit by selecting the Preferred Alternative as the guide to best manage these world class natural and cultural resources. The document also calls for management of the South Unit by tribal members in what would be the nation’s first tribal national park. The NPS, Oglala Sioux Tribe (OST), and Oglala Sioux Parks and Recreation Authority (OSPRA) have been working cooperatively on the development of a GMP/EIS that establishes a common vision for managing resources and visitor use in the South Unit of Badlands National Park since early 2006. With the signing of the ROD, the NPS and OST will focus on restoring the health and vibrancy of the prairie, enhancing wildlife habitat, and providing road and trail access into the South Unit. The final GMP/EIS was released on April 27, and remained available for 30 day public review following announcement of its availability in the Federal Register on April 26. This GMP/EIS has been developed with extensive public input and review by tribal members, NPS, agencies and organizations that included 18 public scoping meetings, five draft review public meetings, and 361 comments. Copies of the final GMP/EIS are available at Badlands National Park, and on the Internet at http://www.parkplanning.nps.gov/badl. It can also be accessed through the park’s home page at http://www.nps.gov/badl. Following the signing of the ROD at White River Visitor Center, Brunnemann stated, “This signing is a historic milestone, and it’s the beginning of a new partnership.” The vision described in the GMP/EIS, which includes management by tribal members, will require legislation and Congressional approval. Brunnemann and Steele pledged to begin this new process immediately following the summer tourist season in August. Both tribal and NPS representatives will then meet to start drafting the legislation needed to turn this vision into reality.

Clearer skies in South Dakota
By Gov. Dennis Daugaard South Dakota has one of the top ten fastest growing economies in the country. As we all know, a strong, thriving economy is the key to increasing our tax base and paying for important government services: education, law enforcement, and caring for those who cannot care for themselves. There is more good news for our state budget, as well. Thanks to the conservative, frugal efforts of our Legislature, we have created a culture where government doesn’t spend every last penny it receives. For FY2012, which ends on the last day in June, many of our state agencies will have underspent their budgets. With one month to go in the fiscal year, we estimate that the state will spend approximately 99 percent of the funds appropriated this year. The extra one percent may not sound like much, but it amounts to about $13 million on the bottom line, unspent. Those dollars will be available for the Legislature to save or to spend next year on education, health care, or other priorities. That is responsible government. It is better to have a budget surplus than to spend money that we don’t have. I am very proud of the people of South Dakota, for driving our economy to new heights. I am similarly proud of our state employees for showing the same frugality and self-reliance that has made South Dakota a great state. We weathered a great storm during the recession that began in 2008, but we made it through together. We were unafraid to make the tough choices – the right choices – to get our fiscal house in order, and now we can begin to reap the rewards. South Dakota’s tax collections look strong, and I’m hoping to report good news about revenues after the fiscal year ends on June 30. Things are going well in South Dakota and we need to keep it up. We need to keep adding more jobs and growing our economy. That will increase our tax base and allow us to pay for important government services. At the same time, we need to always remember that tax dollars are the peoples’ dollars. They should be spent frugally, and we should always err on the side of surplus rather than deficit or debt. If we can do these things, we can ensure that South Dakota remains in good fiscal health. Now that we are on a sound financial footing, we can turn from repairing our budget problems to planning for a brighter future.
Social Security News
Spousal benefits offer increased retirement options By Kathy Petersen Social Security Public Affairs Specialist You may have more options than you know when it comes to Social Security benefits. Like many, you probably have given some thought to your own retirement plans. You know you can retire as early as age 62 and get reduced benefits. You know you can wait until your full retirement age and get full benefits. You also may know you can defer collecting benefits and accrue delayed retirement credits up to age 70, which will boost your payment. But did you know that being a spouse or a widower gives you even more choices? For example, if you have reached your full retirement age when you elect to receive benefits and are eligible for a spouse’s or ex-spouse’s benefit and your own retirement benefit, you may choose to receive only spouse’s benefits. In this way, you can continue to earn delayed retirement credits on your own Social Security record. You then may file for benefits on your own record later and receive a higher monthly benefit based on the effect of delayed retirement credits. Widows and widowers have similar options. Widows and widowers can begin receiving Social Security benefits at age 60, at age 50 if they are disabled, or at any age if they are caring for the deceased worker’s child who is younger than 16 or disabled and also entitled to Social Security benefits on the deceased worker’s record. Widows and widowers can take a reduced benefit on one record and later switch to a full benefit on the other record. For example, a woman could take a reduced widow’s benefit at age 60 or 62 and then switch to her full (100 percent) retirement benefit when she reaches full retirement age. If you already are receiving reduced benefits and you then are widowed, you may want to wait until full retirement age to claim survivor’s benefits. Then your benefits as a survivor will not be reduced for your age. They may be reduced, however, if your deceased spouse took benefits early and was receiving reduced benefits. The rules vary depending on the situation, so you should talk to a Social Security representative about the options available to you. To learn more, visit www.socialsecurity.gov or call 1-800-7721213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778). Kathy Petersen is the public affairs specialist for South Dakota and eastern Wyoming. You can write her c/o Social Security Administration, 605 Main, Suite 201, Rapid City, SD, 57701 or via e-mail at kathy. petersen@ssa.gov.

Six South Dakota towns to welcome Health Professions students
This summer, 12 university students will learn first-hand about providing healthcare in rural South Dakota. This is thanks to six communities’ collaborations with a grant program designed to raise awareness for the healthcare services needs in underserved areas of the state. The six communities were selected as “Best Practice Model” sites for the Rural Experiences for Health Professions Students Program (REHPS) in 2012. The REHPS program connects interprofessional groups of students enrolled in medical, physician assistant, doctor of nurse practice, and pharmacy programs through the University of South Dakota (USD) and South Dakota State University (SDSU) with medical professionals practicing in six rural South Dakota communities. The program has expanded from three sites in 2011 to six in 2012. Students were selected in a competitive process to participate in REHPS. •Parkston: Danielle Schroeder, Doctor of Nursing Practice student from Pierre; Megan Bechen, Pharmacy student from Winfred •Philip: Tandis Hoffman, Physician Assistant student from Lennox; Kimberly Livingston, Pharmacy student from Yankton •Redfield: Miranda Tracy, Medical student from Pierre; Alyssa Osborn, Pharmacy student from Brookings •Wagner: Amber Burke, Pharmacy student from Round Lake Park, Ill.; Mikaela Miller, Medical student from Spencer, Neb. •Wessington Springs: Anthony Loewen, Medical student from Huron; Trent Harris, Pharmacy student from Valentine, Neb. •Winner: Tia Haines, Physician Assistant student from White Lake; Justin Cunningham, Pharmacy student from Bloomfield, Neb. In addition to the enriching career experience, students will also be involved in a community project designed to provide interaction with people outside of a clinical setting. The students will call their new communities home for four weeks. Kassy Youmans, REHPS Program Manager, said the REHPS program provides a framework for community leaders to follow in an effort to successfully recruit and retain healthcare professionals. “Students are more likely to return to facilities and communities where they have had rich, positive experiences early in their training. The REHPS program is designed to allow communities and students to make this happen,” Youmans said. South Dakota is experiencing a shortage of healthcare workers. The number of high school graduates in the state decreases as the number of retirees is increasing. Between now and 2018, 10 percent of the new jobs in South Dakota will be healthcare related. Fiftynine of South Dakota’s 66 counties are designated as medically underserved.

GFP uses many tools to help control resident Canada Geese
The South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) is preparing for another record year of helping landowners reduce or alleviate crop damage caused by Canada geese. Resident Canada goose populations continue to exceed management objectives in eastern South Dakota. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) estimated more than 227,000 birds during spring population surveys in 2011 – well above the state’s population objective of 80,000 to 90,000 Canada geese. When combined with favorable nesting conditions this spring, row crop expansion, early planting and high commodity prices, GFP will undoubtedly be busy addressing crop damage during the next several months. The high number of resident Canada geese has landowners frustrated with crop damage, especially when commodity prices are high. “There are many areas in eastern South Dakota where farmers are struggling with crop damage by resident Canada geese,” said GFP Wildlife Damage Program Administrator Keith Fisk. “GFP uses a diversity of abatement techniques to alleviate or reduce damage to growing crops, including fencing, supplemental feeding sites, food plots, vegetative buffer strips, hazing and the use of decoys and other deterrents.” The Game, Fish and Parks Department can also use its authorization from a federally issued Special Canada Goose Permit to destroy up to 2,500 goose nests and up to 3,500 birds. “This year’s nestwork activities have been completed on 71 locations in eastern South Dakota,” Fisk said. In addition, GFP has allowed landowners to remove a limited number of geese causing damage at identified complaint locations, he said. “GFP is authorizing landowners who meet specific criteria the option of removing a limited number of geese that are causing damage at complaint sites as another hazing technique,” Fisk said. “GFP walks a tightrope trying to balance sportsmen’s’ concerns of lethally removing geese outside of hunting seasons and farmers’ concerns about excessive crop damage.” The Game, Fish and Parks Department has long had a working relationship with agricultural producers when it comes to assistance in limiting the amount of crop depredation they experience, he said. GFP has also implemented the August Management Take (AMT) the past two years and has been using the Early Fall Canada goose season for several years in attempt to lower the resident Canada goose population. Hunters harvested an estimated 80,000 Canada geese during those two seasons last year. “Hunters are a primary tool used to control the resident Canada goose population,” Fisk said. “GFP encourages waterfowl hunters to take advantage of the AMT and Early Goose seasons. We’re trying to use sportsmen/women as much as possible to bring the resident Canada goose population to an acceptable level.”

Team awards announced for SDHSAA Fine Arts and Athletic Academic Achievement in 2012 spring season
The 2011-12 school year marked the fourteenth year of recognition by the South Dakota High School Activities Association (SDHSAA) of athletic teams and fine arts groups for academic excellence. The Activities Association recognizes over 300 high school athletic teams and fine arts groups from schools across the state which have achieved the “Academic Achievement Team Award” for the spring season. Any varsity athletic team or fine arts group achieving a combined grade point average of 3.0 or higher is eligible to receive the SDHSAA Academic Achievement Team Award. Numerous independent studies conducted by the U.S. Department of Education and major universities continue to demonstrate that students who are involved in interscholastic fine arts and athletic activities tend to have higher grades in school, have better school attendance, and have fewer disciplinary problems than non-participating students. These studies clearly show that high school students learn valuable lessons and lifetime skills, not only inside the classroom, but also through their participation in fine arts programs and school athletics. In addition, many studies indicate that students who are involved in multiple activities tend to have even better academic success than students that are involved in only one activity. This award program is sponsored by the SDHSAA to recognize the academic success of the teams and to encourage all students to excel in the classroom. Wall teams who earned the award are: •Girls Golf Team •Yearbook •Large Group Chorus •Girls Track and Field Team •Boys Track and Field Team •Large Group Band •Boys Golf Team •Student Council

Dental Health By Richard P. Holm MD Halitosis is a fishy and fancy medical word that stands for bad breath. Years ago I heard it put this way: “The Polish Army must have marched through my mouth last night.” Not only is it socially offensive, a foul odor coming from between the lips can also reflect a serious underlying dental or medical problem. Probably the most significant cause for bad breath is dry mouth and coated tongue, often resulting from medicines like decongestants for stuffy nose or pills for urinary incontinence. Dry mouth can also be due to mouth breathing, aging, or to an immune disease, which affects the salivary glands. No matter the cause, without saliva not only will the breath turn foul, but teeth fall out. Treat this by avoiding mouth-drying medicines when possible, sucking on sugar-free lemon drops or gum, and consulting a physician or dentist. Also brushing the tongue to remove the “coat” will go a long way to improve one’s breath. Periodontal disease with plaque, gingivitis, or bacterial infection in sinuses or the lung can certainly cause the odor of rotting. Regular dental and medical health care can help avoid or treat these conditions. It almost goes without saying that smoking or smokeless tobacco causes doggy breath. Avoid these bad habits. Of course garlic and onion give their odor after absorption into your bloodstream, which is carried to the lungs, and then transferred to the breath. Mouthwash or mints will only cover-up until time resolves the odor by breaking the chemical down that is being carried in the blood stream. You can escape the plodding Polish Army… Remember that bad breath makes a compelling case for good brushing and flossing habits and for regular dental and medical care. Dr. Rick Holm wrote this editorial for “On Call®,” a weekly program where medical professionals discuss health concerns for the general public. “On Call®” is produced by the Healing Words Foundation in association with the South Dakota State University Journalism Department. “On Call®” airs Thursdays on South Dakota Public Broadcasting-Television at 7 p.m. Central, 6 p.m. Mountain.

GFP Missouri River Fisheries updates
Lake Oahe Walleye fishing should remain good on Lake Oahe through the spring of 2012 and into the summer. With the good fishing, questions remain on the status and health of the food supply in Lake Oahe. South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks (GF&P) staff began their annual monitoring of the rainbow smelt population in Lake Oahe during April. This includes monitoring spawning adults and growth and distribution of young fish produced this year, losses of fish from the system to predators and reservoir releases during the summer months, and most importantly, population estimates at the end of the summer. Fisheries Program Administrator Geno Adams said, “Monitoring through lake surveys and angler creel surveys over the next year will help paint a clearer picture of impacts of high water releases in 2011 on reservoir fisheries. We know fish moved through these systems, but to what extent it will affect the sport fisheries remains to be seen.” GF&P staff began netting for spawning adult rainbow smelt at the beginning of April and finished in early May. Although adult rainbow smelt were caught, the numbers of fish and the length of the spawning run were lower than most previous years. Comparing catches in 2012 to the last ten years suggests that the 2012 spawn was in the lower one-third in terms of the length of the spawning season. Hatching conditions during the egg incubation time frame were mixed. The US Army Corps of Engineers provided a slow increase in the Lake Oahe water level during April. This increase is necessary to keep eggs in shallow water submerged. However, Lake Oahe experienced many high wind events during April. Waves created by wind stir up the bottom in shallow areas, which can damage fragile smelt eggs or deposit silt on top of the eggs, suffocating them. Knowing these factors play a large role in the success of the smelt spawn, GF&P staff will continue to sample for young smelt in Oahe in an effort to determine spawning success. In addition, a Lake Oahe gizzard shad stocking project is underway. GF&P staff are attempting to bolster Lake Oahe prey fish numbers by stocking adult, pre-spawn gizzard shad this spring. The objective is for these fish to spawn in Oahe, providing sport fish with young gizzard shad as a food resource in localized areas. Past studies have revealed that when abundant, shad are readily eaten by walleye and other Lake Oahe fishes. GF&P staff reached their goal of stocking approximately 1,700 shad early in May. As with rainbow smelt monitoring, GF&P staff will use various tools to monitor the success of the gizzard shad stocking project. Lake Sharpe Fishing has remained good on Lake Sharpe through the spring of 2012. However, numerous reports of “skinny” fish have been fielded by South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks (GF&P) staff. Although most of the walleye in Lake Sharpe appear healthy, there are some skinny fish in the system. This is largely due to low gizzard shad production in 2011 caused by the 2011 flood. During the flood of 2011, water releases through Oahe dam were the highest ever recorded. Because the water intake structures for Oahe Dam are deep below the surface, water released into Lake Sharpe was very cold. In fact, water temperatures last year were10-16 F below normal summer water temperatures. These cool water conditions likely delayed gizzard shad spawning in 2011. Thus, fewer shad were available as food for sport fish through the winter and spring. Because of the high number of rainbow smelt passing through Oahe Dam in 2011, Lake Sharpe sport fish remained healthy through the summer and fall months despite few available gizzard shad. Now that the supply of rainbow smelt from Oahe Dam has been curtailed, the sport fish in Lake Sharpe are beginning to feel the effects of a lower food supply than most years. However, the effects of low gizzard shad reproduction in 2011 should be short lived. GF&P staff have spent time on Lake Sharpe looking for evidence of gizzard shad spawning, with much success. Initial sampling efforts indicate a strong gizzard shad spawn is taking place on Lake Sharpe. Gizzard shad spawn in shallow water areas close to shore. They are frequently observed at Farm Island in Hipple Lake spawning. Senior Fisheries Biologist Mark Fincel said, “I have seen first hand gizzard shad spawning on Lake Sharpe and we have begun to catch the larval fish in our surveys. Current weather conditions will likely favor the gizzard shad spawn (warm and sunny) so it is likely the spawn will last a couple more weeks at least. It is only a matter of time before we see those fish in the diets of Lake Sharpe sport fish.” With a successful gizzard shad spawn on Lake Sharpe, it is likely these fish will become available as food for sport fish by late June. Until the food supply increases and water temperatures warm substantially, we expect fishing to continue to be good on Lake Sharpe.
Use insect repellent, support local mosquito control to prevent spread of WNV
South Dakotans can do their part to prevent West Nile virus (WNV) by getting in the habit of using insect repellent, says a state health official. “West Nile virus might seem less of a concern now that South Dakota has 10 years’ experience with it but it would be a mistake to think the virus isn’t a threat,” said Dr. Lon Kightlinger, State Epidemiologist for the South Dakota Department of Health. “West Nile virus can be a serious, even fatal, illness and we need to prevent it.” South Dakota has reported 1,759 cases, including 26 deaths, since its first case in 2002. There have been cases in every county. Kightlinger said the department’s surveillance is underway this year as well but all mosquito pools tested so far have been negative for the virus. Nationally, 10 states have reported WNV detections in mosquitoes or animals; only Texas has reported a human case. To prevent mosquito bites and reduce the risk of WNV, the Department of Health 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. 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. West Nile cases have occurred as early as June in South Dakota but peak transmission is July through early September. Learn more about WNV prevention on the department’s website, http://westnile.sd.gov, or the SDSU Cooperative Extension Service site at http://www.sdstate.edu/sdces/issues/wnv.cfm.

the job because that is what will keep people coming back. Excellence is also what may bring former customers who decided to go elsewhere for one reason or another back to you. Repeat customers and/or contracts renewed are generally direct results of excellence in service delivery, and when people have encountered excellence it turns them on like a light switch. Satisfied customers respond with referrals and repeat business. I personally love quality and excellence as they go hand in hand. Strive for excellence in all things. *I cannot say I have totally arrived in this area either. However, excellence is what I strive for and work at diligently toward every day! In summary, today it will be vital for you to grab a hold of these three words and diligently apply them into your systems of operation daily. Do not hold back. Take them seriously and live your dreams. Today is the day and now is the time to use that ACE in the hole! *Reader, you will notice my disclaimers in this article. I believe that anyone speaking or writing on these subjects needs to place their personal disclaimer in their work. If someone claims they have totally arrived in these areas-well, in my humble opionion, they have some serious honesty issues and are a little too self-absorbed.

ACE In The Hole
My winning hand for those who demand to win both personally and professionally is assured with an ACE in the hole. Accountability Communication Excellence Let's break these down so that when we look inside we see the power of these attitudes and behaviors. We then should adopt them to our personal way of operating our lives. Take a hold and turn these keys to greater success. Accountability: Service providers and employees need to make sure, now more than ever, that they are seeking out accountability for results, and total customer satisfaction in every contact, including both the external and internal customer that they serve. Accountability before, during and after the sale, are fundamental and a requirement for success. Years ago I rebelled in every major way against accountability, though today I have a great respect for accountability and seek out situations and people to be accountable to so that I can build this mindset deeper into my way of operating. *I cannot say I have totally "arrived" in area of accountability. Frankly this is something that I must work at purposefully every day! Communication: Leaders need to make sure they are clearly communicating the expectations they have for job performance to their employees. I refer to this as a Clarification of Expectations! A clarification in results utilizes performance standards and measurement statistically in numbers, percentages, and dollars that are written down and spelled out in black and white. If an employer fails to communicate the standards they are to blame for poor performance of employees on the job. There are no excuses for neglecting this leadership responsibility. Simply enlighten your people-and do it as often as necessary. *I cannot say I have totally arrived as an expert in communications, though it is honestly something that I must work at precisely every day! Excellence: Seek excellence in every facet of

Getting the dirt on dirt for healthier, happier kids
Dirt is a four-letter word to many moms, but letting your kids get dirty is actually good for them according to a new report from the National Wildlife Federation, "The Dirt on Dirt: How Getting Dirty Outdoors Benefits Kids." Fears about dangers lurking in the muck - microbes, parasites and amoebas, oh my! - keep some parents from letting kids do what comes naturally, which is to go outside and get dirty. But here's a dirty little secret: Children who spend the better part of their free time in the company of their sterile hi-tech gadgets rather than playing outside, are more vulnerable to obesity, ADHD, vitamin D deficiency and depression. There's a growing body of research that suggests overprotecting kids from dirt and germs may actually inhibit their physical health and resilience. Activities kids love, such as making mud pies, splashing in puddles and rolling down hillsides are actually a grubby prescription for health and happiness. •Children's stress levels fall within minutes of seeing green spaces, according to a 2004 study in the American Journal of Public Health. •When children are exposed to germs and pathogens during infancy, their risk of cardiovascular inflammation in adulthood is reduced, according to a 2010 Northwestern University study. •A friendly bacteria found in soil helps produce serotonin, which enhances feelings of well-being, much the same way that antidepressant drugs and exercise do, according to a 2007 Bristol University study. While common sense sanitation practices like washing hands and using hand sanitizer when soap and water aren't available shouldn't stop, you'll be doing your children a favor if you encourage them to go outside and get dirty. Here are some fun - and messy ideas from the National Wildlife Federation that will let your kids have some good, clean, dirty fun outdoors: Be an Artist •Give your child a stick and a muddy surface to draw on.

GOD’S WORD TO uS
by Cornelius R. Stam In charging Timothy to "preach the Word," the Apostle does not mean, as some have supposed, that the pastor should draw his sermon material equally from all parts of the Bible. True, "all Scripture" is given so that the "man of God" may be fully equipped for his ministry. But in this same letter the Apostle Paul indicates that the Scriptures must be "rightly divided" (II Tim. 2:15) and that his own God-given message is the Word of God in particular for the present dispensation of grace (See II Tim. 1:7-14; 2:7-9). Thus the Apostle declares by inspiration that believers are established by "my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ according to the revelation of the mystery" (Rom. 16:25). How often the Apostle insists that his message is the Word of God! To the Thessalonian believers he writes with joy: "For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the Word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the Word of God..." (I Thes. 2:13). Thus the Apostle writes to Timothy, in this his last letter: "Hold fast the form of sound words which thou hast heard of me..." (II Tim. 1:13). "And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men..." (2:2). "Remember that Jesus Christ, of the seed of David, was raised from the dead according to my gospel" (2:8). The charge to "preach the Word," therefore, refers to "all Scripture" in general, but to Paul's Godgiven message in particular. This is obvious, for it is in urging Timothy to faithfully carry on in his place that the Apostle charges him to "preach the Word."
Funding available for outdoor recreation
South Dakota State Parks and Recreation Director Doug Hofer announced today that applications are being accepted for grants from the Land & Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). Outdoor recreation projects sponsored by city, county, township and tribal governments are eligible to receive the grant money. “Outdoor recreation is important to a healthy community,” Hofer said. “The variety of recreational activities that local parks have to offer allows families to spend time together close to home.” The Land & Water Conservation Fund provides up to 50 percent reimbursement for approved outdoor recreation projects. “Grants will be awarded for development or renovation of outdoor recreation facilities or the acquisition of park land,” Hofer said. “The minimum grant will be for projects needing a minimum of $10,000 in federal funds. The maximum grant awarded will be $50,000 in federal funds.” Examples of eligible projects include new playground equipment, ball diamonds and swimming pool renovation. The application deadline is Aug. 10, 2012. LWCF funds are federal dollars that are apportioned to states by Congress to fund public outdoor recreation projects. Application packets are available online at For more information contact Grants Coordinator Randy Kittle at 605-773-5490 or email randy.kittle@state.sd.us

National Parks offer affordable Summer fun close to home
You can make history, culture, natural beauty and scientific exploration a part of your life this summer by visiting a National Park near you. The nation’s 397 national parks not only protect some of America’s most iconic treasures, but they also tell diverse stories and teach valuable lessons about our shared heritage. National Parks are fun and affordable tourist destinations for families, friends and even solo travelers looking for a healthy dose of exploration. School may be out for summer, but the pursuit of knowledge should never take a break – and a national park is like a classroom, but way more fun. Here are some great ideas for how to learn at a national park near you: •Commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War with a trip to a battlefield. •Visit the childhood home of a historical figure to learn about day-today living in a different era. Experience the log cabin in Kentucky where Abraham Lincoln was born, or marvel through Teddy Roosevelt’s childhood home in New York City. •Connect with your past at a place that has special meaning to your family history. •Discover an array of wildlife and plant life and truly appreciate the park’s biodiversity. On your visit, take a guided walk with a Park Ranger. Be sure to look up, look down and all around to make a game of spotting as many species as you can. •Encourage your children to connect to the science, history and natural wonder of parks by becoming a Junior Ranger, or if you can’t make it to the park, explore the WebRanger program online. •How’d that boulder get there? Discover the geology of canyons, mountains and other scenic landscapes. National park visitor centers can provide you with resources to help you understand the ground below you. •Challenge yourself to an outdoor adventure like camping, biking or rafting. Pick up skills like pitching a tent and cooking outdoors. •National parks face many challenges, from threats to wildlife, to the need for more funding. Learn about these concerns and what you can do to help locally and nationally. “Our national parks are the soul of this country,” says Tom Kiernan, President of the National Parks Conservation Association. “These are special places that can inspire us and connect us to nature and our shared heritage.” The National Park System was created with enjoyment in mind, so plan a trip that will be fun for you and your family. The good news is that you might not need to travel far; there may be one close to home. Plan your trip at www.nps.gov/findapark. The National Park System, which covers over 83 million acres nationwide, preserves natural and historical sites, creates jobs, benefits local economies, and educates a diverse public. This summer, help protect its future by fostering the next generation of park-lovers. For more information on how you can help protect our national parks, and plan your next vacation visit www.npca.org.

Take back your backyard from Insects this season
Summer means sunshine, relaxation and backyard barbecues. But it also means the return of insect season. Homeowners work hard on their backyards, but the nuisance of pesky flying insects often prevent them from enjoying their yards as much as possible. Not only are insects annoying, they can be dangerous too. Stinging insects send over 500,000 people to the emergency room each year and an estimated two million Americans are allergic to insect stings. Don’t let bugs keep you from relaxing outdoors. Use these tips to take back your yard from annoying pests. Eat More Garlic Garlic is heralded for its ability to ward off bloodsucking vampires; but did you know eating garlic can repel bloodsucking insects as well? Garlic is excreted through the pores and acts as a natural barrier to flying insects who don’t like the smell. Eliminate Dangerous Flying Insects The key to insect control is early detection and elimination. Consider using traps to eliminate bothersome bugs. Not all traps are eyesores. For example, the Black Flag Flying Insect Trap and Lure attracts, traps, and kills wasps, yellow jackets and flies, and can be hung in a tree or staked in the ground; discreetly blending into any outdoor setting. It’s also safe for your family and pets. More information is available at www.blackflag.com. Wear Proper Clothes Bees, wasps, and yellow jackets are attracted to bright colors and floral patterns. The color black also tends to irritate the insects. Wear light colors such as khaki, beige, or white to avoid being stung. Grow Plants and Herbs Certain plants and herbs, such as rosemary, basil and thyme, emit odors that ward off insects. Not only will these plants help deter unwanted pests; you’ll also have some fresh herbs ready for cooking right in your backyard! Grab a cold drink, kick back and relax in your yard. You won’t have bugs to worry about anymore.

Philip Matched Bronc Ride. Pictured above is J.J. Elshere from Hereford. Elshere scored an 81 on Korkow's Boogers Pet in round one. During the Progressive round Elshere scored an 83 on Burns' Storm Warning but during the Short Go he came off of Burch's Big Mama around seven seconds. Ryan Elshere, Elm Springs pictured left scored a 78 on Burns Rodeo Company's Wasp. In the Progressive Round he scored an 83 on Burns' Crazy Mary and also won the round. Ryan won a hat that is sponsored by the Jerry Willuweit family. Jerry’s son Will made the presentation at the match. ~Photos by Nancy Haigh
SDSu Extension
By Ann Schwader Nutrition Field Specialist SDSU Extension-Winner Regional Extension Center MyPlate calls the former MyPyramid “Milk Group” the “Dairy Group”. Consuming dairy products provides health benefits such as improved bone health. Bone mass is built during childhood and adolescence, so the intake of dairy products during these years is especially important to bone health. It shows that milk
Milk matters
matters. Foods in the Dairy Group provide nutrients that are vital for health and maintenance of your body. Calcium builds strong bones and teeth in children and youth. It also helps adults keep their bone mass so they do not develop weak bones and diseases like osteoporosis. Vitamin D is a nutrient that makes sure the body has proper levels of calcium and phosphorus, which help to build and maintain bones. Milk and soymilk that are fortified with vitamin D are good
sources of this nutrient. Diets rich in potassium may help to maintain healthy blood pressure and reduce the risk of having a stroke. Some individuals are surprised to learn that youth and adults need more of the dairy group than children to promote good health. Dairy choices should be low-fat or fat-free to cut calories and saturated fat. How much is needed? Older children, teens and adults need three cups a day, while children four to eight years old need two and one-half cups, and children two to three years old need two cups. Tips for making wise choices in the dairy group are as follows: Include low-fat or fat-free milk or calcium-fortified soymilk as a beverage at meals. If you currently drink whole milk, gradually switch to lower fat versions. This change cuts calories but doesn’t reduce calcium or other essential nutrients. If you drink cappuccinos or lattes ask for them with fat-free milk (skim) milk. Make fruit-yogurt smoothies in the blender. Top fruit salads and baked potatoes with low-fat yogurt instead of high fat toppings such as sour cream. Plan to use plain yogurt instead of sour cream for dip recipes. Can’t drink milk? If you avoid milk because of lactose intolerance, the most reliable way to get the health benefits of dairy products is to choose lactose-free alternatives within the Dairy Group, such as cheese, yogurt, lactose-free milk, or calcium-fortified soymilk (soy beverage) or consume the enzyme lactase before consuming milk. Milk matters. Parents who drink milk and eat dairy foods show their kids that it is important. Go to: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/food-groups/dairy.html to find out what foods are included in the Dairy Group.

FOCUS ON THE FAMILY
with Dr. James Dobson
Dr. Dobson Answers your Questions
QUESTION: Like everyone else, I constantly feel as if I don’t have enough hours in my day. Meanwhile, I’ve read lots of articles and been in on lots of conversations about the relative merits of quality and quantity "family time." As a parent, this debate is of vital importance to me, but I don’t know how to resolve it. Everyone in our house keeps a hectic schedule, and sometimes I find myself wondering: just how important is "family time" when you're simply trying to make ends meet and get through the demands of the day? Can you shed any light on this problem for me? ANSWER: Family time is important and has to incorporate elements of both quality and quantity. Quantity time creates a safe environment where youngsters can feel accepted and valued for who they are. It communicates availability, fosters a sense of security, and establishes a solid home base from which children can launch out into the world with confidence and strength. Quality time, on the other hand, is essential to the process of family bonding. It’s the stuff of which relationships are made, the polished gem that caring parents fashion from the raw material of moments, hours, and days spent together. The thing to note is that it’s difficult to have the one without the other. The more family time we create, the more opportunities we have to touch each other’s lives in profound ways. You can’t seize the day if you’re not there to do the seizing, and it isn’t always possible to cram meaningful memories and life-changing conversations into a few minutes of contrived quality time. None of this happens automatically, of course. It’s entirely possible for a family to spend lots of time together and come away the worse for it, especially if their interactions are marred by constant strife, anxiety, or abuse. The key to success is intentionality—a determination to be present in the moment and to make the most of every circumstance. Contemporary marriages and families lack time—quality and quantity—for a number of reasons. An endless pursuit of material things requires increasing amounts of money, which translates into more hours at work. Busyness creates fatigue and deflects attention from pressing relational issues. Couples “grow apart” as their lives travel down separate but parallel tracks. Moms and dads model a task-oriented mentality that communicates an unmistakable message to their kids: take care of your duties and obligations first, then feel free to retreat into your own (electronic) stimulation, recreation, or leisure-time activity (read: “isolation in your own room”). If you want to escape this numbing pattern, you may need to revamp your schedule and engage in some serious lifestyle planning. Go back to Square One, revisit your basic values and priorities, and resolve to make some countercultural choices and decisions if necessary. Take steps to reduce your outside commitments and block out weekly family time on the calendar. Don’t worry about how it looks to “other people” if you limit yourselves to one or two selections from a long list of worthwhile church activities. Resist the temptation to sign your kids up for numerous sports teams, music and dance lessons, social clubs, and all kinds of community organizations— one activity per season per child maybe more than enough. Carve out spaces, create margins, and don’t be afraid of "voids." Agree to turn off all communications devices at certain times of the day or on certain days of the week. Instead of watching TV, read together, play board games, take a walk to a local park, or sit and talk. Get into your kids’ space, hang out with them, and find out what excites them. This is all part of the process of turning quantity into quality time. Meanwhile, don’t forget to take full advantage of simple everyday interactions. Drive time, mealtime, meal preparation, bath time, bedtime—all can become opportunities for shared discoveries and precious, unforeseen, and unique conversations between parent and child. It’s a matter of learning to savor life’s ordinary moments. Most children find just as much, or even more, joy in the little things as they do in life’s big events. Activities like eating a special breakfast of chocolate-chip pancakes, picking out the perfect backpack for the first day of school, or singing silly songs in the car could turn out to be some of the most memorable highlights of your kids’ childhood years. QUESTION: I've received a lot of conflicting answers to the following question: is the quality of time I spend with my family more important than the quantity? What do you say? ANSWER: We don't think so. A few years ago family experts were preaching that what's important is "quality time," not "quantity time." More recent research shows that kids need both "quality" and "quantity" time with their parents. In fact, the more involved parents are with
their children - and the word "more" here is used with direct reference to the concept of quantity - the less likely they are to have social, emotional, or academic problems, use drugs or alcohol, become involved in crime, or engage in premarital sex. You have to bear in mind that it's not always possible to plan meaningful interactions between parent and child. Such serendipitous moments can't be cooked up and crammed into a few minutes of "quality time" every day. Many critical opportunities to teach or model moral values may catch you off-guard and will be gone in the blink of an eye. You can't seize the moment if you're not there to do the seizing. And that means spending lots of "quantity" time together with your kids. Without more detailed information about your family situation it's hard to know exactly what else to tell you. But your inquiry leads us to believe that you may need to re-examine your priorities. The very fact that you're thinking in terms of "quality" vs. "quantity" indicates that you're looking to justify spending smaller amounts of time with your family. Is this supposition anywhere near the truth? If you're not sure, you can put the matter to the test by asking yourself a few simple questions. Is your employment outside the home a matter
of providing for basic needs, or are you driven by materialistic desires or a longing for personal significance? Are there any aspects of "maintaining a household" that you can afford to sacrifice? Do you attach a greater value to status or appearance than to the well-being of the people with whom you share your life? After all, a spotless home isn't nearly as important as a close relationship with your spouse and children. Another suggestion: one of the easiest ways to make more time for loved ones is to turn off the TV. In the average American home, the television is on 49 hours a week. By way of contrast, the average amount of time that both parents spend in meaningful conversation with their children is 39 minutes a week. If you need more time with your spouse and your kids, make the obvious choice. Instead of watching TV, read together, play board games together, take a walk to a local park, or sit and talk. If you have children, it's also important to avoid the temptation to get them overly involved in activities outside the home. Some parents feel pressure to sign their children up for numerous sports teams, music and dance lessons, social clubs, and all kinds of community organizations. Don't fall prey to this mindset. Kids don't need a dozen different weekly activities. They need quality and quantity time with loving, involved, and committed parents.

NOTICE OF PuBLIC MEETING
JACKSON COuNTY DRIVER’S LICENSE SERVICES The Jackson County Commissioners are holding a public meeting at 8:00 p.m., Friday, June 29, 2012 in the Courtroom of the Jackson County Courthouse, 700 Main Street, Kadoka, SD. The purpose of the meeting is to obtain public input as to whether Jackson County should continue to provide driver’s licensing services for the S. D. Department of Public Safety. In 2004 Jackson County entered into an agreement with the S. D. Department of Public Safety to provide driver licensing services for the State of South Dakota. At the time Jackson County entered into the agreement with the State, the State provided driver licensing services in surrounding communities. The State has reduced or eliminated the service provided in those communities. This has created a larger work load for the Jackson County office(s) providing the services, and the cost to Jackson County is greater than the $5.00 per license fee that Jackson County retains for providing the service. Jackson County is considering hiring additional staff for the increased work load. Citizens come from up to one hundred miles away to obtain their driver’s licenses in Jackson County, and many chose to come to Jackson County instead of going to the state sites in other communities, Pierre or Rapid City. Jackson County requested that Jackson County be allowed to retain one-half of the license fees. The state has denied the request. State law does not allow the
county to charge an additional fee. If additional funding is not found, the Jackson County Commissioners are considering discontinuing the driver licensing services. For persons unable to attend this meet-
ing, written comments may be sent to: Jackson County Commission, P O Box 280, Kadoka, SD 57543 Published June 21, 2011, at the total approximate cost of $21.66.
