US Forest Service celebrates 75 years of national grasslands
“It took decades to restore the national grasslands from the barren landscapes of the Dust Bowl, to the rich prairie habitats we see today,” said Tidwell. “Every American should experience these unique grasslands that are so much a part of our rich natural heritage.” The national grasslands provide tremendous benefits including pollination of native and agricultural plants estimated at six billion annually. Livestock grazing and energy ventures including oil, gas, coal and wind also contribute to the economic benefits provided by these lands. They help prevent drought and floods, maintain biodiversity, generate and preserve soils, contribute to climate stability and protect watersheds, streams and river channels. These lands were managed by the USDA’s Soil and Conservation Service, now the Natural Resources Conservation Service, until 1960 when they were transferred to the U.S. Forest Service and designated as national grasslands. The mission of the U.S. Forest Service is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of the nation's forests and grasslands to meet the needs of present and future generations. Recreational activities on our lands contribute $14.5 billion annually to the U.S. economy. The agency manages 193 million acres of public land, provides assistance to state and private landowners, and maintains the largest forestry research organization in the world.
America’s Best Value Inn escapes fire damage
The U.S. Forest Service celebrates 75 years of National Grasslands, showcasing the beauty, history and economic value of these national treasures on the anniversary of the legislation that established them. America’s 20 national grasslands, spanning 12 states and four million acres, were created through the Bankhead-Jones Farm Tenant Act of 1937, authorizing the federal government to acquire damaged lands for rehabilitation. Thirteen of these national grasslands reside in the Great Plains, where the ravages of the Dust Bowl left the soil bare of vegetation for years. Today, the benefits grasslands provide are valued in the billions of dollars. “Our national grasslands remain beautiful examples of successful restoration programs,” said U.S. Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell. “These lands are once again
rich habitats brimming with native wildlife, grasses and wildflowers. They are also economic engines, generating jobs and bolstering rural American communities.” The national grasslands offer a wealth of recreation and education opportunities for more than one million annual visitors. The grasslands feature some of the world’s best bird-watching experiences as well as camping, hiking, biking, fishing, hunting, horseback riding, target shooting, off-highway vehicle riding, picnicking and learning activities. Scenic drives offer unique geological features, wildlife and stellar locations for stargazing. History buffs can visit old cemeteries and homesteads and take guided tours of Native American petroglyphs. They can also share in the experience of early settlers and their trek on the Santa Fe Trail.
The Wall Volunteer Fire Department was called to the America’s Best Value Inn on Tuesday, June 19 when sparks from construction work landed on an outside wall and began to smolder. The fire department knocked down pieces of the outside wall and quickly extinguished the smoldering embers before further damage could occur. Pictured left ...

Walkers open The Rock Lounge and Casino
ping-pong table that is self-folding can be moved around to allow for more tables to be set up. Lori noted that the tables when set up and used have red table clothes which adds a nice touch to the room. “Extra seating is essential when holding private parties or meetings,” said Lori. A Touch Tunes Digital Jutebox with sound by Bose is ready to rock the house when darts are being played or a mean game of Foosball is going on. The new bar area has a chill cooler for aluminum beer bottles which keeps them at a constant temperature of 32 degrees. Six video lottery machines sit in a room right off the lounge and the lounge now sports new tables and chairs. Walkers are in the process of setting up shelves in a different part of the store for the complete line of NAPA parts they have carried since 1997. Lori added, we are not downsizing our NAPA line, we just moved the inventory to the back of the building. The door to the part store is in the back and through the blue door. Whether you’re waiting for lunch or parts stop in and check the newest addition to the business and town of Wall.

S.D. gets high marks for creating healthy economic environment
A new study done for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce credits South Dakota as the top state in the nation when it comes to reasonable taxes and business regulations. And the Enterprising States study rates South Dakota in the Top 10 when it comes to economic performance, a talented workforce and being in the best position to prosper in the next five to 10 years. “These accolades are testament to common sense policies that allow for business development with reasonable taxes and regulations,”said Gov. Dennis Daugaard. “South Dakota is making its mark in the global economy by expanding existing businesses and attracting new ones; providing a quality workforce and helping train workers who need additional skills; increasing exports; and improving the quality of life for our residents.” In ranking South Dakota as No. 1 on taxes and regulations, the Enterprising States study says the Mount Rushmore state ranks in the top five in four categories: tax environment for mature firms, overall tax environment for business, business closure rate, and the small business survival index. “The state has no corporate income tax, no personal income tax, and no tax on business inventories, greatly lowering tax burdens on companies,” the study says. “In addition to pledging to hold the line on taxes, Gov. Dennis Daugaard made regulatory reform one of his key initiatives focused on improving South Dakota’s business climate.” The U.S. Chamber of Commerce study made a special note of Gov. Daugaard’s “Better Government” initiative, begun in 2011 to review the state’s regulatory climate and streamline state government interactions with businesses. The study also lauds the governor’s South Dakota Workforce Initiatives (WINS) strategy of improving education, increasing worker training, expanding health-care jobs and opportunities in rural areas, and attracting new residents with valuable job skills. Enterprising States rates South Dakota No. 5 in the nation for educating and training workers, and No. 7 for growth, productivity and livability. The study also said South Dakota is No. 9 among potential boom states whose economies are expected to have steady growth and job creation within the next decade. “Known for its friendly business climate, South Dakota ranks eighth in long-term job performance, fifth in projected job growth and fourth in per capita personal income growth,” the study concludes.
Golden West announces promotion

Harlan, Lori and Chad Walker have been busy with painting and moving the NAPA parts store to the back of the building. This will add more room for the Red Rock. Lori said, “We needed more seating for the restaurant and since we had a Beer/Wine liquor license we thought why not add a Rock Lounge and Casino. The revamped area has the feel of a sports bar with five wide screen TVs. Walkers plan to add another TV in the near future. Lori said, “We have locals who like to come in during their lunch time and sit in here and watch TV while they have their meal. A pool table now fills the space where an office once was and a
Public input sought on proposed Cain Creek Land Exchange
Golden West Telecommunications Cooperative Inc., is pleased to announce the promotion of Nick Rogness to Director of Engineering and Operations. Mr. Rogness will be responsible for the design, implementation, and operation of Golden West’s network infrastructure and supporting services. Rogness brings 16 years of experience within the service provider industry including various technical and management roles. He holds a B.S. degree in Computer Science and a M.S. degree in Technology Management from South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. Rogness is stepping into the position previously held by Galen Boyd. Boyd is retiring July 1, from Golden West after 33 years of service. The Nebraska National Forests and Grasslands is seeking public comments on a proposed land exchange between The Nature Conservancy, a Not for Profit Corporation and the Forest Service. The primary purpose of the Cain Creek Land Exchange is to consolidate land ownership where private and National Forest System (NFS) lands are intermixed, and to acquire black footed ferret habitat in the Conata Basin. Federal land parcels proposed for exchange lie on the Buffalo Gap National Grassland between Hots Springs and Kadoka. All legal descriptions reference the Black Hills Meridian and lie in Fall River, Pennington, and Jackson Counties of South Dakota. “This proposed land exchange would provide better public access to public lands, allow more effective management of public and private lands, and enhance black footed ferret habitat,” said Steve Lenzo, Acting Forest Supervisor. “We welcome comments from the public during this scoping period,” he said. The purpose of the scoping period is to request initial public comments to help identify the scope of issues to be studied in an environmental analysis of the proposal, to recommend alternatives, and offer mitigation measures. Comments will be taken until July 30, 2012. Please address written comments to: Nebraska National Forest and Grasslands Attn: Cindy Hockelberg 125 North Main Street Chadron, NE 69337 Fax: 308-432-0309 Comments may also be submitted by e-mail to: comments-rockymountain-nebraska@fs.fed.us and write “Cain Creek Land Exchange” in the subject line.

South Dakota agriculture means business
By Gov. Dennis Daugaard Much has changed in agriculture since I milked cows as a kid. Extraordinary technological advances in the last few years are resulting in higher yields and increased outputs with fewer impacts on the environment. This incredible growth in productivity offers tremendous opportunities for economic development through a variety of value-added enterprises. Farming and ranching operations do more than support the farmers or ranchers who own them. They also support employees, local cooperatives, gas stations, veterinarians, banks, schools, and other Main Street businesses. Agriculture generates 20 percent of our state’s economic activity, and we tend to get complacent when commodity prices are high and times are good. But good times don’t last forever, and we must continue to grow and diversify this industry. To explore new ways of expanding South Dakota agricultural businesses – from increasing international trade and exports to further developing our livestock industry – I am hosting the 2012 Governor’s Ag Development Summit on June 27 in Pierre. The Summit will be a forum for a series of thoughtful conversations on agriculture and emphasize ways agricultural businesses can thrive in our state. There are still spaces available for this important Summit, so register online at http://sdda.sd.gov or call the South Dakota Department of Agriculture at 605-773-5436. South Dakota has the land, the people, the drive, and the opportunity to build this important economic sector for the next generation. We must look for ways – right now – to bring in quality development that will help keep agriculture as South Dakota’s No. 1 industry. We need to do this by looking for areas capable of sustaining development and supporting them in preparation for it. The Governor’s Ag Development Summit will help lead us down the path for future growth and progression of our agriculture industry. I hope to see you there.

GFP finalizes West River and Black Hills Deer hunting seasons
The South Dakota Game Fish and Parks Commission has finalized several deer hunting seasons. The Commission reduced threetag deer licenses for the West River Deer Season, but increased single-tag and double-tag licenses in some units. Compared to 2011, there will be a reduction of 2,540 resident licenses and 11,630 tags this year. The Commission also modified hunting area WRD 27-L to add some public lands adjacent to the Cheyenne River and Angostura reservoir. For the 2012 West River Deer Season, only unfilled Antlerless Deer and Antlerless Whitetail Deer tags will be valid during the nine-day Antlerless Deer Season extension beginning the Saturday after Christmas. In addition, West River Antlerless Deer Tags will not be valid during the firearms antelope season in their respective units. The West River Deer Hunting Season will run from November 10-25 in most units, with the Antlerless Season extension running from December 29, 2012 – January 6, 2013. Black Hills deer hunters will find 200 resident and 16 nonresident Any Deer licenses, 3,000 resident and 240 nonresident Any Whitetail Deer licenses and 150 resident and 12 nonresident Antlerless Whitetail Deer licenses for the 2012 Black Hills Deer Hunting Season The Black Hills Deer Hunting Season will run from November 1 – 30.
Jackson County seeking input regarding fate of license service
At a special Jackson County Commissioner’s meeting on Friday, June 29 at 8:00 p.m., the commissioners will be seeking public opinion regarding the fate of the driver’s licensing service. Should Jackson County continue providing the service, or discontinue it? Input will be taken from not only Jackson County, but surrounding counties as well. Since entering into the agreement with the South Dakota Dept. of Public Safety in 2004, many of the state wide services have been reduced or eliminated across the state. Jackson County receives $5.00 per license fee and the workload has increased throughout the years. The county is considering hiring additional staff for the increased workload. People travel a long distance to obtain their licenses in Jackson County, which is available Monday through Friday. The next nearest place to renew or obtain a license is Mission, Jones County or Martin; these sites only offer the service on limited days. The State has denied Jackson County’s request for allowing the county to retain one-half of the license fee. According to a legal notice, “If funding is not found, the commissioners are considering discontinuing the services.”

Healthy Cooking Techniques Cooking healthy doesn’t mean that you have to go to culinary school or purchase expensive cookware. Eating healthy is about preparation, seasonings, and choices of foods you eat. Good health depends on good nutrition. Go to http://www.choosemyplate.gov/supertracker-tools/supertracker.html for help with planning, analyzing, and tracking diet and physical activity. In addition, you can often make better choices about what and how much you eat by preparing and cooking food yourself. The food preparation methods you choose for cooking foods can have a big effect on their nutrient content. Cooking methods that minimize the amount of water, time and temperature needed, will help to preserve nutrients. Use any leftover cooking water for making sauces or soups. Reduce cooking time by covering your pot to hold in steam and heat. Steaming is a good example of a cooking method that cooks vegetables quickly and retains nutrients. Steamed vegetables will retain more flavors and won’t need any salt. To lower sodium intake, avoid using prepackaged seasoning mixes. Instead add fresh or dried herbs such as thyme and rosemary for pungent flavor or dry mustard for a zesty flavor. At the last moment before serving, try sprinkling citrus juice as a flavor enhancer on fruits or vinegar on vegetables. In a wok, quickly cook small pieces of vegetables, poultry or seafood in vegetable stock or a small amount of oil to stir fry foods. Soy sauce and Teriyaki sea-
By Ann Schwader Nutrition Field Specialist SDSU Extension-Winner Regional Extension Center sonings should be avoided because of their high sodium content. Baking and roasting are two healthy ways you can prepare meats and fish. When roasting, use a rack in the pan so the food doesn’t sit in its own fat drippings. Use fat-free liquids like lemon juice or tomato juice to baste. Bake poultry, lean meat or fish in a covered dish with a little extra liquid. Grilling is another way to cook your favorite lean meats or vegetables in a healthy way. Place the food on a grill rack over an open flame. Use a long-handled grill basket for grilling smaller items. Healthy decisions start at home. Make better food choices by planning ahead. By getting children involved in meal planning and healthy cooking it will be easier to make healthy changes.

9-1-1 surcharge to increase on July 1
The South Dakota 9-1-1 Coordination Board is reminding telephone users of the 9-1-1 surcharge increase that takes effect on July 1, 2012. The 2012 Legislature approved an increase in the traditional surcharge from the current 75 cents per month to $1.25 per month. That fee is collected by all monthly billed telephone and wireless service providers, such as CenturyLink, Verizon, Midcontinent Communications, AT&T, Golden West Telecommunications, Knology, Vonage and others. In addition, the Legislature also assessed the two percent 9-1-1 surcharge on all prepaid wireless services collected at the retail point of sale. That rapidly growing segment of wireless users includes such companies as TracFone, WalMart’s Straight Talk service and others. The surcharge, a fee imposed in virtually every state, pays the cost of operating 9-1-1 public safety dispatch centers. In South Dakota, the Legislature first authorized a surcharge in 1989. The fee has been limited to no more than 75 cents per phone line per month since then. “That’s 23 years without a funding increase in an industry that has changed almost beyond recognition in that time,’’ said Ted Rufledt Jr., Chair of the State 9-1-1 Coordination Board. “Revenue from the surcharge simply hasn’t kept up with changes and rising costs of providing 9-1-1 service. Some of the additional revenue will be used to provide additional funding for the 9-1-1 centers, and some will be used to make the changes necessary to modernize 91-1 in our state.’’ As of 2011, the 9-1-1 surcharge covered about half the cost of operating the system in South Dakota. Besides the need for additional revenue to support the existing system, funding was needed for South Dakota to update the 9-1-1 system to what is commonly called Next Generation 9-1-1. Most of the existing system is based on 1970s telephone technology. With the explosive development of wireless smart phones, 9-1-1 as it exists today isn’t able to capitalize on the technology that wireless customers use every day. For example, citizens can’t send a text message to a 9-1-1 dispatch center. They aren’t able to send photos or video of crimes or suspects directly to a 9-1-1 dispatcher. Those services would be possible in the Next Generation 9-1-1 system. The surcharge increase passed nearly unanimously (SB174) during the last legislative session. A portion of the increase, 25 cents per line per month is earmarked for Next Generation 9-1-1 and is scheduled to sunset in 2018. The State 9-1-1 Coordination Board plans to start updating parts of the 9-1-1 system in the next one to two years and to have all 9-1-1 centers on the updated system by 2018.

Helms awarded scholarship at SDSU
Emily Helms of Wall was awarded the James K. (Tex) Lewis Scholarship for the 2012-2013 academic year at South Dakota State University. Helms is a senior at SDSU, where she is active in the Range Club, Prexy Council and AgBio Ambassadors. She is the daughter of Elden and Lillian Helms and is a 2008 graduate of the Wall High School. Professor Emeritus James K. "Tex" Lewis retired from SDSU after 35 years as teacher and researcher for the range livestock industry, rangeland conservation and higher education. He received the Outstanding Achievement Award from the Society of Range Management and the Trail Boss Award from the South Dakota Section of the Society for Range Management, which provides the scholarship in honor of Lewis. The Society for Range Management is composed of ranchers, rangeland managers, educators, researchers, and others interested in rangelands. The Society believes one of its major objectives is to provide our youth with a rangeland that is better today than it was yesterday and that will be even more improved for the tomorrows when our youth inherit the land.

Gathered by Frances Poste Jason, Janet, Spencer and Drew Christensen of Meridian, ID, arrived Sunday to visit Janet’s mother, Brenda Carmichael. Sunday evening, family gathered for a barbecue/potluck supper to visit with them. Those attending wer Scott, Angie, Tyson and Aidan Dunbar of Summerset; Tony, Marla, Mason and Cooper Venjohn of Piedmont; Carl and Jan Hill and daughter Whitney and son of Rapid City; Norman and Diane Geigle; Josh and Shasta Geigle and family; Gerald and Esther Wolford; Arla Olson and Merlin and Mary Jane Doyle. Lots of visiting and wonderful food. David, Kathy, Holly and Jacob Jedlicka went to Pierre on Friday evening and visited Donna on their way back on Sunday. Jacob is working in Philip at Grossenburgs. Merlin and Mary Jane Doyle met Joe and Barb Croell for lunch on Sunday. Croell’s had just returned from a fishing trip to Canada. Lots of fish stories and pictures to share. The weekend of the 15th - 17th, Evelyn Kjerstad joined her sisters for a “road trip”. Barbara Byrne came form Sundance, picked up Evelyn and they went to Philip to Phyllis Hajek’s. Dorothy Fortune met them and they drove on to Sioux Falls. They visited a cousin’s wife there and went to Falls Park. In Centerville, they saw another cousin’s wife (from other side of their family). Joyce (Welfl) Pierson lives in Viborg, so that was another stopping place. Czech Days at Tabor drew their attention also. Sounds like they had a lot of fun plus visiting. Theme meal was at the Village on June 19th. People must have other things on their agenda as numbers were down. Same thing for Senior Citizen’s potluck supper - plenty of food, few people. We hear of the death of Maurice Thompson, Jeanne Botz’s dad, in Minnesota. His funeral was on Monday, June 25th. His wife Myrtle died less than two months ago. We offer our heartfelt sympathy to the family. Dorothy Hamann cut a gash in her arm some weeks ago when she was picking up branches, tripped and fell onto some cement abutment. It is healing, ten stitches have been removed and it looks good. Just goes to show what can happen in an instant. Glad you are doing well, Dorothy! Arlin Knutson, son of the late Raymond and Deloris Knutson, was in the Drug Store last Thursday morning greeting old friends. He said they are moving from Spokane to live in Arkansas. Congratulations go out to Norman and Betty Klingbile as they celebrate 65 years of married life on June 29th. Hazel Thompson, Charlene Kjerstad’s aunt, had hip replacement surgery at the Spearfish hospital on Friday, June 22nd. She is doing well. They used a different procedure that isn’t as invasive, making healing quicker. Charlene will be staying with her this week. Maxine Smith and Frances Poste met their niece, Bonnie Miller, in Rapid City on Friday morning and rode with her to Sundance to visit another niece, Gail

Kaiser. Gail has a nice home that we had never seen and had a great time looking at pictures and visiting. Time passes so quickly when you are having fun! Lyle and Viola, Leslie and Kay Williams attended a Williams/Jeffery family reunion this past weekend. Friday night the group gathered at Silver City and on Saturday they went to the Elks Club in Rapid City. People attended from Idaho, California, Maryland and South Dakota. The Senior Citizens (YAH) will not have a meeting on July 2nd, but if you want to come at one o’clock, as usual, they will finish packing the boxes for servicemen overseas. Remember to go eat pancakes at the Ambulance building on Saturday, June 30th, 4-7 p.m. The fundraiser includes a bake sale along with the pancake fee. See you there! We had quite a storm last night — wind and rain. At least, we didn’t get the hail they predicted. Some of the grain fields are getting to look ready for harvest. Hot weather is here so it won’t be long! Pray for a good harvest but keep ~Anonymous on hoeing. age, make and model! It’s a beauty!

Elm Springs News
Submitted by Matthew J. Trask News in Elm Springs this week was as scarce as hay, although easier and cheaper to accumulate.

On Sunday, Shirrise hosted a large gathering for a stamp party at the Morris Linn residence. The Lynn Fields' were not home to report the news Sunday night but it is known that Lynn won a trivia contest on 810 KBHB Saturday for knowing the population of Belle Fourche in 1919. Tom and Sheila Trask left Thursday for Cashton, Wisconsin, to do some horse-trading (no really) returning Saturday night. Tomilyn visited the upland Trasks for supper, Friday and Saturday nights.

Wasta Wanderings
Submitted by Lloyd & Margee Willey Good news in Wasta! Kylee Rae Smid was born Thursday, June 21, weighing seven pounds 15 ounces and is 21 inches long. Kylee is the daughter of Kortney and Derek Smid and baby sister of Natalee. Grandmother, Doreen Skillingstad reports that Kylee is a beautiful baby (and of course she is not prejudiced in any way.) Also noted by Doreen was a bit of dark hair and pretty baby girl hands with long fingers reminding Doreen of Kylee’s mother’s hands when Kortney was born. Big sister, Natalee is pleased with the new baby and pleased with being a big sister, whose job it will be to watch over and help with this little one. Speaking of Natalee, Lloyd Willey has noticed that she has the prettiest bicycle in Wasta! It is light blue with a pink saddle and basket, all white tires and pink and blue streamers hanging from the sparkly handle bars! She earned this fine new bike by graduating form kindergarten and is learning to ride it with training wheels. Dayton Skillingstad is pleased and proud of niece, Kylee and also plans to take good care of her. Dayton will finish his baseball season Sunday night and has already signed up for football! His baseball team had a good year and he enjoyed playing for the Dairy Queen Team, So now onto the Mitey Mites; Wall Eagles Little League football team. Their schedule will include Rapid City teams, some games played in Rapid City and some in Wall. Ray Williams is donating his time and expertise (he is some chef that guy) to prepare the sloppy joes and hot dogs for the Wasta July 4th fundraising lunch in the park. He didn’t seem like it would be a task beneath his capabilities when asked; he seemed happy to oblige. Ray and Jamy are good neighbors and their help with “stuff” around town is greatly appreciated. If there is anyone out there reading this who has a classic or antique car or truck it would be wonderful if you would bring it to Wasta for the parade. Don’t worry about shiny or fancy, we appreciate rusty and optimism too. How about that truck Kenny Lurz drove over a few years ago? I would have to ask Lloyd for the particulars —

Countryside News
Submitted by Lola Joyce Riggins 837-2053 Greetings… I wanted to devote this to Father’s Day but either no one will answer their phone or they don’t feel they have any news. What a bummer. I do appreciate Mary Paulsen’s helpful and thoughtfulness. Delmer and Mary Paulsen enjoyed an out to lunch in honor of their wedding anniversary the 15th. their daughter-in-law, Jackie Paulsen of Belle Fourche, received a Happy Birthday care package from Delmer and Mary for her birthday the 13th. Vern and Carol Omdahl were hosted to a meal in Deadwood in honor of Father’s Day for Vern by Jim and Debbie Chalcraft of Black Hawk, Saturday. On Sunday, Carol hosted her husband Vern to a Father’s Day dinner in Kadoka. Lucille Murnane of Jacksonville, Fla., arrived to the Delmer and Mary Paulsen home, Thursday, June 14th for a visit. The ladies are sisters. Mrs. Murnane just lost her husband Jim last year and she went on to Rapid City to visit her daughter and family, Jason and Krista Testin and her first granddaughter Jamie, who will celebrate her first birthday, June 23rd. She also went to Colorado Springs, to visit her niece Lynn Mary (Paulsen) Blaseg, Mike, Hannah and Callie and enjoyed a great time. Lucille will visit the Paulsen’s again on her way home. Vern and Carol Omdahl drove to Rapid City to join a family get-together with David and Crissa Chalcraft and Felicity, who have transferred to Salem, Oregon, to establish their new home and working conditions. Kevin also enjoyed the get together. Samantha Nelson was a weekend guest in the parental Dan and Marla Nelson home. Samantha is employed at the Lab at Black Hills State College this summer. Marla Nelson attended her 4-H Class Reunion in Kadoka over the weekend and also enjoyed the tour at Pearl hotel. Many helpers and relatives are renovating the Hotel as it is of interest as an old, old building for a sort of museum for an attraction. Well, the sad news this summer so far is the lack of hay. One rancher started Monday and he finished Thursday. The alfalfa and grass had taken a light freeze and with the shortage of rain besides being stunted it couldn’t grow. Ella Hindman accompanied Marla Nelson to the Ranch Rodeo in Kadoka, Sunday afternoon. They said there was a pretty decent crowd to cheer 10 participating teams in Wild Horse Race, Wild Cow Milking, Setter Gathering and Trailer Race. Tom Paulsen of Lead, son of Delmer and Mary Paulsen is busy as usual in the summer working with other Guard members for the summer. Marla Nelson said they had received about two inches of rain recently but when it has to soak the ground or not disappear back up there from the wind and heat it just don’t go for enough. May the Countryside put Lyle Klundt on the prayer list as Clara Belle Weller, Joyce Richardson and all you precious people that are needing improvement and healing with your health and soothe your grieving for loved ones. I see the paper had six listed last week. Thought: Do just once what others say you can’t do and you will never pay attention to their limitations again. The best way to predict the future is to create it.

FINANCIAL FOCUS
DON'T TAKE A VACATION FROM INVESTING Richard Wahlstrom www.edwardjones.com Summer is here — which means a vacation most likely isn’t far away. Whether you’re hitting the road, jumping on a plane or even enjoying a “staycation” at home, you’re probably looking forward to some down time with your family. But not every aspect of your life should be relaxed. Specifically, you don’t want to take a vacation from investing — which means you need to become a diligent, yearround investor. Here are a few suggestions that can help: •Keep on investing. Don’t head to the investment “sidelines” when the financial markets experience volatility. You don’t want to be a nonparticipant when things turn around because, historically, the early stage of any market rally is generally when the biggest gains occur. (Keep in mind that past performance of the market is not a guarantee of future results.) •Keep learning. In just about any classroom, the best students are the ones who get the most out of their education and put their learning to the best use. And the same is true of the investment world: The more you know about the forces that affect your investments’ performance, and about why you own the investments you do, the more likely you are to make the right moves — and the less likely you’ll be to make hasty and unwise decisions. •Keep your focus on the long term. As an investor, you need to look past those events — such as natural disasters, recession fears and political instability abroad — that may have noticeable shortterm effects on the financial markets but little impact over the longer term. So instead of making investment decisions based on today’s headlines, think about what you want your financial picture to look like in 10, 20 or 30 years — and take the appropriate steps to help make that picture materialize. These steps include following a long-term, disciplined investment strategy that’s suitable for your individual needs, making adjustments as time goes on and working with a professional financial advisor who knows your situation and can help you make the right choices. •Keep looking for growth opportunities. To achieve your long-term goals, such as a comfortable retirement, you’ll need to own growthoriented investments, such as stocks and other investments that contain equities. The percentage of your holdings devoted to stocks should be based on your risk tolerance, time horizon and proximity to retirement. But no matter what your situation, you want a portfolio that’s designed to help you meet your investment goals. •Keep relying on “hardworking” investments. To help ensure your investments are working hard for you, choose those vehicles that can help you in multiple ways. For example, when you invest in a 401(k) or other employer-sponsored retirement plan, your money grows on a tax-deferred basis, which means it can accumulate faster than if it were placed in an investment on which you paid taxes every year. (Keep in mind that taxes are due upon withdrawal, and withdrawals prior to age 59½ may be subject to a 10% IRS penalty.) Plus, you typically fund your 401(k) with pretax dollars, so the more you put in each year, the lower your taxable income. Furthermore, with the choices available in your plan, you can create a good mix of investments. Enjoy your vacation this summer. But no matter what the season, don’t take a break from investing. Your efforts may pay off nicely for you in the future.

POWER TO OVERCOME
by Cornelius R. Stam Every true Christian knows by experience that the Holy Spirit does not, upon saving us, take possession of us and thenceforth supernaturally cause us to live lives pleasing to God. Rather, as with salvation, so with the Christian life, He operates in the believer "by grace through faith". Powerful assistance to overcome sin is freely provided by grace, but this help must be appropriated by faith in each individual case. There is no blanket provision for continuous victory throughout our whole life. We must look to Him in faith for the help we need in each separate battle. Thus the Scripture teaching with regard to victory over sin is not that it is not possible for the believer to sin, but rather that in any given case it is possible for him not to sin. Thus too, the question in times of temptation is generally whether we truly desire to overcome, for deliverance is freely provided by grace if we will but appropriate it by faith. But just how is deliverance provided? The answer is: BY THE HOLY SPIRIT. No longer need the believer remain enslaved to sin; for the Holy Spirit within, who imparted spiritual life to begin with, will also impart strength to overcome temptation. When tried and unable even to pray as we ought, "the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities" and "maketh intercession for us" (Rom. 8:26). When weak and ill, we may be "strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man" (Eph.3:16). Indeed, the Spirit even strengthens God's people physically to overcome sin, for we read: "But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken [strengthen] your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you" (Rom. 8:11). And the following verse goes on to say: "Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh" (Rom.8:12). The thought is that, since believers have the Holy Spirit to help them overcome sin, they are debtors -- and not to the flesh, but to God, to live pleasing to Him.
State Park visitors should leave fireworks at home
The upcoming Fourth of July holiday is always a busy time in South Dakota's state parks and recreation areas. As you celebrate, Game, Fish and Parks Department officials ask you to please leave fireworks at home. According to Doug Hofer, state parks and recreation director, campgrounds are traditionally very busy with campers and other visitors enjoying the parks during the Independence Day period. “Combining fireworks and large numbers of people creates a dangerous situation,” said Hofer. “We appreciate your help to keep the parks safe and fun this Fourth of July.” Discharging fireworks is prohibited on all lands owned or leased by the South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks. The ban includes state parks, recreation areas, lakeside use areas, game production areas and nature areas. Discharging fireworks is also illegal within the boundaries of the Black Hills Forest Fire Protection District, national forests and national parks in South Dakota. For more information on the South Dakota State Parks, visit www.gfp.sd.gov or call 605-7733391.

Thirty three-person teams participated in the nine-hole scramble format tournament, which was a new record. It broke the previous record established during Philip’s centennial celebration in 2007. The golf tournament has added over $11,000 over the past 10 years for a scholarship at Philip High School.

The Looking Glass of Time
80 years ago… The old town well which started to cave during one of the recent heavy rains, has been repaired by Mrs. Miller. A concrete curbing and pump house has been erected at the place. For the past two weeks, an engine has been working almost continuously emptying the well of flood waters. Mrs. Miller has an electric motor and a pump and expects to use the water from the well for her hotel use. A band of Gypsies driving a car with an Ohio tag did not receive a very hearty welcome here. The Wall authorities were ready to greet them after being notified that the band had made an unsuccessful attempt to get away with $14.32 from one of the oil stations in Wasta, and headed them on their way. At Rapid City, Sherriff N. J. Hendrickson succeeded in getting them to return two hundred dollars which the gypsies had stolen there. During the heavy rain last Tuesday, Frank Gage and Jack Huffman were driving home from Rapid City. The water had just started running over the road west of Wasta when Mr. Gage reached it. A half hour later when Mr. Huffman reached the same spot the water was running through the door of his car. Both men came through without mishap. BIRTH: Born to Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Bielmaier, Wednesday morning, June 14, a girl. 70 years ago… A great crowd of folks, including eleven priests, helped to celebrate Father John Connolly’s twentyfifth year of service here in Wall. Jubilee Services were held at the church in the morning and this was followed by a public dinner at the Hall at noon. Besides the eleven guest Priests, there were two Sisters, Mary Romaine Bielmaier from Sturgis and Dorothy Rose Schroeder of Rapid City. Sister Bielmaier and Sister Schroeder are former Wall girls. An estimate of well over 150 dinners were served by the Catholic Ladies at noon. A large crew of fast workers landed on the Hospital grounds, Thursday evening and under the leadership of a dozen men, made short work of leveling off some of the mounds of dirt, tearing down scaffolding and cutting weeds. Tomorrow is the day set for giving the building its first coat of paint. Kenneth Lewis started Monday evening painting the high corner peaks. Howard Connolly began Monday afternoon enclosing the front porch. He hopes to have it finished Friday in order to have it included in the painting program. The first soldiers for the Rapid City airbase are expected to arrive in the near future, it was learned unofficially here Tuesday, Details of how many men or how they will be accommodated, with the airbase under construction, or how many men will be included in the contingent were not learned. Under military censorship little of that information will be made available to the public, even after the men arrive. 60 years ago… The Wall Drug Store this year is not only unique for its worldwide advertising, but also for its unusually cosmopolitan staff of workers. Working at the drug store now are two girls from Bagio, Philippine Islands; one girl from Formosa; and a black-eyed beauty from the Virgin Islands. These four young women attend Winona College in Minnesota during the winter. Also waiting on the sign attracted tourists are two Indian maids from Ft. Thompson. Altogether, there are 34 young men and women spending the summer waiting on the mad scramble of tourists attracted by Ted Hustead’s prolific advertising program. A few more employees are expected this week to take care of the daily thousands of curio-seeking and thirsty tourists. Several members of an oil seismographic survey crew are staying at the J. F. Street cabins. There are four trucks loaded with dynamite and sensitive shock recording equipment headquartering in Wall and mapping the underground structures in the vicinity for a private oil drilling concern. 50 years ago… Seventeen windows at the Wall School House were broken by one night of vandalism last week. Large chunks of cement and rocks were found inside of the building which indicated that the damage was done by other than small children. The windows broken were the high ones in the school gym. The large frosted ones in the restrooms, and windows in both the new and the old building. Another bit of vandalism which Mayor Alfred Strandell says resembles the destructive force of a tornado, occurred at the pump house at the town dam. Here windows were broken the door busted, the interior supplies and equipment broken or turned over, and even the bricks torn off the chimney. The filter tube in the dam was filled with rocks and timber. G. W. Shelton still claims that he holds the record of having the fastest racing car in Wall. His greatest trouble is getting a driver who isn’t afraid to open it up. Woody, however is being challenged by Max Hauk who has three midget racers and is building a fourth. He is certain the Number Four will top them all. The track for these races is the access roadway east of the Welsh Motel and the time for the trials is almost anytime. Two break-ins in Wall, Sunday night, created considerate excitement and a great deal of conservation around town, Monday. The Wall Lockers was entered by prying open the back door while the General Store was entered by cutting a hole through the roof. At both places the burglars broke open the safes, apparently using pliers and heavy hammers. At Wall Lockers, the safe crackers got only a small amount of small change for their trouble; but at Shelton’s they obtained approximately $175 in cash and a dozen wrist watches. 40 years ago… Mr. and Mrs. Richard White of Creighton, announce the engagement and forthcoming marriage of their daughter, Doris Ann, to Frederick M. Eisenbraun, son of Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Eisenbraun, also of Creighton. An August wedding is planned. In a close race Tuesday for the Wall Board of Election, five year term, Dean Patterson won over Bob Hays, 123 votes to 111 votes. Joan Renner was unopposed for the four year term, as was Milton Trask for the three year term. The Board will be increased by five members to seven at their July meeting. First Congregational Church was the setting of the wedding of Melanie Knock and Dwight Flatt on May 27. The Rev. Tom Tucker officiated at the ceremony before 150 guests. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Calvin Knock, Billings, Montana, and formerly of Sioux Falls. Mr and Mrs. Merl Flatt are parents of the groom. Mr. and Mrs. Flatt are students at S. D. State University. He formerly attended B. H. State College. They will be employed at Wall during the summer. 30 years ago… Nell Willuweit, Norman Geigle and Myron Williams came out on top in the June 15 Wall School Board election. Three three-year terms were up for grabs, those of Norman Geigle, Bob Hays and Catherine Zelpher. Geigle was reelected. Hays was defeated, as was candidate Martha Whitcher, and Zelpher did not choose to run for re-election. De’s Oil dropped two games in men’s softball league action last week. The Cactus “ten-runned” De’s by the score of 19-9 on June 18. In the second game on June 18, the Elkton House edged De’s 10-9, making De’s season record to date, 0-5. Two wins upped the Pennington County Courant-Eagles men’s softball team record in league play to 4-0 on June 17. The Courant team shut out Kitterman’s by the score of 10-0. The second game on June 17 went to 10 innings, with the Courant again coming out on top 12-7, against the Outlaws. In women’s softball league action on June 21, the G&W Hot Dogs defeated the Hair Raisers, 19-17. South Dakota AAU Junior Olympic Track and Field Meet was held June 12 at Pierre. Five hundred contestants from South Dakota participated, and the top four in each division qualified for regionals in Gillette, Wyoming, July 17. Jana Fauske of Wall, qualified in the 1600 meter run, which Darcy Biers and Shannon Biers, both of Scenic, qualified in the long jump and the 400 meter dash, respectively. BIRTH: Born June 18, a daughter, Jessica Lynn to Kent and Kelly Lurz. Grandparents are Neal and Peggy Lurz and Bill and Kay Leonard. Little Jessica’s greatgrandparents are Gladys Pederson and Pearl Lurz of Wall, and Lillian Leonard of Austin, Texas. 20 years ago… In 1982, 10 years ago, the Wall Celebration Group, a branch of Wall Chamber, was formed with Eileen Flatt, President; Justine Estes, Secretary and Larry Graham, Treasurer. Now 10 years later the group is still going strong with four of the original members still very active. Those still working hard for Wall’s Celebration are Butch and Ann Kitterman, Deb Deal and Eileen Flatt. In appreciation for their many hours of hard work over the last 10 years, Merl and Eileen Flatt and Butch and Ann Kitterman have been chosen as Parade Marshalls for this years Celebration parade. The Wall School Board of Education met in regular session on Wednesday evening, June 10 in the Wall School lunchroom. The Board accepted letters of resignation from LeAnn Henslin and Eddie Clark and accepted to hire Blaine Carey as the new Vo-Ag teacher. Wall Volunteer Fire Department Fire Log: On Saturday, June 13, the Wall Volunteer Fire Department responded to a call of fire at mile marker 90 on Interstate 90. A semi loaded with furniture was on fire. The furniture and semi were a total loss. The driver of the truck was taken to Rapid City Regional Hospital where it was determined he had a heart attack while driving the truck. On Monday, June 15, The Wall Volunteer Fire Department responded to a call at Wall Drug, Smoot II Dorm. the electrical fire was caused by wiring. The electric dryer outlet shorted out between the base board and cabinet. There were no injuries reported. Pastor Lyle Sloat, who is the pastor of the United Methodist Church of Wall, has accepted the pastorate for the United Methodist Churches at Oelrichs, Oral, Smithwick and Buffalo Gap. She has been the pastor here for the past three years. Her final Sunday in this parish will be June 21, 1992. 10 years ago… The Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting was held at the newly remodeled Wall Golf Course, Saturday, June 15th. The University of South Dakota School of Business recently presented scholarship to students at an awards ceremony held on the campus in Vermillion. Alumni and supporters of the School of Business provide the awards and scholarships. Mark Papousek, son of Duane and Judy Papousek of Quinn, was awarded James Taylor Marketing Scholarship. Mark is a junior at USD, majoring in Management. Jami Lea Willuweit of Creighton, and Janelle Marie Horton and Kendra Lynn Lurz, both of Wall, were recognized for academic excellence and placed on the 2002 Spring semester’s Dean’s list at South Dakota State University, Brookings.
Get ready for some serious family fun
Choose Accountability
It might surprise you-and then again, it may not-to know that many years ago I was quite a rebel. Back then, the last thing I ever wanted was to be accountable to anybody for anything. Naturally, I encountered an incredible amount of failure in my life as a result of this attitude. Once I got "whacked" up along side the head enough I finally learned that accountability is a smart way to operate. Today I actively choose to seek out accountability as often as possible. I usually go to the two toughest people on the planet who know me the best-my wife and my daughter. These special ladies do a super job of holding me accountable as I aspire to make positive change that will result in positive growth. How about you? Is there something in your own life that requires change? A bad habit or wrong mindset? An area where you know you need to experience some growth? Why not seek our someone that you trust, respect and/or love, and ask them to hold you accountable. Tell this person that you have chosen to hold yourself accountable to them. Explain what you want and why and ask him/her to to be tough on you. Yes, it might be kind of painful for both of you at times, but trust me. When you choose accountability you will experience the growth you desire.
In today's hurry-up world, many families are looking for ways to slow down a little and spend some quality time together, just having fun. The good news is that it doesn't have to cost a lot of money, and you don't have to go very far to have a great time. Here are some ways your family can make the most of family time and have some serious fun. Become day trippers. •Visit a state park. You can go on a hike or bike ride, have a picnic and enjoy the great outdoors on your own, or participate in events such as fishing tournaments, wildlife education, moonlight walks or star gazing talks. •Play tourist in a city that's close by, but you haven't been to before. Get suggestions from your friends using Bing's new social search features; someone you know may have recently been there and have some great ideas. Or you could find people who are experts on that area and can help you find the perfect place to visit. Have some homegrown fun. •Art, history, science, kidthemed and quirky - there are all kinds of museums just waiting to be explored. Keep an eye out for special exhibits and family events. Many museums have free days and no- or low-cost activities and classes you can all do together. •Pitch a tent or two in the back yard and spend the night under the stars. Grill dinner, or make s'mores over the fire pit, and "rough it" together without ever leaving home. •If you've always wanted to go on a treasure hunt, geocaching just might be for you. You use a GPSenabled device and clues to navigate to a specific set of coordinates in order to locate hidden containers. Search online for geocaching near you. Help your community. •Sign up to help with or participate in a charity race. From planning and organizing, to checking people in, setting up water stations and actually racing, there are plenty of ways you can help make
a fundraising event a success. •Sowing, watering, weeding and harvesting - there's always something that needs to be done in a community garden. Even the littlest ones can have some fun doing good. •Make a difference in your neighborhood - www.DoSomething.org and Bing have teamed up to inspire people to "do good" in their neighborhood by hosting various events across the country this summer. Visit www.bing.com/doing to see if they'll be stopping by a neighborhood near you, or learn how you can participate online. Be hometown foodies. •From apples to zucchini, you can find just about any kind of fresh produce, as well as bread, honey, herbs and more at a farmers market. Bring home some fresh ingredients and experiment with new recipes. •Restaurants - Try that new restaurant down the street, or the one you've driven by a few times but have never been to. If you're not sure where to go, or if you want to know if a restaurant is good, look it up on www.Bing.com and check out the new feature which allows you to do this all in one place. It shows you reviews from across the web, location maps and directions, as well as interior shots - you can make a reservation, find where you're going and see what it's like, all without leaving your search page.

FOCUS ON THE FAMILY
with Dr. James Dobson
Dr. Dobson Answers your Questions
QUESTION: Usually my spouse and I are pretty good at having constructive disagreements, but there have been a couple of occasions when our arguments got out of control. What should we do if this happens again? ANSWER: You're not alone — it's easy to lose control when emotions are running high. Spouses can become irrational for many reasons. It can stem from feeling overwhelmed, threatened, provoked, criticized or just misunderstood. These feelings may not be wrong in and of themselves, but they can be expressed in inappropriate ways. It's at this point that a dangerous line is crossed. As the Bible says, "A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control" (Proverbs 29:11). As a matter of fact, some people seem only too glad to lose control during an argument. There's a kind of adrenaline rush that comes with expressing anger, and it can be addictive. This is something you'll need to watch out for if you really want to keep your disagreements civil and constructive. Before getting involved in a confrontation with your spouse, examine yourself to make sure that your heart and intentions are in the right place. If one or the other of you has reason to fear that the argument will spin out of control, the openness and honesty required to make the discussion a success may be hopelessly squelched. Equally inhibiting is the fear that, once the discussion gets started, one's partner is likely to dredge up issues from the past. This can be overwhelming to the spouse who tends to forget, or wants to forget, things said and done in anger. If you want to maintain control, then, avoid the temptation to rehash past offenses and mistakes. You should also steer clear of aggressive and passive/aggressive behavior. In most marriages, one spouse tends to be more of an aggressive pursuer in arguments while the other adopts a quieter, more passive method of nagging or blaming. Both approaches are destructive. Where there is bullying in a relationship, it's best to find a constructive way of dealing with it rather than living in fear. Sober, straightforward honesty is the most effective policy. It's true that there are times when a gentle answer can turn away wrath (Proverbs 15:1), but only if it's intentional, proactive and positive. This approach should never be adopted out of fear of provoking your partner to anger. Physical violence is never okay. Threats of physical violence must be handled immediately. If you feel threatened, get to a safe place right away. Put distance between you and the person endangering you. Call the police if necessary. Bear in mind, too, that physical violence doesn't stop without intervention. Abusers must learn to manage anger. Once the danger is past, insist on counseling. In the meantime, educate yourself about abuse cycles and learn how to protect yourself in the future. Out-of-control arguments don't always involve violence, of course. No matter how much you and your
spouse love each other, no matter how understanding you try to be, and no matter how strongly you want to avoid hurting each other, there will be times when arguments get out of control. You can prepare for those times and minimize the negative effects by being aware of your own physical reactions and triggers, by taking responsibility for your own feelings and by stopping to pray — individually and with your partner — whenever things seem to be getting too intense. Whatever happens, make forgiveness your number one priority. This doesn't mean that you will necessarily agree. It certainly doesn't imply that abuse should be ignored or excused. It does mean giving up your determination to get revenge. QUESTION: My husband serves in the military, and we are often separated for long periods of time. He is a wonderful husband and father, yet I struggle when he returns because of the abrupt change in my role. When he's deployed, I have to take care of all aspects of our family's life; when he comes home, he takes the upper hand in certain areas. I want to defer to his leadership at such times, but shifting gears is hard
for me. How can I do a better job of transitioning? ANSWER: Before saying anything else, we want you to know how much we appreciate the sacrifices you and your family are making. As far as we're concerned, both you and your spouse occupy key positions on the front lines of the worldwide battle for freedom and human rights. We can't thank you enough for everything you're doing to serve your country and your fellow man. It's our privilege to come alongside you in any way we can. To help ensure smoother transitions and head off domestic tension after a prolonged separation,we recommend an intentional, pro-active approach. Prior to his next tour of duty, set aside some time to sit down and talk things out between yourselves. A purposeful discussion of hidden expectations and unspoken assumptions can go a long way toward eliminating bumps in the road that might otherwise take you by surprise. Your first assignment is to admit to yourselves and to each other that the process of "shifting gears" can be painful and problematic. Be aware of the potential for conflict and make up your minds to discuss it openly and honestly. Face the fact that many couples fight bitterly just prior to a separation since, psychologically, it's easier to part when you're mad than when you're feeling tender toward one another. Be aware that the homecoming is likely to be complicated by all kinds of elusive emotional issues. Cultivate an awareness of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and think about ways of responding if it becomes a factor in your marriage. Both of you should realize that the spouse who remains on the home front has no choice except to assume a burden of responsibility that would normally be divided between two people — to function, in
effect, as a single parent. This almost inevitably leads to confusion concerning marital roles when the absent partner re-enters the picture. It can also create a situation in which both parties feel unnecessary. At such times it's incredibly helpful and healing for the returning spouse to acknowledge his wife's efforts with a simple "thank you" and a humble offer to pick up the slack wherever she feels it's most needed. If you're aware of this beforehand, you can make a joint decision — perhaps by way of a written agreement — to be patient and understanding with one another when you come back together. If you have children, and if they're old enough to understand and appreciate the challenges you're facing as a family, it would be a good idea to include them in a similar conversation. You may even want to consider the option of doing some family counseling with a trained Christian therapist. Encourage your kids to voice their feelings. Ask them questions such as, "What's the same and what's different when Dad's away? How do things change when he comes home?" Most importantly, come up with a plan to maintain as much continuity and "normalcy" as possible in the lives of your children during periods of transition and change.
