First Wall Ambulance was a Harold Delbridge honored for 1969 Pontiac Station wagon his years of rodeo announcing
by Laurie Hindman Members of the Wall Ambulance in May of 1969 had recently passed the advanced Red Cross course. Patrolmen Ken Wernke and Harold Hoffman, Norman Klingbile, Al Drewitz, DeWayne Glassgow Jr., Doug Culhane, Deane Joyce, Lee Vanderbush and Gary Stone. The Wall ambulance which was a 1969 Pontiac station wagon was fully equipped and had already made a number of runs to Rapid City, Philip and Kadoka. The new ambulance carried two of the latest type of fold-in cots. An attendant’s seat is used when only a single cot is used and can be folded into the floor when both cots are in use. The unused cot fits under the one in use. The ambulance has a two-way radio and two sets of oxygen tank equipment. A schedule of fees has yet to be established although a percentage reduction will be allowed to those families who have or are contributing to the cost of the ambulance service. This article was taken from the May 22, 1969 Pennington County Courant edition. In the past when Highway Patrolman Ken Wernke would respond to a road accident, he would have to load the patient in the back of his patrol car and drive the injured to the hospital himself or Walsh Funeral Home who owned a station wagon would transport the patient. Wernke knew that an ambulance would be able to provide better care for an injured patient then he or the funeral home could. Finances were the main obstacle of why Wall didn’t have an ambulance. Norm Klingbile who was the Wall City Sheriff for 26 years said, “by the good graces of townships and the City of Wall a 1969 Pontiac Station wagon was purchased.” Klingbile went on to say they had to salvage items to outfit the ambulance but it had a gurney and oxygen and they would no longer have to wait for an ambulance to come out of Rapid City if someone was critically injured. Klingbile noted the ambulance was served by all volunteers and when Dave Hahn moved to town in 1971, he taught First Aid training. Hahn said volunteers had 15 - 20 hours for First Responder training and an EMT course was 80 - 90 hours. The optimum requirement for EMTs today is 190 hours. While the training today is better for patients, Hahn said “It is making it impossible for volunteers to commit to such a training.” In 1971, a new Pontiac Station wagon was purchased. Hahn said, “it was outfitted much like the older one but there was still not enough room to perform CPR.” All they basically could do was transport, apply oxygen and stop the bleeding. When a run was made to Rapid City, Hahn said “they would drive between 80 - 90 mph and the ambulance had a low band police frequency radio.” If the roads were drifted in the ambulance would follow a snow plow, much as they do today. In 1975, the first real ambulance was purchased. It was a Ford vehicle which had room for EMTs to stand-up in, room for a heart monitor and extraction equipment. They were now able to provide better care for patients especially heart care patients. A “Stair Chair Cot” was purchased so patients wouldn’t have to be taken down a flight of stairs in a regular chair. Hahn noted that in the mid 1980’s the ambulance would make 100 runs a year and they didn’t have nearly the false runs as they do today. Hahn attributed the high rate of false runs today to cell phones. The Wall Ambulance still covers the same area and Hahn said, “the level of care for broken bones is the same but heart patients have a better chance in the new ambulance.” The Wall Ambulance is facing a challenge that may see its services come to an end and the possibility of having to use a patrol car to transport injured. The Wall Rodeo Booster Club honored Harold Delbridge for being their rodeo announcer for 23 years. Josh Geigle president of the Wall Rodeo Booster Club presented Harold a belt buckle in apprecaition for announcing their rodeo over the years for them. Dustin Curr annouce the following while the award was presented to Harold: On behalf of the Wall Booster Club; we would like to honor Harold Delbridge on his Retirement from the Wall Regional High School Rodeo. Harold has been the rodeo announcer for 23 years, starting in 1989 - 2012. Harold Delbridge and his wife Karen make their home in Red Owl, S.D. They have four children: Arlin, Chad, Amanda and Candace. Harold became a pastor in 1979, at Meadow, SD, and in 1985, he became the pastor for Union Center, Elms Springs, and Stoneville County Church. In 1983, he began announcing 4H, youth, high school practice, regional, and state rodeos. Harold's love for the sport of rodeo and working with the youth continue to grow over the years.

Harold has decided that it is time to let someone else (younger generation) take the reins of announcing the Wall Regional Rodeo. Harold, you will truly be missed in the Wall arena!!!

Philip Theater Group to perform country musical “Honky Tonk Angels”
by Del Bartels Three talented ladies in the Philip community, each with confident and strong singing voices, team together to perform the country musical “Honky Tonk Angels.” Maureen Palecek, Barb Bowen and Deb Smith play characters who are as different from each other as can be, except they all have had county backgrounds and lifelong dreams of actually using their singing talents. The musical is very heavy in the singing department. While the well-known songs – solos, duets and group renditions – come almost nonstop, there is a basic plot and difference between the characters. Bowen begins the play as a narrator speaking directly to the audience. Her character is a stuck-ina-rut wife and mother of six who live in a double-wide mobile home. She goes from “Stand by Your Man” to “Don’t Come Home Drinkin’ ” with a comic ease. She will leave behind family to find her dream. Palecek’s character is a disgruntled and highly put-upon secretary whose love life has failed at least twice. Her first solo, almost obviously, is “9 to 5.” A bit later, her character rips loose – and into the male audience members – with “These Boots Are Made for Walking.” She has nothing to leave behind but an autographed bowling ball from her first husband, a shotgun from her second husband and a too interested boss. Smith is a country gal who has been taking care of her father since her mother’s death, though her sibling could help. Portraying the epitome of “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” she refuses to throw away her dreams. She makes up her mind to head for Nashville, or Las Vegas, or wherever, but she leaves to “I Will Always Love You.” This is the vocal transition to the three women heading to the big city. “So with bus tickets in our hands, and our hearts in our throats, we were on our way to Music City USA,” said Bowen. Meeting on the bus and riding through a thunderstorm, the gals encourage each other. Bowen shares her ever-present pork rinds and baloney sandwiches. They eventually work themselves into a frenzy and hold a hootenanny on the bus. “Three strange women all traveling to a strange place. It’s no coincidence. It’s meant to be.” And the three become a group, The Honky Tonk Angels.
S.D. Guard to host public event to celebrate 150-year heritage
The South Dakota National Guard officially marked 150 years of service to the state and nation on January 27, 2012, as the birth date of the organization’s 1862 formation. To celebrate this historic event, the SDNG is inviting the general public, as well as members of the media, to attend a free, open house event at Camp Rapid in Rapid City on Friday, June 8 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. An official ceremony will kick off the event at 11:30 a.m. with comments from Gov. Dennis Daugaard and Maj. Gen. Tim Reisch, the adjutant general of the SDNG. Following the remarks, free food and beverages will be available, as well as live music from the SDNG Army Band, and tours of the new Joint Force Headquarters Readiness Center, Barracks and Education Building and Troop Medical Clinic. An array of past and present military equipment, vehicles, artifacts and uniforms will also be on display, to include a number of informational kiosks highlighting the history of the SDNG.
Three characters each leave their wildly different lives to strike out as country performers. They meet, join, and within months become the Nashville sensation “Honky Tonk Angels.” But, will this be their last show?

Badlands National Park begins summer season
Sunday, May 27th marked the beginning of summer ranger programs at Badlands National Park. Visit the park this summer and learn about fossils, geology, ecology and local history. Check out http://www.nps.gov/badl for more information. Ben Reifel Visitor Center is open from 7:00 - 7:00 for the summer. White River Visitor Center, located in the park's South Unit is open from 8:00 - 5:00 daily. Special Night Sky programs are offered throughout the summer, Friday-Monday each week, and begin immediately after the Evening Program. Evening Programs begin nightly at dusk. Meet at the amphitheater, located next to the Cedar Pass Campground a quarter mile from the Ben Reifel Visitor Center. Join the ranger for a Star Tour, and stay for opportunities to view celestial objects through several professional telescopes. June 4, 2012 marks the grand opening of the Saber Site and fossil prep lab at Badlands National Park. The fossil quarry, located just outside the Ben Reifel Visitor Center, will be staffed by paleontologists and park rangers through the summer. The fossil prep lab will be in the visitor center classroom. Stop by between 9:00 – 4:30 daily to observe science in action and learn more about the discoveries being made. The Saber Site contributes greatly to understanding the fossil record at Badlands National Park. On May 30, 2010, seven year old Kylie Ferguson discovered a fossil in this same spot while participating in a Junior Ranger program. She did the right thing – she reported her find, allowing paleontologists to identify the fossil as the skull of an extinct saber tooth cat, Hoplophoneus. While all fossil finds are scientifically important, this one was even more so because of the condition of the skull, and the fact that it contained bite marks. CT scans have been done of the skull in a partnership between Rapid City Regional Hospital, South Dakota School of Mines & Technology and Badlands National Park in a quest to determine the fate of this animal. The public is welcome to observe and interact with paleontologists and park rangers at the site and the lab, and perhaps even be present as more fossils are uncovered. Visit the White River Visitor Center, found along SD Highway 27, 20 miles south of Scenic, SD to discover more about the park's cultural stories. Attend a walk or storytelling program throughout the summer. Coming events: •The fourth Badlands Heritage Celebration will take place July 20-22. Activities will take place in both the North and South Units of the park. •The first Badlands' Astronomy Festival will take place August 1719. Many special guests, activities and presentations will be announced closer to that date. Badlands is known for its rugged beauty and striking geologic deposits containing one of the world's richest fossil records. The rich cultural history of the Oglala Lakota people and local homesteaders is also integral to the park story. Visitors are encouraged to bring water, a jacket, sunscreen and insect repellent for all park programs. Regular park entrance fees apply. For information on lodging and camping reservations in the park, please refer to Cedar Pass Lodge at http://www.cedarpasslodge. com/lodging.www.nps.gov About the National Park Service. More than 20,000 National Park Service employees care for America’s 397 national parks and work with communities across the nation to help preserve local history and create close-to-home recreational opportunities.

Other performers for the musical “Honky Tonk Angels” include, from left: Crystal Martinez – back-up singer, Glenn Parsons – guitar and fill-in singer, Mike Seagar – bass electric guitar, Marilyn Millage – piano, and Chuck Carstensen – lead six-string guitar.
Within weeks, they make it big. But, the musical selections have switched from songs such as “Amazing Grace” to “Night Life,” “Harper Valley PTA,” “Fancy” and “Barroom Habits.” There is a controversy among the group’s members over the song selections, which are about not very respectable women. Could this controversy break up the group? Could this be their last performance? Will the circle be unbroken? All the instrumental music is live with no recordings or tapes. Band members include Glenn Parsons, Chuck Carstensen, Mike Seagar, Marilyn Millage and Crystal Martinez. The play’s country band is in the background as instrumental back-up during the first scene. They still play during the second scene, though from behind the curtain, while the singing action is in front of the curtain and even sometimes into and involving the audience. In the second act, the band and back-up singers are prominent performers in the Honky Tonk Heaven bar and showroom in Nashville. The musical play is co-directed by Marcy Ramsey, Diane Walker and Nancy Ekstrum. Performances will be 7:00 p.m., Friday and Saturday, June 8 and 9, and at 2:00 p.m., Sunday, June 10, in the Fine Arts Building at the Philip High School.

Social Security News
Your Questions, Social Security’s Answers Question: Do members of Congress have to pay into Social Security? Answer: Yes, they do. Members of Congress, the President and Vice President, federal judges, and most political appointees, have paid taxes into the Social Security program since January 1984. They pay into the system just like everyone else, no matter how long they have been in office. Learn more about Social Security benefits at www.socialsecurity.gov. Question: I currently receive Social Security disability benefits. I now have a second serious disability. Can my monthly benefit amount be increased? Answer: No. Although your Social Security disability benefit eligibility is based on having a severe disability, the benefit amount is based on the amount of your lifetime earnings before your disability began and not the number, degree, or severity of your disability. For more information, go to www.socialsecurity.gov/dibplan/dapproval2.htm. Question: Is there a time limit on how long I can collect Social Security disability benefits? Answer: Your disability benefits will continue as long as your medical condition has not improved and you remain unable to work. Your case will be reviewed at regular intervals to make sure you still are disabled. If you still are receiving disability benefits when you reach full retirement age, we will automatically convert them to retirement benefits. See www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/10153.html#6 for more information on disability. Question: Does Social Security pay benefits to prisoners? Answer: We pay benefits under both the Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs. Both of these programs prohibit payments to most prisoners. Social Security benefits are suspended if an otherwise eligible person is confined in a jail, prison, or other penal institution for more than 30 continuous days due to conviction of a crime. We cannot pay benefits to someone who, by court order, is confined in an institution at public expense in connection with a criminal case if the court finds that the person is: guilty, but insane; not guilty of such an offense by reason of insanity or similar factors (such as a mental disease); or incompetent to stand trial for such an alleged offense. Also, we cannot pay benefits to someone who, immediately upon completion of a prison sentence for conviction of a criminal offense (an element of which is sexual activity), is confined by court order in an institution at public expense. The confinement must be based on a court finding that the individual is a sexually dangerous person or sexual predator (or a similar finding.) However, if a person is not confined in prison or other similar place, benefits may be paid to an eligible individual. Question: What are the limits on what I can own to be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI)? Answer: Social Security counts real estate, bank accounts, cash, stocks, and bonds toward the limits on what you can own. You may be able to get SSI if your resources are worth no more than $2,000. A couple may be able to get SSI if they have resources worth no more than $3,000. If you own property you are trying to sell, you may be able to get SSI while trying to sell it. Social Security does not count everything you own in deciding whether you have too many resources to qualify for SSI. For example, we generally do not count: the home you live in and the land it is on; life insurance policies with a face value of $1,500 or less; your car; burial plots for you and immediate family; and up to $1,500 in burial funds for you and up to $1,500 in burial funds for your spouse. Learn more about SSI at www.socialsecurity.gov/ssi.

known in Washington, D.C, and is a voice for education and South Dakota in Washington. Coleen has also taken an integral role in organizing Dakota STEP committees in our school,” continued this coworker. “Coleen works as unofficial chairman of this, helping our various committees work together.” Coleen’s nominators commend her for the way she mentors other teachers. “She is also a great sounding board for the staff at the school,” said a nominator, who added that she is known to make amazing cinnamon rolls for early morning meetings. According to another nominator, Coleen is constantly reminding the staff that they are in education for the students – first and foremost. “Every fiber of Coleen’s body is dedicated to our youth,” said this nominator. “Developing programs, creating opportunities for individual growth and encouraging students to strive for betterment of self are but a fraction of what Coleen does.” Students know she has high expectations of them. They also know that she is a wise and hard working person who uses her talents to help them and allow them to shine. Offered a student, “I have had Mrs. Keffeler for a teacher in three different classes and she is definitely one of the best teachers at Sturgis Brown High School. She never leaves students without answers if they ask for help. She will put off what she is doing to help us. She is hard working and strives to find the best opportunities for her students. Through her dedication to make the school a positive environment in which to learn, Mrs. Keffeler has provided students with a sincere attitude and outlook on school. She is truly a good role model for us.”
SDACD Supports Bipartisan Sodsaver legislation
The South Dakota Association of Conservation Districts (SDACD) supports the work of Reps. Kristi Noem (R-SD) and Tim Walz (DMN) on their recent sodsaver legislation to address crop insurance inequities and preserve habitats for game species on native sod and on grasslands producers cannot certify have ever been cropped. SDACD also supports an identical provision included in the Farm Bill passed by the Senate Agriculture Committee. That provision was introduced by Senator John Thune (R-SD). It’s just common sense to reduce crop insurance assistance for less productive land," said SDACD executive director Angela Ehlers. "Decisions to bring acreage back into production should be based on the ability of the land to produce; not on whether or not you can insure it. By addressing crop insurance fairness, the sodsaver legislation will protect fragile lands, preserve habitat and ultimately save taxpayers money." The Protect our Prairies Act would reduce crop insurance assistance for the first four years for crops grown on native sod and certain grasslands converted to cropland. The Congressional Budget Office estimates the legislation could save taxpayers nearly $200 million over 10 years. According to Jack Majeres, National Association of Conservation Districts second vice president and Dell Rapids farmer, this issue is of particular importance to South Dakota and the north central United States, where many areas of land border on prairie development. "The sodsaver legislation is a smart approach to working lands management where conservation and agriculture go hand-in-hand, "Majeres said. "As the costs of land and commodity prices increase, there’s more pressure to put the native grasslands into grain production to be used for grazing and row crops. These fragile lands need to be protected from erosion, and the native grasses provide that conservation benefit along with providing needed wildlife habitat."

Wall Golf Course to sponsor “Golf For Guardianship”
The Guardianship Program is busy selling cards for its annual fundraiser, “Golf For Guardianship”. “Golf for Guardianship” is selling a golf card listing 88 golf courses across the state. For $30.00 a nine-hold round or 50 percent of an 18 hole round can be played at each course using the “Golf For Guardianship” golf card. Courses listed in the area are: Wall Golf Course. In 2011, over $10,000 was raised to provide guardianship services to adults in South Dakota with disabilities.

S.D. Highway Patrol conducts statewide enforcement campaign
The South Dakota Highway Patrol conducted a state-wide enforcement saturation on Friday, May 25 to kick off their “100 Days of Heat” Safe Driving Campaign. Summer is a deadly time of year for drivers on South Dakota roads with more than half of South Dakota’s traffic fatalities happening during the summer months. Each year, the days with the highest travel and car accident numbers are the holidays – Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day. Troopers around the state were out in force on all Interstate and state highways Friday, the start of the Memorial Day weekend. Troopers issued traffic citations and warnings for a wide variety of violations. Statewide totals for Friday, May 25 include 278 citations and 544 warnings for speeding, 11 DUI arrests and 27 drug arrests. One hundred seat belt violations were also addressed by Troopers. Fortunately, during Friday’s campaign, there were no fatalities, and only three injury and six noninjury accidents. “Our mantra remains the same: Use your seatbelt. Don’t drink and drive. Follow the speed limit,” says Col. Craig Price, superintendent of the South Dakota Highway Patrol. “If you obey those rules, everyone will have a safe and enjoyable summer.” For more information on the 100 Days of Heat campaign, visit http://www.100daysofheat.com/

Protect your pets from pests
For pet owners, warm weather brings the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors with their furry loved ones. But it also brings the risk of flea and tick infestation. Veterinarians across the country are expecting an abundance of fleas and ticks this year, due in part to warmer winter temperatures in some areas of the nation. "Fleas and ticks are more than simple nuisances for your pets," said Laura Petree, DVM, Manager of Technical Services for Central Garden and Pet Company. "They can cause your pet discomfort, and in the case of ticks, put your pets and your family at risk for a variety of diseases." Dr. Petree says that flea eggs can account for 50 percent of a domestic flea infestation. One adult female flea can lay up to 50 eggs per day. If your pet has 10 fleas, your problem suddenly multiplies to 15,000 fleas in a month. "In order to effectively protect your dog or cat from fleas and ticks, you need to address any initial infestation problem," she says. Preventing problems Prevention is the best course of action. Making your yard unfriendly to pests is a good place to start. •Mow regularly, keep shrubs trimmed, and rake up leaves. Keep the garbage covered so it won't attract rodents. •Outdoor sprays can be used on lawns, flowers, trees and shrubs. They kill and repel fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, ants, crickets and other insects. •Whenever you groom your dog or cat, check for fleas and ticks. Signs of fleas include redness and scratching, as well as what's known as flea dirt - black flea droppings left on your pet's coat. Ticks are most commonly found around the neck, in the ears, in the folds between the legs and body, and in between the toes. •Topical treatments contain an insect growth regulator (IGR) that kills flea eggs and prevents re-infestation. They kill and repel fleas, ticks and mosquitoes for up to 30 days. Many topical treatments are messy to apply. Consider using the Adams Smart Shield Applicator, which keeps liquid off your hands and lets you quickly get uniform applications down to your pet's skin. •Shampoos clean your pet by eliminating adult fleas, ticks and flea dirt. The active ingredients must come in contact with the pests for a certain period of time in order to be effective. Results are immediate. However, because shampoos have no long-lasting effects, it's a good idea to follow the shampoo with a dip or maintenance product. •Mists are used to kill fleas, ticks and mosquitos on dogs and cats instantly. Flea eggs and larvae will be prevented for one to two months. Controlling an infestation Sometimes, despite your best efforts, your pet brings home some unwanted pests. Here's what you can do: •Vacuum before the first home treatment, then daily for the next few weeks. This will help remove newly emerged fleas, flea dirt, eggs and some larvae from the carpets. •Treating your home with carpet powders, carpet sprays, room foggers or home sprays will help control fleas. Take care of your pet and your family by having the right prevention and treatment options for your furry family member.

THE LAW & THE WRATH OF GOD
by Cornelius R. Stam Romans 4:15 clearly states that "the law worketh wrath," but so many people, it seems, do not wish to see this. Even some clergymen tell us that God gave the Law to help us to be good, when God Himself says the very opposite; that it was given to show us that we "The law worketh wrath." Every criminal knows this and every sinner should know it, for the Bible has much to say on the subject. Rom. 3:19,20 declares that the Law was given "that every mouth may be stopped, and that all the world may be brought in guilty before God," and this passage goes on to say: "Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in His sight; for by the law is the knowledge of sin." II Cor. 3:7,9 calls the Law "the ministration of condemnation" and "the ministration of death." Gal. 3:10 says that those who are "of the works of the law," i.e., who seek to make themselves acceptable to God by keeping the Law, "are under a curse," because the Law can only condemn them. Those who approach God, expecting eternal life in return for "good works" are offering Him their terms -- which He will never accept. God will not sell justification to those already under condemnation for sin. But He does offer sinners complete justification by grace because: "Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written; cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree" (Gal. 3:13). Thank God, those who trust in Christ, "having redemption, through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace" (Eph. 1:7), "being justified, freely by His [God's] grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus" (Rom. 3:24).

June 6, 1972 - On this date in SDNG history - Annual Training Camp Rapid, Badlands and Roubaix Lake areas - Prelude to the Rapid City flood on June 9, 1972. On June 6, 1972, there were nearly 2,000 South Dakota Army National Guard Soldiers at annual training (AT) in the Camp Rapid area. The training in 1972, began on the weekend of June 3 for 19 of the South Dakota Army National Guard units. These units were in four locations. The 147th Field Artillery's Group Headquarters, 1st Battalion, and 2nd Battalion, along with the 216th Ordnance Company and 1085th Medical Detachment were located at the Badlands Bombing Range. This artillery range was located approximately 50 miles southwest of Rapid City off state Highway 40, now renumbered Highway 44. Two units, the 842nd Engineer Company and the 214th Engineer Company were bivouacked near Roubaix Lake, about 40 miles northwest of Rapid City in the Northern Black Hills. Most of the units were located on Camp Rapid. Those located at Camp Rapid were Headquarters, South Dakota Army National Guard; 129th Public Affairs Detachment; 109th Engineer Group; HHD 109th Engineer Battalion; 730th Medical Company; 665th Maintenance Company; 147th Army Band; 235th General Supply Company; 139th Transportation Battalion; 1742nd Transportation Company; and the 740th Transportation Company. There was a present for duty strength of 2,004 for this annual training period, 1,907 of whom were in and around the Camp Rapid area. The 211th Engineer Company, with a present for duty strength of 97, was involved in bridge training at Camp Grafton, N.D. Prior to the change of Army Training Directives in 1980, units traditionally trained through the end of the duty day on Friday of the first week, then released the troops on pass for the weekend to return before reveille on the following Monday morning. Ninety percent of the unit members would be on pass over the weekend. A duty officer and about 10 percent of the unit strength remained on duty over the weekend to provide security of vehicles, weapons and equipment. This was the case in 1972, so on June 6 most members were planning to go home over the weekend, leaving after duty hours on June 9. June 9, 1972 - On this date in SDNG history - Rapid City Flood of 1972: Extremely heavy rains which began in the late afternoon of June 9, 1972, caused the Sheriff of Lawrence County to notify the Adjutant General, Maj. Gen. Corning, of possible need of National Guard support if flooding in the Northern Hills continued. The call was received at approximately 6:45 p.m. Maj. Gen. Corning relayed the information to Col. Elroy (Stretch) Lemaster, deputy adjutant general, who in turn called the duty officer, Capt. Donald Huls, to alert the commanding officers at Camp Rapid of possible flood duty. Lemaster called for a briefing, to be held immediately at the Camp Rapid Emergency Operating Center (EOC). Col. Lemaster had only begun his briefing when calls for assistance started coming into State Radio, which was located in the EOC. The first calls were from the Highway Patrol and Pennington County Sheriff's Department to blockade Nemo Road, and assistance in rescue of a vehicle washed off the road near Cleghorn Canyon. Most Guardsmen on Camp Rapid were reporting for duty, however, more manpower was needed and the call went out over radio and television for all Guardsmen at annual training to report to Camp Rapid. Only 655 Guardsmen were in annual training at Camp Rapid. One thousand fifteen artillerymen and support troops were in the Badlands some fifty miles east of Rapid City and 237 engineer troops were at Roubaix Lake west of Rapid City in the Black Hills. Units in the Badlands had just completed their first week of annual training and were given the weekend off to enjoy the Black Hills with their families. Family Day for the Artillery Group had just finished in the afternoon. To get the call to all Guardsmen on pass was impossible. No confirmed figures are available of just how many reported in that fateful night. It was impossible to keep

unit integrity as calls for assistance were answered as rapidly as men reported in. Rescue units were made up of engineers artillerymen, transportation, maintenance, medics, aviators, and stat headquarters personnel. Getting the job done was paramount. Capt. Bob Mallow, with a crew of five other Soldiers from the 235th Supply Company and six men from the 740th Transportation Company were dispatched at about 9:30 p.m. on Friday to close Nemo Road at the request of the Pennington County Sheriff. They were flagged down by a woman saying her three children were trapped on the other side of the creek. About that time a pickup truck coming down the road reported seeing a car going into the creek. The driver thought there were people in the car because the dome light had come on. The crew found the car and Second Gary Englestad, Pfc. Freeman Phillips, Lt. John Parke and PFC Gary Reinhold secured themselves with ropes and went into the creek. They found the car was empty. On their return, the water rose and the current got stronger, forcing the four men into a tree. In the next 20, minutes the water climbed between 15 and 20 feet. It was during the rescue missions in that area that two South Dakota National Guard Soldiers, Second Lt. Gary Engelstad and Pfc. Freeman Phillips lost their lives on Box Elder Creek. Mallow and the remainder of the Soldiers were isolated and could not get back to Camp Rapid until the next morning. First Sgt. Myron Corbin of Headquarters Battery, Second Battalion, 147th Field Artillery, Webster, S.D., was known to be in downtown Rapid City when the floodwaters struck and how Corbin became a victim has never been determined. Many other National Guard individuals and teams performed rescue mission throughout Rapid City and the Black Hills area. They did yeoman work and the number of lives they saved can only be told by those whose lives they did save. Rescue teams reporting back to Camp Rapid brought refugees and recovered bodies. Some estimates ran as high as 1,000 individuals saved. Refugees were taken to the armory or local churches and given cots, blankets and food. It was impossible to get to mortuaries to deliver bodies as the bridges over Rapid Creek were out. The lights in the entire city went out about 11:47 p.m. Fortunately, at the Camp Rapid EOC, emergency power and water were available. Prior to this, lights in the flooded area went out early in the evening which caused more danger to those attempting rescue operations. Downed wires were everywhere and fast moving debris of every description made it even more hazardous to operate. Trees, light poles, automobiles, trailer houses, and homes were moving in the flooded area at speeds up to 40 mph.

The Looking Glass of Time
80 years ago… The reduction in teacher’s salaries for the coming year here in Wall proves to be less than one percent instead of five as originally planned. The salaries for the past year and the tentative schedule for the coming year are as follows: 1931-32 1932-33 Supt. $2400.00 $2280.00 Prin. 2200.00 2100.00 H. Ec. 1440.00 1350.00 Eng. T 1350.00 1350.00 7&8 990.00 1300.00 4, 5 & 6 990.00 945.00 1, 2 & 3 990.00 945.00 TOTALS $10,360.00 $10,270.00 This shows a reduction of $90 which is about eight-tenths of one percent less than last year. And this same reduced salary schedule is $435 more than paid the year before 1930-31. The freeze of the past week did some damage to both grain and gardens, tomato plants and beans were the principal loss in the gardens. The closing ceremonies of the 1931-32 school year took place with the Commencement Exercises, Friday evening, where twelve seniors and five eighth graders received their diplomas. High School graduates were Alvin Schone, Alice Ramey, Edward Johnston, Duane Martinson, Russell LeCocq, Lila Dixon, Caroline Hall, Charles Douglas, Loyal Gorseth, Anna Kraft, Helen Coleman and Emil Muller. Those who received eighth grade diplomas were Gordon Franklin, Lenore Johnson, Helen Lurz, Donald Schone, and Mary Jane Schone. 70 years ago… A month’s coyote kill by Wayne Percy, who was champion coyote hunter in Pennington County last year, numbered 53 pups and an old one. He brought the skins of the animals into the county auditor’s office Friday to make bounty claims. He said he had killed all the animals the past month, and that he got the pups by locating dens and killing them there. He claimed bounty on 44 coyotes last year. Petitions were circulated Friday for Hobe Kitterman, Wm. Clark and Harvey Stone for members of the Wall School Board to fill the three offices which would be vacant June 30. Mrs. Alice Mills petition for treasurer was also circulated. Since no other petitions were filed, there will be no school election. Harvey Stone’s petition was circulated in place of R. F. Bruce who did not wish to again serve as a member. Since Bruce was a holdover member, Stone will hold office for a two year period. Hobe Kitterman was appointed to fill the vacancy brought about by the resignation of G. W. Mill’s. He and Clark will be now declared elected for three year terms. The stiff wind about 7:30 Monday evening caused slight damage to buildings on the Johnnie Bielmaier and Tony Ogerlie farms. Sixteen steel grain storage bins with a total capacity of between 35,000 to 40,000 bushels have been assigned for Wall. There were twenty-four of these bins assigned for Pennington County and would all have been erected in Rapid City, had not E. C. Smoot influenced the commission to place the bins in the grain areas. The bins are expected this weekend and will be erected on resettlement property east of Pete Mueller’s. Grain that is now stored on the farm under seal will be transfered to these emergency storage places, thus giving the wheat raisers a place to store their coming crop. 60 years ago… County Commissioner Martin Ellingson has reported that the heavy rain in the Hills last week washed out twenty county bridges. Some, he stated, were just the approaches. All available county man power and machinery, he added, are at work in the Hills making temporary bridges in order to get the roads open. Ellingson, along with the other Commissioners, was making an inspection tour of these roads the first of the week. The Wall-Quinn ball team, under the management of Kenneth Renner, took their opening game out of the fire in the last of the ninth to win from Philip on the Wall diamond, Sunday, 5 to 4. BIRTH: Born to Mr. and Mrs. Merritt Patterson, a boy, May 26, at Rapid City. The Wall-Quinn ball team won their second game of the season in a ten inning contest at Interior, Sunday, 6 to 2. Coming toward Wall following the dance at Quinn, Neil Krampe with a car load of young folks swung too wide around the curve at the bottom of the hill east of town, lost control of this car which cut across the highway and rolled. Donald Krebs received a back injury and Norma Sorensen suffered cuts and bruises. The wrecked car, a 1951 Nash belonging to his parents Mr. and Mrs. Herb Krampe, was taken to the K & K Implement lot. According to Mrs. Charles Bruce, clerk of the Wasta Board of Education, the following nominating petitions of the school board have been filed: Earl Ferguson and Mrs. Helen Henderson, for three year terms; Clifford Sieh for a two year term; and George Gunn for a one year term left vacant when Warren Paulsen moved out of town. 50 years ago… Fifteen members of the Youth Confirmation Class became members of the Wall Methodist Church at the regular service. The names of the young folks are Barth Crouch, Doyle Estes, Douglas Flatt, Rosetta Graf, Wanita Hildebrandt, Kay Horton, Boyce and Ronda Kennedy, Norman Lynn Klingbile, Barry Meyers, Diane Paulsen, Gary Sebade, David Soma, Vicky Vickers and Cleo Williams. The weather station at Rapid City has announced that Rapid City has had a record amount of rainfall over a two week period with a rain guage total of over eight inches. It’s not official here at Wall, but reports from various sources show amounts ranging from six to nine inches. All of these rains have been of the soaking nature. Perhaps the heaviest rain of the series came Monday evening when nearly an inch fell in an hour and half period. This heavy shower flooded street corners and low places. The following students graduated from Wall High School on Tuesday evening: Barbara Eisenbraun, Donald Kjerstad, Joan Sieler, Harold Foell, Goldie Geigle, Jim Babcock, Sandra Sether, Allen Foster, David Fauske, Margy White, Bill Hamann, Donna Helms, Bob Johnson, Virginia Burmeister, Edmond Eisenbraun, Linda Sieh, Iola Eisenbraun, Irma Harnisch, George Krebs, Karl DeLand, Gary Huddleston, Dennis Walsh, Ray Ghering, Rita Pierce, Doug Estes, Laura Denke, Donald Mihills, Mary Jane Brennen, Jerald Eisenbraun, Donna Mason, Larry Eisenbraun, Norman Geigle, Danny Dartt, Merlin Crown, Marilyn Knapp, and Lyle Carmichael.

P. Baalfe officiating. A pretty, June wedding took place at St. John’s Church in New Underwood, Sunday afternoon, June 3, when Zetta Keffeler of Rapid City, became the bride of Joseph Bielmaier of Wall. 40 years ago… A three-car smash-up occurred at 2:30 p.m. Thursday at the intersection of Fourth Avenue and Glenn Street, not in Chicago, but in Wall. This is the corner of the old highway and the Badlands road. Quinn O’Connell driving north, stopped at the stop sign, and witnessed the two cars colliding and sliding in to his car. Quinn says his car suffered $125 damage for just observing traffic laws. Cathy Olic, driving eastward, collided with John Lynch’s car that was coming from the north. These cars were extensively damaged, but no personal injuries. Rain, rain and more rain made for three days of muddy Rodeoing at Wall this weekend for the Regional High School Rodeo. The bucking stock, furnished by John Holloway, were fresh from a winters rest and sent the High School lads into the mud generally well before the eight second whistle. A number of contestants were either stepped on or kicked. Wade Berry received the most serious injury. While he was steer wrestling, the steer cut back toppling him and his horse. The house started to get back on its feet, slipped and fell on Wade again. He suffered a broken arm up near the shoulder socket. He will be in traction for three weeks in Rapid City. Trudy Cox of New Underwood, was named Rodeo Queen. Coy Fisher of Kyle was named All Around Cowboy and Kim Risse of Bennett County won all Around Cowgirl. Wall High School easily won the most points in the Regional Rodeo. 30 years ago… Ross Renner and Mark Wernke, Wall, were on the Dean’s List for spring semester at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology as announced by Dr. Howard Peterson, dean of students. Although Maria “Pili” Eisenbraun of Creighton said that she’ll never get a grade for the test she took last fall, last week she received a letter assuring her a passing mark of sorts. Pili who grew up in Madrid, Spain, is now officially an American citizen. Pili, wife of David Eisenbraun and mother of four children, celebrated her ten year anniversary of living in America on May 30,. But even though she lived in America she was not a full-fledge citizen until last week. To apply for citizenship, a person like Pili must live in America at least five years. Elizabeth Sautter and Randall Hamburg were married May 20 at the Church of Saint Patrick in Wall. Parents of the couple are Mrs. Arleen Browen of Sioux Falls, Melvin Hamburg (deceased), and Mr. and Mrs. Thor Sautter of Wall. 20 years ago… Tyler Keyser, Wall, SD, son of Kirby Keyser, Wall, was among the graduates from the Mitchell Vocational Technical Institute for the 1991-92 school year. The ceremony was held on May 21, 1992 at the Mitchell Corn Palace. Tyler graduated from the Power Line Construction and Maintenance program.

Wall Volunteer Fire Department Fire Log: Saturday, May 30: at 4:10 p.m., the Wall Volunteer Fire Department responded to a fire near Exit 109 on Interstate 90. A 1970 Oldsmobile, driven by Francis Emery, Sioux Falls, had caught on fire and was burning. The cause of the fire was thought to be that of oil leaking on the manifold.

Discover What Brings Others Happiness
My personal belief is that true happiness is found in serving and giving to another human being. This quote from Og Mandino confirms my personal belief. (Please pay special attention to the third sentence.) "Realize that true happiness lies within you. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside. Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself." -Og Mandino I aspire to live my life in such a way that I am always aware of what brings other people happiness. For example, I know what makes my wife happy is to have me really take time to listen to her when she is trying to share her thoughts or opinions on a subject that is important to her. I know what makes my daughter happy is to just spend a little Dad and daughter time watching a movie or shooting hoops together. Now I may have other ideas of what I would like to do, but as much as possible I want to let my desire to bring happiness to my wife and daughter override my decision to do what I want to do. In essence, I make a decision to give of myself in order to bring happiness to them. Living this way obviously works at work just as well as at home when you take the time to discover what brings happiness to your employer or fellow employees. When we think in terms of the interests of others, and do what we can to meet those needs rather than only thinking of our own needs, it will ultimately result in a win-win for everyone concerned. Not to mention, this attitude can greatly impact productivity, morale and ultimately increase profitability in the workplace. My encouragement for you today: Discover what brings happiness to those you connect with daily; then be willing to give of yourself by reaching out, sharing, smiling, listening, encouraging-in whatever ways you can to meet someone else's need.
FINANCIAL FOCUS
AUTOMATIC INvESTING CAN PAY OFF FOR YOU Richard Wahlstrom www.edwardjones.com To achieve investment success, you don’t have to start out with a huge sum or “get lucky” by picking “hot” stocks. In fact, very few people actually travel those two routes. But in working toward your investment goals, you need to be persistent — and one of the best ways to demonstrate that persistence is to invest automatically. How do you become an “automatic” investor? You simply need to have your bank automatically move money each month from a checking or savings account into the investments of your choice. When you’re first starting out in the working world, you may not be able to afford much, but any amount — even if it’s just $50 or $100 a month — will be valuable. Then, as your career progresses and your income rises, you can gradually increase your monthly contributions. By becoming an automatic investor, you can gain some key benefits, including these: •Discipline — Many people think about investing but decide to wait until they have “a little extra cash.” Before they realize it, they’ve used the money for other purposes. When you invest automatically, you’re essentially taking a spending decision “out of your hands.” And as you see your accounts grow over time, your investment discipline will be self-reinforcing. •Long-term focus — There’s never any shortage of events — political crises, economic downturns, natural disasters — that cause investors to take a “timeout” from investing. Yet if you head to the investment sidelines, even for a short while, you might miss out on some good opportunities. By investing automatically each month, you’ll maintain a long-term focus. •Potential for reduced investment costs — If you invest the same amount of money each month into the same investments, you’ll automatically be a “smart shopper.” When prices drop, your monthly investment will buy more shares, and when prices rise, you’ll buy fewer shares — just as you’d probably buy less of anything when prices are high. Over time, this type of systematic investment typically results in lower costs per share. Furthermore, when you invest systematically, you’re less likely to constantly buy and sell investments in an effort to boost your returns. This type of frequent trading is often ineffective — and it can raise your overall investment costs with potential fees, commissions and taxes. (Keep in mind, though, that systematic investing does not guarantee a profit or protect against loss. Also, you’ll need the financial resources available to keep investing through up and down markets.) Clearly, automatic investing offers some major advantages to you as you seek to build wealth. Of course, if you’re contributing to a 401(k) or other employer-sponsored retirement plan, you’re already automatically investing because money is taken out of your paycheck at regular intervals to go toward the investments you’ve chosen in your plan. But by employing automatic investing techniques to other vehicles, such as an Individual Retirement Account (IRA), you can continue your progress toward your long-term goals, including retirement. So, do what it takes to become an automatic investor. It’s easy, it’s smart — and it can help you work toward the type of future you’ve envisioned.

FOCUS ON THE FAMILY
with Dr. James Dobson
Dr. Dobson Answers your Questions
QUESTION: I just lost my job, and without my income I can't see how my spouse and I are going to make ends meet. How am I going to break this terrible news? What will we do if I can't find another job? Can you help us weather this storm? ANSWER: It's important to begin by looking at the implications of your situation squarely in the face. Don't be blindsided or caught off-guard — understand that unemployment will impact your emotional and mental well-being in a very real way. It can also be a formidable challenge to the health of your marriage. If you realize this, you'll know where the stress is coming from, and you'll be less likely to take out your frustrations on your spouse or other members of the family. There are good reasons for the stress, of course. Job loss can be a serious blow to an individual's sense of identity. This is especially true for husbands, since many men define themselves in terms of their work. That's not to mention that, in some cases, their earnings are the family's primary source of income (even when this isn't true, a man still tends to perceive his own worth in terms of his ability to function as a breadwinner). Without that income, running out of money becomes a very real possibility, since many couples haven't saved enough to get them through a prolonged period of unemployment. All this weighs heavily on both partners, especially the one who feels most responsible to "bring home the bacon." So what should you do when unemployment hits your household and rattles your marriage? We have several suggestions. First, if you've been providing for your family but have lost your job, do everything you can to jump right back into the job market. Don't wait and don't delay. Try to find a position you can get enthused about, but if that's not available take anything that will provide your family with a living wage. You can work on longer-term career goals on the side. Second, though moving away from your support system may sound scary, don't rule out the possibility of relocating. Here again, the principle is to be humble, diligent and disciplined enough to take whatever you can get until something better presents itself. If you have to move, you can look at it as a fresh start and as an opportunity for the two of you to nurture your couple relationship away from the demands of family and friends. Third, be flexible about the "breadwinner" role. Sometimes a wife may have greater earning potential than her husband — this is just a fact of the world we live in. If she's taken a part-time job in order to care for her children, that arrangement may need to be reevaluated. At least for the time being, dad may need to be willing to play "Mr. Mom" while his wife takes on the task of supporting the family in a full-time position. Fourth, look for ways to cut expenses. Identify habits that can be changed and plans and activities that can be put on hold. Do without restaurant lunches. Avoid buying new clothes for six months. Turn down the heat and wear more sweaters. Shop at thrift stores or yard sales. In all of this, take pains to maintain your marriage and keep your relationship on a sound footing. Go out of your way to have fun and keep things light as much as possible - it's crucial to keep up your morale while waiting for circumstances to improve. If your spouse loses his or her job, avoid the temptation to ask a million questions or deliver a lecture about family responsibility. Support your mate in this crisis by helping with the job search and expressing your willingness to cut costs. A cheerful, positive attitude will go a long way in a situation like this. QUESTION: My husband lost his job three months ago and hasn't had much success finding a new one. He is bored and depressed, and I can tell that he's beginning to feel worthless. How can I support him through this difficult time? ANSWER: Your concern for your husband is commendable and understandable. Much of a man's selfesteem is derived from his ability to provide for his family. The longer he is unemployed, the weaker his sense of worth can become. Perhaps the most important thing you can do is to offer a listening ear. Let him know that he can lay aside the tough exterior of manhood and honestly share his feelings with you. Do your best to engage him in heartfelt conversation. If he openly shares his insecurities and frustrations with you, seize the opportunity to build him up. Affirm your husband and reassure him of your faith in him. You might say something like: "We've been through tough times before, and to-
gether we will get though this one, too. I believe in you, and I am praying for you." As he steps out into the world in an attempt to find a new position, he's going to need you to act as his cheerleader. Looking for a job is hard work; the very effort of contacting employers, filling out applications and submitting resumés should be celebrated. Encourage him with meaningful rewards such as a candlelight dinner, a funny card — something that says thank you for his diligence in seeking to provide for his family. Little gestures like this will make a bigger difference than you realize. In addition, you can gently remind your husband of the importance of staying productive. Idleness will only feed his depression. Encourage him to work on the honey-do list, volunteer at church or in the community — anything rather than sitting on the couch. You may also need to call in reinforcements, such as a friend who can take him to a ball game or provide some other temporary diversion. If either you or your husband feel the need of some encouraging words from an outside party, feel free to contact Focus on the Family's coun-
seling staff. They are trained Christian therapists who would be more than happy to discuss your concerns with you over the phone. They can also provide you with referrals to professional counselors practicing in your local area. You can reach one of them Monday through Friday between 6:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. Mountain time at 855-771HELP (4357). In closing, bear in mind that your man has no greater asset or resource than your unwavering faith in his worth, your words of affirmation and your practical support. When all else fails, your love will help keep his spirits up. And remember: this difficult season, like all seasons of life, will pass. QUESTION: My spouse has never learned how to save, give, tithe or plan a budget. As a result, we're deeply in debt and faced with selling our home in order to pay off our creditors. I've lost all respect for him, and I'm thinking seriously about divorce. Is there any way out of this mess? ANSWER: Your circumstances probably aren't going to change without some kind of direct intervention. Depending on your husband's past history of receptivity and cooperation, however, you may want to seek out the advice of a licensed Christian counselor before proceeding. Once you're ready to move forward, our recommendation is that you get someone to help you confront your husband about his irresponsible lifestyle — perhaps a friend or the pastor of your church. If he reacts negatively, pull together a group of his male friends whose relationship with your husband is such that they will be able to hold him accountable for his actions. This meeting should be conducted with a specific objective in mind. For example, as a first step the group might require that your spouse begin working on a detailed budget plan or making payments on his credit card debt. This technique is often used in dealing with addic-
tions and substance abuse, but it can work equally well in the case of a financial prodigal. A professional therapist could be consulted for assistance and expert advice. If the intervention is successful, your husband should be paired up with a mentor or enrolled in an accountability group that can help him follow through on his resolutions. He should also be encouraged to join you in seeking the help of a marriage counselor. If he is unwilling to cooperate, you should not hesitate to pursue counseling on your own. Meanwhile, do what you can to hold his feet to the fire. Your spouse's irresponsible actions have placed you in a tenuous position. To that extent it would be fair to characterize his behavior as dangerous and abusive. Our counselors often suggest that a husband or wife in a situation like yours needs to "precipitate a crisis." While we don't believe that divorce is the answer in this instance, we do feel strongly that a temporary separation might have the effect of forcing your husband to take a second look at his financial habits and attitudes. For more information on this "tough love" approach, we suggest you get a copy of Dr. Dobson's book Love Must Be Tough and study it carefully. You may also find Beth Moore's Praying God's Word to be a source comfort and encouragement during this difficult period in your life. Both books can be ordered via our Family Store. Send your questions to Dr. Dobson, c/o Focus on the Family, PO Box 444, Colorado Springs, CO 80903. This question and answer is excerpted from books authored by Dr. James Dobson and published by Tyndale House Publishers.

National Chocolate Ice Cream Day
Thursday, June 7th
National Chocolate Ice Cream Day is a great day to eat America's favorite flavor of ice cream. National Chocolate Ice Cream Day is a field day for ice cream makers. However, we probably don't need any additional incentive to eat Chocolate Ice Cream. And, with the arrival of warm, summer weather, cooling off with a little (or a lot) of chocolate ice cream is a natural. Celebrate National Chocolate Ice Cream Day by enjoying it a few times today. It's as simple as that. Just make sure to eat it quickly before it melts in the summer heat. The Origin of Chocolate Ice Cream Day: Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. Our money is on the ice cream makers as originators of this day.
