Eastern Pennington County Ambulance District accepts resignation, appoints Kjerstad to hold the position
The Eastern Pennington County Ambulance District met for the first time as a board on Wednesday, July 25 at 7:00 p.m. The ambulance service members were also in attendance. President Wally Hoffman asked for a motion to approve minutes from the Wednesday, July 11 meeting. A motion was made and approved. Hoffman read a letter from Pete Dunker, who declined the nomination to sit on the board for three years and to also be the treasurer. The board approved a motion to accept Dunker’s resignation. Hoffman asked the board to consider changing the position from a three year term to a one year term and to be appointed at the next annual meeting. Hoffman would also like to combine the treasurer position with the secretary position. The board approved to combine the positions. Jem Kjerstad was nominated and approved to take over Dunker’s position. Options for managing the district lead into a lengthy discussion. Dawn Hilgenkamp asked who is going to do the work that is involved in creating the corporation. She went on to say that not many from the ambulance service have that kind of time. Dick Johnson related they are short on local numbers to run the corporation. He suggested hiring a service director to run the whole show. Johnson went to say that Hill City and Keystone have the people to make an ambulance district work. John Kitterman agreed with Johnson, he added that he can’t keep up with everything and a director position is the key to a smooth operation. Hoffman asked what would the position cost. Johnson replied $3035,000 minimum. Vice-President of the board Norman Eisenbraun asked if having a director would make it tougher or easier getting EMTs. Johnson said, “as long as it is the right person, maybe then we can get locals to become EMTs. Board member Elden Helms wanted to know if we could get EMTs from WDT. Kitterman replied that’s where we get the EMTs from, but Wall is just a stepping stone for them since most are going on to become paramedics. Johnson noted that locals are the key to this operation. The ambulance service would like to see the board take over the ambulance service by January 1, 2013. Kitterman said we will continue to help with running the service. Hoffman’s main concern is coming up with the money to run the ambulance. He noted what the tax district will raise in taxes will replace what it going out of reserves but finances will be tight without taking into consideration other factors. Kjerstad wanted to know, “what are our other options, if it is to time concerning for anyone?” Hoffman replied, “In a few years down the road it would pay for itself if we get some local EMTs.” Board secretary and treasurer Anderson informed the board that they will receive tax revenue in 2013 instead of 2014 as long as the budget is submitted to the Pennington County Commissioners by September 1. Johnson then mentioned that we are kind of where we were at, before the district was formed. The service will still struggle to make it even with the tax levy, we need local EMTs to make the service survivable. He added if you hire a director they will have to be an EMT and cover a shift which would help. Hoffman related we will have to go with the maximum tax levy. He then asked if everyone was comfortable with the budget in which Hilgenkamp added we need to add the director’s pay. Kevin Wilson informed the board that there is a national problem with rural Emergency Medical Service and Dr. Long from Rapid City Regional Hospital will continue to oversee the Wall Ambulance Service. He also related that the board should buy their own liability insurance policy. Anderson will look into this matter. The board approved a motion to research hiring an ambulance director for the ambulance service. The ambulance district will sit down with the ambulance service to come up with a job description for the service director position on Wednesday, August 15. The board will take home the bylaws to study and will discuss those at their next meeting which will be set after the Wall City Council special meeting held on Thursday, July 26. The meeting was adjourned.
Wall City Council calls for special meeting
A special meeting was held by the Wall City Council on Thursday, July 26. Council members approved the agenda for the meeting. Council approved a one time deal to waive the use fees for Bountiful Baskets to use the Wall Community Center. The site fees for removal of the house on 104 Creighton Road was waived by the council. Mayor Dave Hahn reported to the council that the engineer has the specs for the new airport building ready to go to bids. He reminded the council that he has talked about this project for the past several years. It will cost the city only two percent which would be at a maximum of $4,000. The funds for the project have been in reserves. Council approved to open the bids for the project. Council approved to have Mayor Dave Hahn, Finance Officer Carolynn Anderson, Council members Bill Leonard, Pete Dunker and Preston Johnson present when bids are opened and to award the bid after the engineer has reviewed the bids. A motion was approved to have land appraised that will be purchased for the runway at the airport. Snow removal equipment for the airport was authorized to go to bids. Dunker asked Hahn if the city will be able to use the equipment. Hahn replied, only in extreme emergency conditions and after the airport has been cleared. Hahn also reminded the council members, FAA has to give their approval before the equipment can be opened up for bids. Eastern Pennington County Ambulance District President Wally Hoffman informed the council the district needs to know what the city proposes. What would the lease include and what kind of insurance the city has for the ambulance service. Hahn told Hoffman a letter from the city attorney with a run down list has been received and they would go over each item the attorney had provided. First items was date for completion of transfer. Hoffman said, “we would like it to be January 1, 2013. The council approved the transfer date. Council member Bill Leonard asked the ambulance board about getting a bill collector in place in which Hoffman replied they are looking into that. Leasing of property/equipment /other items was discussed. Hahn informed the board that the city would lease the two ambulances, equipment, and a portion of the ambulance building which houses the rigs, office and sleeping quarters. The other portion of the building belongs to the fire department. Hahn also said that the city will retain ownership of all the assets in cause the ambulance district was not successful. The council will have Anderson draw up a draft of a lease for all to review before asking the attorney to prepare an official lease. Hahn informed Hoffman the funding from the city will begin in 2013. Anderson asked the council to review the fundraiser at the city park. She informed the council that SanDee’s will set up two hours before home football games and close before the game begins and all proceeds will be given to the Wall Middle School basketball program. Council approve the fundraiser with the stipulation that all proceeds going to the basketball program. With no other business the meeting was adjourned.

Rush Funeral Home moving
by Del Bartels The Rush Funeral Home’s main chapel will be moving from 203 W. Pine Street to 165 East Highway 14, in Philip. The new building should be completed by this fall. “Gayle and I have lived in a funeral home, or next to one, most of our married life,” said Jack Rush. This move of the funeral home, and the conversion of the current site to a traditional home, will change that. “This was actually built as a funeral home, but has been added on to three times,” said Rush. Jack and Gayle met in 1967 and married in 1968, while Jack was completing his apprenticeship in Madison. He had graduated from the Wisconsin Institute of Mortuary Science in Milwaukee. Originally, Jack had become interested in the funeral profession after a neighbor boy was killed and Jack was one of the pallbearers. In that era, the work of the funeral director could include being the county coroner as well as running the ambulance. The hearse, actually a “combination unit,” converted into an ambulance when needed. That is only one way the funeral home business has changed over the years. It used to include digging the graves, making the surface vaults, performing the “full funeral service, then changing clothes and filling in the grave,” said Jack. Today, there are specific gravediggers and the vaults are brought in from suppliers. The Rushes moved to Chamberlain for a short time, where Jack’s duties still included ambulance work. In 1969, now in the big city of Sioux City, Iowa, he no longer had to do the ambulance part or the cemetery work. In 1977, they moved to Sioux Falls, where he worked as a funeral director until moving to Philip in December 1983. “I was 37, and my goal in life was to own my own funeral home. I thought, if I’m going to work that many hours, I might as well work for myself,” said Jack. He had previously held a high school summer job at the Wall Drug Store. So, when he heard from a supply salesman that the funeral home owned by W.E. “Woody” and Ruth Woodall was for sale, he investigated. In 1983, the Rushes moved to Philip to operate the funeral home, why you do it.” “The worst thing is personal scheduling. You can’t schedule anything, family vacations, etc., it doesn’t matter,” said D.J. Jack said, “One thing I didn’t want to do was be tied down like on the dairy farm I grew up on. We had to be there every morning and every evening. This is totally different; we being a family owned and operated business – we are 24/7. We’ve survived from 1967 to today, 45 years of the funeral business. It has been a great move coming to western South Dakota and we have no regrets.” The new location was once the Park-Inn Cafe and gas station, before it became a Kingdom Hall of the Jehovah Witnesses. “When it was a cafe, I used to go up there and have coffee every day,” said Jack. Today, the public opinion of the funeral home business is leaning away from being unapproached until needed. Now coming in can include coffee while people discuss pre-planning and other more modern aspects of funeral homes. School student visits now occur, with funeral directors teaching students the different aspects of death and dying. The Rush Funeral Home website, www.rushfuneralhome. com, addresses the cost of a funeral, which includes the six percent sales tax for materials and services. The site explains what funeral directors do, different aspects and options of funeral arrangements, and how the directors can help the family. The new building will eventually be 4,917 square feet, with a 36x36 garage. It will be Occupational Safety and Health Administration compliant; including the air exchange unit in the embalming room set to exchange the air 14 times per hour. The layout of the viewing room will be for easier visiting of the attendees. Actual funeral services will still be held in churches or other family chosen places. “We’re only assuming by more room, D.J. can do his mass communication, website, videos ... he can do more. That is where the funeral home business is changing. You have to be capable of supplying both the old and the new. We are here to do what a family wants and when they want it,” said Jack.

as well as the visitation chapels in Wall and in Kadoka. Robert “Bob” Coyle stayed on and became Jack’s right-hand man. “He was always there and willing to help, and Sharon, Bob’s wife, answered the phone,” said Jack. “After Bob died (July 4, 2000), Gayle came aboard and has worked faithfully ever since; a real asset to the funeral home. Someone has to be able to answer the phones 24/7, know what is going on and able to answer questions,” said Jack. Gayle graduated from Mount Marty College with a degree in social work. “I’ve never had a social work job in my life, but I use social work every day of my life,” said Gayle. Jack’s sister has also come on board this year to shoulder some of the office load. Jack joked, “Maybe this place will be a bed and breakfast; I’m going to sleep here and Gayle’s going to feed me?” The Rushes have raised three children, Lisa Moon, Creighton, Bridgett Stark, Breese, Ill., and Daniel John (D.J.), Philip. D.J. is now the second half of the ownership/management of Rush Funeral Home. “I grew up here, in this house, and around it (the business), so I knew it was definitely what I did not want to do!” said D.J. Only after three years in the Army, and then earning an economics degree from South Dakota State University, did he consider entering into the funeral home business. By January 2001, D.J. had completed his mortuary science degree at the University of Minnesota and his apprenticeship in Brookings. His mortuary graduating class started with around 30 students, with half not continuing. “The attrition rate isn’t very good,” said D.J. Now, he is part of the business. “You know just about everybody and it’s worked out well, most of the time. The work environment is okay. There are tough days in whatever you are doing.” “I think it is a good move; more space,” said D.J. “When I came here, I think he (Jack) had one desk. Now we have three computers and four printers. We just grew out of it.” D.J. believes the best thing about the funeral home business is the process. “You probably know the family. The next four to five days you are with them, you see the way they process grief. They are healing. You hope you’ve been a little part of that. Maybe that’s

S.D. Lottery announces 25-year retailers
tailers who sell Lottery tickets in their businesses. One-hundred-six of the more than 600 South Dakota retailers who currently offer the games have been Lottery partners for the entire 25 years of operation. Lottery Executive Director Norm Lingle says the agency’s success is due in large part to these front-line representatives. “We can come up with the best games in the world but if no one is willing to sell them, we have failed in our efforts to raise revenue for the State of South Dakota and its citizens. The Lottery has an exceptional core of retailers who stepped up to the challenge when the first ticket was sold in 1987 and who’ve continued to partner with us every year since. I’m glad we have this opportunity to thank them for their commitment,” Lingle said. Each of the “25-Year Retailers” will be presented with an anniversary clock commemorating their service. Retailer from the Wall area to be recognized is: •Wall: Common Cents Food Store #111 The retailer recognition is part of a months-long 25th anniversary celebration which also includes the launch of two anniversary scratch tickets this month, an anniversary-themed booth at the South Dakota State Fair in August, and a formal observance at a South Dakota Lottery Commission meeting to be held adjacent to the actual September 30 anniversary date. For more information on the South Dakota Lottery’s 25th Anniversary, visit the Lottery website at www.lottery.sd.gov or their Facebook page.
Social Security News
Your Questions, Social Security’s Answers Question: Can I receive Social Security benefits and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits at the same time? Answer: You may be able to receive SSI in addition to monthly Social Security benefits if your Social Security benefit is low enough for you to qualify for SSI. Whether you can get SSI depends on your income and resources (the things you own). If you have low income and few resources, you may be able to supplement your Social Security benefit with an SSI payment. You can find out more about SSI by going to www.socialsecurity.gov and selecting the “SSI” banner at the top of the page. Question: My doctor said he thinks I’m disabled. Who decides if I meet the requirements for Social Security disability benefits? Answer: We first will review your application to make sure you meet some basic requirements for Social Security disability benefits, such as whether you worked enough years to qualify. Then we will send your application to the disability determination services office in your state, often called the “DDS” or “state agency” to determine whether you meet the legal definition of disabled. Your state agency completes the disability decision for us. Doctors and disability specialists in the state agency ask your doctors for information about your condition. They consider all the facts in your case. They use the medical evidence from your doctors and hospitals, clinics, or institutions where you have been treated and all other information. The state agency staff may need more medical information before they can decide if you are disabled. If more information is not available from your current medical sources, the state agency may ask you to go for a special examination. The preference is to ask your own doctor, but sometimes the exam may have to be done by someone else. Social Security will pay for the exam and for some of the related travel costs. Learn more about disability benefits at www.socialsecurity.gov/disability. Question: I just got back from an overseas military deployment and I want to plan ahead for my retirement. How will my military retirement affect my Social Security benefits? Answer: Your military retirement won’t affect your Social Security benefits at all. You can get both. Generally, there is no offset of Social Security benefits because of your military retirement. You will get full Social Security benefits based on your earnings. However your Social Security benefit might be reduced if you also receive a government pension based on a job in which you did not pay Social Security taxes. You can find more information in the publication Military Service and Social Security at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/ 10017.html. Or call us at 1-800772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778).

National 8/11 Day serves to remind diggers to call 811 before they dig
The 11th day of the eighth month is a good time to remember the importance of calling 811 before beginning any digging project, suggests the South Dakota Public Utilities Commission and the South Dakota One Call Board. August 11, 8/11, is National 811 Day, a designation intended to help spread the message to call 811 before you dig. When planning outdoor projects, residents should always consider the possibility that underground utilities could be directly below them. When an excavator calls 811 before they begin their project, they significantly reduce the risk of serious injury to themself and those around them as well as disruption of utility service. Excavators that hit an underground utility can be held financially responsible for any damages caused. Projects as modest as planting a shrub or installing a mailbox all require calls to 811 at least 48 hours prior to digging. The possibility of striking a line still exists even when digging a short depth. South Dakota Public Utilities Commission Chairman Chris Nelson further stressed the safety aspect of the 811 program. “Calling 811 is critical to the protection of the complex network of underground utilities, but it is also vital to remember that lives can be saved when 811 is called before digging,” he said. “Every digging project—whether big or small—requires a call to 811.” “Call, wait and dig. It’s that simple,” said Kurt Pfeifle, South Dakota One Call Board chairman. An excavator makes the free call to 811, gives the One Call representative the location details of their project and waits for the utility operators to be notified to mark any underground utilities at a project site,” he said. “It’s fast, easy and can give people peace of mind when digging.” Even after utilities have been marked by utility operators, excavators are encouraged to always dig with care. Visit www.SDOneCall.com for more information about 811 and the call-before-you-dig process.
BHFCU kicks off 16th annual school supply drive

USDA authorizes emergency haying and grazing of CRP acres in S.D.
USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) State Executive Director Craig Schaunaman, announced that in response to drought conditions, FSA has authorized emergency haying and grazing use of Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) acres for all South Dakota counties. "South Dakota producers interested in emergency haying and grazing of CRP must contact their local FSA offices to obtain approval to hay or graze CRP," said Schaunaman. Any approved emergency haying and grazing of CRP cannot begin until August 2, 2012, which is after the end of the primary nesting and brood rearing season in South Dakota. "Producers will also need to obtain a modified conservation plan from the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) that includes haying and grazing requirements," he said. Under CRP emergency haying and grazing provisions, haying activity may not exceed August 31, 2012, and grazing activity may not exceed September 30, 2012. The acreage eligible for emergency haying and grazing is limited to those conservation practices eligible under the emergency release of CRP for haying and grazing purposes. Currently there are approximately 532,000 acres of CRP available for emergency haying and grazing in South Dakota. There are an additional 19,000 acres of Conservation Practice 25, Rare and Declining Habitat available for emergency grazing purposes only. Wetland and farmable wetland conservation practices are considered to be environmentally sensitive; therefore, are not eligible for emergency haying and grazing. On July 11, 2012, Secretary Vilsack announced that the 25 percent CRP payment reduction will be reduced to 10 percent for all 2012 emergency haying and grazing authorizations in order to provide greater flexibility to farmers and ranchers in response to the drought conditions. Under emergency haying and grazing provisions, producers are reminded that the same CRP acreage cannot be both hayed and/or grazed at the same time. For example, if 50 percent of a field or contiguous field is hayed, the remaining unhayed 50 percent cannot be grazed; it must remain unhayed and ungrazed for wildlife habitat purposes. In an effort to proactively serve South Dakota farmers and ranchers, the South Dakota Farm Service Agency and the South Dakota Department of Agriculture are encouraging producers to utilize the on-line hay finder services available via www.hayexchange.com and www.haybarn.com. For more information and to request approval for emergency haying and grazing of CRP acres contact your local FSA office.

S.D. USDA Rural Development and SDSU Extension announce selection of regions for training
Two regions comprised of counties within South Dakota have been selected to participate in a new “Stronger Economies Together (SET)” Program to received training and technical assistance for rural regional economic development. James River Valley Region comprised of Beadle, Hand, Jerauld, Kingsburg, Spink and Clark counties and Here We Grow! Partners For Living Region comprised of the counties of Haakon, Jackson, and Eastern Pennington were the regional teams that were awarded the opportunity for the training. Each regional team will develop a vision and goals, examine regional demographics, opportunities, assets and barriers, and create a regional economic development plan. Training and technical assistance will be delivered by a core team of Extension and RD staff as well as state-wide and area resource providers and experts USDA Rural Development (USDA RD) and South Dakota State University (SDSU) Extension are collaborating for this initiative. It is proposed to strengthen the capacity of rural communities and counties to work together in developing and implementing economic development blueprints that strategically build on the current and emerging economic strengths of the region. The SET Program is sponsored by USDA RD and the nation’s four Regional Rural Development Centers. The two regions were part of an application process in May of this year and were self-designated. The award process and scoring of the applications were facilitated by representatives from SDSU Extension, USDA RD, State of South Dakota Governor’s Office of Economic Development, Planning and Development District III, Rural Electric Economic Development, Inc., and Grow South Dakota. “As one of the only Midwestern states awarded this opportunity, South Dakota is at the forefront to increase regional economic competitiveness and collaboration of resources through the SET process,” said USDA RD State Director Elsie M. Meeks, “I look forward to the enhanced partnership between RD and SDSU”. For questions contact Christine Sorensen, USDA RD Coordinator at christine.sorensen@sd.usda.gov or 605-224-8870 Ext. 123.

Mountain pine beetle flight has begun
The annual flight of the mountain pine beetle has begun in the Black Hills, according to Ray Sowers, state forester for the South Dakota Department of Agriculture. “Once the beetles begin to fly, there is little to do regarding control,” Sowers said. “The time to spray trees has passed since sprays are only designed to protect trees from becoming attacked. Once a tree is attacked, it’s too late.” The state Department of Agriculture also suggests people not cut newly infested trees until after the flight is over, usually in midSeptember. “Once the beetles have decided to attack a tree, it is better just to leave it and have it soak up the beetles,” Sowers said. “If you remove the tree, the beetles will just attack another one nearby.” While landowners may make note of which trees are being attacked on their property, the work of marking and treatment will begin after the flight, not during the flight. Agriculture is South Dakota's No. 1 industry, generating nearly $21 billion in annual economic activity and employing more than 80,000 South Dakotans. The South Dakota Department of Agriculture's mission is to promote, protect, preserve and improve this industry for today and tomorrow.

Lottery warns of Mega Millions scam
The South Dakota Lottery is warning the public to be on guard against a scam in which individuals are being asked to pay money to collect a lotto prize. In recent days, the Lottery has been notified by several people who say they were contacted by an individual claiming to be with the Mega Millions lotto game. The caller allegedly told the person they had won a Mega Millions cash prize but could not claim their winnings without making a payment first. In one case, the individual contacted did pay the scammer then contacted the South Dakota Lottery to complain that they had not received their prize. Lottery Executive Director Norm Lingle says scam operations such as this are not uncommon; he cautions South Dakota players to be careful. “Some of these scammers even go so far as to use real game names and logos of legitimate lotteries to make their pitch sound more convincing. They also sometimes provide a contact name or phone number that when called back, will lead to an answering machine or be routed to a remote location,” Lingle said. “An easy rule of thumb is that if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” Lingle offers the public some tips on how to recognize and avoid a scam: •Never accept a collect phone call from someone claiming to be a lottery official. •Never cash or claim a lottery ticket for someone you don’t know. •Never give your credit card numbers, bank account numbers, or other personal information to anyone trying to sell you a lottery ticket, membership in a lottery pool, or promising a prize. •Beware of letters, email or phone calls offering you a guaranteed prize. The South Dakota Lottery does not guarantee you a prize, only a chance of winning one. •Beware of “urgent” solicitations that require a quick response. •Buy lottery tickets only from authorized South Dakota Lottery retailers. The public is also reminded that the South Dakota Lottery does not: •Require a winner to pay money upfront to claim a prize. •Require personal information such as social security numbers or bank account numbers from winners over the phone. Prizes of $101 or more must be claimed at a South Dakota Lottery office using an official claim form. •Require a short response time to cash or claim a winning ticket. Winners have 180 days to claim their prize, regardless of the game. •Enter someone into a drawing, promotion for an added bonus or prize, or for any other reason without their knowledge. If you have been contacted as part of the current Mega Millions or any scam, you are advised to report the scam to the S.D. Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Unit at 1-800-300-1986 or consumerhelp@state.sd.us.
The Drought Task Force
A column by Gov. Dennis Daugaard Just a year ago, South Dakotans were responding to record flooding, and many people wondered when the water would go down. How quickly things change. I recently attended the first meeting of the South Dakota Drought Task Force, a group I convened in response to an unprecedented string of hot, dry days and nights. A smaller group of representatives of state agencies has been meeting regularly for several weeks, monitoring the weather, following fire reports, and tracking forage and crop conditions. With drought conditions spreading across much of the state, we needed to formalize those meetings and add more players to the conversation. Thirty-five South Dakota counties are listed as "severe" on the U.S. Drought Monitor. We've already had more than 300 wildfires this year. Most of the state has seen above-average temperatures for several weeks, and many areas have been without any significant precipitation for some time. Last month was the driest June in history for Vermillion, Yankton, and Sioux Falls. Activating the Drought Task Force allows us to bring together all levels of government and all sources of information for direct communication. Our goal is to gather the best, most current data available and make sure South Dakotans have access to that information as quickly as possible. Many of our citizens are under great stress from the drought, and many have questions. The Drought Task Force is the forum where citizens can ask those questions and get the best possible answers. Each of us needs to do what we can to help our fellow South Dakotans. That’s how we made it through last year’s flooding, and that's how we'll get through this new test, together.

Dorothy is a very talented artist, stop by and enjoy her artwork. An impromptu birthday party was held for Merlin Doyle last Wednesday morning, the 25th. The morning coffee group were guests. Understand he has reached an age of double digits but don’t think it was 55. Happy birthday, Merlin and thanks for sharing your delicious cake! Meta (Poste) Dabney, 94, passed away on June 24th. Before going to the hospital, she had lived at the “Regency Palms” assisted living in Las Vegas. She was buried in the Veteran’s Memorial Cemetery at Boulder City, Nev., on August 1st. Meta worked hard when she was young, but had a long life. Her only living sibling is Leila Joyce of Custer. We offer our condolences ot the family. Services for Dennis O’Dea were held on Friday, July 27, at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Philip. We offer sympathy to his family. Mark and Darlene Poste were out to the place on Sunday to take the camper back to Rapid City. They visited Frances en route home. The “Theme” meal was held at Prairie Village on Monday, the 30th. We set tables for three dozen people. The Methodist Church welcomed five new members during worship service on Sunday — Peter Dunker, Marilyn Ivers, Kalie Kjerstad, Rachel Kjerstad and Cheryl Walker. Congratulations to each of them. The XXX Summer Olympics are interesting to watch. Think we have a better seat than those attending with the London weather. Maylin Brucklacher, daughter of Matthew Brucklacher, competed in the Colorado State Swim meet for kids. She swam in two relays with her team from the Greeley Country Club. She swam the butterfly stroke in the medley relay and they took first in their heat. She also swam in the freestyle relay and the placed second in their heat.

They were all celebrating their 50th anniversaries, having been married in 1962. All had ties with the Philip area — Leroy and Twila Dean, Leo and Judy Gittings, Ed and Bonnie Morgan, Jim and Vonnie O’Dea, Bill and Karyl Sandal and Terry and Barbara Wentz. Our weather continues to be hot but we did receive some most welcome rain last Friday evening. The drought is taking over a bigger area. News is almost as scarce as rain this week. Hope it is better next week. Dieters — People who are thick and tired of it.” Source Unknown (taken from Family Almanac)

Wasta Wanderings
Submitted by Lloyd & Margee Willey Dick and Gaye Hadlock had company from Cal-Nev-Ara from July 19th to the 25th. The visitors were Teresa Hadlock and her uncle, Les Iwer. Teresa has been a frequent visitor to Wasta as a friend and former daughter-in-law. Her uncle Les enjoys the trip and the visit as well. the name of the town is truly as written. It took me several tries to get it right, even though Gaye patiently repeated the spelling! Cal-Nev-Ara, Arizona! Next week, Dick and Gaye will have grandson Joshua, his wife Natalie and their three little ones, Karalynn (seven months), Peter (two years) and Nadia (four years). They are Melanie’s and Pat’s son, daughter-in-law and family. The park has nicely trimmed trees now. We didn’t know those old trees could look so good! The fellow who did the trimming will be back in a couple months if anyone else needs his service. Terry Schell volunteered to haul the big pieces away, Lloyd loaded some small branches in his pick-up and a lot of raking was done by the “Good Somebody” Billie Hulm usually fits that description. How about those Wall High School Grads and high school girls and their great trip abroad? What a great opportunity! Lloyd and I have been enjoying little “run-away-for-the-day” trips to the Black Hills to picnic by lakes we enjoy. Though the temperatures was some what cooler than home, it was warm. But beautiful! An afternoon visit with Jean Linn; Kellie Linn, Dorothy Anderson and I got together for a silly and multi-ruled game of dominoes Thursday (26th). Someone said laughter is the best medicine and it would follow that we all came away from Jean’s home totally healed of whatever we might have! The game was such fun it would be a shame to spoil it by learning the correct rules! It was good therapy for Jean’s hand as well! She is working hard to recover from the effects of the stroke she had last spring. Lloyd had an emergency visit to the VA hospital on Saturday morning. His problem was diagnosed as an infection of the inner ear. He was terribly nauseated, could hardly stand or walk. Medication to treat the symptoms has helped. Another visit to Ft. Meade tomorrow will perhaps give us further information. Call with your news! Happy Trails!

At the Core there is a Seed
There is much potential in a seed. Take for instance the lowly seed within the acorn that grows into a mighty oak tree. It is my belief that one should never underestimate the power of a seed, whether planted in the ground or into a life. Let's take a moment to consider the types of seeds that have been planted into your life. Someone, somewhere, somehow has instilled (or planted) in each of us certain seeds of beliefs and values, information and knowledge, skills and attitudes, which have born the fruit that makes us who we are today. I am sure that there were parents, relatives, teachers, and other role models, that have guided and helped you make right choices and decisions along your path, right? I know for a fact that I have had these key people in my life planting seeds in me. How fortunate we are! During these difficult and challenging times it is vital that we tap into our own personal core strengths, values, traditions, attitudes, principles, and beliefs that when combined will not only sustain us but strengthen us further in the weeks, months and years ahead. Dig deep, search yourself, truly be honest and identify what it is that makes you, you. This is referred to as tapping into your personal potential, and is very similar in process to taking off the shell of the acorn nut to release the seed. For over two decades now I have been writing a series of articles I call Seeds of Success. It has been a journey of exposing my heart, my head, my failures, my successes and sharing them with whomever may read and heed. I must say this has not been an easy process. Actually, sometimes it has been quite brutal. Exposing intimate parts of my life to others technically has both its positive and negative consequences and I have discovered them each. Originally, I thought this would help me process information for my motivational talks and presentations that I give around the United States. Ultimately, it has enriched me in multiple ways that I would have never dreamed possible. With the release of my first book, Home Grown Seeds of Success, and then having a few newspapers around the region picking up my articles to publish them for their readers, has been very humbling and yet has challenged me, to press on in my writing skills and speaking craft. Let it be noted, I attribute much of my success to my parents: my dad who taught me the discipline of hard work, and my mom who always encouraged me to utilize the creativity within me to solve life's challenges. As I live out my passions, focus on my priorities, and work on my goals I find that I am naturally tapping into my inner core of all that has been planted in me throughout my entire
FINANCIAL FOCUS
FiNANCiAL TiPS FOR NEWLY SiNGLE WOMEN Richard Wahlstrom www.edwardjones.com Within a marriage, a man and a woman’s financial circumstances are generally pretty much equal. But if a divorce occurs, the woman’s situation tends to be somewhat more challenging than that of her ex-spouse. And that’s why, during this major life transition, you may want to meet with a professional financial advisor to go over your spending needs and your cash flow, so that you know what you absolutely need today — and how you can plan for tomorrow. Before we get into some possible steps you can take, let’s look at some of the reasons that women may fare worse than men, financially speaking, following a divorce: •Lower income — The average woman’s family income drops by 37% after divorce, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. In many cases, divorce exacerbates a situation in which women were already trailing men in earnings. In fact, women still only earn 77 cents for each dollar earned by men, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. •Smaller retirement accounts — The average balance on women’s defined contribution plans (such as 401(k) plans) is only 60% of men’s average balances, according to LIMRA, a financial services research organization. Of course, “averages” are just that — averages. But whether you recognize yourself in the above numbers or not, consider these suggestions: •Create an emergency fund. Try to put six months’ to a year’s worth of living expenses in a liquid account. Once you’ve established this emergency fund, you won’t have to dip into long-term investments to pay for unexpected costs, such as an expensive car repair, a new furnace or a large medical bill. •Contribute as much as you can afford to your retirement accounts. Even if you will eventually receive some of your ex-spouse’s retirement funds, you need to take full advantage of your own savings opportunities — because it’s pretty hard to save “too much” for retirement. If money is tight, it won’t always be easy, but contribute as much as you can to your 401(k) or similar employer-sponsored retirement plan. At a minimum, put in enough to earn the employer’s match, if one is offered. •Rebalance your investment portfolio. If you are now investing for yourself, you’ll want to take a close look at your asset mix to make sure it is appropriate for your situation. For example, your risk tolerance may be quite different than that of your ex-spouse’s. So if you now have total control over an investment portfolio, you need to make sure it reflects your needs and preferences. Consequently, you may need to “rebalance” your holdings. •Above all, get some help. As mentioned above, now is a good time to meet with a financial advisor. And if you don’t have much experience in managing your finances, you may even find it helpful to work with a trust company, which can collaborate with your financial provider to manage your assets and also provide a variety of other functions, including bill payment and record keeping. A trust company’s services can prove especially valuable to you and your family should you ever become incapacitated. Unfortunately, a divorce may leave you feeling “at sea” in many areas of your life. But by following the above suggestions, you can at least help keep your financial ship in calmer waters.
life, which has brought greater joy and happiness into my life as I keep digging and digging. Not only that, but this process helps me to plant positive seeds in others-our children, our grandchildren, and the thousands of people I am fortunate to speak to each year. The best part and the good news is that if this incredible life management system will work for me it will work for anybody who applies it. The tough part is actually doing it. Rigorous disciplines and accountabilities are required for continued success in the application of what we have learned. The big question is what kinds of seeds are you planting in the lives of others? I surely expect that they are seeds of joy, peace, success, humility, creativity, and so on-what I refer to as the good seeds. Deliberate implementation of the above attitudes will cause you to dig deep into your inner core where you will find the seed of new birth planted, which can ultimately release your God given potential and help to truly live the incredible life of which you have always dreamed.

A COMPELLING REASON
by Pastor Ricky Kurth “I am become a fool in glorying; ye have compelled me: for I ought to have been commended of you: for in nothing am I behind the very chiefest apostles, though I be nothing” (II Cor. 12:11). The Apostle Paul did not like to “glory” or boast about his apostleship. He would much rather spend his time teaching the great truths of the Mystery, and the Word of God, rightly divided. However, the immaturity of the Corinthians “compelled” him to such boasting. They were so impressed with the boasting of the “false apostles” (11:13) that Paul was forced to speak to them in the only language they seemed to understand—that of boasting. Grace believers are often accused of boasting too much about the apostleship of Paul, and to this we plead guilty. We too would much rather spend our time teaching the great truths of the Word of God, rightly divided. However, the sorry state of modern Christianity is such that we too are “compelled” to boast about Paul’s apostleship. The immaturity of contemporary Christianity has caused them to overlook Paul as “the apostle of the Gentiles” (Rom. 11:13), and presents us with a compelling reason to emphasize his apostleship. Paul found the Corinthian situation especially disappointing, since as he told them, “I ought to have been commended of you.” As the one who had begotten them in the gospel (I Cor. 4:15), they should have been singing the praises of his apostleship, instead of forcing him to defend it. And so it is today. All who are saved in the dispensation of Grace are saved by grace through faith apart from works (Eph. 2:8,9), a gospel that is exclusive to the Apostle Paul. And so in a very real sense, all who are saved today are begotten of the Apostle Paul, and should be singing the praises of his apostleship, instead of forcing us to defend it. The false apostles in Corinth were probably protesting, “Why, Paul isn’t even one of the twelve apostles! We have as much authority as he has!” This forced Paul to declare that he was “not a whit behind” the very chiefest apostles, i.e., James, Peter and John. But if Paul only claimed he wasn’t “behind” the twelve apostles, why do we insist on emphasizing his epistles ahead of the epistles of James, Peter and John? Ah, Paul’s apostleship was equal to theirs, but he was the apostle of a different group of people. As he told the Galatians, “He that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles” (2:8). All state governors are equal in authority; no governor is a whit behind any other. However, if I am wise, I must recognize the authority of the governor of my state. And if we are wise as Christians, we must likewise recognize the authority of “the apostle of the Gentiles.”

Archery hunters can apply for limited access permits In Sioux Falls, Blood Run and Adams Homestead
South Dakota archery hunters are eligible to apply for free, limited-access permits in three areas in the southeastern portion of the state. Access permits for the city of Sioux Falls will be for antlerless deer only. The Blood Run Nature Area and the Adams Homestead and Nature Preserve will each have any-deer and antlerless-deer access permits. Archery hunters need to purchase an applicable statewide archery deer tag prior to applying for access permits. The signup period for the three areas will be from July 23 – August 17. Hunters can sign up at http://gfp.sd.gov/hunting/biggame/deer/archery.aspx When signing up, archery hunters must provide email addresses because email is the only way they will be notified about successfully obtaining access permits. The Blood Run Nature Area and Adams Homestead and Nature Preserve Archery Access Permits will be valid from October 1 – December 31. Each access permit will allow the taking of one deer, with the type of deer license specified on the permit. The number of access permits to be issued for the areas are as follows: •Blood Run – Five any-deer and five antlerless-deer •Adams Nature Preserve – Five any-deer and 45 antlerless-deer. Applications for Blood Run and Adams Nature Preserve are combined; a person can make only one access permit application for the two areas. An access permit will only be valid on Blood Run or Adams, not both. A hunter will not be eligible for multiple access permits in the first draw for Blood Run and Adams. However, if there are leftover access permits after the first draw, hunters may pick up additional access permits. Archery hunters may apply for a first and second choice. “These permits will provide a unique opportunity to provide hunting access on very controlled areas of public land. A limited number of hunters will be permitted to hunt on those sites in order to control deer numbers and minimize damage to neighboring properties,” said Arden Petersen, regional supervisor with the Department of Game, Fish and Parks. “To ensure safety and minimize the impact on other park users and adjacent homeowners, a limited number of access permits are being issued to archery hunters only.” The Sioux Falls Archery Antlerless Deer Permit will also will be valid from October 1 – December 31, and will once again allow hunting on 11 designated zones in the northeastern part of the city. "This is the third year of the Sioux Falls hunt, which was created through a cooperative agreement with Game, Fish and Parks, the City of Sioux Falls and landowners as a means of reducing the population of deer in the city", Petersen said. Each zone will have seven sets of two-week archery hunting intervals, for a total of 77 permits. One change from last year is that when applying for access permits, hunters will now be able to choose which interval period they wish to hunt. The hunter will be assigned a zone, if successful in the draw. People will be able to choose a first and second choice of interval periods. However, people applying for the Disabled Unit will be assigned their session in the draw. The season interval periods for the Sioux Falls Access Permits are as follows: •September 26 – October 9 •October 10 – 23 •October 24 – November 6 •November 7 – 20 •November 21 – December 4 •December 5 – 18 •December 19 – January 1 Disabled Unit – Hunt dates will be assigned by draw. If drawn for any of the Sioux Falls access permits, hunters must attend a mandatory meeting prior to hunting. Successful Access Permit Holders will be notified by GFP about the dates and places for those meetings. For more information on those seasons, visit: http://gfp.sd.gov/hunting/biggame/deer/archery.aspx

Hidden Sweets An unknown author once said “Stressed spelled backwards is desserts. Coincidence? I think not!” and another unidentified author said, “A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand”, wouldn’t it be great if that was true? Most individuals are attracted to sweets. They enjoy the sweet taste of food. The average American consumes about 22 teaspoons of added sugar a day which equals 335 calories or about 90 grams. For many people, added sugars are a hidden source of extra calories that can make it hard to stay at a healthy body weight. Common sources of sugar are sweetened beverages such as sodas, fruit juices, energy drinks, sports drinks, fancy coffee beverages, desserts, candy and breakfast cereals. Sugars improve the flavor of foods. In addition to improving the texture and color of baked goods, they also help to thicken, firm, or preserve jams and jellies. Simple sugars and complex carbohydrates or starches occur naturally in many foods that also supply other nutrients, including milk, fruits, vegetables, grains and cereals. Our bodies cannot tell the difference between naturally occurring and added sugars in foods because they are chemically the same. The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans and USDA My Plate recommend that people choose and prepare foods and beverages with little added sugars or caloric sweeteners. The American Heart Association suggests that added sugar should be limited to no more than six - seven percent of your total calories. This does not include naturally occurring sugars found in fruits (fructose) and dairy products (lactose). The best way to know which foods and beverages are high in added sugars is to read the Nutrition Facts Label and check the ingredient list on the package. A product is high in added sugar if one of the first two or three ingredients listed have white sugar, brown sugar, or any other sugarbased sweetener, such as honey,

dextrose, high-fructose, syrups, concentrated fruit juices or other sweeteners. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could justify our sweets by calling them vegetables, as quoted by Jim Davis, “Vegetables are a must on a diet. I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread and pumpkin pie.” Unfortunately that’s not the case. Try the following tips to begin limiting added sugar in your diet: 1) Add fresh fruit or raisins to plain ready-to-eat breakfast cereals instead of sugar. 2) Gradually decrease sugar in recipes by one-fourth the amount called for in baked items. 3) Use fresh fruit toppings for pancakes, French toast and waffles instead of syrup or honey. 4) Choose yogurts with noncaloric sweeteners.

Naural resources drought assistance for farmers/ranchers
Jeffrey Zimprich, State Conservationist, of USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service, Huron, says field offices around the state are ready to provide information and assistance to farmers hit hard by the drought. NRCS administers a number of Farm Bill programs that provide technical and financial assistance to farmers and ranchers to install conservation practices. Zimprich said, “The prolonged and extreme heat temperatures coupled with lack of rain is creating situations in some areas of South Dakota where some producers may be forced to make critical changes to their operation.” The South Dakota Governor’s Drought Task Force web site is an excellent resource: http://drought .sd.gov/. NRCS is also encouraging producers seeking advice to contact their district conservationist at the local field office. The NRCS, along with many agencies, are working to help producers with their present droughtrelated crop and livestock production needs, the agencies strength is in working with the producers to cooperatively identify the conservation practices and management that will minimize the effects of future droughts. “NRCS has a lot we can offer producers technically, but at this time of the year, there is not a lot of financial assistance,” says Zimprich. “The financial assistance funds have been obligated for this fiscal year 2012. National funding at the present time is being targeted toward the hardest hit drought areas across the Nation. He explains, Financial funding may become available after October 1, 2012 depending on the passage on a new Farm Bill.” “While the weather situation and soil conditions are similar to the 1930s,” says Zimprich, “farmers and ranchers may be, in general, better coping with the drought because of the lessons we learned from the Dust Bowl. Now, producers using conservation practices have their natural resources in a better condition than 75 years ago.” Crop residue management helps prevent precipitation loss by reducing runoff and soil temperatures and evaporation. Ponds, pipelines and tanks can help distribute water to where forage is located. Grazing plans and fencing can manage livestock grazing to keep forage plants healthy and deep rooted to maximize plant survival and productivity. Cover crops can improve soil health to improve water storage in the soil profile as well as provide additional grazing. Livestock producers have been especially hard hit and NRCS has grazing specialists that provide suggestions about range and pasture management and options and consideration for forage and water management. Zimprich says, “It’s important for producers to have a backup plan such as deferred or rotational grazing, alternative water sources, combining herds, reducing livestock numbers, etc.” “Producers with conservation contracts with the agency who cannot meet established practice installation deadlines will have some flexibility in meeting their obligations,” said Zimprich. Zimprich suggests that producers go over their contracts with their district conservationist to determine if practice implantation schedules need to be modified. Some programs allow for practice substitution or rescheduling of installation dates.” He adds, “Assistance is also available for those farmers that have established practices which have failed because of drought.” NRCS encourages farmers that are considering installing any engineered practices (such as dams, grassed waterways, water and sediment control basins) to also consider resource conditions before construction. “These practices cost a lot of money and we don’t want to see them fail. One of the biggest concerns is a lack of soil moisture that would prohibit proper compaction.” NRCS can advise landowners and contractors on optimum moisture levels to achieve the best outcome. Farmers and ranchers with water, land or crop management concerns can get help from NRCS through the development of a conservation plan. The Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) has continuous signup. Zimprich encourages farmers and ranchers to come in to their local office for ideas and future options for recovering from the drought. “It also helps us,” he says, “to get an idea of the needs out on the South Dakota landscape so we can be ready if and when conservation program funding becomes available.” Conservation plans can include drought planning and are free. Being prepared helps producers to continue operations even in the most severe conditions. Contact the NRCS staff in your local USDA Service Center for information about mitigating drought damage and specific Farm Bill programs.

RESOLUTION County regulation of fireworks in South Dakota WHEREAS, SDCL Chapter 34-37 provides the authority for counties to regulate or prohibit the use of fireworks under certain climatic conditions; and WHEREAS, confusion exists as to the interpretation of § 34-37-13 (Public display of fireworks) and § 34-37-19 (County regulation of fireworks – Use of South Dakota grassland fire danger index); and WHEREAS, the Board of Commissioners of Pennington County find that it would be in the best interest of the public that the above-referenced statutes be revised to provide clear and concise direction to county government in determining when and to what extent the use and sale of fireworks may be regulated. NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Pennington County Board of Commissioners are requesting that SDCL § 34-37-13 be revised as follows: 34-37-13. Public display of fireworks Public display of fireworks may be authorized for any day of the year. However, any person, association, organization, municipality, county, firm, partnership, or corporation, before making such public display of fireworks shall secure a written permit from the governing board of the municipality, township, or county where the public display is to be fired, and shall have purchased fireworks for the display from a licensed wholesaler under this chapter. Any public display shall comply with the National Fire Protection Association Standard 1123, 1995 edition. The governing entity issuing the permit may establish an application process and place any condition(s) on the permit as it deems necessary, including suspension or revocation of the permit, in the interest of public health and safety.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that SDCL § 34-3719 be revised consistent with one of the following three options: Option # 1: If counties desire the same level of authority as municipalities, then SDCL 34-37-19 should be amended to read as follows: 34-37-19. County regulation of fireworks Every county shall have the power to regulate or prohibit the use or sale of fireworks outside the boundaries of any municipality. Source: SL 1989, ch 302; SL 2002, ch 252 (Ex. Ord. 02-1), § 17; SL 2003, ch 187, § 1; SL 2004, ch 239, § 1; SL 2011, ch 162, § 4. Option # 2: If the desire is to keep the fire danger index criteria in statute but authorize counties to regulate or prohibit the use or sale of fireworks through July 5th, then SDCL 34-37-19 would need to be amended to read as follows: 34-37-19. County regulation of fireworks--Use of South Dakota grassland fire danger index Any county may, by resolution passed at any time, regulate or prohibit the use or sale of fireworks outside the boundaries of any municipality during the period from June twentyseventh through July fifth and December twenty-eighth through January first when the fire danger, as determined by use of the South Dakota grassland fire danger index published by the National Weather Service, has reached, the very high or extreme category in that county during the period from June twentieth to July fifth inclusive, and during the period from December twenty-eighth to January first, inclusive. During any such period, the county's action is suspended if the grassland fire danger index falls below the very high category and again becomes effective if the grassland fire danger index reaches the very high or extreme category. A violation of this section is a Class 2 misdemeanor. Source: SL 1989, ch 302; SL 2002, ch 252 (Ex. Ord. 02-1), § 17; SL 2003, ch 187, § 1; SL 2004, ch 239, § 1; SL 2011, ch 162, § 4. Option # 3: The third option would be to keep July 3-5 free of any regulation by counties but clean up the statute so it is more easily understood as follows: 34-37-19. County regulation of fireworks--Use of South Dakota grassland fire danger index Any county may, by resolution passed at any time, regulate or prohibit the use or sale of fireworks outside the boundaries of any municipality during the period from June twentyseventh through July second and December twenty-eighth through January first, when the fire danger, as determined by use of the South Dakota grassland fire danger index published by the National Weather Service, has reached the very high or extreme category in that county during the period from June twentieth to July second, inclusive, and during the period from December twenty-eighth to January first, inclusive. During any such period, the county's action is suspended if the grassland fire danger index falls below the very high category and again becomes effective if the grassland fire danger index reaches the very high or extreme category.

The Looking Glass of Time
80 years ago… Upwards to a million bushels of wheat is estimated as the amount being harvested in this vicinity which will later be marketed through the elevators of Quinn and Wall. Old timers in the wheat section say that the grain is well filled, seeds grouped in threes and all well formed, which means yields from 20 to 40 bushels per acre. Combines started as early as last week but many had to be stopped because of excessive moisture content. Some have estimated their oats to yield as high as 60 bushels to the acre. A few stalks of corn are on display at the bank which are eight feet tall with ears setting on. Work on the road east from the Pinnacles south of Wall is continuing but under extreme difficulty. At the place where they are working, about a quarter of a mile east of the end of the old road, the dirt is truly as “hard as rock”. Dynamite, picks, and heavy iron teeth pulled by caterpillars loosen the Badland soil which is then moved by self-loading and dumping fresnos. Quinn News: Last Thursday, the morning passenger train did not reach Quinn until 4:35 in the afternoon. Two loaded cars on the night freight train had jumped the track and blocked traffic. It was necessary to call the wrecker before the track could be cleared. Scenic, then Wasta, and now the Pennington County Banks have closed but still the Farmers State Bank of Wall continues to hold its own. 70 years ago… A new allotment totalling $22,800 has been approved for the West River Electric Association, Inc., Wall, according to word received here this week from Harry Slattery, Rural Electrification Administrator at St. Louis, Mo. Announcement of the new loan was made by Marvin Kessler, Manager of the West River Association. The allotment will make possible further expansion of the West River system to serve 138 new members over 12 miles of newly constructed or acquired lines. Of the total amount alloted, $12,800 has been earmarked for the purchase and rehabilitation of the New Underwood line by the association. Ten miles of new line will also be constructed to serve other new members in Pennington County. The new hospital at Wall received its christening late Monday with the arrival of little Miss Pierce, the first baby to be born there. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ira Pierce. Previous to this, however, Dr. Mills has been using the office part of the hospital for examination of patients and Thursday of last week, the surgery room was used when tonsils were removed from Mary Hustead. A regular meeting of the Board of Education of Wall, Independent School District No. 58, Wall, was held at School House on the 3rd day of June, 1942, with the following members present: Wm. Clark, H.

Another bomb was reported to have dropped near the A. M. Smith house the same night. The explosions occurred in the air but quite close to the ground. Smoke could be seen drifting in the air after the explosions, according to the Renners. The Rapid City Journal said Wednesday the air base had reported nothing of that nature. Mayor Howard Connolly will carry a pail of dirt from Wall and another from the Badlands to the Ft. Randall Dam which he will pour in to help fill the remaining gap and start to fill the reservoir. Mayors of all of the towns in the state had been invited by Gov. Sigurd Anderson to attend this ceremony Saturday morning. Two seismograph companies are at work in this area making complete maps of their findings. They are shooting holes from one to four in each mile.

Jerry Lawson, a Minuteman missile steelworker employed by the American Bridge Co., is hospitalized with a shoulder wound. He is in the security ward of the Bennett Memorial Hospital in Rapid City. Additional charges are pending. Sabo suffered back injuries, bruises and minor cuts. He was hospitalized two days at Quinn before returning to work. The incident occurred about 11:30 p.m. Thursday in front of the William Walsh residence. Sabo stopped Lawson and returned to his car to write out a ticket. Lawson opened the car door, jumped in and started beating Sabo. He took Sabo’s blackjack and started beating him with it. Sabo said he pulled his gun and warned the man twice. Lawson tried to seize the gun and Sabo shot him. The man didn’t appear to have been drinking. When asked why he did it, he replied: “I’m tired of having police officers writing me tickets. Promising results on plans for Wall’s swimming pool were achieved this past week by the Swimming Pool Committee. At the first meeting held Thursday evening, Leonel Jensen chairman of the site committee, reported that Emil Muller would have land available for the pool. The committee voted to locate the swimming pool on the Emil Muller land. Mr. Muller donated 300 ft. square piece of land east of Wall near the edge of the Badlands for the use of a swimming pool and for a park. At a special meeting Tuesday evening, the committee talked with some of the Minute Man Contractors in this area to see if they could furnish any help in building the swimming pool. Bob Patch, representing Kiewit, said they would furnish concrete at $16 yard. But he added, this must be done before winter, because they’ll be done here in Wall and moving out. Capt. Vogt of the Air Force, said that the only crew they had was a surveying crew, but he was sure they could help with surveying the land and the pool itself. Leonard Marcellus, representing
Page River Curran, said they would furnish equipment and dig the water and sewer line. Frank Kleinschmit has already said he would donate labor and equipment for the excavation of the pool. 40 years ago… A minor flood caused some damage on Main Street, Thursday evening and gave the tourist a little excitement. A front wheel of a water tank trailer dropped off near the Legion Hall with the tank load of water rolling off and damaging a parked tourist car in the center lane. Don Kelly was the owner and the driver of the water truck. After the water was drained from the tank, Bob Knutson, using the town’s hoist cleared the street of obstructions.

Wet fields pushed the harvest back a few weeks, but most farmers are in full swing, reporting yields as high as 60 bushels per acre. Because of $5,931 donated to the Wall Clinic by neighboring townships, Physician’s Assistant Rick Harl of the clinic said that the building has been given a face lift. New carpeting has been installed and ceilings in the first floor area were lowered, according to Harl. An open house for the public is planned sometime in September.

responded to a call east of Wall on the landfill road. Five local juveniles were passengers in a white Datsun pickup when the driver lost control and the pickup rolled over. One occupant of the vehicle was transported by the Wall Volunteer Ambulance Crew to Rapid City Regional Hospital. The accident is still being investigated. The Wall Teeners met the Edgemont team in Wall for a doubleheader on July 17, 1992. Wall won both games. On July 17, 18 and 19, the Philip Invitational Teener Baseball Tournament was held in Philip. Teams participating in the tournament were Belle Fourche, Spearfish, Custer, Pierre B, Pierre Pony AllStar, Philip, Martin and Wall. Spearfish captured first place in the tournament with Pierre B taking second and Philip third. 10 years ago… 2001 Mitchell Vo-Tech graduate, Stacey Slama joined the Wall Clinic as their new medical assistant, June 19. Stacey is originally from Tabor, S.D. While attending school in Mitchell, Stacey became engaged to Dean Schulz of Wall. The two are both currently residing in Wall and planning a June wedding. Some of Stacey’s duties at the clinic include: lab set up, blood tests, urine tests and x-rays. Saturday night’s thunderstorm that brought nourishing rain also brought a show of lightning, lightning that apparently ignited the fire early Sunday morning that razed the historic former Catholic Church in Cottonwood. Volunteer firemen from Philip and Wall responded to the blaze around midnight, but by the time they arrived, the structure was beyond salvation. The cooperative team of about 24 Philip and Wall firemen did manage to protect and salvage the adjacent home, but the aging church was a complete loss.
