Eagles in Europe
On June 28, 2012 high school Social Studies teacher Mr. Ermish and seven students from Wall High School took off from Rapid City for Paris France. Traveling on the eleven day tour of France and Italy where seniors Cheyenne Deering, Heidi Huether, Anna Kitterman, junior Kailey Rae Sawvell, sophomore Kaden Eisenbraun, freshmen Tayah Huether, and Autumn Deering. Cheyenne and Kaden also traveled to China in 2011 with Mr. Ermish. In Paris the group toured the city with specific tours of the Louve Museum and The Royal Palace at Versailles. The Eifel Tower and Notre Dame Cathedral were of course highlights of their time in Paris. While not having enough time to see the entire Louve Museum, something that would take days if not weeks to do, they did have a good game plan to see the most important and famous works of art and history. Each member of the group viewed da’Vinci’s Mona Lisa, The Winged Victory of Samathrace, and the Venus de Milo. In addition, they toured the Egyptian antiquities, Greek antiquities, and Roman art exhibits. At Louis XIV Palace of Versailles, the group received a fully guided tour of the royal apartments and the famed Hall of Mirrors before touring the spectacular gardens. The group traveled by train through the Alps into Italy and their next stop on the tour, Milan, also known as the fashion capital of the world. However, they learned that Milan had played a large role in the unification of Italy and was one of the cultural and
Denke participates in D.C. National Conservation conference
Lynn Denke, national director for the South Dakota Association of Conservation Districts (SDACD) and treasurer of East Pennington Conservation District joined with conservation leaders from across the nation at the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) Summer Legislative Conference, July 16-17 in Washington, D.C. The conference included briefings at the White House, meetings on Capitol Hill and a conservation tour of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. Accompanying Denke were NACD second vice-president Jack Majeres of Dell Rapids, SDACD president Fran Fritz of Iroquois, SDACD executive director Angela Ehlers of Presho and US Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Services (USDANRCS) state conservationist Jeff Zimprich. “I came to Washington to carry the message to the Hill we need locally-lead, incentive-based conservation on the ground. Working with those from other states, we can stress the importance of getting the Farm Bill passed and addressing the severe drought growing across the United States. I was pleased to hear from our Congressional delegation that they support immediate action on the Farm Bill and want to work with us to provide drought relief,” stated Denke. “I was also impressed when the Senate and House Ag Committees noted they relied on our national association for their leadership in developing the Conservation Title of the Farm Bill.” On Monday, July 16, Denke and attendees participated in briefings and a question-and-answer session at the White House with several high-level Administration officials, including: U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Chief of Staff Krysta Harden; USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service Chief Dave White; USDA Deputy Secretary Kathleen Merrigan; U.S. Bureau of Land Management Acting Director Mike Pool; Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Agricultural Counselor Larry Elworth; White House Council on Environmental Quality Associate Director for Land and Water Ecosystems Jay Jensen; and White House Domestic Policy Council Senior Policy Advisor for Rural Affairs Doug McKalip. Following the briefings, participants headed to DuPont’s Chesapeake Farms in Chestertown, Md. for a first-hand look at conservation successes and challenges in the Chesapeake Bay. Ongoing environmental improvement efforts in the Chesapeake Bay are often considered to be a model for watersheds across the nation. “Conservation districts have and continue to play a key role in the success we’ve seen in the Chesapeake Bay,” said NACD President Gene Schmidt. “The 127 conservation districts in the Chesapeake Bay region are leading the way by cooperatively with working landowners, producers, local communities and other partners to implement conservation practices on the ground in this highly sensitive region.” At the Farm, attendees heard from a panel of speakers, including: NACD President-Elect Earl Garber; EPA Chesapeake Bay Program Office Director Nick DiPasquale; DuPont Crop Protection President Rik Miller; and NRCS Chief Dave White. The panelists highlighted the importance of partnerships between private landowners, government agencies and private industry in implementing conservation at the local level. On Tuesday, July 17, Denke led a delegation from the SD Association of Conservation Districts to meet with Senator Thune and staff of Senator Johnson and Representative Noem to discuss local and national conservation issues, particularly regarding Farm Bill Conservation Programs, mountain pine beetle control, and drought mitigation opportunities. For more information on conservation and the Farm Bill, visit: www.nacdnet.org/news/. The South Dakota Association of Conservation Districts is the nonprofit organization representing South Dakota’s 69 conservation districts and the 345 men and women who serve on their governing boards. For 75 years, local conservation districts have worked with cooperating landowners and managers of private working lands to help them plan and apply effective conservation practices.

science centers of the renaissance. In addition to touring the Cathedral of Milan, the group also toured the city castle. On the tour, the students and Mr. Ermish toured several cathedrals and dozens of churches. Each cathedral had its own feel and one seemed to be more spectacular than the last. Those specifically toured by the group included Notre Dame in Paris, The Cathedral of Milan, The Cathedral of Florence, The Cathedral at Pisa, and St. Peters Basilica at the Vatican. In Italy, each of the cathedrals is known as a “duomo”. The word duomo is commonly misunderstood to mean cathedral but the group came to learn that it is actually the name given to the largest or most prestigious place of worship in a town or city. While in Florence, Mr. Ermish and Kailey Rae made the grueling but spectacular climb to the top the cathedral dome. They moved through tight, winding, and sometimes very steep stairways to get a view of Florence only a few get to see. While Pisa is more famous for

Ruby Gabriel – published author
by Del Bartels “It’s More Than a Place ... West River,” is a historical synopsis of the Grindstone and Dowling area. The book has been released by local resident and now published author, Ruby Gabriel. After Gabriel snapped a sunrise silhouette photo of the Pleasant View School building on Christmas morning, 2007, Gabriel told her sister that someone should tell the stories of the area before those stories were lost. Within the few hours, the two discovered in her father’s desk drawer the history of their country school, thus further intriguing Gabriel’s sense of history. Soon after that, a King family descendent now living out of state visited the old Dowling Church. He had memories of it from when he was only six years old. Gabriel unlocked the building and allowed him and his wife in, where the man reminisced. A few weeks later, Gabriel received from him a copy of Bessie King’s old family diary, which contained a wealth of history on the Dowlong area. Gabriel set out to be that someone to tell wanted to write about ranching.” The indexed documentation uses old newspaper clippings, mostly from the South Dakota Historical Society Archives, diaries, local records, cemetery listings and recollections of older residents of the Grindstone area. After the research, “I almost feel like I was there when this happened,” said Gabriel. “I just feel God has lead me to do this. He gave me a wonderful sunrise, and he gave me these people who were lost on the steps of the Dowling Church.” “I couldn’t gather all the information and retell the stories of James Leighton Gilmore better than was done by the newspapers,” said Gabriel, who included stories of Gilmore and three other historical murderers. She noted that the town of Philip’s namesake, Scotty Philip, was the executor of the property of Mexican Ed, who was shot dead during a poker game.

The stories inside take the reader back to when the developing community was part of the Great Sioux Reservation.

to stop the fire. Crews were then able to establish a preimeter around the fire with the help of county blades. Trucks from Wall, Philip, Interior, Box Elder, Badlands National Park, Wall Forest Service, Piedmont, Kadoka and Black Hawk helped to fight the fire and get it surrounded by Thursday evening. West River Electric was also on the scene as the fire burnt 17 high wire poles. Anderson also said, “Fences burned and will have to be replaced.” Fire Departments set up stations where trucks could fill quickly and be back to the fire in a short turn around time. Incident Commander Corey Richardson with the Wall Forest Service is expected to call the fire 100 percent by the end of Friday, July 20. The cause of the fire is under investigation at this time. Local agencies and authorities are encouraging the public to use extreme caution during this high fire danger season.

Fire trucks around the Wall area were called to a fire on Thursday, July 19 along with a Strike team from the hills. The fire began along Interstate 90 at exit 127. Crews battled the blaze in the heat of the afternoon on private and forest service land. Wall Forest Service District Ranger Alan Anderson related the fire ran to the north rather quickly. He noted the fire burned 762 acres of forest service land and 320 acres of private and other land. A C-Plane and helicopter where called in to help contain the fire which was threatening a home and outbuildings. Anderson went on to say the White Creek drainage area helped

Areas around Western South Dakota read in the 100’s on Friday, July 20. Faith was the coolest at 94 degrees while Wall held the hottest temperature at 109 degrees. According to the Weather Channel the outlook until the end on the month will be in the 90’s with slight chances of rain. The Weather Channel also reports, “Unfortunately, all indicators (short and medium-term, August, and August-October) favor above normal temperatures. With much of the Plains already in drought, above normal temperatures expected into the fall, and a dry short-term and 30-day forecast, the drought should persist, with some possible development in the northern Plains. Forecast confidence for the Plains is moderate.”

Protecting your tax dollars
A column by Gov. Dennis Daugaard This week, the state budget office announced that South Dakota closed the 2011-2012 fiscal year in the black. The state’s ongoing revenues exceeded ongoing expenses by $47.8 million. This is good news for South Dakota, and it happened because we applied common sense to our budgeting. Imagine you are the owner and publisher of this newspaper, and you are planning your budget for the coming year. You would have to make your plan based on projections about your newspaper business. Certainly, you would consider recent trends in your business, your experience with newspapers, and the economic health of your town. If you were running that newspaper, would you assume a big increase in advertising sales? Would you plan for lots of new subscribers? Would you calculate that your printing and delivery costs will go down? Of course not. You might hope for those things to happen, but it would be very foolish to take them for granted. If you plan to spend every last dollar under the bestcase scenario, your business will be in trouble if things don’t go as planned. The South Dakota state budget works in the same way. When I came into office, our state faced a projected budget deficit of $127 million. We made tough choices to balance our budget without raising taxes. We hoped that our businesses would quickly bounce back from the recession. We hoped that grain prices would remain high and favorable weather for farmers would continue. We hoped that the growth in Medicaid enrollees would slow down, and that home construction would speed up. We hoped that state departments would come in under-budget. We hoped for these things – but we didn’t take any of them for granted. We didn’t assume everything would go our way. In the fiscal year that just ended, things turned out a little better than we planned. That is good news. It shows that we are being cautious. I would rather have a little extra than come up a little short. And in the 2012 session, we were able to spend extra money on priorities like K-12 education because things turned out better than we planned. South Dakota’s economy is one of the healthiest in the nation, and we have seen a strong rate of recovery in the past 18 months. I’m optimistic about our future. But we still need to guard against future threats. The debt crisis in Europe could pull the world back into recession. Looming federal budget cuts could cost South Dakota as much as $50 million a year, starting next year. Drought conditions in much of South Dakota could lead to a difficult year for our farmers and ranchers. I will continue to be prudent and cautious with your tax dollars so we do not run a deficit. We will not foolishly plan on the best-case scenario. That way, when there is a little extra, we can put it back into our schools and other priorities.
Social Security News
Report your name change to Social Security By Kathy Petersen Social Security Public Affairs Specialist This time of year, we see a lot of weddings, and in many cases that means name changes. If you need to change your name due to marriage, divorce, or any other reason, you will want to report the change to Social Security. There are several reasons to report the change. First, IRS and Social Security match computer records. If the name and Social Security number you report on your tax return do not match the name and Social Security number in our records, it could delay the processing of your return as well as any tax refund you might be due. The second reason it is important to make sure your Social Security records are up-to-date is your potential Social Security benefits are based almost entirely on the earnings record we maintain for you. If your employer reports earnings to the government under your new name, and your Social Security record still shows your old name, those earnings may not get credited to your Social Security earnings record. Missing earnings can lead to lower future Social Security benefits. To change your name in Social Security’s records, you must apply for a new Social Security card. To make the application process faster and easier, just go to www.socialsecurity.gov/ssnumber/ and print out the form for a Social Security card, “Application Form SS-5.” That’s also the form you need if you simply want to apply for a replacement card. The application form also tells you what evidence you will need to submit. Complete the one-page form and bring or mail it to your local Social Security office with proper documentation. All documents must be originals or certified copies and must have information that clearly identifies you, like your date and place of birth. The application includes information on what types of identity and documentation are needed for specific cases, and what sorts of documents we can accept. The application process is easy, and described well (along with other things you may want to know about your Social Security card and number) at www.socialsecurity.gov/ssnumber.

Rapid City mountain lion open house meeting to be rescheduled
The open house meeting to discuss mountain lion management previously scheduled for July 18 at the Outdoor Campus West has been rescheduled for August 7th from 6:00-900 p.m., at the same location. “Rescheduling this meeting will give the public an opportunity to provide input during the official comment period for the proposal and to share their opinions on the Commission’s proposal that will be adopted in early August,” said Mike Kintigh, regional supervisor for western South Dakota. “By moving the meeting to a later date, department staff will be able to share more specific information on lion populations and projected harvest goals for the upcoming season,” Kintigh said. The 2013 South Dakota Mountain Lion Hunting Season will be proposed at the GFP Commission meeting on August 2-3 in Milbank and finalized on October 4-5 at the AmericInn in Deadwood.
SDCA applauds withdrawal of proposed livestock reporting rule
On July 13, 2012, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) withdrew its proposed Clean Water Act (CWA) Section 308 CAFO (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations) Reporting Rule. The proposed rule was the result of an out-of-court settlement agreement between EPA and environmental activists and would have required all cattle operations meeting the regulatory definition of a CAFO to report a long list of information about their operations to EPA, including the precise type and location of the livestock operation. EPA planned to place the information gathered on the agency’s website in a searchable database. The South Dakota Cattlemen’s Association (SDCA) voiced concern, fearing extremists could access the information with the intent to do harm to individual cattle operations or the nation’s food system. Bryan Nagel, a cattle feeder from Avon and chairman of the South Dakota Cattlemen’s Association’s Cattle Feeder Council stated, “This move by EPA is a victory for cattlemen and illustrates the importance of the beef cattle community working together to educate government officials. The importance of cattlemen engaging in the regulatory process and voicing your concerns is most evident in this type of win.” “Results like this verify the benefit of membership in organizations such as SDCA and the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. The collective voices of cattlemen from across the state and nation were heard, preventing overreaching regulation and quieting the extremists looking to harm livestock producers,” stated Todd Wilkinson, Second Vice President of SDCA and a cattle feeder from De Smet. In comments on the propose rule, SDCA pointed out regulatory agencies such as the South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources already collect and monitor CAFOs through their permitting process and encouraged EPA to seek existing data sources to meet the goals of the proposed rule. In withdrawing the rule, EPA noted they will gather and evaluate information on CAFOs obtained from already established relationships with states and federal partners.

Board approves school library self-assessment
The South Dakota Board of Education formally endorsed a selfassessment tool based on the South Dakota School Library Guidelines at a regularly scheduled meeting Monday. The South Dakota Library Association and South Dakota State Library Board previously gave it their seal of approval as well. “Emerging 21st century school libraries reflect a major shift nationwide. Today’s school libraries are learning hubs with physical and digital content, led by teacher/librarians who work with students, teachers, administrators, curriculum and project-based assignments,” said Daria Bossman, assistant state librarian and director of Library Development Services for South Dakota. “As documented in some 60 national studies over the past two decades, school libraries that reflect 21st century best practices are essential to guiding educators’ efforts in meeting the college and career readiness needs of our K-12 student population.” The South Dakota School Library Guidelines outline the components of an effective 21st Century school library and librarian. They describe what is necessary to be exemplary in three specific and distinct areas: Program, Place and Professional. Based on that model, a taskforce developed a scale as a self-assessment tool with accompanying instructions and an award application. The task force was comprised of both certified and non-certified school librarians, teachers and administrators, as well as representatives from the South Dakota Library Association, South Dakota State Library, and the Department of Education. For more information go to the South Dakota State Library webpage, http://library.sd.gov/ or contact the Office of Development Services at 800-423-6665.

Governor Daugaard activates state Drought Task Force
Gov. Dennis Daugaard activated the state Drought Task Force to monitor worsening drought conditions across much of South Dakota. The task force had its first meeting on Monday, July 23, in Pierre. The group coordinated the exchange of drought information among government agencies and agriculture, fire, and water-supply organizations. The information exchange is the key to monitoring the development and seriousness of the drought. The task force will also monitor the impact of drought on economic sectors of the state. “Much of South Dakota was struggling with record flooding just a year ago, but conditions have rapidly reversed,’’ Gov. Daugaard said. “We have been closely tracking weather patterns, and the Drought Task Force will give us a forum to exchange facts and data so our citizens can count on having the most up-to-date information as they respond to the drought.’’ Officials with the South Dakota Department of Agriculture, the state Office of Emergency Management and South Dakota State University Cooperative Extension Service have been actively tracking drought conditions for several weeks. In addition, those agencies have worked with local officials and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency on the agricultural disaster declaration process, including pursuit of options to allow haying and grazing on land enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program. The latest U.S. Drought Monitor (http://droughtmonitor.unl.edu) shows all of South Dakota at least abnormally dry, with some areas in moderate drought and areas of the southwest and south central in severe drought. Agencies and groups represented on the Drought Task Force include the: Governor’s Office, Department of Agriculture, Department of Public Safety, Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Department of Game, Fish and Parks, Bureau of Information and Telecommunications, South Dakota Association of County Commissioners, South Dakota National Guard, state climatologist, federal Farm Service Agency, and South Dakota Association of Rural Water Systems.

Ownership inspection required for all west river livestock
Drought in western South Dakota has accelerated fall cattle sales, and the state Brand Board reminds livestock producers that ownership inspections of cattle, horses and mules are required before their sale, slaughter or removal from the Livestock Ownership Inspection Area, located west of the Missouri River. No one may transport any cattle, horses or mules from the Livestock Ownership Inspection area without an inspection by the Brand Board, unless the shipper possesses a local inspection certificate, market clearance document, shipper’s permit, convoy certificate, lifetime horse transportation permit or an annual horse permit. A local inspection certificate is valid for transportation of livestock out of the inspection area only on the date issued. A shipper’s permit may be acquired up to 48 hours prior to shipment. Enforcement checkpoints will be set up along the border of the Livestock Ownership Inspection Area to check for violations of South Dakota brand laws. Livestock being removed from the ownership inspection area without authorization may be impounded by any law enforcement officer until the animals are inspected for ownership by an authorized brand inspector. The penalty for unauthorized removal is a Class 1 misdemeanor, which carries up to a $2,000 fine, a maximum of one year in jail, or both. To receive a brand inspection, the shipper must contact a brand inspector and allow the inspector ample time to provide it. A shipper’s permit may be acquired by calling the Brand Board office. For more information on how to acquire brand inspections, a shipper’s permit, call the South Dakota State Brand Board at (877) 5740054 or visit www.sdbrandboard.com

Online programs helping high school students succeed
The South Dakota Board of Education received updates Monday during its regularly scheduled meeting on two online programs that create rigor and relevance for high school students. The South Dakota Virtual School provides expanded course offering to students through online studies. It gives students the opportunity to take more Advanced Placement courses, study highly specialized subjects, or receive tailored remedial instruction. In 2011-2012, 133 public school districts and school systems participated in South Dakota Virtual School. That’s up from 88 just three years ago. More than 2,900 full- or part-time students in grades 6-12 use the system, for a total of 3,822 semester registrations. “Especially in many of the smaller districts in the state, schools may not be able to pay a full-time teacher in advanced or highly specialized subjects,” said curriculum specialist Erin Larsen. “The South Dakota Virtual School gives students those same opportunities, increasing the rigor and relevance of their high school education.” Currently, there are 364 semester course offerings through South Dakota Virtual School, with 24 AP courses and 82 credit recovery courses. In the future, the virtual school will expand to offer more courses at the middle-school level. Another program, South Dakota MyLife, is an online career development tool that encourages students to explore careers through interest inventories and skills assessments. Students can then research careers they are matched with and save that data to their online portfolios. With that knowledge, they can use their profiles to plan their academic programs and track their goals. “SDMyLife usage is really high right now,” said Tiffany Sanderson, career and technical education administrator in the Department of Education. “Overall usage has been steadily climbing since we introduced the site four years ago. It’s a good indication that students have access to the resources they need for success in high school and preparation for life after 12th grade.” Completion of the online interest inventories has allowed the state’s education analysts to compare student interest data with workforce needs so teachers and counselors can educate students regarding relevant opportunities in South Dakota. In a related study, it was discovered that students completing career and technical education programs graduated and continued to the postsecondary level at a higher rate than the average student population.

its bell tower, the leaning tower, the group discovered that the cathedral served by the bell tower was magnificent and built from materials recycled from ancient Roman ruins in the area. In Milan the group met up with our bus and driver for the rest of their time in Italy. The driver Leandro was a big hit with the students who learned even with a language barrier that friends can be made. Leandro loved the book given to the tour director as a gift from the group. It contained pictures of South Dakota and specifically the Badlands and the Black Hills. Look for Leandro coming through Wall Drug someday as South Dakota is now on Leandro’s must see list. The bus ride from Milan to Florence was a great opportunity to see some of the Italian country side including fields of ripening wheat, grapes orchards, and olive tree plantations. Florence was perhaps the favorite city visited by the group. The students and Mr. Ermish really got a sense of the renaissance in Florence as they viewed works of art by Michelangelo, including his famed statue of David. The group also learned the Florence is the birth place of the Pinocchio story. The architecture of the city was amazing and the pace of life seemed a bit slower as the group walked around the cathedral square, shops, and of course sampled the gelato. Gelato is a rich ice cream sold on just about every street corner and it is safe to say the kids became a bit addicted to gelato and the seemingly endless flavor choices. Pisa and leaning tower where on the second day of our time in Florence. Pisa today is actually a very quiet city centered on tourism. The group found it very relaxing strolling around the cathedral and the famous leaning tower before having pizza for lunch at one of the local street side restaurants. The drive to Rome from Florence was very enjoyable with stops in the village of San Giamano, famous for its towers; Siena, famous for its horse racing which takes place in the streets; and lunch at winery in Tuscany that is set in the center of their grape and olive tree fields, very beautiful. Our group found Rome and the Vatican to be amazing. To be suddenly standing in the Coliseum, the ruins of the Roman Forum, and the Sistine Chapel brought those historical sites out of the text books and to real life. Students from Wall, SD stood on the very spot Julies Caesar’s body was brought following his assassination. The Vatican was something all the group had been looking forward too. While it was very crowded in the Vatican Museum the group did have a guided tour that spent nearly one-half hour in the Sistine Chapel looking at the ceiling with amazement. The group then traveled by bus from Rome to Pompeii for a tour of the city buried by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD. The city was buried so fast by the falling ash that it was preserved perfectly for twentieth century excavations. Again, it is amazing to think these students walked the streets of a Roman city just as they would have nearly 2000 years ago. The Eagles to Europe tour concluded with two days on the Mediterranean sea in Sorrento and the island of Capri where the group spent some time on the beach and took a boat tour of the island. All in all it was a very educational and fun experience for all. Mr. Ermish was very appreciative to the students for once again being the most attentive, well mannered, and mature students in our very large group. “I think they all benefited from the experience they had and will never forget the cultural and historical lessons they learned.” In 2013 Mr. Ermish plans to take a group of student to England, Ireland, and Wales. There is still time for students and parents to sign up for that trip if they wish.
Crime in South Dakota 2011 publication released
Attorney General Marty Jackley released the Crime in South Dakota 2011 report. This report is compiled by the Attorney General’s Criminal Statistical Analysis Center (SAC). The SAC Unit is the primary clearinghouse for criminal justice statistical data for South Dakota. “The Criminal Statistical Analysis Center and the participating law enforcement agencies continue to provide important crime reporting information for identifying trends in criminal activity to assist in crime prevention and enforcement efforts across South Dakota,” said Jackley. “Our criminal statistics reflect that South Dakota remains a relatively safe place to live as a result of law enforcement efforts, strong community involvement, and a supportive legislature.” South Dakota law enforcement agencies reported a total of 33,340 arrests involving 56,272 offenses in 2011. The more serious offenses included a total of 14,570 arrests and include the following: homicide/negligent manslaughter-16, sex offenses-132, assault-4,306, larceny/theft-3104, fraud-321, drug/narcotic-3,908, gambling-5, prostitution-13, kidnapping-20, robbery-38, arson-30, burglary391, motor vehicle theft-146, counterfeiting-127, embezzlement-29, stolen property-47, destruction of property-724, pornography/obscene material-40 and weapon law violations-158. Less serious offenses totaled 18,770 arrestees, include the following, but not limited to DUI5,775 (5,776 for 2010), liquor law violations-5,338 and disorderly conduct-2,149. Some examples of the South Dakota numbers included an increase in drug arrests of 18% and more than $17 million worth of property loss reported.

2012 Tri-State Conservation Grazing workshop scheduled
A Gathering of Natural Resource Professionals and Livestock Producers to Discuss and Learn About Livestock Grazing as a Land Management Tool. The Society for Range Management will host the 2012 Tri-State Conservation Grazing Workshop at the Dakota Magic Casino near Hankinson, N.D., on Aug. 21-22. The workshop is sponsored by conservation organizations from South Dakota, North Dakota and Minnesota, including the South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks. The Tri-State Conservation Grazing Workshop will bring together natural resource professionals and livestock producers from all three states to learn about the use of livestock grazing as a grassland management and conservation tool. On August 21, participants learn about the current opportunities, information and challenges of managing grassland habitats and achieving conservation objectives with livestock. On August 22, the workshop will consist of a field tour and on-site discussions about livestock grazing for conservation objectives. There is a registeration fee per day, and participants can register until the day of the workshop. To register, visit the 2012 Tri-State Conservation Grazing Workshop web site at: http://www.ag.ndsu.edu/2012conservationgrazingworkshop, or register by phone at 800-627-0326, extension 456 (please mention 2012 Tri-State Conservation Grazing Workshop). Limited space is available. “This workshop is a great way for South Dakota farmers and ranchers to learn about ways to maximize their grasslands not only for livestock production but for wildlife as well,” said Tim Olson, a GFP biologist. “Healthy wildlife populations can go hand in hand with healthy livestock herds and healthy grasslands.” The Society for Range Management (SRM) is the professional society dedicated to supporting people who work with rangelands and have a commitment to their sustainable use. Rangelands comprise nearly half of all the land in the world, and are important for the goods and services produced and ecological services they provide. SRM is dedicated to the conservation and sustainable management of rangelands for the benefit of current and future generations.

What to watch for this Olympics
Team USA is in prime position to defend its medal title from the Beijing Olympics. Here are three things to watch as London hosts the 2012 Olympic Games. Basketball: With NBA stars like LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, and Kevin Durant in the mix, Team USA is favored to win gold. Tough opponents such as Spain and Brazil may have other plans, however. Swimming: Michael Phelps took home eight gold medals in 2008. But fellow American Ryan Lochte has been tearing up the pool recently and expects to challenge Phelps for swimming supremacy. This will be the rivalry to watch in London. Track: New American darling Lolo Jones will look to avenge her hurdle-heartbreak from 2008 and win gold in the 100m hurdles.

Wall News
Gathered by Frances Poste Mary Jane Doyle took Brenda Carmichael and Arla Olson to “Festival in the Park” in Spearfish on Saturday. Senior Citizen Potluck supper was held at Prairie Village on July 19th. There were 27 in attendance. Maybe people had to leave their homes and get out in the heat. It is always on the evening of the third Thursday of the month. “Theme” meal will be on July 30th, a Monday. Menu lists Swiss steak with tomatoes and onions, baked potato with sour cream, Oriental vegetables, grapes and cake. Sounds like a bountiful meal! Luke and Shauna Meyerink of Platte have a new baby girl born July 8th. She weighed 7 lbs. 1 oz. and was named Marlee Kay. She has an older brother Remmington. Debbie and Gary Williams and Mike and Jamie Meyerink are the grandparents. Leslie and Kay Williams are the great-grandparents. Gary, Jess and Les Williams made a trip to Platte to see their new relative. Congratulations to the family. Another birth to report — Shari and Todd Gannon of Worthing, S.D., have a baby boy. He was born July 13th, weighed 6 lbs. 6 oz., 19 inches long and has been named Aiden Keith Lee. Kathy and Bruce Swan are the proud grandparents. Our congratulations go out to that family also. Al and Neioma Meguire were in the Drug Store on Monday morning. Seems they have been on an extended trip through states and are on their loop home to Farmersville, Texas now. They have been visiting as they go and still have stops in Nebraska to see family. It was nice to see them! Anita Peterson of Philip, took Edith Paulsen to visit with Bernice Anderson on Saturday at the Good Samaritan Home in New Underwood. Frank Anderson was visiting also. Got word that Meta Dabney, sister of the late Carol Paulsen, is not well. She hasn’t felt good for, at least, two to three weeks and didn’t feel like eating. They believe she has developed pneumonia now and is in a hospital. Lyle and Viola Williams attended the memorial service for Amy Barber that was held at the First Baptist Church in Rapid City on Saturday morning. Amy taught in the Wall High School leading the choral music program and home economics programs. We offer our condolences to the family. When Barry Poste came for Wall’s celebration, he had the misfortune to puncture a tire on the Corvette. It was impossible to buy one here or Rapid City, so he ended up taking the wheel and old tire to Denver in his mom’s car on Sunday of last week. He returned to Wall, Tuesday evening, with a new tire, put it on the car and returned to Littleton on Wednesday — a lot of traveling in a few days! Seems to be no end to this heat with very little rain. Airconditioning is a “blessing” we didn’t have years ago. Glad our power hasn’t gone off. Hope for a better week. “Discontentment makes rich men poor while contentment makes poor men rich.” ~Anonymous

Good Samaritan Society
Our summer has really been hot! Some of the residents have stated “it's as hot as it was in the dirty thirties”. Sunday, the Wall Singers came and did gospel music, Mary Erz, Hazel Kalkbrenner and Barb Williamson. The residents do enjoy their time of fellowship. We are getting a few cherry tomatoes out of our garden. Rev. Darwin Kopfmann from the Wall Methodist church held worship service, and Dorothy Shearer led our hymn sing. Wednesday was Community Coffee after Mass, and residents do enjoy the time to visit with some friends from the community. They have coffee and cinnamon rolls. Our Bingo helpers are Bonnie Elliott, Verna Maude, Margaret Larsen, Freddie Ferguson. and they are volunteers. Rev. Wes Weilman held worship service and Marti Aus led our hymn sing. Friday afternoon, residents enjoyed rootbeer floats. Until next time…May God bless.
Wasta talent show 2012
The following is a list of the participants and their talent from the Wasta Talent Show that was held during their 4th of July celebration. “National Anthem” was sang by Regan Simons. Kipp Cordes sang “You Ain’t Nothing But a Hound Dog”, Piper Cordes sang “Stupid Cupid”, and Kipp and Piper Cordes sang “You’ve God a Friend In Me”. Their mom, Paige Cordes, also sang a solo. Gaye Hadlock, Alice Richter and Alma Crosbie sang “God Bless America, Again” and Gaye played the accordion. Rachel Shuck sang “Memories” and was accompanied by Cheri Shuck. Emily Shuck, dad Chad, and cousins Beca and Ryan did a dance routine. Regan Simons sang “Made In America”, and Regan, Thayne and Athena Simons sang “How Great Thou Art”. Paisley Godfrey played a piano solo “The Entertainer”. Sofia Irigoyen sang “America the Beautiful” and was accompanied by Dorothy Shearer. Ash and Madi Grenstiner sang “Johnny Brubeck’s Machine”. Winter Godfrey and Madi Grenstiner sang “The Rose” and was accompanied by Dorothy Shearer. John Deering sang “Fly Over States”. Eva and Reece Abbott did a dance routine.

Garrett Shearer played a piano solo “Scott Jophin’s Ragtime”. Andy, lady from Louisiana, read an inspirational “Rural America and Little Miracles”. Daughter Alita Irigoyen, her daughters Caitlin, Olivia and Sofia, niece Jaime Layden and her daughter Jade performed a musical/comedy skit. It was a wonderful line-up of various talents and performers. All we needed was Matt Trask!
A.C. to be sure it’s working! Speaking of the Humphrey family, news of Anna Lee’s continued progress with her physical therapy and rehabilitation is very optimistic. Daughter, Peggy from Gillette, Wyo., came to spend the day with her mom this past week. Barb Crawford sent home a jar of her recent batch of chokecherry syrup. While it may be a little warm to whip up some pancakes, chokecherry syrup is really, really tasty on Ice Cream! WITH CHOPPED PECANS, YUM! Kerry Herriger has been seen buzzing around the streets of Wasta, (riding? driving?) something that looks a little like an office chair with a very sweet parasol some how affixed to provide shade. Word is that he bought it for Joyce. Could be, but I’ve not yet seen Joyce riding through town. Looks like something fun for a poker run! Our long time Wasta residents,
Marilyn Keyser, is having a rough go of it. For any of you who haven’t heard, Marilyn was diagnosed with lung cancer in February. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. Cards can be sent to the Wasta Post Office and they will be forwarded on to her. Lloyd and I have been adventuring in the Black Hills cool (as in temperature) spots. We take a picnic, some comfy chairs and enjoy the pines, the water and often some conversation with tourists. Then we come home, feed our cat, sleep in our own bed and head out again! A reminder from “Louisiana Andy” (talent show guest) on “awareness of little daily miracles”. Being cool enough in our neck of the woods, Monday morning to comfortably work outside with flowers, weeds, whatever and what all, until 10:45 a.m.! Seems like a miracle to me! Happy Trails!
Countryside News
Submitted by Lola Joyce Riggins 837-2053 Greetings… First off I owe Mary Paulsen an apology, she is always so faithful in sending their news and there were a few that gave me their news. I have been through some problems and they have taken more out of me than I realized at first. I am hoping that things are straightening out. Jim Allbee of Maple Lake, Minn., and his daughter Stacey Anderson of Shakopee, Minn., arrived to Jim’s sister and brotherin-law, Delmer and Mary Paulsen’s of Quinn, recently for a visit. They enjoyed touring the Wall Drug Store inside because of the heat, Tuesday, the 3rd. The 4th, they traveled to Belle Fourche to Darrin and Jackie Paulsen home and to help Dreyson observe his 5th birthday. the Paulsens were great host and hostesses. Jim and Stacey so enjoyed the get-together with nephew Dawson, uncle Tom of Lead and friends and neighbors of the Paulsen. The heat and dry weather is so dangerous with the lightning starting fires north of Kadoka, Pringle and areas around. The tragedies are certainly putting us on an unsafe feeling. Jim Allbee and Stacey Anderson enjoyed visiting Tom Paulsen the evening in Lead and sometime in Deadwood. Delmer and Mary Paulsen also got a call from daughter Lynn Mary Blaseg of Colorado Springs, Colo., about the fire there. It was just across the interstate. They were put on alert but didn’t have to evacuate. Lucille Merman of Minn., sister to Mary, left for Atwater, Minn., the end of June. Lucille had been visiting in the Paulsen home and left to visit in sister Margaret and brother-in-law Augie Anderson home. Mary feels Lucille will be a big help as Augie is suffering with Lew Body Dementia. I had a few items that got mislaid between the ambulance ride and days in the hospital. I hope I’m straightened out and again if some one wants to take this over, be my guest. I have enjoyed keeping in touch but I would appreciate more interest and cooperation.

Wasta Wanderings
Submitted by Lloyd & Margee Willey When hot days persist, and even the nights are hot, thoughts go to those times before A.C. and what in the world did we do? How did those people in “The Olden Days” manage? Carl Humphrey remembers that his mother would hang wet towels at the windows. He also remembers Elk Creek had a pretty good little swimming hole. It was a convenient stop for a quick dip when going from stacking hay to the house for dinner. Carl’s dad was still doing a lot of work with horses so it doesn’t take much to envision kids, horses, dogs, maybe even Dad enjoying a cool off in that swimmin’ hole! They had a good porch where you could lay your mattress and sleep outside. I wonder how Mrs. Humphrey cooked those big nourishing meals in the heat. Okay, that got me right off the pity pot. Think I’ll go check the

Tomorrow’s Leaders
"MilleNNiAlS" iN GooD PoSiTioN To iNveST foR The fuTuRe Richard Wahlstrom www.edwardjones.com If you were born anywhere from 1982 to 2001, or within a few years of this range, you are considered a “Millennial.” As a member of this group, you share many things — cultural references, familiarity with technology, attitudes toward work and family — with others your age. And if you’re one of the “older” Millennials, you and your peers have something else in common — specifically, you have a good opportunity to launch investment strategies to help you save for the future. Why are you so well positioned to invest for the future? For one thing, it’s because you have so much of the future ahead of you. As an investor, time is your greatest ally, for a couple of reasons. First, the more years you have to invest, the greater the growth potential of your investments. And second, by investing for the long term, you can help reduce the impact of periods of short-term volatility on your portfolio. Furthermore, since you may be in the early stage of your career, you probably have yet to reach your maximum earnings and may be eligible to put in the full annual amount to a Roth IRA, one of the most effective retirement savings vehicles available. (Eligibility to contribute to a Roth IRA is phased out over a specific income range.) When you invest in a Roth IRA, your earnings have the opportunity to grow tax free, provided you don’t start taking withdrawals until you’re at least 59½ and you’ve had your account for at least five years. Even if you do contribute to a Roth IRA, you can still participate in your employer-sponsored retirement plan, such as a 401(k) if you work for a company, a 457(b) if you work for a state or local government, or a 403(b) if you work for a school or other tax-exempt organization. And you should indeed contribute to your employer’s plan, because it offers some key benefits: Your earnings accumulate on a tax-deferred basis, and you typically fund your plan with pre-tax dollars. So the more you put in, the lower your taxable income. (Taxes are due upon withdrawal, and withdrawals prior to age 59½ may be subject to a 10% IRS penalty.) The amount you can afford to put into your 401(k) or other employer-sponsored plan depends on your earnings and other circumstances — but you should at least strive to contribute enough to earn your employer’s match, if one is offered. Otherwise, you’ll be walking away from “free” money. All the money you contribute to your plan is yours, but if you leave your job before a specified vesting period — which often ranges from three to seven years — you may not be able to keep all your employer’s contributions. Check your plan’s rules to see how this applies to you. Of course, since you, as a Millennial, are in the early stage of your working years, you may well be on the lookout for new job opportunities. But if you are close to being fully vested in your 401(k), you might consider waiting a few extra months — or even a year — to take a new job, so that you can leave with the money your employer has contributed. As a Millennial, you’ve got time on your side as you invest for the future. So make sure you take advantage of all the opportunities that come your way.

by Cornelius R. Stam It has been well said that if there is anything good in any man it is because it was put there by God. And something good -- a new nature - has been imparted by God to every true believer in Christ. While there is still within us "that which is begotten of the flesh," there is also "that which is begotten of the Spirit," and just as the one "cannot please God," so the other always pleases Him. Adam was originally created in the image and likeness of God, but he fell into sin and later "begat a son in his own likeness, after his image" (Gen. 5:3). It could not be otherwise. Fallen Adam could generate and beget only fallen, sinful offspring, whom even the law could not change. But "what the law could not do, in that it was weak [because of] the flesh, God, sending His own Son, in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin," accomplished, "that the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit" (Rom. 8:3,4). As Adam was made in the likeness of God, but fell, so Christ was made in the likeness of sinful flesh -- though without sin -- to redeem us from the fall, that by grace, through the operation of the Spirit, a new creation might be brought into being, "the new man which after God, is created in righteousness and true holiness" (Eph. 4:24). Thus in addition to our fallen Adamic nature true believers, through faith, have also become "partakers of the divine nature" (II Pet. 1:4). This is the "inner man" of which Paul speaks in Eph. 3:16, and this "inner man" delights to do God's will (Rom. 7:22). The Adamic nature, which Scripture calls "the flesh," is that which was generated by a fallen begetter. It is sinful in itself, even in the believer. It cannot be improved or changed. But "that which is born [or begotten] of God" always pleases Him. It was begotten by the Spirit of God Himself. This is why our Lord said to Nicodemus: "That which is born of the flesh is flesh; that which is born of the Spirit is spirit....Ye must be born again" (John 3:6,7).

It will be good for me. I will take action on this growth and set out to improve myself in this area of my life immediately. And speaking of loyalty, we thank YOU for being such a loyal reader!
Looking for Loyalty
loy·al·ty 1. A feeling or attitude of devoted attachment and affection. 2. Faithfulness or devotion to a person, a cause, obligations, or duties: allegiance, constancy, faithfulness, fealty, fidelity, steadfastness. 3. The condition of being closely tied to another by affection or faith. affection, attachment, devotion, fondness, liking, love. (Reference: Answers.com) The process of preparing to write about this subject of LOYALTY forced me to really search inside myself and ask about my personal loyalties. Have I honestly earned the right to write and speak on this subject? It required a lot of soul searching and recalling if I have a positive history of being loyal or not in my life. Immediately, I was struck with this thought: I know that I have not been as loyal as my golden retriever, Sheba, has been to me. I think dogs really understand the concept of loyalty better than we human beings, and Sheba has become even more loyal as she has aged and mat ured. As her reddish-golden coat turns to gray and silver around her face (I've noticed the same thing while I am looking in the mirror!) she becomes more and more devoted to me. She has always been a very loyal lady friend-always accepting of me, ever faithful, affectionate, and always ready and willing to go for a ride in my pickup truck. Sheba has been there for me as a loyal friend and incredible hunting partner, and I am so blessed to have her. I know many of you pet owners will be agreeing with me as to the loyalties found in our furry friends. It feels good to be on the receiving end of such loyalty, doesn't it? This should challenge us to look for ways in our own lives to offer our loyalties to others. I challenge you to take time to reread the definition above, as you think of ways that you can and will become a more loyal friend, sibling, employee, spouse, parent or child. We are each so very capable of stepping up to the plate of loyalty. My soul searching is forcing me to stretch out of my comfort zones a bit and go the extra mile in being loyal to someone. I am okay with that. I need to do it.

Area News
Badlands National Park/Minuteman Missile National Historic Site, S.D. — We welcome visitors to enjoy their national parks and public lands this summer – but please do so with caution. Due to excessive heat, drier than normal conditions, and high fire danger, we encourage you to read the following precautions: •Before going hiking or camping, check for fire restrictions and closures in the area. Direct your inquiries to the agency that manages the public lands you are visiting. •Consider alternatives to campfires, even when they are allowed. Never leave a campfire or portable stove unattended. •If you are driving on unpaved roads, avoid parking or driving your vehicle in tall, dry vegetation. Hot vehicle parts can start a fire. •If you see smoke or fire, note the location and report it to au-

thorities. Do NoT attempt to put out a fire by yourself. Campfires are never allowed in Badlands National Park due to the extreme danger of prairie wildfire. Camp stoves or contained gas grills can be used in the campgrounds or picnic areas. Electrical hook-ups are available in the Cedar Pass Campground, operated by Forever Resorts (http://cedarpasslodge.com/lodging/). In addition, the following restrictions are now in place: •No smoking outside a closed vehicle within the boundaries of either park; •No charcoal grills of any kind. Summer temperatures in Badlands National Park and Minuteman Missile often exceed 105 degrees. Be prepared whether you are touring by car or hiking; both Badlands National Park and the Badlands South Unit have water
bottle filling stations. Carrying extra water and food is always a good idea in these remote areas of southwestern South Dakota. Hikers should be prepared with hats, sunscreen, water, electrolyte replacement supplements and food. Always tell someone where you will be traveling, and understand that cell coverage is unreliable. Water and salty snacks are available at the Cedar Pass Lodge and at the Ben Reifel Visitor Center’s Badlands Natural History Association bookstore (http://www.badlandsnha.org). Have a safe and enjoyable visit to your national parks and public lands.

Kennedy Implement, Philip, has been chosen as the 2012 Dealership of the Year by Farm Equipment magazine. Farm Equipment presents its Dealership of the Year awards annually to farm machinery dealers in two categories. One is for those with annual sales revenues of under $50 million and the other for dealers with more than $50 million in annual sales revenues. Kennedy Implement earned the distinction in the under $50 million in annual sales revenue category this year, not only for its outstanding financial and operating performance that has seen significant growth over the past three years, but also for its demonstrated commitment to employee training and community involvement, as well as its renowned customer service. Kennedy Implement is a New Holland and McCormick dealer. It also carries Woods, Westfield, Wheatheart, Brandt, Walinga, SnoBlast/TeamCo, Grass-hopper, and Vermeer, along with other lines available through distribution. The dealership was chosen for the award by a panel of renowned farm equipment experts. In their selection of Kennedy Implement as Farm Equipment’s Dealership of the Year for 2012, the judges noted, “The staff consists of 11 employees who really produce. The dealership had the highest ‘dollars generated per employee’ at $1,247,532. This is a very strong number when you consider the smaller staff size. Their return on assests was the highest of all nominees at 22 percent. They had the highest market share and their absorption rate was also the highest of all nominees in the small dealership category. The staff believes in a team concept ... ‘If one fails, we all fail.’ This concept helped them receive the number one market share in South Dakota for ag tractors and hay tools. The judges unanimously agreed that Kennedy Implement was deserving of the 2012 first place award in the small dealership category.” The judging panel included Dr. W. David Downey, director, Center for Agricultural Business, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Ind.; David L. Kahler, retired chief executive officer of the Ohio-Michigan Equipment Dealers Association, Dublin, Ohio; and Charles Glass, president, Glass Management Group, Arlington, Texas. Originally founded in 1943, Kennedy Implement has seen significant changes in all aspects of the dealership over the last five years. Mark Buchholz took over management of the dealership in 2008, and then purchased it from the previous owner, Denny Kennedy, in 2010. This change has brought on a new direction in the day-to-day operations. Since Buchholz purchased the dealership, they have added Grasshopper, Woods, Brandt and Vermeer to the already competitive lines in house. “Niche marketing has helped us find locations for used equipment to find homes elsewhere. This can be seen directly in our Internet sales,” Buchholz said. “In 2011, we were able to sell in 22 different states or provinces and had approximately 45 sight-unseen sales with no negative comebacks. This has allowed us to move equipment to satisfied customers in new areas. We are continually looking to improve our image in the community and nation.” Kent Buchholz added, “We’re doing enough now online, there is no real slow time.” In 2011 Kennedy Implement received the Top Market Share in South Dakota – Ag Tractors, and Top Market Share in South Dakota – Haytools. “While these awards are presented to the dealerships, they are a true testament to our customers. They trust us enough to sell them a quality product because of our quality service,” M. Buchholz said. Kennedy Implement’s selection as 2012 Dealership of the Year is featured in the July/August issue of Farm Equipment, viewable at www.farm-equipment.com. Farm Equipment magazine, based in Brookfield, Wis., serves more than 12,000 farm equipment dealers, wholesalers and distributors throughout North America. It’s also the publisher of Rural Lifestyle Dealer magazine, Farm Catalog, Ag Equipment Intelligence, No-Till Farmer and the Conservation Tillage Product Guide. The Nebraska National Forests and Grasslands Deputy Supervisor, Steve Lenzo, announced expansion of a 1998 shooting closure to include all black-footed ferret management areas located on the Wall Ranger District of Buffalo Gap National Grassland. The new additions are located in three main areas: 1. The area around Scenic, SD, north of Badlands National Park 2. The Steer Pasture Complex located north of Badlands National Park between Highway 240 and Forest System Road 7116 3. The area West of Interior, SD Expansion of the current shooting closure is necessary to protect habitat for the black-footed ferret, a federally endangered species. All closure areas were specifically designated as black-footed ferret reintroduction habitat in the Nebraska National Forests and Grassland’s 2001 Land and Resource Management Plan, including the 2008 Amendment that allows closure without formal comment periods due to changed conditions. Epizootic plague, the main factor leading to changed conditions, emerged in Conata Basin in 2008, and has resulted in a massive reduction in habitat and corresponding decline in black-footed ferret populations. In 2007 Conata Basin was one of the most successful black-footed ferret sites in North America with a population of 335 animals, but 2011 numbers have declined to only 72 animals. The existing prairie dog shooting closure, in effect since 1998, totals 60,670 acres. Even as today’s newly expanded closure adds 18,755 acres, it is important to note that due to effects of plague, remaining prairie dog towns are widely scattered and actually occupy less than 1,000 acres within the expanded closure. Additionally, the Wall Ranger District has been selected as a scientific research area for efforts to develop an oral sylvatic plague vaccine. This three-year, field test trial is being done with the National Wildlife Health Center, USGS, and the University of Wisconsin with the intent to halt black-footed ferret extinction, and potential human illness or fatalities in regions where prairie dogs reside. Prairie dog colonies selected for research will be closed to shooting throughout the field trial period. Announcing the shooting closure expansion Lenzo said, “I’m authorizing this action only after careful consideration and discussions with the South Dakota Departments of Agriculture and Game and Fish, and also with recreational sports shooting groups including the National Rifle Association, Varmint Hunters and the 40 organizations represented by the Shooting Sportsmen Round Table. Because of the extensive impact plague has had on black-footed ferrets, our responsibilities require action to protect remaining habitat while we concurrently provide research conditions to develop an effective vaccine.” The Forest Service recognizes the recreational and economic value of sport shooting on public lands. Approximately 8,000 acres remain open for recreational prairie dog shooting, and more than one million acres remain open to recreational sport shooting on the Nebraska National Forests and Grasslands. The closure is immediately effective and will be enforced.

Ruby Gabriel – published author
continued from page 1
The information runs the gamut of 710 rabbits being killed during a two-day hunt, to poetry about the old schoolhouse chalkboard, to obituaries of people in the Dowling Community Church Cemetery. “There’s a whole section of babies buried out there. It’s very sad,” said Gabriel. In putting the book together, Gabriel said, “I had a wonderful time. I think if you are going to be addicted to something, history is a great thing.” One of the quoted early newspapers was The Grindstone Bee. “The whole thing was a hoot,” said Gabriel, who found that the paper’s owner, William Henry Bruno, would “publish whenever I feel like it or have time to waste.” He would barter for payment, but would not accept prunes. Newspapers were important in the area’s early history because the Homesteading Act required potential landowners to publish their stakes in a newspaper five consecutive times. Gabriel has been asked to hold book signings, at Stoneville, July 21, at Chamberlain where the book was printed, at Union Center sometime in August and at Caputa. She is already working on her next book, about ghost towns of Meade and Perkins counties.

MINUTES JULY 9, 2012 6:30PM The Wall City Council met for a regular meeting July 9, 2012 at 6:30 pm in the Community Center meeting room. Members Present: Dave Hahn, Mayor; Rick Hustead, Councilman; Bill Leonard, Councilman; Jerry Morgan, Councilman; Stan Anderson, Councilman; Mike Anderson, Councilman Members absent: Pete Dunker, Councilman Carolynn Anderson, Finance Officer; Jeff Clark, Public Works Director; Lindsey Hildebrand, Chamber/Assistant FO; Lt. Kraig Wood, Pennington County Sheriff’s Office; Laurie Hindman, Pennington Co. Courant; Eric Brunnemann, Badlands National Park; Alan Anderson, Forest Service; Ruben Andrade, Minuteman Missile; Donny Kelly; Skyler Anders; Jim Kitterman (All action taken in the following minutes carried by unanimous vote unless otherwise stated.) Motion by Leonard, second by S Anderson to approve the agenda with the addition of an expired building permit for Darren and Rachel Buhmann. Motion carried. Lt. Wood presented the police report. Extra law enforcement will be present on July 13th and 14th for the Wall Celebration. Skyler Anders addressed the council on hiring her as a contract employee so the water aerobics classes would fall under the city’s insurance. The sessions would be twice a week for six weeks. Motion by S Anderson, second by Morgan to approve Skyler Anders as a contract employee for the purpose of water aerobics. Motion carried. Note: Anders pay will only be the revenue collected for the classes, so there will be “0” cost to the Municipality of Wall for this service. Eric Brunnemann, Badlands National Park superintendent, addressed the council with a proposal of hanging banners throughout the town to promote the programs and events at Badlands National Park; he sees Wall as a gateway community to the park. He would like to see more National Park emblems so visitors know they are coming into a gateway community and the available events may encourage them to stay longer. He will continue to work with the city to put together a proposal.

Dr. Dobson Answers your Questions
QueSTioN: My spouse doesn't get along with my parents and siblings, and this has led to serious conflict in our marriage. My mom and dad have always enjoyed hosting big get-togethers with the extended family, especially during the holidays, but things have gotten so bad that my spouse is no longer willing to be a part of these gatherings. I'm tired of dealing with all this tension and dissension. Can you suggest a solution? ANSWeR: The situation you're describing is extremely common: in home after home, family gatherings that are supposed to be filled with love and warmth end up turning into tense, uncomfortable confrontations. But that doesn't mean that you or your spouse have to regard this kind of conflict as acceptable or unavoidable. As intelligent and morally responsible human beings, you are both capable of making choices that can lead to positive change. The first thing you need to do is sit down together and discuss this problem in a rational manner. Find a time — perhaps over coffee or after dinner at a nice restaurant — when you can lay your concerns on the table and make a concerted effort to hammer out some kind of solution. It's vital that the two of you find a way to get on the same team and come to a meeting of the minds over this issue. Relationships with extended family are an important and inevitable part of every marriage. This is a fact that you're going to have to face together if you want to build a marital relationship that will go the distance. Perhaps it would be possible to work out a compromise of some kind. For example, consider the option of skipping certain holidays or planning alternatives to the big family gatherings every other year. When the next holiday is approaching, tell your parents that, while you appreciate the invitation, you and your spouse have decided to spend a quiet Christmas or Easter with your own immediate family this year. This may have the effect of removing some of the stress and tension and making it easier for your spouse to face the family gathering the next time around. A second choice would be to attend the gathering, but make plans to stay at a local hotel rather than in your parents' home. You might explain that while you're looking forward to spending time with them, you'd also like to have
the option of reserving some time and space to yourselves. Then, if things become absolutely unbearable for you or your spouse, you can always politely excuse yourselves and take refuge in the tranquility of your hotel room. QueSTioN: We have three boys in grade school and our two older sons are constantly picking on their younger brother. I intervene when I can, but the youngest one is beginning to play the victim, and I don't want to encourage him in that attitude. How do I handle this complicated situation? ANSWeR: If it's any consolation to you, you're not alone. Every parent with more than one child deals with sibling rivalry at some point or other. In some families these conflicts even extend into adulthood, with adults in their 30s, 40s and 50s competing with one another like grade school kids. That's why it's important to do everything you can to nip them in the bud before the situation escalates. You didn't mention whether you're a single parent or not, so for purposes of our answer we'll assume that you're married and that your sons are growing up in a home with a present, involved and
caring father. We have a good reason for insisting on this point. Dads have a powerful influence on their sons, whether for good or ill. Boys tend to imitate their father's behavior, including his treatment of other people. This leads us to ask the following questions. In your household, does dad model patience, kindness and respect in his relationship with other members of the family? Does he set firm limits on the boys' behavior, implementing swift consequences when the older ones pick on their little brother? If not, it's time for him to step up to the plate. If he is doing these things consistently, then the issue may be that your older sons feel they need to compete for their mother's time and affection. Strange as it may seem, picking on little brother may be a way of saying, "Mom, I want you to pay attention to me." In a case like this, one good way to solve the problem is to make sure that both mom and dad schedule one-on-one time with each of the boys a few times each week. This could involve something as simple as a trip to store with you, a game of catch in the park or a walk around the neighborhood. If your older sons are acting out because they're feeling a bit neglected, this individual time with them could make a huge difference in their behavior.

The campground is an expansion of Angostura Recreation Area, and campsites will be available on a first-come, first-served basis for the rest of the camping season. “Many improvements have been made to the Sheps Canyon area,” said Willy Collignon, District Park Supervisor. “We now have electrical campsites, a shower house, a dump station, a security light at the boat ramp, and the parking lot has been expanded.” A state park entrance license is required to enter the park.
