Sand County Foundation, the
South Dakota Cattlemen's Associ-
ation and the South Dakota Grass-
land Coalition have announced the
Pat and Mary Lou Guptill ranch,
Quinn, as the recipient of the 2013
Leopold Conservation Award,
which honors South Dakota
landowner achievement in volun-
tary stewardship and management
of natural resources.
“Having grown up on a farm, I
know how precious the land is to
South Dakotans who owe their
livelihoods to our natural re-
sources,” said South Dakota Gover-
nor Dennis Daugaard. “Farmers
and ranchers, such as the Guptill
family, take great care to maintain
those resources for generations to
The Guptill Ranch is a 7,000-
acre cattle operation. The Guptills
have owned and operated this fam-
ily-run ranch for the past 25 years.
With their five children, they are
caretakers of this special landscape
in western South Dakota. The area
features grasslands with rolling
hills and a main wooded creek run-
ning through the ranch.
In 2000, as their children grew
older, the Guptills decided to make
changes to lower production costs
and enhance the health of the land
to make the ranch better and bring
their family home. Innovation and
change have been beneficial to the
operation, according to P. Guptill.
“The more we change, the more
we learn,” P. Guptill said. “We hope
we can help other producers bypass
all the mistakes we made along the
way to make their operations work.
Our goal is to make the land better
for future generations.”
“The foreword to A Sand County
Almanac, Aldo Leopold's environ-
mental classic, points out, ‘When
we see land as a community to
which we belong, we may begin to
use it with love and respect.’ You
are unlikely to find agriculturalists
elsewhere in our United States
who exceed the Guptill family’s use
of land with love and respect,” said
Brent Haglund, president of the
Sand County Foundation.
The $10,000 award and a crystal
depicting Aldo Leopold, will be pre-
sented to the Guptills at the South
Dakota Cattlemen's Association's
annual convention in December.
The ranch will also be featured
during a ranch tour this summer.
The Leopold Conservation
Award is presented in honor of
renowned conservationist and au-
thor Aldo Leopold, who called for

After postponing the annual
board of equalization meeting due
to inclement weather, the Haakon
County Commission was able to
convene April 16 for the meeting.
Toni Rhodes, director of equal-
ization, had good news and bad
news for the board of equalization.
The good news was that no objec-
tion applications were filed. The
bad news, she discovered several
parcels that had errors regarding
soil acres. With those errors, some
parcels were overtaxed and others
undertaxed. She noted the errors
occurred prior to her taking the po-
After discussing the parcels with
Rhodes the board approved more
than 30 motions for either in-
creases or decreases.
The board adjourned as a board
of equalization and reconvened for
a special commission meeting.
Highway Superintendent Kenny
Neville discussed low maintenance
roads with the board. He informed
them that the existing roads noting
no maintenance are invalid. He
said he has ordered signs with the
words, low maintenance, travel at
own risk, on them. One such road
is washed out and the landowner
has created an access to his dam
grade to make the area passable to
local traffic. Neville noted that cul-
verts, depending on size would cost
between $9,000 and $21,000. In ad-
dition would be the labor to install
the culverts. He added that the
road has been washed out for about
15 to 20 years.
The board asked State’s Attorney
Gay Tollefson about liability issues
should there be an accident at the
wash out or dam grade. She noted
she would research state laws and
report back to them.
The board approved a right of
way agreement with Golden West
Telecommunications for fiber optic
The board clarified that while
the bid for the sprinkler system for
the courthouse and the Horizons
group’s landscaping can be on the
same bid, the Horizons group will
have to pay for the line to their
area as well as the drip system.
The board approved nine elderly
and tax freeze applications pre-
sented by Rhodes. Approximately
150 tax exempt parcels, which in-
clude churches, nonprofits, govern-
ment, etc., were also approved.
Rhodes informed the board of
two tax refunds that needed ap-
proval due to clerical errors. The
board approved the request. Seven
tax abatements were also ap-
Auditor Patricia Freeman out-
lined comparables in sample
county support of the poor policy
handbooks that she had obtained.
The board members had not yet re-
viewed the material which they
were given at the April 2 meeting
so discussion was tabled until the
May 7 meeting.
The board approved for Rhodes
to attend two meetings, one is in
Oacoma April 29 and 30, the other
in May for the annual conference.
Commissioners meet as equalization board
A Good Neighbor Award recogni-
tion banquet was held Saturday,
April 20, in the Philip High School
gymnasium. Sponsored by the Cat-
alyst Club, the event honored four
local residents – Mike and Marcia
West, Philip, Robert Young, Union
Center, and Wayne Davis, Wall.
Pastor Harold Delbridge, presi-
dent of the Catalyst Club gave the
welcome. The invocation and bene-
diction were done by Pastor Frezil
Westerlund. Gale Patterson, emcee
for the event, said, “What makes a
good neighbor? They go out of their
way to help others. They find it in
their heart to help others.” Audi-
ence members came from as far
away as California and Alaska.
Dinner music was performed by
the Twilighters, a four-piece band
from Wall. The meal was cated by
The Steakhouse and served by the
Philip Health Services Inc. Hospi-
tal Auxiliary. Barry and Edna
Knutson, Philip, sang each hon-
oree's favorite song during that
person's introduction: Robert
Young – “Amarillo by Morning,”
Marcia West – “People Who Need
People,” Mike West – “Lord Listen
to Your Children,” and Wayne
Davis – “You Raise Me Up.” Del-
bridge concluded the ceremony by
saying, “Thank you for making a
difference in our lives.”
Michael West served in the Army
National Guard and started his
teaching career in the early 1960s.
He taught for four years before
joining his family business at
Dorothy Brothers' Garage. He
served on the Philip City Council
as as mayor from 1975-1988. In the
late 1980s the garage changed
hands and Michael went back into
the school system where he taught
and coached. He spent many years
coaching all the sports in the Philip
school system and officiating for 30
plus years. Michael has been in-
ducted in the Philip High School
Hall of Fame, 1996 Black Hills
State University Athletic Hall of
Fame, South Dakota High School
Activities Association Distin-
guished Service Award, and 2012
Amateur Baseball Hall of Fame.
Marcia West taught business ed-
ucation and physical education,
and became the kindergarten
through 12th grade school coun-
selor in 1988. She dedicated her life
to teaching, where she was an
amazing influence on her students
for 40 years, all in the Philip school
district. Marcia was honored by
being inducted into the Philip High
School Hall of Fame, Philip Ma-
sonic Citation for Distinquished
Service, Souoth Dakota Schol
Counselor of 1997 and 2003, South
Dakota Student Council Advisor of
the Year, SDHSAA Distinguished
Service Award, and BHSU Out-
standing Educator Award.
Marcia and Michael were nomi-
nated to receive the Good Neighbor
Award because they are huge sup-
porters and promoters of the people
who live in and around Philip,
where they are involved in the local
organizations. They are faithful
members of the First Lutheran
Church of Philip, and have held all
the offices of the church council, as
well as being in charge of the
women's group, the youth group,
alter guild and ushers.
Michael is the head of the AARP
chapter in Philip. He and Marcia
established the Old Schoolhouse
Park and maintain it through the
AARP/RTA group. They help main-
tain the Lasting Legacy Monu-
ment. Marcia heads up the local
Retired Teachers Association and
both she and Michael are past offi-
cers of the Philip Chamber of Com-
merce. They are involved with the
Cancer Support Group and Relay
For Life. They are members of the
Country Cupboard food pantry in
Wall and help with distribution to
people in need in the Philip area.
Michael is a member of the Haaken
County Crooners, which raises
enough money to gift a yearly
This long list of accomplishments
has inspired Linda Eisenbraun to
nominate both Michael and Marcia
as individual recipients as Good
Neighbors and generous givers.
Robert R. Young was raised on
the ranch where he and his family
live, and grew up knowing you had
to be a neighbor and work together
in order to survive on the plains of
Meade County. His wife is Susie,
and his children are Brenda, Robby
and Matthew.
His parents showed him by ex-
ample how to help and care for oth-
ers. There has never been a time
when Bob would not lend a helping
hand to a neighbor in need. In the
large electrical outages he would
volunteer his equipment and the
manpower to get the power back on
and running.
Bob has been a faithful and will-
ing helper involving church proj-
ects, and for the past three years he
has assumed the responsibility of
heating the Stoneville Church dur-
ing the winter months. When there
was snow, he also used his own
equipment to clear the parking lot.
Bob has been manager of the
Young Ranch for the past 12 years.
The ranch has been in the Young
family since 1908. Bob is the fourth
generation to hold that position.
Bob and Susie's boys are the fifth
generation to proudly work on the
family ranch.
Bob proudly served in the Na-
tional Guard of South Dakota for
eight years. He has also been an
active director of First Interstate
Bank for the past two years. Bob
has had an active part in the En-
ning Volunteer Fire Department
for the past 35 years, the last six
years as fire chief. Bob was a 4-H
leader for 18 years with the Junior
Stockgrowers and Busy Stitchers
4-H Club of Stoneville. Bob and
Susie held judging schools at their
ranch for five years. They also
served on the Meade County Ex-
tension Board for nine years.
I (Harold Delbridge) have
worked for this family and have
night-calved for them for 14 years.
I have always been welcome in
their home, as is anyone else who
happens to stop by. Robert Young
and his family are true neighbors.
Wayne Davis is lucky that he is
a big man, because he has such a
big heart. His heart would not fit in
a normal-size chest. Wayne is al-
ways willing to come to someone’s
aid if needed. Over the years he
has accumulated vast assortment
of tools and is always letting people
borrow them when needed. In my

A special meeting of the Philip
City Council was called for Mon-
day, April 22.
Jay Baxter, Philip site manager
with Cenex Harvest States’ Mid-
west Cooperatives, presented a
proposed plat and improvement
plans. Midwest is proposing to
build a fertilizer plant. What is
now E. Cherry Street would be
shifted over slightly for egress and
ingress traffic. “Traffic will in-
crease,” said Baxter.
Baxter said that the company
will help maintain the road sur-
face, including applying dust sup-
pressant two or three times per
year and when needed. A water
line will have to be moved to the
south and circled back around. A
sanitary sewer main will be hooked
into. There is a storm sewer line
that may have to be improved.
Baxter provided material safety
data sheets on five possible types of
fertilizer that could be produced at
the plant. Currently, Midwest han-
dles only three of the five. All five
are non-flammable. With a bigger
plant, Midwest will be able to han-
dle more if the market place has a
“There are explosives down
there,” said Baxter. “The grain ele-
vators is probably the biggest ex-
plosive thing there; gas and diesel.
And, we are regulated heavy by the
state. We had a federal audit and
we got an A plus.”
The council will be kept apprised
of further plat developments and
The next line of business for the
council was an update on the Philip
Trails project. In order to apply for
possible grants, the city has to be
involved. An estimate for an as-
phalt covered phase 1 trail that
would be approximately 6,400 lin-
eal feet would be over $319,000. An
estimate for concrete cover would
be over $453,000. Possible grants
would be a shared amount, with
the city responsible for designated
According to council member Tr-
isha Larson, the Philip Chamber of
Commerce will donate $20,000 to
the trails project. Referring to the
concrete option, “It’s better to do
something that you aren’t going to
have to maintain,” said Larson.
Mayor Mike Vetter said, “My con-
cern is, tight as our budget has
been, that the city may get an
amount that the city can’t match.”
Finance Officer Monna Van Lint
said, “If you can’t use it, you can re-
spectively decline the grant.”
The council approved Resolution
#2013-05, authorizing the city to
apply for a grant through the
South Dakota Game, Fish and
Parks’ South Dakota Recreational
Trails Program. The city will have
to match 20 percent of the project
costs via cash, and equipment
and/or labor. The council also ap-
proved Resolution #2013-06, au-
thorizing the city to apply for a
grant through the South Dakota
Department of Transportation’s
Transportation Alternative Pro-
gram (TAP) funding. Here, the city
would match just over 18 percent of
the project costs.
The city is looking into ease-
ments for the trail project, and if
donated use of equipment and vol-
unteer labor can count toward its
share of matching costs.
On the Wood Avenue and
Walden Avenue Improvements
Project, the council approved a
temporary construction access
easement with Michael and Tina
Noteboom. The area will be re-
seeded when the project is com-

D&T Auto Parts, Dale Morrison,
has withdrawn a building permit
application for a 40’x 368’ access
road across a drainage ditch. That
application has been replaced with
one for a 24’x 300’ access road
across the drainage ditch. This ap-
plication was tabled due to conflicts
with who has permitting rights
within the drainage area.
Other approved building permits
include Mitzi Boyd for an emer-
gency sewer line repair, Beau Rav-
ellette for a sewer line repair or re-
placement, Tena Slovek to demol-
ish a structure at 102 N. Stewart
Avenue, James and Betty Smith to
put in block steps, Josh Tatum to
put up a fence, and Rick and Selma
Thorson for a sidewalk replace-
Two special events applications
were approved. One was by the
Philip Chamber of Commerce for
Scotty Philip Days activities, June
14-16. The other was for the Philip
Volunteer Fire Department’s an-
nual demolition derby, June 15.
The city approved a plat of Lot
17-A, a subdivision of previously
platted Lots 17 & 18 of Outlot R –
where Marty Hansen plans to
move a house.
The city will be represented by
its mayor and one council member
on the joint governing board with
the school district for maintaining
the Memorial Field Park.
The council will look into any
possibilities for increasing water
availability at the Philip Airport.
particularly for use by commercial
aerial spraying companies.
The council established the
wage, including mileage, for Bran-
don Boyd, as an additional police
officer, for Friday, June 14, during
the Scotty Philip Days weekend.

League District 8 annual meeting
has been scheduled for Tuesday,
April 30, in Murdo.

Lookin’ Around by Syd Iwan
I’ve had to be on my best behav-
ior all week. We’ve had ministers
dropping by right and left. One
wants to give a good impression
and all that. This might include
keeping your clothes hung up in-
stead of draped around on the fur-
niture. Naturally, if you have any
whiskey bottles or poker chips
lying about you might want to put
those under cover. Actually, we
never have any whiskey bottles or
poker chips to worry about, but you
get the idea.
As a kid, I remember my mom
always hiding any decks of cards
that were visible when a certain
minister came to call. I’m not sure
if the reverend was against all
cards or maybe just gambling, but
Mom wasn’t taking any chances.
The folks were avid whist and
bridge players, and Dad played
many other games including crib-
bage, five-hundred etc. I couldn’t
see much wrong with those activi-
ties so hiding cards seemed a bit
odd to me.
I always chuckle when I think of
one local fellow who got a visit
from his priest. This guy’s normal
speech was liberally sprinkled with
swear words. He barely said any-
thing without adding some curses
for emphasis. Anyway, in the pres-
ence of the priest, he was barely
able to talk for fear of saying the
wrong thing. He got through the
visit by saying very little, but he
was fairly tongue-tied all through
it and he wasn’t a quiet man by na-
This is somewhat similar to see-
ing a police car when you’re out
driving. You just naturally slow
down whether or not you’re speed-
ing. You might even cast around in
your mind for any other possible
violations of law that might be no-
ticeable. In this area, we are some-
what prone to making U-turns in
the middle of Main Street in order
to park in front of a certain store
instead of across the street from it.
This is frowned on in some towns
so seeing a police cruiser might in-
spire us to drive around the block
so we can park where we want
without making a U-turn. One
local store has a parking lot across
from them so I have found myself
sometimes going into that lot,
turning around, and driving across
the street to park in front. I’m not
exactly sure if that is more law-
abiding than making a Uee, but I
do it anyway.
By one local town on the Inter-
state, experience has taught me
that the Highway Patrol likes to
sneakily park between lanes just
over one little knoll. That way, you
don’t see the patrol car until it is
too late to reduce speed if neces-
sary. It catches a lot of people un-
aware if you go by the speeding
tickets published in the paper from
time to time. Naturally, when I am
in that area, my speed is strictly
within the limit which it mostly is
anyway, but occasionally I’m going
a mile or two faster than what is
All of this behavior modification
is naturally geared to making a
good impression on someone or
other. We want them to think well
of us, and many women especially
want their houses shipshape be-
fore having visitors. I recall when
it was Mom’s turn to host Ladies
Aid (church women’s group,) she
would often enlist my help in vac-
uuming, dusting, washing win-
dows and the like. It was impor-
tant to her for things to look nice
so I didn’t object all that much to
helping, but I was also relieved
when it was over so I could go back
to not worrying about being ex-
tremely tidy all the time.
The best thing to do, obviously,
is to always live in such a way that
there is nothing objectionable in
your behavior or lifestyle to worry
about. Sometimes that is tricky, of
course, so we have to occasionally
make last minute corrections.
Better yet, just associate with
those people who like you as you
are and are somewhat blind to
your faults. They shouldn’t be com-
pletely blind since friends some-
times need to help you steer a bet-
ter course, but somewhat blind.
The other evening, our minister
asked if he could catch a ride back
to his home after a meeting at the
church since his wife needed their
car to take someone else home. I
said, “Sure. Just give me a minute
to clear out the beer cans.” Gary
just laughed and said, “I won’t
look.” That really is what is
needed. Friends who don’t look, or,
if they do, still think the best of you
and like you anyway.

Water warning ... by Del Bartels
For years as a young child I looked forward every summer to my fam-
ily spending many Saturdays at Roughlock Falls in Spearfish Canyon.
Then, my world was simpler, seemingly safer. The canyon and the cold
waters were still a best-kept secret of the Black Hills.
My dad would take life easy, usually napping on a blanket on the
grass under a tree, after a week of working at Homestake Gold Mine.
Mom would busy herself with reading, putting out the picnic, clearing
up the picnic, and expressing wonder at whatever my brother and I
brought back from our excursions. Those treasures would include snail
shells found at the creek’s edge, leaves with insect sacks still clinging
to them, old bird’s nests, fallen branches that had interesting knotholes
in them, and walking sticks that were carved by us beginning whit-
tlers. We wandered the creek and paths, climbed trees, and always
failed at talking ourselves into wading under the falls.
My parents were calm about our wanderings. I hated cold water,
thus I didn’t actually get in any that I couldn’t very easily step out of.
My brother would boldly do absolutely anything, but only if he could
talk me into doing it with him. Thus, we were relatively safe.
Often, extra caution came by way of an old man who warned us and
any other kids who might be there that the creek could sweep kids to-
ward the falls, and nobody wanted to go down the falls. Rocks hurt.
The grizzled guy had a knotty pine cane, wore a salt-and-pepper beard,
and peered from under the shadow of a dark, brimmed hat that wasn’t
quite a cowboy hat. I wouldn’t see him all day, but somehow his croak-
ing voice came to us from a picnic table, the steps to a walk bridge, or
a tree stump where he was sitting. His voice never surprised us, mak-
ing us jump or lose our balance as we stretched over the water playing.
It came calmly, but it always made me step back, eventually finding
some other interest and wonder than the water.
One summer, I was old enough, and brave enough, to actually
shadow some teenagers in wading under the falls. It was freezing, slip-
pery, and the semi-cave under the falls was depressingly dark except

I was chilled, bruised from falls, but had fun. It was anti-climatic,

One of the older teens overheard me tell my brother that we didn’t
have to be warned by that old man any more, we were big enough to go
under the falls. The boy asked me about the old man, then described
him exactly. He said that it was his grandfather, who had warned him
and all his older brothers, sisters, cousins of the water when they were
little. It seemed to be the old man’s mission in life. The boy said that
his grandfather had died about 10 years before.
The freezing water became even colder. I didn’t understand. I knew
the old man – heard him and seen him. But I was only 11 years old.

One time Wayne was talking to
a young couple and they were
wanting to build a deck onto their
house. The next morning Wayne
was there early to start the
process. This is typical of what
Wayne does for his neighbors.
Wayne is well known not just in
the Wall area, but also in the sur-
rounding communities. Having
worked for Golden West Telecom-
munciations for 34 years before re-
tiring, Wayne has made friends
wherever he has been. Wayne is al-
ways looking out for his neighbors.
If someone is gone for a while he
will check on their property to see
if everything is okay. I know if we
are gone, our place will be well
taken care of.
Wayne has been the Wall
Methodist Church's chair of the
trustee's committee twice. He is
currently serving in that position.
Both times a major project needed
to be done. Both times Wayne has
gone out into the community to
raise money for said projects. With-
out his leadership these projects
would not have been completed in
a timely fashion. Wayne is a stand-
ing member of the Wall United
Methodist men's organization
where he has helped in a variety of
different projects. You just know
that he is going to be there.
Wayne has also been the youth
leader for the Wall United
Methodist Church. He made sure
that in the winter months the
youth group would do something
special every four weeks. This in-
cluded things like going skiing in
the hills or swimming at Evans
Plunge in Hot Springs.
As I stated earlier, Wayne
worked for Golden West for 34
years. He is now retired along with
his wife, Gwen. During his tenure
at GWTC Wayne attended count-
less seminars and classes to stay
current with the ever-changing and
expanding technologies that are at
the forefront of the telecommunica-
tion industry.
Wayne has been involved with
many different organizations. Most
of them involved the youth, but not
all. Here is a list of some of those
groups: Cub Scout leader, Webelos
leader, Boy Scout leader, Girls
Scout helper, 4-H helper, youth
wrestling, youth softball, youth
rodeo. He brought back the South
Dakota Rodeo Association Rodeo to
the Wall Celebration after years of
not having a rodeo. He held the po-
sitions of president, vice president
and secretary of the Wall Rodeo As-
Wayne is one of those individuals
who makes a community successful
and progressing in a positive direc-
tion. The Wall community, as well
as those surrounding communities,
are far better off for having Wayne
and his big heart a part of them.

fuel/oil storage regulations
The May 10, 2013, deadline for
the EPA Spill Prevention Control
and Containment (SPCC) regula-
tion is rapidly approaching. Facil-
ities that have capacity to store
more than 1320 gallons of diesel,
fuel oil, gasoline, crop oil, used oil,
and/or animal fat in 55 gallon con-
tainers or larger need to complete
a SPCC plan and install secondary
containment for these containers.
Producers who have total storage
of less than 10,000 gallons can self-
certify or employ a professional en-
gineer to complete their plan and
design their secondary contain-
ment system. Those with storage
of 10,000 gallons or more must
hire a professional engineer.
If you have storage capacity for
more than 1320 gallons of petro-
leum products, and do not have
secondary containment for those
containers in place, it is not likely
that you will be able to do so by the
May 10 deadline. It is recom-
mended that you proceed as soon
as possible to install secondary
containment, but in the meantime,
go ahead and complete an SPCC
If you choose to self-certify, you
can download a Tier 1 Qualified
Facility SPCC Plan Template from
the EPA website: www.epa.gov/
p.htm. A Tier 1 facility must meet
the following criteria: total above-
ground oil storage capacity of
10,000 U.S. gallons or less, no
aboveground oil storage containers
with capacity greater than 5,000
U.S. gallons, and no discharges of
oil in the three years before the
SPCC plan is certified involving a
single discharge greater than
1,000 gallons or two discharges of
oil each greater than 42 gallons
within any 12-month period.
If your facility has total oil stor-
age capacity of less than 10,000
gallons and either have a storage
container with a capacity greater
than 5,000 gallons or have had one
or more discharges of oil as out-
lined above, it is classified as a
Tier 2 facility and must comply
with those criteria. Tier 2 report-
ing requirements and procedures
are outlined at: www.epa.gov/
Your SPCC plan does not need
to be sent to anyone, but must be
complete, updated if you make
changes to your oil storage facility,
maintained in terms of scheduled
inspections, and on file, readily ac-
cessible if an inspector asks for it.
Storage containers with a capacity
of 55 gallons or more must be in-
cluded in the total storage capac-
ity, even if they are not being used.
Storage containers can be taken
out of service if specific procedures
are carried out. This can be helpful
for operations that no longer use
these containers, and may allow
them to drop to the Tier 2 category
and not need to hire a professional
engineer, qualify as a Tier 1 facil-
ity if putting a 5,000 gallon tank
out of service, or even drop below
the 1,320 capacity level and not
need to complete an SPCC plan.

South Dakota hay prices have
been at high levels throughout the
2012 marketing year. Based on
numbers from the National Agri-
cultural Statistics Service, March
alfalfa prices were at $230 per ton
and have remained steady for sev-
eral months. The March price for
other hay reached a record high of
$170 per ton.
“Usually, such high prices result
in a shift in production and use.
However, other commodity prices
and input costs are higher too,”
said Matthew Diersen, South
Dakota State University Extension
risk/business management special-
ist. He added that looking at this
year's hay prices by adjusting for
inflation shows that prices are also
at record-high levels on a real
“Despite a price index, with 1982
as the base year that has doubled
in recent years, the real price of
hay in South Dakota had not been
above $70 per ton during the past
decade,” Diersen said.
The last peak in real prices hap-
pened in the 2002 drought year
when the price reached $79 per
ton. Diersen said 2013’s record
rates are due to in 2012, South
Dakota producers had expected to
harvest 3.5 million acres of hay;
and higher expected returns for
other crops and drought conditions
combined to reduce harvested acres
to only 3.1 million acres. To top
that off, yields were low, limiting
supply. “The result was that price
increased to the high nominal lev-
els and a real price of $100 per
ton,” he said.
Price prospects continue to favor
sellers over buyers. “Fall disap-
pearance was unusually large leav-
ing a stocks level on Decemer 1,
2012, of only 4.3 million tons. The
stocks level was the smallest since
January 1, 1977, following the
1976 drought,” Diersen said.
He said current stocks are also
similar to the levels in late 1989
when there were only 3.35 million
head of cattle in South Dakota in-
ventories. On January 1, 2013,
there were 3.85 million head.
Diersen said modeling historic
stock levels and winter use gives
competing views of just how little
hay may be left in South Dakota.
“Usually, much of the hay produced
in South Dakota is used for feed
and not sold. As part of the collec-
tive feed inventory, one could take
the December 1 stocks and use
them evenly over the remaining six
months of the feeding year,”
Diersen said.
He shared an example: on May 1
only one-sixth of the December 1
4.3 million tons in inventory may
remain, or only 0.72 million tons.
“Most years, producers try to main-
tain a surplus over that level. Like-
wise, high prices may mean some
hay that was raised for on-farm use
enters the marketing channel,” he
said. “Factoring in the high price
level actually forecasts a negative
stocks level for May 1.”
The high real price would nor-
mally result in sharply higher hay
acres in South Dakota. Solid ex-
pected returns for other crops and
the presence of revenue insurance
have limited hay to an expected 3.1
million acres. Diersen said a tight
old crop supply, low expected pro-
duction for 2013 and no difference
in the national picture combine to
suggest high hay prices will con-
tinue for the 2013 marketing year.
Tight hay supplies and high prices to continue
The South Dakota Senior Health
Information and Insurance Educa-
tion program is currently seeking
volunteers for all aspects of the
SHIINE program.
One of the primary functions of a
SHIINE volunteer is to help sen-
iors with their Medicare questions.
Volunteers receive training on all
parts of Medicare and learn how to
provide one-on-one Medicare coun-
seling. Volunteer counselors are
vital to the program, as they pro-
vide opportunities for seniors to
discuss their Medicare questions
and concerns in person. All services
are unbiased and confidential.
Although volunteers are most ac-
tive during Part D (prescription
drug) open enrollment in the
months of October, November and
December, they are needed year-
round. If becoming a volunteer
counselor is not for you, please talk
to your regional SHIINE coordina-
tor about other ways to contribute
your time and talents.
Training includes all parts of
Medicare, how to counsel people in-
dividually, how to provide refer-
rals, and how to navigate the
Medicare website and plan finder
Volunteer counselors should be
comfortable using computers, the
Internet, and meeting with individ-
uals in public locations, such as li-
braries or senior centers. Volun-
teers can choose the hours they
would like to provide services. A
SHIINE volunteer may not hold a
current license to sell Medicare re-
lated health insurance.

Court, Addie Rorvig had company
at breakfast, her grandson, Noah
Lorensen of Rapid City.
We had individual peach yogurt
for breakfast. Thanks, very special.
And we had cinnamon rolls, so I
had to have half a cup of coffee!
Mildred Young was out with her
daughter, Carol Nielson and they
went to meet Joyce Wheeler for
lunch. Joyce had missed Mildred’s
birthday party at Somerset Court a
couple weeks ago, on account of
driving conditions.
My daughter, Carol Vogan, Col-
orado Springs, emailed that the
tumbleweeds, brought in by the
terrific winds, are so bulky that
they need a special crusher. I be-
lieve my son, David Hansen, Ft.
Pierre, could make such an imple-
ment. Are these tumbleweeds the
thistles that make expensive this-
tle seed that people buy for their
bird feeders?
Carol is also moving her chives to
make room for a rock area, and she
said she is sending money to the
Somerset Court beauty shop to get
my hair fixed! Thank you, Carol.
The April 11, 2013, Philip Pio-
neer Review arrived on Saturday
and I read it pretty much cover to
cover. I found a word that I had
never heard of, vernalization. And
I guessed that it must mean that
the seed, wheat in this case, needs
a certain amount of time in the
ground in cold enough conditions to
sprout properly. Faithful google
told me that was about right.
Sunday, April 14, Stella Hicks
stopped by and said that she likes
to play cards. She likes the game of
“George” and “3-13.” I told her to
come on over and show us how.
Elmae Helfenstein said she would
like to do crosswords, so I said we
should take the Monday Rapid City
Journal crossword and do it to-
gether. (Way to go Vivian. You are
a good friend. – Betty)
Stella Hicks had a visit from her
daughter, Linda Phipps, who came
along to church. Irene McKnight
has a bad cough and did not come
to church. She has a vaporizer and
finds some relief with that. We
hope she will soon be feeling better.
My son, Wayne, phoned at one
p.m. and said that he had caught
two fine fish, (now I forgot if they
were bass or trout) and he would
try to phone M.R. Hansen and Bar-
bie and ask them over for supper
and they could bring me along. If
they aren’t around, he would come
over to Somerset Court for supper
and bring along my income tax
which he had kindly done for me,
so I can sign and write a check.
Thank you, Wayne.
My daughter, Carol Vogan, Col-
orado Springs, is still under the in-

otic that night.
The April 18, 2013, Philip Pio-
neer Review arrived on Friday. It
had all the main local news. One
item I could relate to was Jessica
Wheeler’s third grade class and
their study of a cow’s eye. The
Philip meat locker donated the
cow’s eye. It is a wonderful lesson
to read print through the lens in a
cow’s eye. When I taught at the
Shoun School over by New Under-
wood, my pupils and I took a hike
out in a neighborhood pasture, and
dug out a cow’s eye from a carcass.
We took it to school and studied it
and read print through it.
I liked Mary Eide’s story about
an old neighbor, John Cowen. John
lived a couple of miles north of
Philip and he used to go by with his
team and wagon on his way town.
He would strip the wagon to its
running gears, the better to bring
back posts, boards, wire and five-
gallon cans. He lived in a party un-
derground home. His sister was al-
ways after him to have a nice
house, so she built him a little con-
crete block building. By and by, she
took him back to Iowa to live with
her. One time, Virgil invited John
Cowen in to have a bath in our
bath tub. We could hear him
splashing and singing in the bath-
The West Central Electric maga-
zine carried a list of upcoming
events. Among them were the
Shrine Circus, May 3-5, at the
Rushmore Plaza Civic Center in
Rapid City. Somerset Court will
take residents to this event if they
wish to go. The circus is free. If you
want snacks or souvenirs, you
must bring your own money.
Another item that I noticed on
the list is May 12, 2013, from 1-4
p.m. at an art gallery’s Mother’s
Day open house. This is an outdoor
event, so weather permitting. The
iron work there is unique.

As I looked out the window, the
green grass is really coming to life.
Robins dot the backyard, inter-
spersed with meadowlarks, maybe
they are the early birds that will
get the worms. The little finches
are busy rebuilding their nests, one
in the wreath on the garage and
one where they took over a swallow
nest over our light. Last year, even
with the heat, they hatched three
batches of babies. Then came snow
Sunday night, where do the birds
seek refuge.
A hearty congratulations is in
order for Marcia and Michael West
who were featured in the Rapid
City Journal Sunday, April 21, for
all the wonderful things they do
now that they are “retired,” being
good neighbors. Keep up the good
work you two.
The annual jamboree and honors
banquet is July 26-27, 2013, in
Pierre at a convention center with
bowling at the lanes in Pierre. If
you want to attend be sure to check
it out and get signed up.
Monday, our area, along with the
rest of the nation, had their focus
on the tragedy at the Boston
Marathon with the bombings.
Man’s inhumanity to man, loss of
life and loss of the life many knew.
It will be a long recovery for those
injured. Also, the tragedy in Texas
with the fertilizer plant explosion.
Monday, Bill and I were in Rapid
City for appointments. We had a
little time to spare so we bowled
three games after lunch. I still
have a little advantage over Bill
and beat him at his own game. I’d
better enjoy it while I can, he’s get-
ting better every time he bowls.
Don and Vi Moody stayed around
the ranch the greater part of the
week and got everything taken
care of before the forecasted
weather change. Moisture is al-
ways welcome.
Tony Harty made the usual trip
for mail and had lunch out Mon-
day, then visited by phone with
family and friends.
Tuesday morning, Bill and I
stopped by Dan Smiley’s shop to
check out the big door he has been
crafting. It is going to be quite a
masterpiece when done. I had a
trip for the Haakon County Prairie
Transportation to Philip and had a
little time so visited Berdyn Par-
sons briefly, and did other errands
around town. Bill was up to his
usual playing cards and bowled in
the evening. I rode over with Wen-
dell Buxcel and kept score, riding
home with Bill. It was beginning to
snow when we were on the way
Tuesday, Tony Harty got his
mail, then went to Philip to get
supplies. He also went to the sale
barn and visited with folks who
came and went. On the way home,
he ventured off the highway and
caught Don and Vi Moody at their
home. They had an enjoyable after-
noon of visiting about memories
back when Vi and her mom,
Shirley, and Tony’s mom, Mar-
garet, and Tony met at Ranchers
Bible Camp in the Black Hills near
Nemo. Tony and Vi shared some
stories about his sister and Vi's sis-
ter who went to St. Martin's Acad-
emy at Sturgis back in the early
1960s and several of the local girls
would carpool from Kadoka Junc-
tion on weekends to Sturgis. That
saved the parents a lot of travel
Wednesday, we awoke to wet
snow. Steve Varner picked up a ve-
hicle and took it to Philip for some
work. I visited Les and Muree
Struble in the afternoon as well as
stopping by the nursing home and
visited Ruth Klundt and Emma
Jarl. About five o’clock I gathered
the eggs and milked the cow, (in
other words, went to the grocery
store). That evening, I visited Bon-
nie Riggins at her apartment and
she shared some desert with us.
Cathy Fiedler reported that in
the Sturgis area they have also had
snow, fog and the temperature was
in the 30s the better part of the
week. The moisture has been great,
but I’m so ready for some sun and
warm weather.
Speaking of weather, for so many
months the news media had gone
on about the drought all across the
nation. Grain prices jumped
around at each report. Now, “plant-
ing is delayed” due to flooding in
the Midwest. Farmers don’t know
if they will be able to plant the
corn, soybeans and spring crops
planned due to all the rain, snow
and flooding.
Thursday, John Kramer with
West River/Lyman – Jones Rural
Water stopped by to visit with me
about some work. Tony Harty came
by in the afternoon and we engaged
in the game of farkel. I was the
winner this time, but the word puz-
zle he took hands down. Phyllis
Word also stopped for a visit.
Class of 1963 is getting closer
now to letting everyone know about
their reunion taking place June 15
and 16. Be sure and send emails
and/or Facebook to remind every-
one about the reunion. If there are
questions please call Nancy Ek-
strum or Vi Moody as they are
planning a parade entry for Satur-
day morning and reunion gather-
ing Saturday night at the golf club-
house. They are planning for a
great celebration and fun time to
reunite during Scotty Philip Days!
This will be 50 years.
Don and Vi Moody went to their
Rapid Valley home Thursday after-
noon since they had appointments
in Rapid City Friday. They stayed
throughout the weekend to finish
up more appointments the first of
next week.
Doug Frein helped George Git-
tings get some cattle moved out of
the corrals Friday.
Bill and I were on the road again
for appointments in Rapid Friday.
We met Zack Seager, Cori Barber
and little Ryder for lunch. We en-
joyed the company of a gal who
needed a ride back to her work in
Wanblee, so a co-op ride was some-
thing worked out and we took
Highway 44 home.
Rich and Donna Perez, Rapid
City, visited George and Sandee
Gittings Saturday afternoon.
Saturday, Cathy Fiedler rode to
Rapid with Sherry Hanson and
Elsie, who had eye appointments.
Ralph worked at the store, then he
and Cathy went out for supper.
Saturday, after getting the mail,
Tony Harty went out for breakfast,
then escaped to the Herber ranch
down on the White River. The river
is running quite full, but dams are
still suffering from the need of run-
off. He visited with his brother,
Bernard, and Barbara and family.
Their son, Matt, and family were
visiting from Dell Rapids, so he en-
joyed them. The men were busy
sorting cattle.
Don and Vi Moody ventured off
to Deadwood for a steak dinner
Saturday afternoon and ran into
friends, Bruce and Bonita Weber,
who were in a slot tournament.
They also enjoyed a brief visit with
Kathy Willuweit at the place where
she works. Kathy loves to "hug" her
Philip friends when they are in
town so makes fun for all!
Bright and early Saturday morn-
ing I was on the road to Pierre,
picking up Lee and Roberta
Vaughan on the way through
Philip. We attended the South
Dakota Wing Civil Air Patrol con-
ference. The roads were good on
the way home, a bit of snow going.
We picked up Lee Vaughan, Sr.,
and we all had supper out before
returning home.
“Nothing will be accomplished if
all possible objections must first be
overcome.” Main Street Memories
George Gittings and Kurt
Gustafson went to Henry Hanson's
Sunday afternoon to get some cat-
tle cake.
There was rain during the night
and Sunday morning the rain
gauges showed 6/10s. Not too sure
if that was melted snow included,
but now we know it can rain too. A
call from cousin John Fairchild in
the afternoon was enjoyed. In Vir-
ginia Beach, they are keeping busy
with yard work and such. He said
to tell all Aunt Pearl’s bridge play-
ers hello. Bill and I went out for
supper and got home before snow
Sunday, Tony Harty attended
church and had dinner out.

There is no charge.
(continued from last week)
I think we have been fortunate
when you hear the news and prob-
lems east of here in the Sioux Falls
area. Also south of us with all the bad
storms they have been having.
The weather has given the ranch-
ers a hard time this last week. They
have worked hard with their live-
stock around here. It was every two
hours to be up and checking on them.
Then they lost a couple even when
they watched them close. Wet snow
and wind chilled the baby calves
down fast. I heard others had the
same problems that Marvin and
Vicki did.
Donnie and Justin Poss were up
and helped Marvin one day this week
with a cow that needed doctoring.
One thing you can not say is that
those men and women don’t earn
their pay when fall comes and they
sell those calves. There is a lot of
hard work and sleepless nights and
days put into them plus the work of
getting them ready for market the
rest of the year. But they like the job
of being their own boss and living in
the country, even if you hear a mum-
ble every once in a while, “I should
sell the whole bunch and do some-
thing else.” Especially on days like
this past week. Better be careful
guys, someone might hear you and
offer to take you up on it. Selling out,
that is.
Some many have been having the
flu with the bad cold and congestion.
It seems to take up to three weeks to
get rid of it and some have had the
misfortune of catching it twice. I
know I had a three-week siege with
it and that was a stay home thing, as
I did not want to pass it on to anyone
else. I stayed away from the nursing
home and other places and just went
where it was absolutely necessary.
Pastor Al called and told me that
Mike Seager is doing a program on a
disk on the camping through the
years. I should gather up my old
slides so he can have them too. Then
Pastor Al wondered if I saw Mae Kef-
felers picture in the paper as she was
celebrating her 100th birthday. What
a lady. She helped us at camp up at
the De Kings ranch near Plainview.
De’s wife was her daughter and she
had two grandchildren in the camp.
Memories we all cherish from those
days. A kid from Interior who was at
camp was mad at Mae for scolding
him about something he had done, so
he spiked her coffee with wintergreen
chewing tobacco. Of course, she did
not drink it as you could smell the
snuff a mile away.
Last Saturday, I went to town to
get a headlight fixed and while I was
there Don Burns gave my pickup a
look over and found some things that
needed attention right away or some
damage may have occurred. So I was
to bring my vehicle in Wednesday,
but due to the storm, had to postpone
it till this Wednesday, March 17. It
will work out good for me as I will be
able to attend the luncheon at the
senior center.
As I did not have news for last
week, I will add this about Ann
Moses. I really enjoyed her 80th
birthday party and got to see all of
her kids. I am sure she had a wonder-
ful time visiting and enjoying her
family while they were here. There
was a large crowd of friends and fam-
ily in attendance to enjoy the beauti-
ful cakes and lunch served by her
While there, I visited Shar Moses
and she said that Joan was with their
dad, Clark Morrison. She stated that
Clark would be there till the end of
April. His address was in the paper
and he enjoys mail, so get busy and
send greetings off to him.
I remember the first time I saw
Ann Moses, she was driving a station
wagon in Philip and it was full of
kids. I couldn’t help but think what a
bunch of kids to raise. But you know
what, her and Gay did raise them.
They were all raised in Philip and all
graduated from Philip High School.
Some are still living in Philip and
others have ventured out to other
places, all doing well for themselves.
I have known Ann for a long time and
worked with her at Philip Health
Services for several years. Ann is six
months older than me. I feel I have
been blessed to have known her all
these years.
Beth Smith did not get to work due
to the storm, but said that most
places were closed in Rapid City
along with hers. She said that it was
nice to just be home and catch up on
things. Lee Schoniger and some
friends enjoyed dancing in Rapid City
Saturday night, April 13. He had din-
ner at Mel and Beth’s Sunday, April
14. She said they went up to the
grand march in Wall and Beth said
how nice the boys and their dates
looked, referring to Cade Kjerstad,
Ridge Sandal and Brayden Fitch. She
said the boys reported having a great
time. Those cousins usually do when
they all get together.
Herb Sieler said they were home
and calving heifers out and had to
pull some. They had some loss during
the storm, as many others did. Herb
was at a conference in Mandan, N.D.
When he came home, he found the
highways all blowed off, but it took
him over an hour to get home from
Philip, to his place about three and a
half miles north of the Grindstone
My sister-in-law, Max’s wife who
lives in Santa Barbara, Calif., called
and stated that they have had some
bad winds there. Due to lay offs and
housing problems, their son and
daughter have moved back in with
her. Her son who was one of the en-
gineers on the space crafts lost his job
when they closed the space program.
He was unable to find a job, as they
told him he was over qualified, so he
finally did what his dad told him
growing up, learn to work a common
job and use your hands. Those big
jobs and educated people may not
have a job someday and you have to
know how to work with your hands.
It took awhile and he was persistent
and finally got a job driving the city
buses for Santa Barbara. He said it
pays good and he is doing fine and he
and his sister are sharing expenses
with their mom. Joy stated this has
happened to a lot of people in Califor-
nia the past few years with people
losing their homes and jobs and mov-
ing back home with family.
She said she was thankful she had
a large home with an apartment in
the lower level and with them being
there, no one feels crowded. And it is
good for her also, as she is 86 years
old and totally blind now. She was
partially blind all her life and was a
model for a big clothing designer
when Max married her. They lived in
Tucson, Ariz., for years after Max
was discharged from the service. He
went to work for the telephone com-
pany and worked his way up in the
company and then was transferred to
Santa Barbara to a very good job,
which he worked at till he retired.
Joy worked for the Santa Barbara In-
stitution for the Blind till retiring at
72 years of age.
Seems that no one had any news
due to the storm, so I will bring this
to a close and hope everyone gets
back to normal. The weather doesn’t
sound like that will be possible for
some time with more moisture fore-
cast and below normal temperatures.
I am finishing this late Sunday night
and the wind is blowing and it is cold
outside and the cattle all wanted to
come in and get behind the wind-
breaks. It will be another long night
for those calving.
Every heart that has a beat,
strongly and cheerfully has left a
hopeful impulse behind in the world,
and bettered the tradition of
mankind. – Robert Louis Stevenson

June Wanczyk, age 85 of Wall,
S.D., died Saturday, April 20, 2013,
at the Hans P. Peterson Memorial
Hospital in Philip.
June Ailene Weller was born
June 6, 1927, at Arriba, Colo., the
daughter of Leonard “Bill” and
Stella (Anderson) Weller. She grew
up and received her education in
Arriba, graduating from Arriba
High School in May 1945. She at-
tended Bonnie Beauty School in
Denver, graduating in November
She met her husband to be in
Denver and was married to Joseph
L. Wanczyk on June 10, 1947, at
Sacred Heart Catholic Church in
Denver. A son, Gerard, was born to
this union on December 3, 1954.
The family moved to Philip in May
1957 to manage the Senechal Hotel
with her father, L.G. Weller, who
owned it. In July 1962, he passed
away so they bought the hotel from
the estate.
June later found that her heart
was not in beauty work, so after
talking with her family, decided to
go back to nursing school at the age
of 43. In 1969, June began nursing
school at Presentation College in
Aberdeen. June made it home often
during college, or the family would
travel to Aberdeen to see each
other. In May 1973, June gradu-
ated from nursing school, the same
week that their son graduated from
Philip High School.
June worked as a nurse for 30
years, retiring at the age of 78.
June and Joe worked at Sacred
Heart Parish and were always glad
when they could help. June and Joe
later moved to Wall, and became
members of St. Patrick’s Catholic
Church of Wall.
Survivors include her husband,
Joe Wanczyk, Wall; her son, Ger-
ard “Jerry” Wanczyk and his wife,
Colleen, Glenview, Ill.; a grandson,
Jordan Wanczyk, Milwaukee, Wis.;
a sister, Shirley Josserand and her
husband, Orville, Kadoka; two
brothers, Harold D. Weller and his
wife, Clara Belle, Kadoka, and

Weller and Marjorie Borbely; and
two brothers, Duane and Robert

We’ve got moisture! Isn’t it won-
derful? Waking up to lots of snow
on the deck, we got the ruler out to
measure that snow. We had five
and a half inches of very wet snow
and it was still coming down. This
moisture is truly an answer to
prayer! We’ve had more snow this
month of April then we had all win-
ter. The snowbirds will be thinking
they should have waited a month
to come back to South Dakota. A
while back, I asked Sophie (Larson)
Foley if she had any news. “No,
news” she said, “Just busy doing up
yard work!” She and her husband,
Pat, and her son, Todd Larson,
Sioux Falls, had cleared the winter
debris and fertilized the lawn. The
good news, this was done before the
start of all this moisture. Won’t be
long and it will be time to get out
the lawn mower, Sophie. What’s
that, “don’t rush things?” That’s
called taking it a day at a time.
Jerry and I were in Pierre one
day last week, as he had a dental
appointment. We met a nice couple
at the dentist office, Blaine and
Beverly Kenobbie, of the Presho
area. When they learned we were
from Midland, they told of some
folks they know from this area.
Blaine mentioned a book he had
just finished reading and had much
enjoyed by a Midland author. It
was “Gumbo Lilies” by Thelma
(Martin) Anderson. From there we
got to visiting about Thelma and
her unusual wit and sense of
humor. That wit and sense of
humor was felt throughout her
book.We also talked of Thelma’s
friend, Leona (Lee) Schroader.
Thelma (Timmie) Martin and
Leona had purchased the home-
stead of Charlie and Tena Myr-
land. Tena was a sister to Thelma’s
mom, Dena Martin. Thelma and
Leona liked horses and worked
hard to keep that place. In later
years, Thelma married Curt An-
derson and Leona married Ervin
(Babe) Nesheim. I went to the
bookcase and got out our copy of
“Gumbo Lilies.” Looking at some of
the pictures and reading the names
of folks who Thelma wrote about in
her book, it brought back memories
of those people who have passed
away. Having an interest in writ-
ing, I used to seek Thelma out, ask-
ing questions concerning writing.
She had good common sense advice
and because of her I learned of this
writing course you could take on
the Internet. She had taken it her-
self and was satisfied with what
she learned. Another one of those
good memories!
Guess it’s time to get at the
news for this week!
Reminder: The Midland Auxil-
iary members are asked to bring
finger foods during the three per-

Maxine Jones went to Rapid
City last Friday for a checkup after
a spinal injection earlier in the
month and got a good report. Hope
they continue to work for you, Max-
The ice skating club in Rapid
City had their ice show to demon-
strate student’s progress for the
year. Maxine reports it was great
fun to watch, with about 55 people
on ice skates for the finale. Grand-
daughters of Shorty and Maxine
Jones and Bob and Verona Evans,
Cassie and Kalli Jones, were
among the performers. All students
were in small groups of similar
abilities performing various rou-
tines to music with a theme. Then,
Cassie and Kalli skated as a duo,
as did a few other sibling groups.
Ages ranged from about three
years to adults.
I received the following from
Maxine Jones.
Richard Howard "Dick" Young,
Jr., age 75, Unicoi, Tenn., passed
away unexpectedly Tuesday after-
noon, April 9, 2013, at Johnson
City Medical Center. He was born
in Miami, Fla., a son of the late
Richard Howard and Gwendolyn
Jones Young.
He retired in 1996 from CSX
Railroad as assistant vice presi-
dent of transportation after 49
years in the railroad business. Fol-
lowing retirement, he and his wife
moved to Unicoi County. Dick was
a member of Wildwood Masonic
Lodge #92 A&FM and the Shriner's
Temple in Jacksonville, Fla.
Other than his parents, he was
preceded in death by his brothers,
Tom Young and Harry Young. He
is survived by his loving and de-
voted wife of 31 years, Rebecca
"Becky" Blanton Young; four
daughters, Renee and Reverend
Jed Scheneck, Flagstaff, Ariz.,
Kathleen Young Jeswald (Jon),
Walnut Creek, Calif., Grace Wall
(Scott), Virginia City, Va., and
Tracy Matthews, Johnson City,
Tenn.; 15 grandchildren, four
great-grandchildren, one sister,
Joyce Wildes (Don), Flowery
Branch, Ga., and several nieces
and nephews.
Graveside services were held
April 13, 2013, at the Oak Grove
United Methodist Cemetery, Ellen-
boro, N.C., with Reverend Jed
Schenck officiating. Cliffside Ma-
sonic Lodge #460 A&FM provided
last rites at the graveside.
Music reflecting Dick’s life was
played: "I've Been Working On The
Railroad." and "I Love" by Tom T.
Hall, as well as "How Great Thou
Art" and "Amazing Grace."
Many in the Midland area, espe-
cially those who lived on the west
side of town, will recall when the
Young family moved to Midland
when Dick, Sr., bought the light
plant in the 1940s. He continued
the business until selling to the
REA in the 1950s. The three boys
missed Midland desperately after
they retured to Florida, to the ex-
tent that Harry tried to hitchhike
back when he was about 12 years
old, and later was found by his par-
ents trying to buy a plane ticket to
get 'home' to Midland. Harry and
Tom are buried at Midland, their
favorite 'home' town.
Dick returned to Midland and
worked on the CNR railroad extra
crew, and ended his career as an
assistant vice president, a career
he most likely enjoyed every day of,
and continued his interest in all
things 'railroad' to the end of his
life. It is doubtful they ever drove
by a railroad facility in all their
travels without stopping to have a
closer look. He was also interested
in old or unusual barns, and has
books of photographs of them taken
in their travels.
Two of his daughters, Grace and
Kathleen, and their children vis-
ited Midland briefly a couple of
years ago, due to hearing so much
about it from their dad. That was a
good, 'green' year, so it looked very
pretty here, and at the cemetery
where their uncles are buried. The
Jones ranch was of great interest to
the young grandsons.
Dick was in the class that grad-
uated MHS about 1956 and re-
turned for many of the reunions in
later years. He lived next door to
Joneses and his mother had many
friends on that street, from Edna
Joy near main street, Kochs, Jones,
Sammons, Quatiers, on up to Ida
Hunt 'on the hill' to the north. Mid-
land always held a very special
place in his heart, in no small part
due to those good neighbors and
their families. Our sympathies to
the family of Dick Young.
Keith Hunt, Christine (Hunt)
Niedan and Teresa (Hunt) Palmer,
Murdo, went to the fundraiser for
Allen Geuther at the Youth Center
in Ft. Pierre Saturday. Roger and
Peg (Hunt) Johnson, Pierre, were
also there. Allen is married to
Jenny, the daughter of Paul and
JoAnn Bork. Allen has been deal-
ing with cancer and friends wished
to do this event to help with med-
ical expenses. There was a silent
auction, live auction, supper and a
dance. A huge crowd was there to
show their support for Allen, Jenny
and their family. Paul and JoAnn,
their daughter, Shelby, and friend,
Gavin Snook, Angie and David An-
derson and family, Loveland, Colo.,
Kimberly and Luke Nelson and
family, Aberdeen, were there.
Danny Bork was the only one of the
kids unable to make it. He lives in
Knoxville, Tenn. Angie and David
will be moving to Tucson, Ariz. Our
prayers are with Allen and his fam-
ily, prayers that the cancer treat-
ments will do what the doctors are
hopeful it will.
Ernie and Laurel Nemec re-
turned April 1 to Midland after
spending three months in Mesa,
Ariz. They enjoyed their time there
and had some Midland area visi-
tors during their stay at Mesa. On
their way home, they stopped in
Colorado City, Colo., to visit Bob
and Doris Sheeley. They attended
Easter Sunday service with them
and joined part of their family for
dinner in Colorado Springs, Colo.
Later that day, they stopped in
Denver, Colo., to visit Bev Johnson.
Their daughter, Becky and Rob
Thompson and Josiah, Sioux Falls,
came for a visit the weekend of
April 6.
Chauncey Trapp escorted
Valentina Diolaiti, a foreign ex-
change student from Italy, to the T.
F. Riggs High School prom Satur-
day. The theme for this year’s prom
was “Masquerade.” Following the
prom, they attended the post prom
at the bowling alley. Some of the
activities at post prom were a hyp-
notist, bowling, billiards, a hunting
simulator, twister, and card games.
Mike, Debbie, and Cassidy Trapp
attended the grand march at the
prom. Valentina stated they do not
have proms at high schools in Italy.
Gene Jones left on April 9 going
to home of his daughter, Linda and
Brendan Giltner’s in Meriden,
Kan., spending a couple of nights,
hoping to watch track meets. They
were canceled due to weather.
Linda went with her dad to Texas
where they enjoyed visiting with
various cousins and also attended
the annual barn dance held at one
of the cousins. They returned to
Linda's Monday and after attend-
ing Taylor's track meet Monday
and Triston's Tuesday, Gene re-
turned home Wednesday. Audrey
was unable to go because of prior
commitments, three of which were
postponed due to weather.
Bad river Club
April 5, 2013, it was good to be
able to get together again. Due to
weather conditions and other cir-
cumstances, we were unable to
meet in March. Only two mem-
bers, Emily Sammons and Janice
Bierle were able to meet at the
home of Kathy Tolton in February.
We were saddened to learn of
the death of our longtime member
and friend, Edna Joy, but were
pleasantly surprised to have our
other longtime member and friend,
Maxine Stirling, with us again. Her
daughter, Cherie Soesbe, brought
her from Rapid City. They had
been at the ranch to pick up some
things she will need when she
moves into her apartment in Rapid
City. She will be able to have her
companion (her little dog) with her
in her new home. Speaking of pets,
we had a good laugh when we
shared stories of our pet’s crazy an-
Janice Bierle was our April
hostess. Others who were able to
enjoy the afternoon were Betty
Sinkey, Isabelle Sampson, Kathy
Tolton, Wilma Saucerman and
Verona Evans, who had just re-
turned from visiting Arizona. Our
other special guest was Cindy
Koehler who we hope will become a
new member. Emily Sammons
could not be with us. Everyone is
concerned about our dry conditions.
Our prayers are that the good Lord
will send us a good old fashioned
soaking! It was fun to get together
to visit and enjoy Janice’s home-
made cranberry cookies and a vari-
ety of Schwan’s ice cream. Try the
black cherry. It is “yummy. Wilma
will host the May meeting.
Club Reporter, Isabelle Sampson
It is Tuesday, the sun is shining
and the temperature was 10˚ when
we woke up this morning. A bit
chilly for April, but we got some
great moisture, and warmer days
are ahead. The birds and baby
calves will be happy about that. We
humans will like it a bit warmer as
Our daughter-in-law, Stephanie
Nemec, called last night as they
were headed back to Mitchell after
and Stephanie’s birthday which is
May 4. Thanks to modern technol-
ogy you can do Skype, send pic-
tures and videos over the Internet,
but it’s not like holding that grand-
baby in your arms. So, Barbara

As I close my column for an-
other week, I leave you with a bit
of humor from Jerry’s Amish mag-
azine. A four-year-old was playing
quietly while her father, asleep on
the davenport, snored lustily. Sud-
denly he turned over on his side
and the snoring came to an abrupt
end. “Mommy” exclaimed the little
girl, “you’d better see about Daddy.
He’s killed his engine.” Have a
good day and a good week! And
Lord, we do thank you for this
picking up her mom at the Sioux
Falls airport. Barbara’s flight was
one of three that were able to take
flight. Due to flight issues, some
flights were canceled. Stephanie
and Barbara were so relieved hers
wasn’t one of them. We heard some
of it on the news this morning.
Stephanie’s grandmother had
planned to come, but circum-
stances prevented her from making
the trip. Her grandmother was so
very disappointed. As some of
know, Barbara Von Oorschot is
from Kevelaer, Germany, this is
where Stephanie grew up. Little
Laura is their only grandchild.
This is Barbara’s third trip to see
that grandbaby. Josef came with
Barbara in November. She planned
this trip so she would be here for

Greetings from sunny, cool, snow
covered northeast Haakon County.
What a surprise to wake up Mon-
day morning to a deep covering of
snow, piling up more and more
until about noon. When I shoveled
off the driveway, I found out there
was a lot of moisture in that snow –
.54” of moisture to be exact, accord-
ing to our weather data collector,
Marge Briggs. That brings us to a
total of 2.4” of moisture since April
8 – hallelujah! I hope the moisture
will continue, with some warm
sunny days thrown in there, of
course. We are supposed to have
temperatures in the 70s this week-
end, so the grass should really
jump out of the ground.
The snow made for difficult
travel conditions early yesterday.
Several folks had trouble navigat-
ing our roads because of the deep
snow. School was called off at Deep
Creek School because of the snow.
I plodded to the barn to feed calves
and cats, and I was glad there was
a tire track to walk in! During the
day, the snow shrunk quite a bit,
but there is still deep snow in my
yard. I guess I won't be hanging
any clothes on the line for a day or
Nels and Dorothy Paulson were
in Pierre Friday to take care of
some business. Dorothy attended
church Sunday, and she served
lunch following the church service.
She said there was a good crowd on
hand for worshiping and visiting,
and young Kyler Gabriel kept
everyone entertained. Monday's
snowstorm kept Dorothy in the
house – she said the snow was
deeper than her boots are tall!
Aside from checking and feeding
the cattle, Nels continues to stay
busy with his picture puzzles and
stamp collecting activities.
Dick and Gene Hudson were in
Chamberlain Wednesday to keep a
doctor's appointment. Gene said
she has been spending a lot of time
in the house, because the weather
hasn't been conducive to doing yard
work. Grandsons Noah and Avery
spent time with Dick and Gene
over the weekend, so Gene did a lot
of cooking.
Lola Roseth attended the nurs-
ing home fundraiser in Kadoka
Saturday evening. It was a tour of
tables event followed by a delicious
meal, and Lola said the tables were
beautiful. Lola's great-niece,
Mikayla, (granddaughter of her sis-
ter, Gay Tollefson) was among
those providing musical entertain-
ment for the group. It sounds like
Mikayla is quite a talented musi-
cian! She will be going to China in
late May, and one of the highlights
of the trip will be performing on the
Great Wall. What an adventure!
Billy and Arlyne Markwed were
in the Glad Valley area last Thurs-
day, helping with an auction sale
there. Saturday, they went to
Rapid City to meet their daughter,
Kim, at the airport. They had lunch
in Rapid, joined by Bruce and
Cindy Bresee, then returned to the
ranch. They attended church Sun-
day, and grandson T.J. Gabriel and
family were supper guests that
evening. Monday, Billy and Arlyne
and Kim headed to Pierre. The
snow was deep, but they made it.
Kim went on to Aberdeen to visit
for a few days, and Billy and Arlyne
attended a retirement dinner. Billy
was the guest of honor, as he was
retiring as a member of the South
Dakota Animal Industry Board.
Thank you for your many years of
service, Billy!
Coreen Roseth said the snow and
cold has kept her from making
much news. It hasn't kept her from
spring cleaning, however. She re-
cently painted her bedroom, and
when I talked to her yesterday she
was painting her dining room! Way
to go, Coreen!
Bill and Polly Bruce had a visit
last Thursday from their nephew,
Todd Ryan. Todd is the son of
Polly's sister, Christine, and her
husband, Gary Ryan, of North
Dakota. Todd lives in Nebraska,
and he had taken his daughter,
Amanda, to Minot where she has
employment. They visited and had
an early supper, as Todd had to
continue on his trip back to Ne-
braska. Saturday, they had a visit
from their daughter, Marcia Simon.
Marcia had spent the day shopping
in Pierre, and she was on her way
back to her home near Eagle Butte.
Sunday, Bill and Polly attended
church in Eagle Butte.
Ruth Neuhauser had a visit this
week from her granddaughter,
Tara Nachtigall. Tara lives in New
York City, and she works in the-
ater. She and five others have been
touring the country for the past
several months, and they came to
Highmore last Thursday evening
and entertained at the nursing
home Friday. Ruth said they did
several musical numbers and the
residents thoroughly enjoyed the
show. Tara's parents, Lynn and
Nina Nachtigall, were also there, as
were Kevin and Mary Neuhauser.
The tour has taken the group to the
southwestern part of the country
and up the West Coast, and they
loved seeing the Black Hills. From
Highmore, the musical group
headed to Minnesota to continue
their tour. Lynn and Nina left Fri-
day also, spending the night in
Custer with Nina's cousin on the
way back to their home in
Cheyenne, Wyo.
Kevin and Mary Neuhauser en-
joyed the entertainment in High-
more Friday. Mary spent the week-
end at the ranch.
Ray and Nancy Neuhauser have
been keeping busy with senior cen-
ter activities, card playing, exercise
group, etc. Nancy's daughter,
Kathy, spent three weeks with Ray
and Nancy while she recovered
from shoulder surgery, and Nancy's
granddaughter spent 10 days with
them over spring break. While in
Pierre, the granddaughter worked
with a local horse trainer, honing
barrel racing skills for her and her
Steve McDaniel is now back in
the community after spending 40
days in Arizona this winter. He said
it was wonderful, and he hopes to
do it again next year. There is a lot
of roping activity in that area, and
he was able to rope all but four of
the 40 days he was there! Sounds
like heaven for a roper! But it is
back to reality now, and he is very
busy with calving activities.
Clark and Carmen Alleman at-
tended a birthday party for grand-
daughter Alivya Saturday. Happy
birthday, Alivya! Kelly (Alleman)
Nelson and daughter Morgan spent
the weekend at the ranch and also
attended the party. Clark and Car-
men were hoping to head for Rapid
City later Monday to be on hand for
Clark's cataract surgery Tuesday
Frank and Shirley Halligan had
supper in Midland Friday evening.
Shirley said they needed to get
away from all the bad news on TV!
One of their employees, Ernestino,
returned to South Dakota Monday.
He had been in Mexico since No-
Mary Briggs worked in Pierre all
last week. Saturday morning, she
went to Pierre for parts. In the af-
ternoon, Lee and Mary headed to
Sturgis to be on hand to take pic-

tures of their grandson, Seth Joens,
at his prom. Mary said both the
guys and the gals looked great –
sort of a rite of passage for high
school kids. Lee and Mary returned
to the ranch Saturday night. Sun-
day, they traveled to Dupree to
visit Mary's sister and brother-in-
law, Sue and Vernon Starr. Mon-
day morning, Mary hit the road, in-
tending to go to work, but the deep
snow made her turn around and
work from home.
Max and Joyce Jones had an
overnight guest Friday. Their
friend, Nadine Fiddler, Spearfish,
spent the night with them. Satur-
day, Joyce and Nadine traveled to
Flandreau to a funeral. Joyce said
the trip home was difficult because
of bad weather conditions – blow-
ing snow, ice, fog. Thankfully, the
roads started improving as they got
close to Pierre.
Jon and Connie Johnson were in
Wheaton, Minn., over the weekend
to attend funeral services for the
son of Jon's cousin. The young man
died at the age of 33 after a very
brief illness. He leaves a wife and a
five-month-old son. Jon and Connie
returned home Sunday. Their son,
Avery, is a member of the Philip
High School golf team, but weather
this spring has caused most (if not
all) of the matches to be canceled.
Avery was to be inducted into Na-
tional Honor Society Monday
evening, but that event was post-
poned also!
Randy had several neighbors in
for an evening of card playing last
week. Friday, Randy and I headed
to the Black Hills to attend a con-
cert by one of Randy's favorite
recording artists, Johnny Rivers.
My cousin, Barb Swenson, and her
husband, John, joined us for sup-
per, as did our daughter, Chelsea,
and her husband, Mike. Barb and
John also joined us at the concert.
Johnny Rivers has produced some
wonderful music over the years,
and he is still quite an entertainer,
although he is no spring chicken
anymore. (I guess that could be said
for a lot of us.) Saturday, Randy
and I had lunch with son Scott and
family in Spearfish. We visited
most of the afternoon before return-
ing to the ranch Saturday evening.
This week, I am grateful once
again for the moisture. There are
some situations in life that you can
remedy yourself – car broken? Get
it fixed. Equipment need updated?
Start shopping. But when there are
such devastating drought condi-
tions, there is not much you can do
but wait and pray. We can decrease
the livestock numbers, we can put
in water lines to make sure the re-
maining livestock have water, but
we can't make it rain. So, thank
God for the moisture! And I intend
to keep praying for more! This
drought is still a long way from
being over.
Enjoy your week! And start
stretching those muscles – it will
soon to time to start mowing, till-
ing, painting, and all those other
spring time activities!

A correction in the story about
John Cowen, I stated that his
house was used for cattle feed. This
is not true as the cattle feed was
stored in a schoolhouse that is on
the property instead of the house.
Bev McDaniel called me Wednes-
day morning after the storm to
share the beauty she was privi-
leged to see. She said that the
robins use her place as a stop when
they migrate as they like the trees
and the berries they can feed on.
Bev said that there were hundreds
of robins out on the fresh snow and
in among them was this little bril-
liant bluebird that stood out. She
said she just loved watching them.
I don’t know much about bluebirds,
but wonder if he could have lost his
mate and just got in with the
robins for protection to get where
he was going. Mother Nature has a
way of protecting its creatures and
gets them where they are supposed
to be.
I did not call for news this week
as everyone had their hands full
getting things back together after
the storm. Some of the stories
around this area related that they
had lost some calves. Some jumped
into the tire tanks and chilled to
death, others wandered into water
holes, and some, that were laying
down all during the storm, did not
eat and when they did get up and
take on a feed, they died of overeat-
ing. Some stated that they lost
cows that got on their backs over a
drift. My, what else can they do to
kill themselves!
I remember one time during
calving season, a cow went out in
the middle of the dam and stood
there and dropped her calf in the
water and of course he drowned. I
ended up milking that cow all sum-
mer and she was a very gentle cow
and gave lots of milk. But, Kenneth
was so mad he said he should have
shot her. Of course he didn’t. They
kill themselves fast enough with-
out shooting them and you try
awful hard to save them.
After everyone got things back
together this week, many went to
town Saturday night just to relax a
little and enjoy hearing how every-
one else was doing. Sometimes you
just have to get away from it all for
a little while so you have enough
energy to start over again.
Good news is that it is to warm
up to near 60˚ by this weekend. We
may get some spring weather after
Marvin, Vicki and Mary Eide

After the service, we all enjoyed

services and the ladies take turns

This will end the news for this
week and last week’s news will be
continued so will make for lots of
news. We have had trouble with
the storms, but we still need more
moisture and it can come in some
warm rains if we could order what
we want, but there is someone big-
ger than we are who will decide
that when the time is right. He
knows what is best for us. Remem-
ber we don’t know why. We just
have to pray and leave it up to
Him. Only He knows what is best
for us. Sometimes when everything
is going great, we often forget to
give praise and thanks.
Touch the earth, love the earth,
her plains, her valleys, her hills, her
seas; rest your spirit in her solitary
places. – Henery Beston

Mrs. Guy Ramsey had a thrilling
experience Monday afternoon
while alone at her home just west
of town. The unusually loud bark-
ing of the Ramsey’s white collie
dog, Laddie, attracted Mrs. Ram-
sey’s attendtion to the tree just
north of the house where she was
surprised to see a strange looking
animal, two thirds as large as the
dog hanging from the limb of the
tree. She hastily procured a shot
gun and shot at him from the win-
dow, hitting him and knocking him
to the ground. As the gun had only
one shot, she was obliged to hunt
another and in the meantime the
animal which is believed to have
been a cougar or mountain lion
from the description, made his get
away. His tracks in the wet ground
were easily discernable but nothing
more has been seen of the animal.
Warning to parents: It is the cus-
tom of the children of the town to
swing on the rope which is at-
tached to the flag pole, on the
water tank hill. This is a dangerous
paractice due to the fact that the
iron pole has been in use there for
more than twelve years and is
badly rusted which may cause it to
break at any time when subjected
to this weight. – Wm. Burns, City

With the completion of all the
South Dakota High School Activi-
ties Association winter fine arts
and athletic activities, the
SDHSAA has announced that 485
teams have received the Academic
Achievement Team Awards for the
2012-2013 winter season.
All varsity groups and teams
that achieve a combined grade
point average of 3.0 or higher are
eligible to receive the award.
Philip High School has six
groups and teams that have earned
this award – the band solo/ensem-
ble, wrestling team, girls’ basket-
ball team, boys’ basketball team,
one-act play and vocal solo/ensem-
ble group.
This award program was de-
signed to recognize varsity athletic
teams and fine arts groups for their
academic excellence. The SDHSAA
believes that high school students
learn in two distinct ways; inside
the classroom and outside the
classroom – on the stage and/or the
athletic field. The program creates
a positive environment for school
teams to have their members excel
in the classroom, motivates stu-
dents toward academic excellence
and promotes academic encourage-
ment from teammates.
Based on a duplicated count,
over 29,789 students participate in
interscholastic athletics and over
28,613 more are involved in fine
arts activities. The award program
proves students can be overwhelm-
ingly successful in both academics
as wall as in athletic and fine arts

Badlands National Park and
Minuteman Missile National His-
toric Site will celebrate National
Park Week, April 20-28. Fee free
days will be offered at Badlands, a
fee park, beginning on Earth Day,
Monday, April 22, and extending
through Friday, April 26.
Come visit us at our Badlands
Ben Reifel Visitor Center, open
from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily,
and at Minuteman Missile’s Visitor
Center, open 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.,
Monday – Friday, and 9:00 a.m. –
4:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
Enjoy the vastness of the south-
western South Dakota scenery -
soaring spires and pinnacles
amidst the pristine beauty of the
prairie. A visit to both the North
and South Units of the Badlands
can also inspire a greater appreci-
ation of this landscape’s cultural
histories. Next door, explore the
role of the Midwest in America’s
Cold War history at the Minute-
man Missile by visiting the Delta 9
missile silo and Delta-1 Launch
Control Center.
Explore some of the outdoor fea-
tures at Badlands in your own cel-
ebration of Earth Day. The Castle
Trail, ten-miles round trip offers
expansive views, and a relatively
level walk. Cliff Shelf Trail is a
moderately strenuous loop that fol-
lows boardwalks and climbs stairs
through a juniper forest perched
along the Badlands Wall. The Win-
dow Trail is a 0.25 mile trail lead-
ing to a natural window in the Bad-
lands Wall with a view of an intri-
cately eroded canyon. There is
truly a walking route for everyone
at Badlands, so get out there and
take a hike.
Minuteman Missile offers daily
tours of its Delta-1 Launch Control
Center at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
Missile silo Delta-9 (I-90, Exit 116)
is also open to the public daily from
8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Tour tickets
for Delta-1 are given out on a first
come, first served basis by coming
to the visitor center in Cactus Flat,
off I-90 at Exit 131.
Badlands will be hosting Artists-
in-Residence Jessica Bryant and
Judy Thompson. The artists have
been working with students on wa-
tercolors, and the role art has
played in the history and develop-
ment of our National Parks. The
park is also featuring a video from
former teacher-ranger Larry
McAfee. This reflection on Larry's

The annual FFA and Family, Career and Community Leaders of America labor auction was held Tuesday, April 16, at the
Philip Livestock Auction. A free sloppy joe feed started the event. For eight hours of labor to be determined by the winning
FFA/FCCLA annual labor auction
bidder, there were over 70 students
auctioned off. Attendance is a mem-
bership requirement for both FFA and
FCCLA, and some students belong to
both organizations. The FFA advisor is
Doug Hauk and the FCCLA advisor is
Brigitte Brucklacher. Brucklacher said
that the total raised was over $7,100.
“We had a good turnout despite the
weather! It was great to see the sup-
port of the community and parents of
the FFA and FCCLA members! This al-
most 50 year tradition wouldn't be the
success it is without the continuous
dedication of the Philip Livestock Auc-
tion, its employees and the auction-
eers,” said Brucklacher. Shown above

The City of Faith will use an
$800,000 grant to build a multi-use
community safe room that can
serve as a public shelter against se-
vere storms.
The funding comes through the
Hazard Mitigation Grant program,
a 75/25 percent federal-to-local
match program, according to Nicole
Prince, hazard mitigation officer
for the South Dakota Office of
Emergency Management.
“The federal share is through
FEMA (Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency), and while this
multi-purpose room may be used as
a gym and cafeteria for the Faith
school, it will be designed to offer
what is called ‘near absolute pro-
tection’ to occupants during ex-
treme wind storms and tornadoes,’’
Prince said.
The city’s application for the
grant said that Faith typically ex-
periences at least two extreme
wind events a year. In the past 30
years, those storms have caused 40
reported injuries and more than $8
million in property and crop dam-
age. In the summer of 2006, two ex-
treme wind storms downed trees,
knocked out power and caused
more than $250,000 in damage in
In the past, citizens in the area
took shelter at the school during
major storms. That structure was
condemned in 2004 and later torn
down, leaving area residents with-
out a public shelter. The new safe
room will have an occupancy rating
of 875 people.

Stephanie Marie Williams___________
Stephanie Marie Williams, age
37, of Wall, died Tuesday, April 23,
2013, at the Sanford USD Medical
Center in Sioux Falls.
Survivors include her husband
Marty Williams of Wall; two chil-
dren Stran and Jaicee Williams;
her parents Greg and Vicki Ander-
sen of Arlington; two sisters Shiela
Schmidt and her husband Terry of
DeSmet, and Shari Knutsen and
her husband Jesse of Omaha, Ne-
braska; and a host of other rela-
tives and friends.
Funeral services are pending
with the Rush Funeral Chapel of
South Dakota animal rabies
cases were up in 2012, climbing for
the second straight year, according
to the yearly surveillance report re-
cently released by the Department
of Health. There were 60 animal
rabies cases in 2012, up from 40
the year before.
While animal rabies is reported
every year, the disease tends to be
cyclical, with years of high case
numbers followed by years with
lower numbers, noted Dr. Lon
Kightlinger, state epidemiologist
for the Department of Health. “Ra-
bies is a risk every year in South
Dakota and that risk is statewide,”
said Kightlinger. “Rabies vaccina-
tion is readily available, inexpen-
sive and important to protect your
pets and the people around them.”
In 2012, there were rabies detec-
tions in 29 South Dakota counties.
Those rabies positives included 21
domestic animals – 16 cattle, three
horses, two cats – as well as 36
skunks and three bats. South
Dakota’s last human rabies case
was reported in 1970.
The 16 rabid cattle in 2012 was
the highest number of cases in 15
years for South Dakota, and higher
than any state in the country.
Beef and dairy cattle are usually
exposed to rabies through bites
from skunks. People can, in turn,
be exposed by contact with the cat-
tle’s saliva. Dr. Russ Daly, state
public health veterinarian, noted
that signs of rabies in cattle can be
very vague and may start as subtle
behavior changes and progress to
salivation, abnormal bellowing,
persistent heat cycles and incoordi-
nation. Contact a veterinarian
right away if you suspect rabies in
an animal, and avoid contact with
the saliva of that animal.
“Rabies vaccine is available for
cattle but routine vaccination of
cattle herds isn’t practical,” said
Daly. “However, show animals and
others that have a lot of human
contact should be vaccinated for ra-
bies starting in the spring. The vac-
cine for cattle is good for one year
and has a 21 day withdrawal pe-
In addition to vaccinating pets
and other animals with frequent
human contact, reduce the risk of
rabies with these precautions:
•Do not handle, adopt or attempt
to feed wild animals. Teach chil-
dren to avoid animals they don't
know and to tell you immediately if
they are bitten or scratched by any
•Avoid any animal, wild or do-
mestic, that behaves strangely, and
immediately report it to your local
veterinarian, animal control, con-
servation or law enforcement office.
•Do not handle dead, sick or in-
jured animals. If you must, use
heavy gloves, sticks or other tools
to avoid direct contact. Farmers
and ranchers should wear gloves
and protective eyewear when treat-
ing sick animals to prevent expo-
sure to saliva.
•Close outdoor trash containers
tightly to avoid attracting skunks
and raccoons.
•Clear wood or junk piles from
homes to deter wild animals from
moving in.
•Do not handle bats. If bats are
found in a room with small chil-
dren or sleeping people, call the De-
partment of Health, your physician
or local animal control officer.
If you suspect rabies in a wild
animal, pet or livestock – or if your
animal has been bitten by a possi-
bly rabid animal – contact your vet-
erinarian immediately. If you have
a potential exposure to rabies,
wash the affected area with soap
and water right away and call your
doctor or the Department of Health
at 1-800-592-1861. Your veterinar-
ian will instruct you as to handling
of animals involved. If the animal
is dead, save the carcass for labora-
tory testing, being careful not to
damage the head. If the animal is
alive, contact your local animal
control authorities so it can be cap-
tured for examination or observa-
tion. If you are bitten or scratched
by a rabid animal, rabies vaccina-
tion can prevent human disease.
