Jim Stangle,
Milesville, has
been named by
the South
Dakota Veteri-
nary Medical As-
sociation as
Veterinarian of
the Year.
At the
SDVMA’s 122nd
annual conven-
tion, held in
Sioux Falls,
Sunday through
Wednesday, Au-
gust 11-14,
Stangle was
given statewide
recognition by
other veterinari-
ans for his dedi-
cation to the
The announce-
ment was a sur-
prise to Stangle.
His wife, Linda,
knew in ad-
vance, since she
had been re-
quested by the
association to
send in his biog-
raphy. Stangle
gave a short ac-
ceptance speech,
stating that re-
ceiving the
award from his
colleagues was
quite an honor.
The SDVMA has
almost 400
members. The
veterinarians from across the
state voted on the veterinarian of
the year from a list sent to them
by the nomination committee. L.
Stangle related that one of the
association voters told her he had
voted for J. Stangle the last four
This award is made annually to
a SDVMA member who has con-
tributed significantly to the vet-
erinary profession and to the
animals and clients he/she
serves. The award recognizes a
member for service and accom-
plishments benefitting the pro-
fession of veterinary medicine.
According to the biography
read at the convention, “Dr. Stan-
gle knew he wanted to be an ani-
mal doctor at the age of six.
When he told his mother he
wanted to be an animal doctor,
she said, ‘Oh, you want to be a
veterinarian.’ He said, ‘No! I
want to be an animal doctor!’ ”
Stangle grew up in western
South Dakota. After earning his
doctorate of veterinary medicine
from Colorado State University
in 1989, he returned to western
South Dakota to practice. He
started his own clinic in 1996,
added a satellite clinic in 1998,
and hired an associate in 1999.
His practice covers mainly large
When South Dakota experi-
enced a trichomoniasis outbreak,
Stangle designed a power point
presentation on detection, treat-
ment and prevention, which he
presented at several meetings in
South Dakota, Nebraska and
Stangle has sponsored numer-
ous veterinary
and vet tech
students doing
their intern-
ships. He is a
sponsor of FFA
and 4-H. He
loves to teach
and share his
knowledge. One
attribute of
Stangle’s inter-
est and dedica-
tion to the
veterinary field,
which was acci-
dentally left out
of the biogra-

No. 52, Vol. 107
United States Representative
Kristi Noem (R-SD) has an-
nounced that Brad Otten of her
Rapid City office will hold a con-
stituent outreach day in Philip
on Wednesday, August 28.
Otten will be available on
Wednesday between the hours
of 1:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. at
Lucky Strike Bowling Alley.
“As South Dakota’s lone mem-
ber of the U.S. House of Repre-
sentatives, I believe it is very
important for me and my staff
to meet with South Dakotans to
hear about the issues important
to them. It is my hope that indi-
viduals needing help with a fed-
eral agency or simply wishing to
pass on their concerns to me
will stop by,” said Noem.
Aside from this opportunity,
Otten also plans on visiting
with community leaders in the
region. Area residents are in-
vited to contact Noem’s Rapid
City office at 605-791-4673 if
you would like to set up an ap-
pointment or if you need imme-
diate assistance. If you are
unable to find time to come to
Philip on Wednesday, August
28, you can always reach

Haakon County’s provisional budget was approved by the Haakon
County Board of Commissioners at a special meeting, August 13.
Auditor Patsy Freeman walked the board through revenues from 2012
and midway through 2013. “One thing you don’t want to do is over esti-
mate your revenue. It over inflates your budget,” she said.
Freeman informed the board of errors in the bank franchise payments
that went back to the mid-1970s. She stated that those overpayments
were miscalculated one year and then successive years were based off
that miscalculation. “We can’t recoup those overpayments, but can cor-
rect it with this year’s,” she said.
Freeman said she had the Department of Legislative Audit review the
information. Ray Smith, president of the First National Bank was also
informed of the situation and was given copies of the papers.
In the approved provisional budget the deputy register of deeds and
emergency management director positions stay at half time each week
and the librarian position at just about three-quarters time. All employ-
ees will receive a $500 salary increase along with insurance changes.
In discussing salaries, Freeman noted by South Dakota Codified Law
the commissioners are to receive at least $4,896 per commissioner per
year. She noted that they now receive $6,768 per year. Commissioner
Nick Konst noted that since the board had agreed to go on a salary basis,
it included the special meetings and the board was not suppose to re-
ceive an extra $90 for those meetings.
In regards to insurance the county’s share for 2013 is approximately
$90,500, or about $7,540 each month. Chairman Steve Clements asked
if they should estimate $150,000 for this next year. With the new health
care act being implemented the board is unsure of costs for insurance.
The commissioners also discussed the possibility of allocating a set
amount of money that the employees could put toward the purchase of
their own insurance without county involvement.
Clements also asked about establishing a capital outlay account to re-
serve funds for a future sheriff’s vehicle. The board approved to estab-
lish the fund and place$10,000 in it.
Konst noted that while the opt out monies have helped the county sur-
vive the swap monies from state Department of Transportation has al-
lowed them to do extra.
The board’s next regular meeting is Tuesday, September 3 at 1:00

Midwest finalizes spill clean-up
Clean-up is complete for the vandalism-caused chemical spill of 500 gallons of Durango herbicide on March
25 at Midwest Cooperative in Philip. The dirt, rock and concrete chunks were immediately excavated from
below the storm sewer near the Highway 73 bridge. None of the contaminant reached the Bad River. The
previous rip-rap has now been replaced with large pink boulders, called classy rip-rap. “All done. That was
the last thing we had to do,” said Philip site manager Jay Baxter. “All interested government departments
have signed off and are very pleased with the way Cenex Harvest States has handled this incident.” Baxter
added that the company wanted to leave the area better than it was before, thus the 2,000 to 2,500 pound
pink boulders. “They’re pretty cool rocks,” said Baxter. One was donated to the Senechal Park for decora-
tion. “We still don’t know what happened, but we appreciate the interest that we received over this, because
it brought better understanding for us and the public how to try to keep something like this from happening
again,” said Baxter. Diffierent storage procedures for the shuttle containers are being looked into, and other
precautions are being taken that no accidental release will happen again.

During its Monday, August 19, meeting, the Haakon School District
27-1 Board of Education wrapped up remaining necessities in prepara-
tion for the 2013-2014 school year.
The board officially declared Cory Lambley as the new secondary prin-
cipal and half-time athletic director. Ralph Kroetch, Jr., is again the
cross country coach. Sayde Slovek is the junior high volleyball coach.
Travis DeJong is the junior high football coach.
Four more students have been approved for open enrollment from out
of the school district. These include a first, sixth, seventh and ninth
grade students. Since they were enrolled before the first day of classes
and the first day of fall sports, they are immediately eligible for extracur-
ricular activities. Home school applications for ninth and 10th grade stu-
dents were received.
Graduation date for seniors has already be set for Saturday, May 17.
“I know that it sounds very far out, but some parents want to know now,”
said Superintendent Keven Morehart.
Morehart reported that test scores from last year, the South Dakota
Report Card, resulted in Philip High School receiving an 87.65 score,
putting it in the status category. The Haakon junior high received an
85.55 score and the Haakon elementary received an 81.91 score, put-
ting both in the progressing category.
Morehart has initiated to have all elementary classrooms hold at
least 10 minutes of flashcard time per day. A student’s speed with the
basic tables should allow them to more quickly finish more complex
problems. “They are going to know the facts,” stated Morehart. During
discussion, board member Jake Fitzgerald said, “There are a lot of kids
who just don’t have simple division and multiplication memorized.”
There are 21 students out for high school football. This low number
is because of fewer boys in high school and fewer have elected to go
out for football. Because of the low numbers, there might not be any
junior varsity football games scheduled this season. Students are being
encouraged to join the sport.
Morehart believed that volleyball and cross county are running
about average in participants.
Physical preparations for the school year include concrete having been
poured in the driveway area at the west side of the Fine Arts Building.
The kitchen has had a new stove installed. The family and consumer sci-
ence classroom has new computers, through a Perkins Reserve Program
grant obtained by instructor Brigitte Brucklacher.
Claims payable August 19 include over $44,820 from the general
fund, over $77,747 from capital outlay, $7,647 from special education,
and over $432 from food service. Reimbursements include $60 for drug
testing and over $390 for cell phone usage. Hourly wages for the month
of July total over $12,774 for the equivalent of 1,184.5 hours worked.
The next scheduled board of education meeting will be at 7:00 p.m.,
Monday, September 16, in room A-1 of the Philip High School.

The Wood Avenue and Walden
Avenue utility and resurfacing
project is going well. After put-
ting down blacktop on the south
end, the contractor has been
backfilling black dirt behind the
curb and preparing street surfac-
ing on the north end for concrete
According to the city's engineer,
Jeff McCormick with SPN, the
work is ahead of the November 1
completion date. He said that the
street is basically open to resi-
dents. The contractor will still be
completing concrete driveways,
sidewalks and seeding for the
next few weeks, so public use is
not recommended at theis time.
The actual completion date can
change due to construction and
weather variables.

Lookin’ Around by Syd Iwan
I like to think that my walk is
purposeful. In other words, if you
see me going down the street, you
might think I am off to accomplish
something useful. I might actually
be headed somewhere to goof off,
of course, but by my walk you
might think I had honorable in-
tentions. At times I may saunter
and at other times hurry, but pur-
poseful is my aim.
How we walk does send some
signals. For example, the other
day I saw a lady trudge down the
alley with a bag of garbage. She
plunked the bag in the alley
garbage can and then plodded
back towards the house. I diag-
nosed that she’d had a long day
and was tired. She might also
have been a bit depressed.
Contrast that with son Chance
when he was little and getting up
from a nap. He’d wake up bouncy
and come zipping into the family
room. It was common for him to
twirl himself around a couple of
times in the process. This often
meant he was ready to go and
looking for action. A bit later, you
might think he was watching TV
in the living room only to glance
out the window and see him danc-
ing down the ridgepole of the
barn. Kids are like that – con-
stantly looking for adventure.
They’re more fun to watch,
though, if they belong to someone
else, and you aren’t responsible
for keeping them out of trouble.
Some people seem to always
have a spring in their step. There
was a guy in my high-school class
who did. It was some extra motion
of the foot that did it, but I was
never quite sure why or how it
happened. That was just the way
he moved and, I think, still is.
Age has some bearing on the
speed at which we travel, as you
know. Go to a nursing home and
you’re apt to see some shuffling
and a limp or two. Go to a school
and you’re apt to see the opposite-
-quite a bit more action. I’ve no-
ticed, however, that some older
people keep moving right along
and some young ones are slow so
age does not always determine
our rate of motion.
Then we come to length of
stride. My mom was taught that
“ladies take small steps” so she
did – always. This made it a bit
tedious to walk anywhere with
her even though she might try to
take her small steps quickly. My
sister, on the other hand, was
having none of that nonsense. She
wanted to get where she was
going and not worry about being
ladylike all the time. The ladies of
mom’s era also had lots of other
rules that seemed fairly silly to
the next generation. Mom had
fashion rules too such as never
wear white before a certain date
in the spring and that hats and
gloves were required at certain
functions. These are restrictive
rules and no longer of much use
as far as I can tell.
Our way of walking must tell
quite a bit about us since we seem
to have lots of words that describe
motion. Who can forget John Tra-
volta in the movie, Saturday
Night Fever? After he’d worked
hard and done a good job in a
dance competition, he said he had
to go strut. Next you see him
strutting down the street to a
jazzy soundtrack and feeling quite
pleased with himself. His smile
and his stride say it all.
Come to think of it, young cow-
boys tend to strut as well. It must
be something about the hat, boots,
spurs, and chaps along with the
cowboy tradition that brings it
out. It quite often amuses me, and
I enjoy watching it. I guess if you
can manage a horse, work cattle,
and gallop across the prairie with-
out falling off, you have some-
thing to be fairly proud of.
If you’ve ever been in a march-
ing band or in any branch of the
military, you probably have some
experience with marching. That
too is purposeful locomotion al-
though somewhat tiring in the
long term. We Navy guys never
had to march very much after
basic training since ships aren’t
conducive to it. There might be
room enough to march on the
flight deck of a carrier, but
smaller ships have very few large
clear areas. That’s okay. I wasn’t
a big fan of marching anyway.
Neither am I fond of promenading
which speaks of refinement and
such. Swaggering is okay on occa-
sion as is wandering, rambling,
meandering, moseying, ambling
and strolling.
By the way, if you’re feeling a
bit down sometime, it is good ther-
apy to get out and strut or swag-
ger across the prairie or down the
street. The exercise is therapeutic
as well. Give it a shot sometime
and see if it isn’t so.
Incidentally and symbolically
speaking, leading a purposeful life
isn’t a bad idea either. Accom-
plishing useful stuff can give us a
sense of self worth. Watch out,
though. It might make you strut
or swagger, and then what will
people say?

Country Praises by Del Bartels
The day’s temperatures broke
100 degrees, so why had the public
swimming pool closed the day be-
fore for the season? It had nothing
to do with the weather or the pool.
High school lifeguards were start-
ing fall school sports and college
lifeguards were traveling to their
campuses. Some lifeguards and
pool patrons were off for a last
family vacation before summer
Like in a chess game, a move
may not have a direct attack or
defense factor, but it allows other
pieces and factors to come into
play. Like in some mystery novels,
seemingly unassociated details
can lead to the solution. Like in
life, sometimes my brain adds up
two and two to get only three. For
example, when a cooking recipe
calls for four tablespoons of water,
are those level or heaping table-
spoons? When some people are
told to turn left – no, your other
left. Then there is the all too com-
mon, “Turn left.” “You said turn
left, right?” “Right.”
We’ve all heard of the laborer
who takes a wheelbarrow of sand
through security, which cannot
find what he is supposedly smug-
gling in the sand, and it turns out
he stole the wheelbarrow.
It is laughable when two sepa-
rate thoughts are accidentally
joined. “Ladies, don't miss the
rummage sale. It's a chance to get
rid of those things not worth keep-
ing around the house. Bring your
husbands.” “Bean supper Tuesday
evening. Music to follow.” “New
choir robes are needed due to the
addition of several new members
and to the deterioration of some
older ones.” “The ladies of the
group have cast off clothing of
every kind and can be seen in the
basement on Friday afternoon.”
“Low Self Esteem Support Group
will meet Thursday at 7:00 p.m.
Please use the back door.” “The or-
ganization’s new fundraising cam-
paign slogan is ‘I Upped My
Pledge – Up Yours.’ ” “The eighth
graders will perform ‘Hamlet’ by
Shakespeare on Friday at 7:00
p.m. The public is invited to at-
tend this tragedy.” “Don’t let fi-
nancial worries kill you off – let us
I like comical insults that some
people just don’t get, or when they
finally do it’s far too late for a
come back. “As a hunter, you
couldn’t track a train.” “If you
can’t spell IQ, then perhaps you
shouldn’t take the test.” “Sorry,
but in a battle of wits, I don’t fight
unarmed people.” “Have you ever
picked up a dead snake to kill a
stick?” “Perhaps that noise in your
car is the muffler bearing going
out?” “If smart phones are so great,
then you should buy two.”
Then there are the wrong words
that hopefully are errors. “Re-
member in prayer the many who
are sick of our community.”
“Scouts are saving cans, bottles
and other recyclables. Proceeds
will be used to cripple children.”
“Potluck supper Sunday at 5:00
p.m. – prayer and medication to
follow.” “The ladies’ group will
host an evening of fine dining, su-
perb entertainment and gracious
It is said that this one, my fa-
vorite disjointed riddle, is solved
by less that one out of 10 people.
If you are driving a bus and 14
people get on, then eight get off

Other factors
by United States Senator
Tim Johnson (D-SD)
We expect the men and women
who make up our armed forces to
be able to respond at a moment’s
notice to protect our nation
around the world. In return for
their service, they should expect
their government to be able to ef-
ficiently process their earned
benefits claims when they return
home. This hasn’t been the case.
As of June 22, the Department
of Veterans Affairs had 524,711
claims that have been pending
for more than 125 days. While
this figure represents an im-
provement from recent months,
the backlog remains embarrass-
ingly high. After fighting for our
country, our veterans shouldn’t
have to wait months on end for
the benefits they have earned
and deserve.
Recently, I worked with Senate
Appropriations Committee
Chairwoman Barbara Mikulski
to convene a roundtable to ad-
dress this issue. This brought to-
gether the leadership from the
Department of Veterans Affairs,
Department of Defense, Internal
Revenue Service, and the Social
Security Administration.
The backlog isn’t just a failure
by the VA. All of these agencies
need to provide information to
the VA for a veteran’s claim to be
processed. Solving the backlog
will require these agencies to co-
ordinate their efforts and direct
every resource available to fix
this problem, including man-
power, technology and training.
At the roundtable, Defense
Secretary Chuck Hagel and VA
Secretary Eric Shinseki agreed to
continue meeting every 60 days
to discuss efforts to end the back-
log, and all agencies agreed to
provide a coordinated progress
report to the Appropriations
Committee every two months. It
will take a commitment to work-
ing together to tackle this prob-
lem, and I can assure you that we
will hold their feet to the fire.
As Chairman of the VA Appro-
priations Subcommittee, I have
included in the Fiscal Year 2014
appropriations bill a 10-point ac-
tion plan to address the claims
backlog. This involves a combina-
tion of targeted investment, over-
sight, and accountability. The bill
provides funding for upgrades to
computer hardware and targeted
overtime for claims processors.
While we must work to end the
backlog, we cannot sacrifice accu-
racy in the process. My bill in-
creases training of claims
processors to ensure quality and
accuracy and provides quality re-
view teams to conduct spot audits
at VA regional offices. Addition-
ally, I’ve provided the Board of
Veterans Appeals with funding to
hire additional personnel to expe-
dite the processing of appeals.
The backlog wasn’t created
overnight and will take time to
eliminate. Secretary Shinseki
has committed to ending the
backlog by 2015. While I appreci-
ate this commitment, I under-
stand that for veterans who have
already been waiting for months,
2015 seems like a long way off.
We must approach this issue
with a sense of urgency. All vet-
erans should be able to have their
claims processed correctly and in
a timely manner. The Senate is
responding to the needs of our
veterans. I will continue working
with agency officials and my col-
leagues on both sides of the aisle
to make this a reality.
Fighting for America’s veterans
by Senator John Thune
Whether traveling for business
or a family vacation, South
Dakotans rely on commercial air-
line service and our state’s avia-
tion infrastructure to provide safe,
reliable air travel. While there can
be frustrations when it comes to
airline travel, maintaining con-
nectivity through safe, reliable
and affordable air service is vital
to our state’s growing economy.
The airline industry of today is
far different from what it looked
like prior to changes made in
1978, when Congress deregulated
the airlines and removed itself
from the business of selecting air-
line routes and setting ticket
prices. Since that time, capacity
has increased dramatically and
competition has meant that con-
sumers have more options when it
comes to choosing an airline or a
destination. Even with deregula-
tion, however, the federal govern-
ment maintains an important role
when it comes to infrastructure
investment, as well as ensuring
the safety and security of our avi-

Last year, the International
Labor Organization estimated 4.5
million victims were subject to sex
trafficking, many of which were
young girls. As a mom, the more I
learn about this issue, the more it
keeps me up at night. I can’t help
but think of the horror victims
face every day, as they live in fear
and endure abuse and loneliness.
Sex trafficking is not an easy topic
to talk about and it’s easy to con-
vince yourself that it isn’t happen-

While the Sturgis Motorcycle
Rally and South Dakota’s hunting
season are often known for their
positive impact on our state’s
economy and tourism industry,
both events pose incredible chal-
lenges in combating sex traffick-
ing. People travel to our state
under the pretense of attending a
special event, but instead travel to
sexually exploit victims. Just this
week, the Rapid City Police De-
partment, in coordination with
state and federal agents, arrested
seven men who were seeking sex
with underage girls at the Sturgis
rally. Unfortunately, this is far too
It is estimated as many as
300,000 children are victims of sex
trafficking every year in the
United States. These victims are
often very young – most girls are
first exploited between the ages of
12 and 14, while boys are first
abused between 11 and 13. This
kind of repulsive activity is tragic
and must not be tolerated. In
order to help end sex trafficking,
we need to do more to crack down
on those who create the demand
for this exploitive industry.
I have joined a bipartisan effort
to combat sex trafficking by intro-
ducing H.R. 2805, the End Sex
Trafficking Act of 2013. This leg-
islation will help eliminate human
trafficking rings by targeting the
criminals who solicit or attempt to
purchase sexual acts and ensuring
they are prosecuted as human
Specifically, the End Sex Traf-
ficking Act will amend the Traf-
ficking Victims Protection Act to
make it absolutely clear that both
recruiters of underage trafficking
victims and the criminals who
purchase sexual acts from those
victims should be arrested, prose-
cuted and convicted as sex traf-
ficking offenders. The bill also
leverages existing resources by di-
recting federally funded law en-
forcement task forces that are
part of the Innocence Lost Na-
tional Initiative to also focus on
investigating and prosecuting
those who solicit children for sex.
Often given the anonymous title
of “john,” those who choose to
harm innocent children should be
anything but anonymous. It’s time
to bring these degenerates out
from behind computer screens as
they respond to online advertise-
ments for sexual activities, get
them off the streets and put them
behind bars.
While we are making progress,
we must do more and I hope you’ll
join me in raising awareness
about this critical issue. I will con-
tinue to work with my colleagues
on both sides of the aisle, and with
our partners in the Senate, in of-
fering concrete solutions we can
take to keep our children safe.
Combating sex trafficking
ation system across the country.
It is also important to mention
the economic significance of both
commercial and general aviation
in a state like South Dakota,
where distance often presents a
barrier for commerce. Estimates
from the South Dakota Depart-
ment of Transportation suggest
that, in our state, the aviation in-
dustry supports 7,000 jobs, and
generates $800 million in business
sales and $250 million in personal
income annually, both directly
and indirectly. Still, challenges re-
main when it comes to maintain-
ing commercial service in a rural
state like South Dakota, which
has six commercial airports with
regularly scheduled flights and 65
other airports that provide vary-
ing degrees of general and busi-
ness aviation services.
Last week, as part of my work
as ranking member of the Senate
Commerce, Science, and Trans-
portation Committee, which has
jurisdiction over the Federal Avi-
ation Administration and the U.S.
Department of Transportation, I
hosted an aviation roundtable in
Sioux Falls. This roundtable pre-
sented an opportunity to discuss
not only the challenges, but also
the business opportunities when it
comes to commercial service for
both the aviation industry and
South Dakota communities. The
roundtable brought together air-
line representatives, along with
local leaders, and provided the
public with an opportunity to ask
questions and hear directly from
key stakeholders.
I was pleased with the discus-
sion and dialogue at the event,
and believe it represented a posi-
tive step to maintaining and
strengthening commercial airline
service throughout the state. I
look forward to continuing these
discussions in other South Dakota
communities and hearing from in-
dividuals, businesses, and com-
munity leaders on this issue. As I
continue my role on the Senate
Commerce Committee, I will work
to improve the safety, reliability,
efficiency, and accountability of
the aviation industry.

Pesticide Container
Recycling Collections
There are a few pesticide con-
tainer recycling collections com-
ing up in south-central and
southwestern South Dakota, con-
ducted by the South Dakota De-
partment of Agriculture (SDDA).
Remaining locations and dates in-
clude: Murdo – 9/3, Winner – 9/4,
Philip – 9/9, Martin – 9/9, Belle
Fourche – 9/10, Rapid City – 9/11,
and Wall – 9/11.
The program collects and recy-
cles agricultural, home and gar-
den pesticide containers. The
planned dates for each location
are listed on igrow.org at: http://
igrow. org/ up/ articles/ P6028-
2013.pdf (all times are local). The
containers collected must be
made from high density polyeth-
ylene (HDPE) embossed with re-
cycling symbol #2. Containers
must be empty and triple-rinsed
to be recycled. Caps and other
non-HDPE parts such as metal
handles and rubber linings can-
not be recycled and can be dis-
posed of as regular waste. It is
recommended to remove labels
from the containers before recy-
Foliar Fungicides on Corn,
Soybeans and Sunflowers
Numerous research studies
have been done regarding foliar
fungicide applications on corn,
soybeans and sunflowers. Results
have been a mixed bag. Under
significant fungal disease pres-
sure, one would naturally expect
yield increases for treated crops.
More questionable practices in-
clude fungicide applications with
no fungal diseases present, and
fungicide applications following
hail damage.
Fungicide applications in the
absence of disease have produced
yield increases, yield decreases
and no response. In considering
multiple research trials, this
practice offers little chance of an
economic return over the long
One reason that fungicide ap-
plications are considered for a
hail-damaged crop is that disease
infection is more likely to occur
after wounding. However, foliar
diseases managed by fungicides
do not require wounds for infec-
tion. It is also argued that crops
could be more susceptible to fun-
gal pathogens as a result of in-
creased stress. Another reason
fungicides are considered after
hail damage is that physiological
benefits gained from a fungicide
application will help sustain or
increase yield of damaged crops.
It is important to note that claims
by the chemical industry do not
state that fungicide applications
recover yield potential lost due to
hail damage. But some claims do
suggest fungicide application to
hail-damaged crops will protect
the remaining green tissue and
allow plants to maximize yield
after sustaining damage.
The standing recommendation
from SDSU Extension is to scout
for disease and consider a fungi-
cide application only if warranted
and use caution before applying
fungicides to hail damaged crops.
The fungicide may make the crop
more susceptible to bacterial dis-

Friday, August 9, 2013, at Som-
erset Court, we had a watermelon
eating contest which was set up on
the front patio. There was a good
turnout of watchers. It seems that
Dwight Mann was the winner for
the residents! Teams of staff mem-
bers ate remarkable quantities of
watermelon. Next was a water-
melon spitting contest which Fred
Smith was the outstanding win-
ner. The day was warm and the
sky was a wonderful blue with
light clouds. The flag hung
straight down.
The Philip Pioneer Review ar-
rived and it was loaded with so
much exciting news. Philip and
the vicinity had a terrific hail and
wind storm and there was much
damage reported. Mary Eide gave
a detailed picture of the hail de-
struction at her place. Glass splin-
ters were blown all over her bed,
some in shards, and some fine as
dust. At the same time, wonderful
gardens are growing and people
are enjoying their ripening veg-
etables. Sure makes one homesick
for his garden, with crookneck
squash and baby carrots. The
county fair and 4-H achievement
days took place the past weekend
(August 2-3) and were very suc-
cessful. It was great to see that
the Molyneaux Cabin on Highway
73, halfway up the hill going north
in Philip, is being repaired by Bud
Stickler, John Kangas and Les
Wintrode. This log cabin is a his-
torical reminder from 1888. It was
moved in 1896 and in its present
location in 1982.
I believe that Leanne (Brown)
Neuhauser, who writes the
Moenville News, is the same per-
son who was a darling first grader
in the Kadoka school in about
1972. Her brother, Tom, was in
school there too. I always read the
Moenville News to see how
Leanne is getting along with the
M.R. Hansen emailed and said
that I could email him my Hit and
Miss news, but I don’t know how.
He asked how the rally is going
and all I know is that there were
six dead at the time I last checked.
M.R. Hansen sent his email ad-
dress of mr.hansen@sdmt.edu.
Saturday, August 10, Wayne
and Gwynn Hansen came over to
Somerset Court for lunch. They
had arrived home Friday night
from their cruise up through the
Norwegian fjords and four days in
London. We were lucky to sit with
Zona Hairgrove and her son who
is a registered nurse. He is from
Minnesota. Zona had lived for
years across the street from Ken-
neth and Mary Hansen in Wall.
Wayne said that my son, David,
would be spending the weekend at
the Pat Trask ranch where they
were having a benefit fish fry and
picnic for Celine Trask who was
injured in a farm accident earlier
this year.
My great-granddaughter,
Melissa Snively, her husband,
Breck, and their daughter, Tea-
gan, who is going on three,
Gillette, came to visit. We played
a little chicken foot. Teagan col-
ored some pictures for me. Thank
you for your visit.
Sunday, August 11, 2013, Som-
erset Court resident Joanne
Manlove had a nice surprise. The
Rapid City Journal had an article
that was written by Lynn Taylor
Rick that had pictures and story
about Joanne’s son, Dr. Steven
Manlove, a physiatrist who with
two of his friends started a non-
profit organization to help adoles-
cents who have problems with
chemical dependency or behav-
ioral and/or mental health prob-
lems. In 20 years Wellspring has
helped more than 25,000.
You should see the diamond wil-
low canes that Ray carves. He has
two unusual ones that he showed
me. One has really deep “dia-
monds” and the other has a snake
and other entertaining features.
Ask him to show them to you.
August 12 was a great day with
three letters. One from my daugh-
ter, Carol, with photos of her four
nearby great-grands, Tony, Faith,
Sophia and Delilah. They are wa-
tering flowers in one photo and
another, sitting on the lawn eat-
ing ice cream cones in another. In
the background is a tall row of
tiger lilies in bloom.
One letter had beautiful hand-
crafted stationery from Crystal
Jackson. She swirled the ink in
fluid patterns with no two alike.
Thank you, Crystal. She also sup-
plied me with more of the Philip
Est. 1907 address labels that I
like. And the third letter was from
Wanda and Ed Artz. They sent
some pretty apple postcard
stamps. Thank you, Wanda and
Ed. They have been busy with
their trip to Montana to attend a
family reunion for Ed’s relatives.
Wanda also met people from Paw-
tucket, Conn., the town next to
“our” town, North Stonington,
Thursday, August 13, my son,
Wayne Hansen, and my daughter-
in-law, Gwynn, took me along to
Philip. We visited my old house
and noted that three windows
were broken by the recent hail
storm. Wayne asked the lumber-
yard in Philip to board up two and
install a new window in the other.
We had a good time looking at old
photos and other things and went
to eat dinner at the cafe in Philip.
They served huge plates of deli-
cious tender roast beef. Thanks for
the dinner, kids. At the cafe we
saw Vera and Dan Nelson, Sadie
Rae Singleton and Rich Smith.
Rich said that I had better get a
photo of the Doc Cowen house
where Fay Lillian Young and I
batched the winter of 1936-37.
That old house is about falling in.
We brought back to Rapid City
some old mugs from my collection
and some paintings I did years
ago and some other odds and ends.
Thank you for the trip, Wayne and
Crops of forage looked luxuri-
ant, and fields of sunflowers
loaded with blooms. These are
shorter and smaller sunflowers
than I have seen from years back.
There were lots of baled hay and
even some old bales still in fields.
We remembered to locate the
eagle’s nest by Quinn and ob-
served Fuddy’s prairie palm tree
which is even with mile marker 94
on Interstate 90. It rained on us
from Wasta to the fireworks busi-
ness. We saw groups of bikers
hanging out under the overpasses.
My daughter, Carol Vogan, Col-
orado Springs, emailed that they
had a terrific gully washer Sun-
day, August 11, 2013, that ran
over the Drennan Road about 60
feet wide and the low lying land
where the big new water pipeline
is was a river. The frogs came out
at once and began croaking!
At Thursday bingo our new res-
ident, Doris Bigler, was present.
We hope you like it here, Doris.
Chuck Allen and Etta Erd-
mann, Philip, visited Somerset
Court resident, Vivian Hansen,
Thursday, August 15. They had
seen seven bald eagles on a tall
tree north of the North Fork
bridge just west of Philip. The hail
had been hard on Chuck and
Etta’s rose bushes and it broke a
few windows for them too.
A letter came from my son,
Hans P. Hansen, Colorado
Springs, saying that he would try
to paint another portrait of one of
his favorite grade school teachers
if he had a good colored photo to
look at. He mentioned Lydia
McKay, Catherine Griffith, Alvina
Goodman, and Ann Crowser. The
portrait of Edith Clark that he
painted hangs in the Bad River
Senior Citizen’s Center, so he
thought he would like to try an-
other one.
Kaleb Allen, my newly adopted
great-grandson, printed me a nice
letter. I hung it on my door!
M.R. Hansen emailed from
Mongolia an account of the two
weeks when his daughter, Holly,
and her seven-year-old son, Asher,
were visiting M.R. and Barbara in
Mongolia and their trip across
Russia. You may borrow this
print-out from me if you would
like to read it.

Young Citizen’s League Stories
from Haakon County
The library now has available for
checkout a copy of the Young Citizen’s
League Major Project from 1956-1957
titled “Pioneers of South Dakota.”
This was a project done by the country
schools of South Dakota beginning in
the 1926-27 school year with the “goal
of improving citizenship and character
education in the elementary school
child through learning by doing.”The
YCL was a school-based club for boys
and girls, and this particular edition
was done by the school children and
pioneers of Haakon and old Stanley
counties. The pages in the binder
are copied verbatim from the origi-
nal papers which are a part of the li-
brary’s collection. It’s a great look
into the homestead days of our
county and most of the names will
be very familiar to the reader. Many
old towns and country schools are
also mentioned and this information
was the catalyst for the country
schools project the library has been
working on since January of this
year. Copies of individual reports
from the binder or a copy of the en-
tire binder are available at the li-
brary for a small printing fee.
Stop by the library Monday
through Thursday from 10:00 to
5:00. If you would like more infor-
mation, call 859-2442.
Another wild adventure this
week and it all started a year ago
when Gretchen Rausch called me
from the Wall Drug. She said that
a man whose name was Wilkerson
was in the store asking about the
ghost town of Grindstone and she
gave him my name and phone
number and that was the last I
heard about it till this last week
when the phone rang and it was
that same man. He said that he
was at the Grindstone Hall. So I
got in my pickup and drove over
there to talk to him.
He showed me his identity pa-
pers. He is a retired 30 year vet-
eran from the Navy. He married a
Japanese girl and has one daugh-
ter who is a nurse back home at,
Elizabethtown, Ky. His wife died
of cancer two years ago and he has
taken on this this as a hobby to
have something to do and helps to
keep him busy. He is looking for
treasures which one happens to be
at Grindstone. He had a lot of in-
formation from articles written by
a man by the name of Pauley who
said he had done much research
on Mexican Ed. Mexican Ed was
killed over in the doorway of his
saloon at Grindstone.
Well, I don’t know where Pauley
got his information or where he
did his research, but it sure didn’t
sound anything like what I heard
from my dad and Sam Kirkpatrick
or what I have read about Mexi-
can Ed from history here in this
area. I think this man Pauley
must have found he could sell his
publications of these articles and
made money doing it. Wilkerson
said Pauley had died and all his
articles sold high and was impos-
sible to get any of them now. I can
remember Sam Kirkpatrick
telling about playing cards with
Mexican Ed and how he described
him as a little man with dark
squinty eyes that could look a hole
through you. He was a very
shrewd person that you had better
not trust.
Well to make this story shorter,
this man named Wilkerson said
that he was looking for the money
Mexican Ed had buried in fruit
jars near his saloon as he would
leave after dark when he had
closed up and go out and bury his
cash according to this article that
Pauley had written. Wilkerson
had a metal detector with him and
a little spade and prod if he found
anything to dig.
Well, I could have added to his
story by making up my own folk
lore and told him that I thought
Mexican Ed was the guy that
robbed the stage and he was out
digging the money instead of
burying it so he could keep his sa-
loon open and to gamble with it.
But, I didn’t say anything. There
have been many people who
through the years have been out
here looking for that money from
the Wells Fargo stage coach rob-
bery which they think is buried
near Grindstone. Now this fruit
jar deal! The only man who got
anything from it probably was
Pauley from his articles from the
whole deal. I see that this morning
I had a message from Wilkerson. I
wonder if he is coming out here
again or if he is going back to his
home in Kentucky. He said that
he would go home and come back
later when the snakes had
denned, as he was terribly afraid
of snakes.
Well, I hope this story develop-
ment does not set off another
bunch of people looking for the pot
of gold at the end of the rainbow. I
have always felt that a bird in the
hand is better than looking for the
unknown. You may wonder what
I do in the country living so far
from town, but there is never a
dull moment out here in the
Grindstone community.
Marvin and Vicki Eide took
their all terrain vehicle to Pierre
to get some things fixed. They had
lunch in Pierre before they came
Keagan Fitch came down and
helped his grandpa, Marvin, patch
some places and put a coat of
sealer on my steel roof to keep the
rain out until the adjusters have
sent a report on all they will fix or
if a new roof will be needed. We
will just have to wait and see. We
should not feel too bad, as Bill
Gottsleben had worse damage
from the hail storm at his place.
August 19, Arnold Lewison
called from Philip and said that he
will be visiting in the Philip area
for a few days. Then they plan to
go to Deadwood for a couple of
days and try their luck. I plan to
go in and spend some time with
them. They also want to spend
some time visiting Clark Morrison
and others.

The Warren Sweezys were down
to Philip and picked up the Mike
Clements and they traveled to
Chamberlain. They picked up
Caleb Clements and his girlfriend,
Caitlyn, on their way to Huron to
attend the car races that Kenny
Clements participated in. Kenny
has only one more race for the sea-
son and he will be done.
Arianna Aramtatzis and Quade
Slovek went down to near Valen-
tine, Neb., to go tubing on the
river. They met up with her sister,
Allie, and friend, Casey, and
brother, Anthony. All reported
good weather and a great time.
They all enjoyed time together be-
fore Arianna returned to her
grandma, Donna Newman’s, Sun-
day. Arianna returned home after
lunch Monday, August 19.
We received another inch and
one-half of rain this week, all in
showers. It has been cool but
sounds like it is going to get hot. I
sure am glad I got my mowing
done during the cool weather. We
mowed until 9:00 p.m. before we
finished. I still have some trim-
ming to do but can do that in the
evenings or early mornings. Morn-
ings have been wet with dew and
foggy, so has been about noon be-
fore it was dry enough to mow. I
guess if I can live with it, those
who come can too.
It will be a long time before all
the damage from the hail storm is
fixed. It was so widespread and all
the carpenters in the area are busy
trying to get everyone fixed up.
The adjusters are overwhelmed
with all the damage and it is tak-
ing them a while to get the reports
Will close my news with this: I
was babysitting my neighbor’s lit-
tle boy and it started to rain as we
went outside. I told him to put on
his boots. After he had done that, I
looked at him and said, “You have
them on the wrong feet.” He
replied, “No, these are my feet!”
Mildred Allen
Can you find mine too?
My mother and aunt were riding
the Amtrak from Pennsylvania to
Florida and were passing the time
by playing Chinese checkers. When
the tray swayed, the game board
tipped and the marbles rolled to
the floor. When the attendant saw
mother on her hands and knees, he
asked if he could help? “No,” she
said, “I’ve just lost my marbles.”

August 22, 2013 • Pioneer Review 5
Frank O’Grady went home to be
with the Lord and his recently de-
ceased wife, Millie, on August 13,
2013. Frank and Millie had both
contracted para-infuenza in early
July and this took Millie’s life on
July 7. Frank’s condition was com-
plicated by pneumonia and we
thought we were going to have a
double funeral. But he decided he
wanted to live and gave it a good
fight. He got over the flu but never
quite kicked the pneumonia. He
was admitted to the emergency
room on Monday, August 12, and
won the battle Tuesday night when
he was welcomed into heaven, to
suffer no more. He was reunited
with Millie in time for her birth-
day, August 14.
Frank was born Frankie James
O’Grady to Thomas Claire and
Zelma (Markham) O’Grady on July
26, 1925, in Merrillan, Wis. He
lived in Merrillan until he joined
the Navy in September 1943. While
in the Navy, he served 25 months
of that time on an L.S.T. 10:15. He
was part of the original crew to put
their ship in commission at the
Boston Navy Yard and was one of
the last eight of the crew prior to its
decommission. While in the Pacific
his ship was involved in four inva-
He was discharged from the
Navy in May of 1946. He traveled
between Duluth, Minn., and the
state of Washington after leaving
the Navy, working alongside his fa-
ther as a fireman for the railroad.
It was there that he met his future
wife, Mildred Fritze. They were
married October 16, 1948. To this
union six children were born, five
daughters and one son. Frank
joined the Air Force National
Guard in 1949 and was activated
March of 1951. That same year he
enlisted in the Air Force. Many of
his 22 years were spent on the
flight line in aircraft maintenance.
During his enlistment he was sta-
tioned in several places including
Newfoundland, New Mexico and
Texas. In 1957, he was stationed at
Ellsworth Air Force Base. He and
Millie loved the Black Hills area
and decided to make Rapid City
their home for the remainder of his
military career and retirement.
Frank’s duties in aircraft mainte-
nance required him to spend quite
a bit of time TDY in places like
Alaska, Guam, Okinawa and Tai-
wan. He retired from the Air Force
in January 1970 as non commis-
sioned officer in charge of plans
and scheduling with the rank of
master sergeant. After retiring, he
went to work for the city of Rapid
City Water Department.
When Frank retired from the
City, he did various jobs, working
for Ace Hardware and driving a
city transit bus. He was elected to
city council in May 1992 and
served six years. He joined the Re-
tired Senior Volunteer Program
(RSVP) in 1996, serving on the ad-
visory council and was recognized
for his involvement with West
River Juvenile Services Center,
Pennington County Jail, Min-
neluzahan Senior Center, TREA,
North Rapid Civic Association,
Senior Meals Program, Hospice,
Friends of RSVP, and visiting pa-
tients at Rapid City Regional Hos-
pital. He was recognized as
volunteer of the year in July 2000.
Frank joined the Retired En-
listed Association (TREA) in 1983
and became their chaplain in 1995.
He took his position as chaplain
very seriously; visiting members or
their loved ones in the hospital,
presenting them with cards and
flowers and followed up on their re-
covery. As a member of the chapter
Honor Guard he officiated at funer-
als of the members. He had the
honor of being named the Chester
Sorenson Outstanding Veteran of
the Year for the state of South
Dakota for 2007-2008. He was priv-
ileged to be included on the Honor
Flight to Washington, D.C., as a
veteran of three wars, in August
Frank gave his heart to Jesus in
the fall of 1972. His was a life that
was truly transformed. He loved
God and he loved people and both
of these things were obvious to
everyone who knew him. He al-
ways had a smile and warm hug
ready for you. Frank was a Gideon
for many years and went on a mis-
sion trip to South America.
Frank was preceded in death by
both his parents; his two sisters,
Sarah and Elizabeth; his brother
Thomas; his grandson, James
Stonebarger; his granddaughter,
Karissa Moreno; and his beloved
wife of nearly 65 years, Millie.
He is survived by his six chil-
dren, Kathi (Sig) Martin of Platte
City, Mo., Karen (Phil) Carley of
Milesville, James (Glenna) O’-
Grady of Lead, Kim (Ron) Plender
of Box Elder, Mary (Mark) Wiebe of

Stanley Dean Peterson, age 87 of
Kadoka, S.D., died Monday, Au-
gust 12, 2013, at his home next to
his son's residence south of Rapid
City. He also had his main resi-
dence in Kadoka.
Stanley Dean Peterson was born
December 9, 1925, in Chadron,
Neb., the son of Delmar L. “Butch”
and Lois Blanche (McDonald) Pe-
terson. He was raised on the Peter-
son Ranch in the Sand Hills on
LaCreek, south of Martin. He grew
up during the Depression and
never forgot the sacrifices and hard
times. He grew up knowing the pi-
oneers, settlers and Native Ameri-
cans and learned from their stories
of survival and how they cleared
the way for the future generations.
Stanley attended Plainview School
and Bennett County High School.
Before finishing high school, he en-
listed in the United States Marine
Corps and entered active duty on
January 20, 1944, during WWII.
After boot camp, he was placed
in the V-12 Officer’s Program, at-
tending Arkansas A&M, and Col-
orado College, followed by Green’s
Farm Scouts and Sniper School at
Camp Pendleton. He served as a
troop transport quartermaster and
shipped out to the South Pacific on
the USS American Legion. After
returning, he briefly served on Ma-
rine patrol at Terminal Island near
Long Beach, Calif.
On August 2, 1946, he was hon-
orably discharged with the rank of
lance corporal and returned home
to his beloved Sand Hills, vowing to
never leave them. He finished his
education at Chadron State College
and the University of Northern
Colorado as a teacher and coach. At
Chadron, the post-war veterans
came together, as they had in war,
and won the football conference
championship two years in a row,
1947 and 1948. That brotherhood
remains today as the Purple Pas-
sion Group, who are honored at
every homecoming football game at
Chadron State College.
His first teaching and coaching
assignment was at Pine Ridge
High School, where he coached
football and started the first girls’
high school basketball team in
western South Dakota. He then left
for Redding, Calif., where he con-
tinued his teaching and coaching
He returned to South Dakota in
1951 due to his mother’s illness. He
met the love of his life, Frances
Yvonne Craven, who was singing
at a Christmas program in Wan-
blee. They were married Septem-
ber 8, 1952, in Rapid City, and
returned to Redding where they
made their home, until the draw of
western South Dakota brought
them back in 1968. They made
their home in Kadoka. In 1988, at
age 64, he finished his teaching
and coaching career.
He spent his retirement years
serving on the Kadoka City Council
and Kadoka School Board. He re-
turned to coaching at Rapid City
Christian High School during
1998-1999. At that time, he was
the oldest active football coach in
South Dakota, and his assistant
coach was his son, Casey Peterson.
He was proud of his heritage,
which traced back to the
Mayflower and the Sons of the
American Revolution. He was a
lifelong member of the American
Legion Post #240 of Martin.
He fondly remembered all the
students he was privileged to teach
and coach, each of whom he re-
membered with incredible detail.
As a teacher and coach, he would
not tolerate bullying, and de-
manded loyalty and respect for
He loved to teach anyone who
had an open mind, especially his
children and six grandchildren. He
was a philosopher, storyteller and
poet who studied all aspects of life.
He stimulated discussion with the
coffee group in Kadoka with ques-
tions such as “What’s the difference
between freedom and liberty; hap-
piness and contentment; or respect
and love?” He believed in living life
with memories in mind and the im-
portance of choosing what is God-
made, and not man-made.
After the loss of his beloved wife
on June 7, 1995, he remained ded-
icated to their marriage, home and
family. In his later years, he spent
his time with his family in Kadoka
and Rapid City.
He remained standing on his
own two feet, until the day his jour-
ney took him to God and his
beloved wife in heaven.
Grateful for having shared his
life are his son, Casey Peterson and
his wife, Kathryn, and their sons,
Casey, Dean, Tanister and Torin,
of Rapid City; his daughter, Robin
Peterson-Lund and her husband,
Arnold, of Kadoka and their chil-

ald, Patty McDonald Fralick and
Danny McDonald families; brother-
in-law, Edmund Risse and his fam-
ilies; Donna Wagner's children and
their families; and a host of other
relatives and friends.
In addition to his wife, Frances,
Stanley was preceded in death by
his two sisters, Gloria Risse and
Donna Wagner.

ditorium, with Father Bryan
Sorensen officiating.

It’s goodbye to the unusual fall
like days we’ve been enjoying this
month of August and hello to nor-
mal August weather with temper-
atures predicted to be in the upper
90s to 100s. And that humidity on
Sunday! Well, let’s just say you
didn’t have to move much to bring
on a sweat. It’s an interesting
drive to Pierre these days, with
field after field of sunflowers; it’s
like looking at a ‘sea of yellow.’ It’s
an amazing sight to be sure. A
sight that is unusual for this area
of the country. The past few years
some folks have tried their hand
at planting some sunflower crops,
but this summer takes top honors.
It’s due in part because of failed
winter wheat crops caused by the
drought. Sunflowers and other fall
crops were planted to take the
place of those wheat crops, so bar-
ing a run into with Mother Na-
ture, harvest this fall will be busy.
It’s interesting, don’t you think,
how life’s journey takes us off on
an adventure of trying out new
and different things from what we
consider, as normal? With those
fall crops looking so good, farmers
are ever watchful, with hopes for
a bountiful harvest.
Correction: In last week’s news
column I wrote about Alice Jeitz
being the only remaining sibling
of the Jeitz family. Alice was a
Buchannan and married a Jeitz. I
knew that, but sometimes my
mind goes off on a track of its own.
Alice (Buchanan) Jeitz, Margaret
(Buchanan) Markwed, Helen
(Buchanan) Peters and John
Buchanan were the son and
daughters of John A. and Lillie
Buchanan. Their dad was called
Jack by family and friends and
had a talent for being an auction-
eer and became known as “Colonel
Jack.” His grandson, Billy Mark-
wed, has followed in his footsteps.
Morrie and Barb Jones live on
what had been the Buchanan
place at one time.
It was a very busy weekend in
Midland with Midland Market
held on Friday night with fun and
games for kids, auction benefit on
Saturday and an estate auction on
Sunday. Will get into all of that a
bit later! Folks will sometimes ask
what we do in small town Amer-
ica. They have no idea, that is a
fact. Just ask a local news re-
porter, right? Okay, time to get at
the news before I get off on one of
my stories.
Friday, August 9, Allen and
Traci Evans, Tiahnna and Taylor,
Sioux Falls, came to the home of
Allen’s parents, Bob and Verona
Evans. Coming Saturday were
Bob and Verona’s son. Stan
Evans. and his wife. Cathy, Rapid
City. After a time of visiting and
all having supper together, Stan
and Cathy headed for home.
Allen, Traci, and girls left for
home Sunday.

Congratulations to Ginger Fen-
wick, Ft. Pierre, being a $2,200
winner at Sutley’s Market in Ft.
Pierre. Her husband, Ted Fen-
wick, was a $500 winner at a local
drawing in their area. Chuckling,
his sister, Pat Snook, said she won
some nickels at the nickel game
played at the Fenwick family re-
union recently. Speaking of Pat,
last December she set a goal of
doing one new thing for each
week, making a total of 52 new
things for the year. It is called the
‘bucket list!’ Good luck, Pat!
Having graduated from Black
Hills State University in
Spearfish, Ashley Schofield will be
teaching kindergarten at a two-
year-old school building in Custer
this year. Her class is one of three
kindergarten classes at Custer.
Saturday, Ashley’s brother, Lan-
don, and her grandmother, Sophie
Foley, took a load of her things up
to Custer. Ashley’s mom, Renee
Schofield, recently had surgery so
wasn’t able to help with the mov-
ing, but rode along to supervise.
Right, Renee? Good luck on your
first year of teaching, Ashley. Just
between you and me, she’ll be a
great kindergarten teacher.
Midland kids graduating from
high school at Philip will soon be
heading off for college. Thomas
Doolittle is going to Mitchell Tech-
nical Institute; Samantha Huston
to BHSU in Spearfish; Gavin
Snook to SDSU in Brookings and
Katelyn Enders to Lake Area
Technical Institute in Watertown.
I received a letter from long-
time Midland area resident, Max-
ine Stirling, giving me an update
on where she is living now and
how she is doing. Last fall, she
had driven to Rapid City for her
regular mammogram and learned
she had breast cancer. Additional
tests were done and treatments
quickly followed. Having family in
Rapid City and the area she is
now living in Rapid City. Her jour-
ney with cancer has taken her
through a number of surgeries.
She reports she has won the bat-
tle, but it robbed her of all energy
which requires a number of day
time naps. Not able to live on the
ranch anymore, her family has lo-
cated an apartment moving furni-
ture and Maxine into that
apartment. Living on the seventh
floor of that apartment building,
she reports she has a beautiful
view of the valley. In time she
hopes to take part in the many ac-
tivities they have going on in the
apartment building. She also
plans to make some trips to the
family ranch as she grows
stronger. Knowing she would
enjoy hearing from her friends
back home her address is: Maxine
Stirling; 616 Cathedral Drive;
Apt. 711; Rapid City, SD 57701.
We wish you God’s speed in heal-
ing, Maxine. Folks miss you in the
Midland area.
There was a huge crowd at the
cancer benefit for Terry Schofield
Saturday, August 17. The auction
was a huge success, with a free
will donation supper for everyone
to enjoy. A dance was held later in
the evening celebrating the 40th
wedding anniversary of Terry and
Linda Schofield. A whole lot of
their family was there for the ben-
efit, as were many friends from
Midland and the surrounding
area. The auctioneers did a
mighty fine job and those who put
together this cancer benefit for
Terry are to be commended for all
of their time and work to make it
a success for a family in need dur-
ing this difficult time in their
lives. It’s good to see a community
coming together to show they care.
Our thoughts and prayers are
with you Terry and with your fam-
Sunday, August 18, those same
auctioneers, plus one or two oth-
ers, were at the auction sale of the
Clarence “Smokey” and Arline
Petoske sale. It was a hot, humid
day. A huge crowd was there for
the sale of property, house and
other buildings, works of art and
household items. Arline and her
late husband, Smokey, as most
folks called him, were a huge part
of this Midland community and
the surrounding area. Their chil-
dren, Barb Jones, Jody Block and
Jim Petoske, were all there as
were their spouses and many of
Smokey and Arline’s grandchil-
dren and great-grandchildren. It
was a family united on what was
not an easy day. Smokey and Ar-
line raised their family in that
house. For many years that house
has sat on that hill just outside of
Midland with a view of the town of
Midland and the Bad River, with
its sunrises and its sunsets. It has
been known as the Petoske place
for many years. And now, will be
known as the place of Lucas and
Bridget Schofield, as they are the
ones who bought the house and
property. A country schoolhouse,
which was known as the Liberty
School, is a part of that property.
Family remembers Lloyd Reiman
telling Smokey he was glad he had
bought that school in later years.
Lloyd and his twin sister, Lo-
rainne, went that school as did
Irene Eckert, who later became
Irene Willoughby, to name a few.
Arline was a gifted artist, roses
being her specialty. I have a huge
painting of one of her pictures of
roses; it was a gift from my mom,
Olga Meyers. Many of her paint-
ing were sold that day. A scenic
picture of hers caught my eye and
I was lucky enough to buy that
very picture. I’ve been told the
auctioneers wondered that morn-
ing how best to display those pic-
tures to auction off. Whichever
one came up with the idea of how
to do it, it was excellent. It
couldn’t have worked out better.
Arline, I believe you would have
approved of the care that was
given to your precious works of
art. Your paintings have found a
new home with family and friends
to enjoy, with thoughts of the
artist who was such a part of each
and every painting. The Nelson
family was a gifted family. Ar-
line’s dad, Oliver Nelson, enjoyed
drawing cartoon characters, fam-
ily said he drew them on whatever
paper was available. Arline’s sis-
ter, Nadine, did beautiful art work
and brother, Clayton, was known
for his charcoal drawings of people
at local fairs, on the street, or
wherever he happened to be.
Some at the sale told of having his
drawings of their children.
Gene and Audrey Jones went
to Rapid City Sunday for a baby
shower for their daughter, Julie,
and their grandson, Walt
Whitcher. Paula Jones and Sara
Rankin hosted the shower at the
home of a friend of theirs. Gene
and Audrey returned home Sun-
day evening.
As I close my column for an-
other week, my thoughts are on
those families of the auction sales
this past weekend with its mix-
ture of emotions. A time of folks
coming together for a family deal-
ing with cancer, another family
with memories of a home they had
grown up in and now would be
someone else’s home for building
memories. As those auctioneers
who worked tirelessly doing their
best for the families of those two
auctions in that heat and humid-
ity, I’m thinking they were more
then a bit tired when all was said
and done? They did a mighty fine
job. That they did.
I had a nice visit with Austin
O’Dea at one of the auctions.
Austin has grown into a fine
young man and filled me in on
what his brother, Nathan, is
doing. Nathan was like one of my
boys, as he spent a lot of time at
our house when he and Christo-
pher were in school. Both went on
to serve in the Navy, Nathan is
there now and Christopher having
served his time is now in reserves.
Life is interesting and amazing.
With modern technology, Austin
texted Nathan to say he had been
talking with us and Nathan texted
a message back. Thanks for shar-
ing his message, Austin, and
thanks for the nice visit and good
luck at college in Montana. His
brother, Brandan, is in college in
Aberdeen, I believe he said. Both
are in college that much I do
We have appointments in
Pierre this Tuesday morning, so
better head for the shower. Take
time to enjoy today – for you can’t
get it back. Have a good week!

All of the Jim Stangle family at-
tended the South Dakota Veteri-
nary Medical Association annual
convention in Sioux Falls from
last Sunday through Wednesday.
A big congratulations to Dr. Jim
on receiving the honor of Veteri-
narian of the Year for South

Bill and Connie Parsons left on
Sunday, August 10, for Cranberry
Portage in Manitoba, Canada, for
a fishing adventure. They arrived
Monday evening, after driving
over 900 miles. A guide, Bob, took
them out on the lake 20 miles to
fish for northerns Tuesday. They
got their limit of eight in the size
limit. Wednesday, Bob took them
to another lake about 12 miles out
in shallower water to fish for wall-
eye. Again, they caught their limit
in size and number. Bob and Bill
fished for lake trout Thursday,
with Bill catching one, then call-
ing it a day. While they were
there, the weather was beautiful,
which was unusual for this time of
year. The crops looked good, but
they all need quite a lot of time yet
to mature – lots of pretty yellow
mustard fields. The wheat was
late. It seemed there were quite a
lot of preventive planting fields
that were idle. They saw very few
cattle. They left for home Friday
by way of the Peace Gardens, get-
ting home Saturday evening.
Saturday, Jim and Linda Stan-
gle, Sam, Ben and Mark, attended
the 90th annual Old Settlers pic-
nic at Lakeside.
Nick Hamill, as an FFA officer,
went to the Central States Fair in
Rapid City Saturday where he
worked the petting zoo area. Then
he traveled to Spearfish that night
and stayed with his aunt and
uncle, Kristi and Brian Dela-
hoyde. Jason, Vonda and Carson
drove to Spearfish Saturd ay and
they enjoyed a nice time up
Spearfish Canyon at The Lodge.
They toured some falls and did
some hiking, joining Fred and
Priscilla Romkema for supper.
Sunday, Jason and Vonda cele-
brated their 23rd anniversary.
Also on Sunday, Vonda ran her
first full marathon, the Leading
Ladies. There were 180 ladies
running the full and 250 in the
half. Congratulations, Vonda!
Vonda's neighbors can now rest
assured that they won't be in dan-
ger of hitting her along the road,
running her over with an imple-
ment, or finding her lying along-
side the road. She's had several
funny experiences running out
here on the roads getting ready for
that race.

sons' place: Wednesday, Will An-
ders and Henry Hanson had lunch

Cory Lambley is the new princi-
pal for the Philip Junior High and
Philip High School.
Lambley started Monday, Au-
gust 12, less than one week before
some fall sports practices began
and only nine calendar days be-
fore the first day of classes.
“I’m from the Midwest. Wanted
to stay in this area. I come from an
ag background, so it made a lot of
sense,” said Lambley. “I’ve heard
a lot of good things about the stu-
dents, teachers and community.
Everyone has been very welcom-
ing so far.”
Lambley has a teaching back-
ground, and is now beginning his
first year as an administrator.
After finishing high school in
Burke, he earned a bachelors of
science in education, with a minor
in coaching, from Northern State
University in Aberdeen. His first
couple of years of teaching were in
Irene/Wakonda, followed by three
years in Timber Lake and four
years in White River.
Working with youth came natu-
rally. “I wanted to go into coach-
ing, and be around kids,” said
Lambley. “History made sense to
me. It came a lot easier than other
subjects.” He added, “Best thing
about teaching is seeing the kids
He has now earned a masters in
school administration from the
University of South Dakota in
Vermillion. “I just wanted to fur-
ther my education. I felt I wanted
a new challenge,” said Lambley.
He will also be fulfilling half of the
athletic director’s duties, along
with Kory Foss.
Though not in an official coach-
ing capacity, he hopes to be able to
volunteer a bit of help with the
football team. Lambley has previ-
ously coached football and track.
He also helped restart Legion
baseball in one community. “It’s a
lot of work starting up something
you haven’t had for a long time,”
he said.
He likes small towns and is im-
pressed with the community of
Philip. “The people are real
friendly, and the street I live on
seems to be the busiest street I’ve
lived on yet. I didn’t realize there
was that much traffic in Philip,
S.D.,” he said. “That’s one thing
I’ve noticed, the country really
does look good up here. It’s good to
see.” He added, “Schools are a big
part of these communities. They
kind of revolve around the school.”
He grew up in a family that
likes to hunt. They used to even
hunt coyotes with trained grey-
hound dogs. Lambley plans to go
wolf hunting in western Montana
sometime next fall. As for fishing,
“I like my fish on a plate,” said
Lambley. Birds, though are an-
other thing, “Lot of pheasant,
grouse, ducks, geese – I’m more
into the birds.”
Lambley planned a simple and
straight forward first day of
school. “I’m going to introduce my-
self to the students and welcome
them to a new school year,” said
Lambley is secondary principal

Steve Lei-
thauser, Cotton-
wood, began his
duties as the new
maintenance di-
rector and custo-
dial supervisor for
the Haakon
School District on
May 1, finishing
out the district’s
fiscal year. In
July, he began a
full contract.
Leithauser has
worked for the
Badlands Na-
tional Park and
has retired from
plumbing work in
Rapid City. “I’ve
run plumbing
crews and like
that, but this is a
little different,”
said Leithauser.
He has been try-
ing to get things
caught up and
more efficient. He
said that he and
the crew are usu-
ally very busy fix-
ing things here
and there, in
Philip and at the
country schools. It
is interesting
work, especially
since it is an old
school system. His
job covers from
changing light bulbs to taking
apart a heating unit to filling in
cracks in sidewalks, on top of all
the painting and cleaning.
Everyone has welcomed him into
the school. Leithauser acknowl-
edged that maintenance, instruc-
tors, administration and everyone
else has their likings on how some
things should be. He said that most
people are willing to help in point-
ing out where things are. Casey
Seager has been here for 22 years.
Leithauser said Seager is pretty
knowledgeable and knows how the
staff likes their system. Also on the
maintenance staff are Brenda
Grenz and Johanna Baye, who par-
ticularly “keep the vo ag, elemen-
tary and what we call the
two-story, all the janitorial stuff,”
said Leithauser.
Leithauser said that the summer
staff was good. The three student
summer workers were Seth Haigh,
Paul Guptill and Brian Pfeifle. “So
far, my summer help was the most
interesting part of my job. Kind of
like summer camp with them.
Some of the things they say and do
remind you of when you were a kid.
Puts life in perspective. They
helped; some
p r o b a b l y
learned some
things from me
and Seager,”
said Lei-
thauser. They
got to do a
whole bunch of
stuff (such as
strip and wax
floors) others
might not do
until later in
life, if ever.
They learned
what it takes
for Seager and
Leithauser to
keep the school
operating and
functional, from
bleachers to
Dur i ng
his summer
work, he has
seen kids com-
ing up to lift
weights and be
in volleyball
camps. Now,
during the
school year
there’s all the
activities. There
will be setting
up and tearing
down of chairs,
like for plays,
and stuff like
that. The school
year will proba-
bly be short, it’ll go by fast. “It goes
by pretty fast when the school’s in
session. It isn’t so quiet around
here,” said Leithauser.
One of Leithauser’s main rea-
sons for taking this position is that
this area is some place to raise a
family. His son, Phillip, is in the
ninth grade at Philip High School.
Teachers know the kids. Kids
aren’t “rushed” like in larger
schools. “Teachers look after the
kids, rather than some falling be-
tween the cracks. I guess that may
be why families are looking at
smaller schools,” said Leithauser.

Brigitte Bruck-
lacher was in-
ducted into
Honored Women
Educators of
South Dakota at
the annual South
Dakota Honored
Women Educa-
tors meeting.
Br uc kl ac he r
has been a
teacher since
1985 and the ad-
viser to the Philip
Family, Career,
Community Lead-
ers of America
C h a p t e r
(FCCLA). Her
chapter has pro-
duced seven state
officers, and four
state STAR Event
winners which
went on to repre-
sent South
Dakota at na-
tional competi-
tion. The Philip
chapter also re-
ceived a national
FCCLA Commu-
nity Service
Award. Many
Philip students
have been se-
lected to serve on
state peer educa-
tion teams.
Under Brucklacher’s guidance,
students have carried out many
community service projects. One
such project is the Dig Pink Night.
This event occurs at a volleyball
match when spectators are en-
couraged to arrive dressed in pink,
cancer survivors are recognized,
and activities occur between every
set. In two years, over $3,000 has
been raised for the Susan G.
Komen Foundation through this
Additional community service
projects this year included a traf-
fic safety project, making blankets
for children affected by domestic
violence, collecting pop tabs for
Ronald McDonald House, promot-
ing the use of cloth grocery bags,
an angel tree at Christmas, free
childcare at parent conferences,
and raising funds for Make-A-
Wish, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
and the Gem Theatre.
Former student Laura O’Con-
ner credits Brucklacher with in-
fluencing her career choice. “She
has inspired many students such
as myself. Mrs. Brucklacher was
my FHA (Future Homemakers of
America, former FCCLA name)
adviser who noticed the talent I
possessed for leadership and she
encouraged me to develop those
leadership skills. As a result of her
encouragement, I did well in com-
petitive FHA events, advancing to
the national convention as well as
becoming a South Dakota state of-
ficer. Mrs. Brucklacher was a
major influencing factor for my de-
cision to become an educator.”
Brucklacher has been recog-
nized by her peers with the follow-
ing awards:

Matt "Rip" Rippentrop of Oel-
richs has received Boone and
Crockett Club's inaugural Hunt
Fair Chase Award. The award rec-
ognizes extraordinary determina-
tion, self reliance and respect for
Rippentrop was honored for
these ethics during a grueling
Montana hunt that ultimately
produced a massive bighorn ram
scoring 203-6/8, which ranks num-
ber eight in all time records.
The award was presented as
part of the club's recent 28th Big
Game Awards in Reno, Nev.
Well-known hunting writer and
television personality Craig Bod-
dington presented the award to
Rippentrop before a crowd of 450.
Boddington told the audience,
“Fair chase is just two words, but
their meaning has deep signifi-
cance to everyone who hunts and
teaches young people about hunt-
ing. This was not an easy call to
make, but of all the accounts of
hunts from these 28th awards,
Rip's story read 'fair chase' from
beginning to end. A 38-day, out-of-
state, do-it-yourself campaign was
certainly the way to honor a once-
in-a-lifetime sheep tag.”
The Hunt Fair Chase Award
reads, “In recognition of a hunt
that best represents the determi-
nation, self reliance, and respect
for the game that embodies the
tenets of fair chase set forth by
Boone and Crockett Club founder
Theodore Roosevelt.”
“We're honored to sponsor the
Hunt Fair Chase Award,” said
Jason Ritthaler of Hunting GPS
Maps. “All of us at Hunting GPS
Maps are deeply grateful for the
club's work in conservation and
fair chase across North America ...
It is these ethics that Hunting
GPS Maps works to pass on to the
next generation of hunters."
Hunting GPS Maps personnel
joined the Boone and Crockett
Records Department and others in
judging for the award a number of
written descriptions of hunts that
exemplify the term fair chase.
Founded by Theodore Roosevelt
in 1887, the Boone and Crockett
Club promotes guardianship and
visionary management of big
game and associated wildlife in
North America. Member accom-
plishments include enlarging and
protecting Yellowstone and estab-
lishing Glacier and Denali na-
tional parks, founding the U.S.
Forest Service, National Park
Service and National Wildlife
Refuge System, fostering the
Pittman-Robertson and Lacey
Acts, creating the Federal Duck
Stamp program, and developing
the cornerstones of modern game
Oelrichs hunter, “Rip” Rippentrop,
honored by Boone and Crockett Club
Hay values are driven by supply
and demand. In 2012 values re-
mained high due to drought and
limited supply and in 2013, values
continue to remain fairly high pri-
marily due to limited hay acres. De-
termining a fair pricing system for
haying CRP grass, prairie grass, or
old field forage has been a hot topic
as these hay markets continue to re-
tain high market values, said Pete
Bauman, SDSU Extension Range
Field Specialist.
“On the heels of drought, many
growers are surprised by the excel-
lent growth year for grasses, espe-
cially in the east. Consequently,
landowners are being approached
by hay contractors interested in
harvesting hay in various grass-
lands or pastures," he said. "Due to
a strong production year, additional
acres such as emergency CRP likely
will not be available as they were in
2012, making grass hay less avail-
Below Bauman explains the ba-
sics of various hay contract agree-
ment, noting that in any case the
key is to agreeing on the front end
what type of terms the agreement
will contain:
Cash Rent (per acre): In this sys-
tem, the hay contractor pays the
landowner a set fee for each acre of
hay land. The benefit of this type of
agreement is it can be based on rel-
atively average hay production for
the field and a fair price can be set.
The downside to this type of agree-
ment is that to be fair, good records
of annual production should be
kept. Fluctuations in hay value,
quality, and quantity due to
weather or markets can result in ei-
ther the landowner or the hay con-
tractor believing the agreement is
not fair.
Share Cropping (traditional):
There are two variations of this sys-
tem. Traditionally with share crop-
ping, both the landowner and the
hay contractor are interested in re-
taining ownership of the physical
hay crop. Generally, these agree-
ments consist of an agreed upon
ratio of retention for each party.
Typically, the hay contractor re-
ceives two-thirds of the hay crop
and the landowner receives one-
third. Both parties have the option
to either sell, store, or feed their
portion of the crop.
Share Cropping (cash purchase):
This type of contract is similar to
the traditional, with the exception
that the hay contractor purchases
the landowner's portion of the hay
crop immediately. This purchase
agreement is based on the market
value or any mutually agreeable
value. Value may be based on ton-
nage or per bale.
Share cropping agreements de-
scribed above can be very fair as
both the landowner and the hay
contractor share the risk and re-
wards of hay markets, quality, and
quantity. However, determining the
correct share ratio can be a point of
contention under certain market or
harvest scenarios if volume and
price are dramatically different
than initially expected. .
Cash Agreements: A third option
which is receiving much interest
lately is a cash-based agreement
that accounts for total hay value
less the pre-determined value of the
cost of production to the hay con-
tractor. Essentially, this system is
very similar to the share cropping
agreements but it allows for the hay
contractor and landowner to discuss
and agree upon a fixed rate for har-
vest costs, of which the hay contrac-
tor is fully reimbursed for
regardless of the quality, quantity,
or value of the hay. In a typical cash
agreement, the landowner has no
desire to retain any interest in the
Hay harvest agreement pricing options
hay crop.
For landowners who wish to max-
imize their potential profits while
ensuring fairness in their relation-
ship with the hay contractor, this
type of agreement is valuable.
Below is a simple equation that can
create and maintain equality in a
hay harvest relationship. With a
small amount of homework, the
landowner and the hay contractor
can develop contract parameters
that are fair and equitable based on
actual product produced.
Background information neces-
sary for a successful Cash Agree-
Type: Generally hay crops are cate-
gorized as alfalfa, alfalfa/grass
mixed, grass, straw, etc.
Quality: Generally, grass hay qual-
ity is affected by three primary fac-
tors: Species, timing of harvest and
handling. If grass hay is harvested
prior to seed set forage quality can
generally be assumed to be very
good. Cool season grasses such as
smooth brome should generally be
harvested in late spring/early sum-
mer while warm season species
should be harvested in mid-sum-
mer (depending on the year). If
harvest timing is off, you may have
excellent volume with poor quality
or vise-versa. Many times harvest
dates are dictated by various agri-
cultural program rules, so be cer-
tain you understand what factors
might dictate your harvest dates.
Handling and exposure to moisture
can also be a major factor in grass
hay quality.
Value: Value can be determined
by checking your hay type and
quality against local markets and
auction companies. Sales reports
are fairly standardized and re-
ported categorically as type of bale
(i.e. large round, small round, large
square, etc.), quality [supreme, pre-
mium, good, fair or utility (or simi-
lar terminology)], and price is re-
ported as dollars per ton (not
dollars per bale).
Tonnage or pounds per bale:
Most producers have an estimate of
what size of bales their baler aver-
ages. In many cases, round bales
generally weigh about 1,000 - 1,200
lbs. (roughly ½ ton). However,
balers can be variable and
landowners and producers should
work together to verify the average
bale weight.
Producer investment: Harvest-
ing requires an investment into
labor, equipment, and fuel. Har-
vest investment of $20 - $25 per
bale is not uncommon, but again
landowners and producers should
mutually agree upon this value
prior to harvest.

My, the state looks wonderful in
the way of crops as I traveled
along the interstate. Wheat seems
to be having the most trouble at
the present, still a lot of fully ripe
crops standing in the field. Bill,
Terry Buchert and Jim Smith can
attest to that in the Plainview
area. Sunflowers are brilliant yel-
low, just now opening up really
well. Grain sorghum and milo are
looking good as well as the corn.
Millet fields are heading out
nicely and even our crop north of
Philip that got hailed on is work-
ing hard to recover from that
shock treatment. To put things in
perspective, I would like to share
with you entries from the journal
written by my mom, Ruth
Fairchild. August 20, 1957
“Warm all night but a west – NW
wind so may not get so hot. Mar-
vin (Brooks) finally going to com-
bine wheat – I think. Plans
changed – will put in winter
wheat before leaving on trip.” Au-
gust 21, 1957 “Hot in afternoon.
Started combining at 11:00 a.m.
Arlie (Brooks) here for dinner. Got
about 7 pickup loads. Wayne to
Rapid for seed wheat. Morgan
(Williams) gave Marsha 2 pigeons.
Kids caught hawk but it died.
Wayne home about 10:00.”
Sandee and Kelsey Gittings
were in Rapid City Monday. They
were able to pick up the dog that
was taken from Jessica Gittings
two months ago and return it to
Monday, Bill and I, along side of
Leonard Konst, overnighted at the
race track in Sioux Falls and in
the morning we parted company.
Leonard had places he was going
to explore along the way and Bill
and I were anxious to get home.
We got home in time for Bill to get
in some time at the card room in
Philip. Phyllis Word came by for a
visit and treated me to lunch out.
I got the motor home cleaned up
for the next event, which will be
Bill parked at Howes. I got the
yard mowed, wish I had a rake to
pull behind, the grass was tall
enough I think I may have been
able to make a square bale out of
it. Wishful thinking I guess.
Monday found Tony Harty
doing mowing around town for the
folks that depend on him. He
stopped by our place to give me his
news and because it doesn’t take
too long to play a couple of games
of farkel, that happened and he
Don and Vi Moody spent the
first part of the week preparing
for a vacation in Wisconsin. The
plan was to go to Rapid Tuesday
evening, stay overnight, keep an
appointment, drop the two dogs
off for boarding and be on their
way. However, an inch and one-
half of rain Tuesday afternoon
changed the first part of the plan.
They went to Rapid Wednesday,
August 15, did what they planned,
stayed the night at the ranch then
headed out by noon Thursday on
their trip east to Prairie du Chien,
Wis. They spent two nights on the
road for the fun of it, with an ex-
tended stay at Albert Lea, Minn.,
checking out that area and en-
joyed buying fresh vegetables at
lots of private farms.
I need to know the rest of the
story. A couple of weeks back in
the Pioneer Review’s Blast from
the Past 85 years ago Uncle Joe
Fairchild was being tried for steal-
ing 19 head of horses. Well, we
know they didn’t hang him, but
what really happened?
George and Sandee Gittings
voted in Philip Tuesday evening
on a member for the West Central
Electric board.
Tuesday, Ralph and Cathy
Fiedler and Cathy’s sister,
Jeanette, went to Philip to see
their mom, Katy Drageset. They
visited for awhile then went to the
sale barn for pie and a visit with
Diana Stewart. Jeanette went and
watched the cattle sale with
Ralph. She had never seen a cattle
sale. They stopped back at the
nursing home and had a nice visit
before heading for Sturgis. They
stopped in Wall and waited out
the storm that they saw coming
their way. No hail, just lots of
rain. They stopped in Rapid for
Tuesday morning, I was driving
the Haakon County Prairie Trans-
portation van to Philip with folks
to keep appointments and to visit
family in the hospital. I had coffee
with Dean and Mary Parsons
while waiting. Also had a nice
visit with Carrol and Vern Foland
and Greg Weber. Bill was on the
road north with the motor home,
hoping to combine wheat, but it
rained, so after parking the motor
home he came home. He got here
about the time we really got that
heavy rain. Thank goodness we
didn’t get any hail.
George Gittings was in Midland
on business Wednesday afternoon.
Tony Harty picked up the mail
Wednesday and continued on to
Martin for some entertainment.
He found that Highway 73 south
is getting fixed up and had to wait
for the pilot car on a couple of
stretches going down, but had
clear sailing on the way home.
Wednesday at breakfast, we
saw Sheryl and Gene Michaels
from Philip, also out for breakfast.
I wasted time that day fussing
around with the computer, it
won’t stay hooked up to the Inter-
net explorer. But, besides that lit-
tle inconvenience, all was good.
Bill made it to Philip for cards in
the afternoon while I did more
catch up on projects. I had a nice
telephone visit with cousin Dick
Sherwood in Edmonds, Wash., in
the evening. He had a stroke in
one eye and has double vision, but
is improving. Cousin Dave Sher-
wood called and will be coming by
for a visit.
Thursday morning after break-
fast, Bill was on the road to help
Vernon Kemp move his combine
equipment to North Dakota. Terry
Buchert followed along and
brought home Bill and Chad Han-
nrahan, who also helped with the
move, they were back that
evening. Bill got dropped off at
Howes where the motor home is
settled in until field work is done.
Here at home, I was busy getting
a guest room situated and had
dinner cooking when cousin Dave
Sherwood and friend Shirley
Conser arrived. We spent some of
the time going through old family
letters and pictures, but by 5:00
the sky had cleared off and it was
just right for flying, so we took a
birds eye view of the Badlands.
Thursday morning, Ralph and
Cathy Fiedler loaded up and took
Jeanette to the airport so she
could head for home.
Friday was another foggy day.
Dave Sherwood, Shirley Conser
and I had breakfast out, then they
went on their way toward Wash-
ington to visit Shirely’s son and
Dave’s brother and sister. When
the fog cleared, I picked up Derald
Kulhave at the Kadoka Nursing
Home and we went to the airport
for a fly. Derald soloed in 1977, so
he was excited to be airborn again.
Having an artificial leg was a bit
tricky getting in and out, but all
went well and he got to see the
Badlands and the family farm by
Belvidere, as well. Bill was rained
out of the field, so came home. I
attended visitation for Stanley Pe-
terson at the Catholic church here
in Kadoka, then spent the rest of
the evening working on a shirt
Tony Harty visited at our place
Friday afternoon, then attended
the rodeo here in Kadoka in the
Jessica Gittings visited Kelsey
Gittings Friday. George, Sandee,
Kelsey and Jessica Gittings and
Wade McGruder had supper in
town Friday evening.
Friday evening, Ralph and
Cathy Fiedler went to a picnic
supper at a campground near
Spearfish for Loman Hanson’s
ninth birthday. The Don Klumb
family, Quinn and Sue and Shan-
non Regan, and friends of the
Hansons joined the party. The
kids swam before supper. A good
supper and birthday cake was en-
joyed, Loman opened his birthday
gifts, then everyone said their
goodbyes and headed for home.
The Hanson family had a cabin
there, so they spent the night,
along with Hannah and a friend of
Loman’s. Loman’s birthday was
Saturday, August 17. Cathy’s va-
cation ended Friday and she went
back to work Saturday.
Don and Vi Moody continued on
to Prairie du Chien, arriving Sat-
urday, the 17th of August, to visit
Mark and Cindy Hahn who have
a cottage, boat and boat house on
the east shore of the Mississippi
River. Mark is familiar with the
Jackson County area as he has
been hunting at the Moody ranch
for years and stays in Kadoka.
They enjoyed a delightful three-
day stay with boating starting the
first afternoon on the mighty
river. It didn't take long for Mark
to turn the boat driving over to Vi
for the experience and it was! Vi
has driven lots of motorized boats,
but never along side barges with
tug boats! She learned the buoy
navigation system very well be-
fore that was over. Don and Vi
and Mark and Cindy enjoyed driv-
ing over to a nice evening meal at
a combination American Legion
and VFW fundraiser "steak out"
which is every third Saturday
night at De Sota, Wis. Don and Vi
related that it was really neat see-
ing the U.S. Army Corp of Engi-
neers locks and gates closing and
opening to allow these fully loaded
vessels, which happened to be
more than usual that afternoon,
traveling with loads and loads of
long cargo barges through those
gates and going downstream all in
a row. What an education that
was and in their reading, so much
information provided along the
viewing points of interest about
comparison to the economics of
that method of river transporta-
Kelsey Gittings left for Iowa
Saturday morning. She will be vis-
iting her dad, Robin, and brother,
Kinsey, a few days before going to
Lararmie, Wyo., for college. Jody
Gittings helped get some more
hay put up Saturday and Sunday
and had dinner with George and
Sandee both days. Kelly Blair and
Glen and Jackie Radway visited
at the George Gittings home Sun-
day evening.
Saturday, Tony Harty visited
with his niece, Kathy Brown, then
went on to Philip for church. He
visited with Jack and Gayle Rush
and Margaret Rush while in
Philip. He came back home on the
back roads and stopped to visit
with Roy Miller on the way by.
Saturday after breakfast, Bill
and I loaded up the big mower on
our trailer and he took it to Philip
to mow the Civil Air Patrol yard at
the airport. Lee Vaughan has
been so faithful about mowing,
but is swamped with school about
to start, house needing repaired
from the hail and all, so that was
a little help. I headed to Madison,
to visit grandson, Chase and Carly
May, new addition, Talen Hunter,
and enjoy Jaxon, their one-year-
old. We had a nice visit and the
best help I could do was clean the
microwave oven for the kids,
which seems to be something nei-
ther of them enjoys doing. I asked
Chase what else he could use and
the answer was a “nanny!” I think
I make a better granny than
nanny. I continued on to Harris-
burg and got to granddaughter,
Amanda and Adam Claflin’s in
time to pitch in and help get a
primer coat on their sheetrocked
garage walls.
Sunday was an all day travel
day to Pikes Peak lookout and sev-
eral Iowa and Wisconsin state
parks on both sides of the river for
Don and Vi Moody. They also did
some antique shopping and had
lunch and supper at riverside
quaint cafes and deck seating
areas under umbrella shades.
They toured the quaint towns that
still display early buildings from
the late 1800s. Since the days of
the French-Canadian fur traders
in the mid 1700s, three flags have
flown over Prairie du Chein, Wis.,
- French, British, and American.
Don and Vi stayed one day longer
than anticipated, as they wanted
to go on the Miss Marquette river
boat which is docked at Mar-
quette, Iowa. The boat is docked
on the Mississippi River and to
their knowledge is moored perma-
nently there, but it was as close as
they got to the real deal. However,
Mark's boat was just as fun and Vi
had a delightful crew.
Sunday morning, Tony Harty
was on the road to Fruitdale, up
near Belle Fourche, for a Herber
family gathering. About 45 folks
gathered at Allen Hockenbary’s
place. They had good visits, good
food and awards were presented
to the families who had the most
there. Those with the least got a
prank trophy and so a good time
was had by all. Tony arrived home
that evening.
Bill was back at Howes and the
weather cooperated, so they got
three loads of wheat out of the
field Saturday and was hopeful
they would be able to do the same
Sunday morning, I treated Eric
Seager, Chaciel Koscielski and
Amanda Claflin to breakfast in
Sioux Falls. Then it was back to
Amanda’s where a family was
coming to adopt their dad’s dog,
Hunter. Hunter had made his
home with Chase, but two little
fellows in the house plus a big dog
just was not working out. Thank
goodness the family who came to
see if he was their kind of dog, fell
in love with him and he was
plumb contented with them as
well and leaped in their car for the
ride home. A very happy ending
for all. After helping put some of
the texture on the walls it was
time I headed for home. However,
a sign on the highway where I was
gasing up said USS South Dakota
Memorial BB 57. After fueling up,
I pulled in to check out the memo-
rial. It seems that the two items I
received from 1912 on the USS
South Dakota they did not have,
so I will be finding a home for
them there next time I go.
Well, I made it home, took a lit-
tle break by mowing the west half
of our yard, fixed a salad and went
to Howes to spend the night with
Bill. He hadn’t been able to get
any harvest done, and was need-
ing company. There are two out-
houses at Howes, that is the
busiest place around. Folks pull in
all hours of the day and night. I
was looking out our window and
guess who I spotted taking a
break? Andrea and Jerald Cook,
their son, Jeremy, and his girl-
friend. We had a nice visit with
them before they went back to
Rapid City.

This, That & Everything |by Nancy Haigh
This recipe for a homemade ice
pack is good to keep on hand for
an active family. Combine 3 cups
water and 1 cup rubbing alcohol
in a sealable plastic freezer bag. A
few drops of food coloring could be
added for color if so desired. Mix
together well by squeezing with
hands. Be sure to mark what the
bag contains. Place in freezer to
chill. Can be reused many times.
Putting an apple with your
potatos is suppose to keep the
potatos from sprouting.
A website noted that to keep
mosquitoes away put water in a
white dinner plate and add just a
couple of drops of Lemon Fresh
Joy dishwashing soap. The insects
are suppose to be attracted to the
mixture and drown themselves in
it. Kind of like the Dawn dish de-
tergent and water mixture to cap-
ture moths.
If you have one of those floor
cleaners that use a wet pad and
you don’t like the cost or smell, a
reader suggests using baby wet
Make your own baby wipes by
using paper towels with a little
baby soap and water. The select-
a-size paper towels would work
well for this.
In an earlier column I men-
tioned mixing citrus peels with
vinegar for added cleaning power.
Found out the mixture works
wonders for removing paint from
hardware and screws. I put every-
thing in a small plastic bowl and
let it set for a few hours. A brass
brush and a metal dental pick and
the paint came right off. Beware
of metal pick points, they really
hurt when they go up under your
A little oil on your cheese grater
prior to use makes the grating go
a lot easier.
Wine drinking has become ever
more popular in recent years, but
what to do with the corks and bot-
tles? A chilled empty bottle works
well to roll out dough. A quick
search on the Internet for wine
cork uses showed a bunch of
ideas, from making wreaths, rugs
and trivets to covering a wall.
A trick my mom taught me for
whipping cream and egg whites
was to use a stainless steel bowl.
Place the bowl and the mixer
beaters in the freezer for about 30
minutes. The cream and eggs will
whip up faster.
I found a hint that used honey
and powdered sugar instead of
granulated sugar in their
whipped cream. They didn’t give
amounts though.
A suggestion I found was to
spray your mixer beaters with
nonstick cooking spray before
beating a cake mix. It stated the
batter wouldn’t cling to the beat-
ers when done, easy cleanup.
I’ve always coated, probably not
as often as I should though, my
wood cutting boards with veg-
etable or mineral oil. A reader
suggested to warm the wood up
first with a blow dryer as the oil
will then penetrate better. Min-
eral oil is recommended over veg-
etable oil.

(con’t. from last week)
Our weeks continue to be busy
here – lots of mowing, gardening
and cooking for me, and hay mov-
ing and silage cutting for Randy.
Our friend, Bob Spears, is here,
helping to repair some of the dam-
age caused by the heavy rains ear-
lier this summer. He is a wizard
with a backhoe! Our nephews,
Colton and Dylan, have been here
at the farm this summer, but they
have left to prepare for the fall se-
mester of college. We'll sure miss
their help, but I bet my grocery bill
goes down! They are great young
We have company this week –
our daughter, Chelsea, and her
husband, Mike, are preparing to
move to Tampa, Fla., and they are
spending a little time with us be-
fore they leave. I'll miss having
them near by, but Tampa will be a
great place to visit next winter!
This week, I'm grateful for the
green hills and pastures, thanks to
the wonderful rains we have re-
ceived. Last year, it was so terribly
dry that any little passing cloud
caused you to be vigilant for light-
ning caused prairie fires – some
nights it was difficult to sleep be-
cause of the worry. However, that
isn't the case this year! And the
cattle can eat their fill of grass. It
is truly a blessing.
Please go out and make this a
wonderful week! Take time to look
around and appreciate this won-
derful part of the world we are
privileged to live in!
(this week’s news)
Greetings from beautiful, lush,
overcast northeast Haakon
County! What a gorgeous morn-
ing! It will be getting hot today,
but that is what the row crops
need. According to Marge Briggs,
our local weather data collector,
we received 4.33” of rain August 1
- 15, so the crops have the mois-
ture they need – now they need
the heat! All of this moisture has
kept the grass and weeds growing
too, so the riding lawn mower has
been busier than usual this year.
Yesterday, the mower blew a belt,
so it has a bit of a reprieve – how-
ever, the new belt should arrive
The garden continues to grow
like gangbusters! It is beginning
to look like a jungle out there. And
of course, the zucchini is even
more prolific than ever! Fortu-
nately, I saw quite a few friends
and relatives this past week, and
all of them received a gift of zuc-
chini! Thankfully, they were all
happy to get the veggies – at least
I think they were.
Nels and Dorothy Paulson con-
tinue to put up hay and do some
tillage work. Unfortunately, the
disk had a bad break Saturday af-
ternoon, causing Dorothy to miss
the benefit for Terry Schofield.
She took her auction items to
neighbor Polly Bruce, then spent
the rest of the day helping Nels.
When I talked with Dorothy Mon-
day morning, she and Nels were
headed to the welding shop!
Dorothy attended church Sunday.
Lola Roseth was in Philip Tues-
day. She visited her mother, Joy
Klima, at the nursing home. Joy
was a bit under the weather that
day – hope she is feeling better by
now. Lola also took time to vote in
the West Central election. Thurs-
day, Lola was in Pierre for a meet-
Dick and Gene Hudson were in
Philip Tuesday, also. They visited
Dolly Blucher and Marie Ander-
son. In the evening, they had sup-
per and then voted in the West
Central election before returning
home over muddy roads. Wednes-
day, Frank and Shirley Halligan
and Billy and Arlyne Markwed
stopped at Hudson's to take some
cucumbers off Gene's hands.
Randy Neuhauser and Chauncey
Jorgenson stopped that afternoon
for eggs. Thursday evening, Dick,
Gene and grandson, Wyatt, went
to Neuhauser's to get some
chicken feeders and waterers for
their poultry. Sunday, Dick and
Gene were in Midland to attend
the Petoske auction sale. Gene
said there was a great crowd, and
she was happy to come home with
some of the beautiful paintings
that Arline Petoske is known for.
Gene said much of her week was
spent taking care of the yellow
transparent apples – they are now
made into applesauce, ready to be
enjoyed this winter!
Julian and Coreen Roseth were
in Philip Saturday evening to have
supper with their son, Nick, in cel-
ebration of his birthday. Nick's
siblings, Kristin and Adam, and
their families also joined the
group. Sunday, Julian and Coreen
attended the Petoske auction in
Billy and Arlyne Markwed were
in Philip Tuesday for the cattle
sale, and they stayed to vote in the
West Central election. Saturday,
they were in Midland where Billy
helped with auctioneering duties
at the fundraiser for Terry
Schofield. Terry is battling cancer,
and the communities came to-
gether to help raise money to de-
fray expenses. Arlyne said there
was a large, generous crowd on
hand. Sunday, the Markweds were
again in Midland, helping with the
Petoske auction sale.
Frank and Shirley Halligan had
supper in Philip Tuesday, followed
by voting in the West Central elec-
tion. Friday, Shirley attended fu-
neral services for Margie
Oehlerking in Pierre. Sunday,
Frank and Shirley were in Ft.
Pierre to attend a 70th birthday
party for Mike Tibbs. Mike worked
for them years ago. Following the
birthday party, they stopped at the
4-H rodeo. Unfortunately, the
rodeo was over, but they did get to
see Jacob Kammerer and the sad-
dle he won as the bronc riding
champion at this year's rodeo.
Jacob's parents, Joel and Jodi,
work for Halligans. Congratula-
tions to Jacob!
Bill and Polly Bruce were in
Midland Saturday for the
fundraiser for Terry Schofield. Bill
and Polly's son, Vince, stayed with
the Schofields while he was in
high school, and he was one of the
organizers of the successful
fundraising event. Bill and Polly
attended church in Midland Satur-
day evening before returning
home. Their son, David, came from
Rapid City to attend the
fundraiser in Midland, then he
came to the ranch to help for a few
days. He will be returning to
Rapid City mid-week to be on
hand for teacher in-service, be-
cause he will again be teaching a
class at Western Dakota Technical
Institute this fall.
Clark and Carmen Alleman at-
tended the 4-H rodeo in Ft. Pierre
Saturday evening. Granddaughter
Morgan has been enjoying
"Grandma Camp" at Clark and
Carmen's, but she is now back at
her home in Pierre preparing for
school to start. Carmen said
Grandma Camp was a success, but
now she needs a nap to get rested
Joyce Jones took grandchildren,
Mattie and Luke Jones, to Pierre
Monday for allergy shots.
Ray and Nancy Neuhauser had
company over the weekend, be-
cause their family had contestants
in the 4-H rodeo in Ft. Pierre.
Nancy's son, Brett, and his family,
as well as Nancy's daughters,
Sandi and Kathy, were there, and
they all attended the rodeo. Satur-
day, there was an auction sale at
Alice Smith's, who is a neighbor of
Ray and Nancy's. Nancy said there
was a good crowd for the sale.
Chase and Kelly Briggs and
family were in Philip Tuesday.
They enjoyed supper at a local
restaurant and voted in the West
Central election before returning
Congratulations to Kevin
Neuhauser, newly elected member
of the West Central Board of Di-
rectors! He will do a great job. He
and Mary were in Philip Tuesday
evening for the election. Friday,
Kevin was in Pierre to run er-
rands, and he also went to High-
more to visit his mother, Ruth
Neuhauser. He and Mary stayed
in Pierre Friday evening to watch
their son, Nick, play softball, and
they were disappointed that the
opponents forfeited the game be-
cause they didn't have enough
players. Saturday, their daughter,
Sarah, and her friend, Eric Bed-
ney, came to spend the weekend at
the ranch. They spent Saturday
afternoon picking chokecherries
and sweet corn, planning to put it
up for the winter. Sarah and Eric
returned to Sturgis and Spearfish
Sunday night, and Mary went to
Pierre for the work week.
Lee and Mary Briggs went to
Pierre late Sunday evening after
finishing wheat harvest – that is
something to celebrate! Harvest
has been a challenge with all the
recent moisture. Lee attended
South Dakota Telecommunica-
tions Association meetings on
Monday, and Mary joined the
spouses for a tour of the Capitol
and the Cultural Heritage Center.
Mary has worked in the Capitol
for 25 years, but Monday was the
first time she had seen the State
Supreme Court courtroom. A com-
pany is currently removing and
restoring the lead glass windows
in the Capitol , and the tour group
received an explanation about the
process. According to the expert,
the current windows are lead
glass, where the colorations are in
the glass as opposed to stained
glass, where ground up colored
glass is baked into the glass to
give it its color. Interesting! Prior
to going to Pierre on Sunday, Lee
and Mary's daughter, Keva,
stopped by for a brief visit. Keva's
son, Seth, has returned from
Texas where he had been helping
do concrete work with a high
school friend – they were working
with his friend's father. Seth will
be a first year student at Black
Hills State University this fall.
Lee and Mary's granddaughter,
Cattibrie, has been working at the
farm all summer, but she will be
returning to Pierre later today to
start her senior year at T.F. Riggs
High School. Best of luck to all the
young folks as they return to their
Like everyone else in the neigh-
borhood, our week has been busy
as well. Our daughter, Chelsea,
came to the ranch Monday evening
to spend some time before moving
to Florida. Tuesday, Randy,
Chelsea and I had supper in Philip
then voted in the West Central
election before returning home.
Thursday, Chelsea and I took a
road trip. I am generally a very
conservative person, and I am
hardly ever spontaneous. But, our
daughter, Jennifer, called
Wednesday evening. She said that
she and her husband, Ross, were
going to Marshall, Minn., Thurs-
day evening to meet our daughter,
Lori, for supper. Lori lives in
Alexandria, Va., but she was
working in Minnesota last week.
Anyway, long story short, Chelsea
and I drove to Salem, then we
climbed in with Ross and Jennifer
for the trip to Marshall. Needless
to say, Lori was very surprised to
see Chelsea and I when she
walked into the restaurant – her
reaction was priceless! We had a
wonderful time, and it was well
worth it to drive six and one-half
hours for supper! We spent Thurs-
day night in Salem and returned
to the ranch Friday. Randy, in the
meantime, was headed to the Puk-
wana area to look at some machin-
ery. Chelsea's husband, Mike Hoy,
joined us at the ranch Friday, and
then we all jumped in the vehicle
and headed to Kadoka for supper
with my mother, Letoy Brown, fol-
lowed by the rodeo event in
Kadoka that evening. Sunday,
Kevin Neuhauser and his daugh-
ter, Sarah, and Sarah's friend,
Eric, stopped by for a brief visit.
Monday, Chelsea and Mike Hoy
drove to Spearfish to attended vis-
itation services for a friend of
Chelsea's, returning home later
that night. I think I get to stay
home all day today, which is a
good thing! However, I still have
more zucchini to give away, so
maybe I should go visit someone!
This past week, the recipients of
zucchini were Jennifer, Lori, Mom,
Sarah Neuhauser, and Scott and
Corry Neuhauser – that's a suc-
cessful week!
This week, I am grateful for
family. It was so wonderful to
enjoy supper with our three
daughters and our son-in-law,
Ross, last Thursday, and it was
also wonderful to spend a few
hours with my mother Friday. And
having Chelsea and Mike here for
several days is a gift – by the end
of the week, they'll be headed to
their new home in Tampa. The
good news today is that there is a
new non-stop flight from Sioux
Falls to Tampa, beginning in No-
vember. You can be sure I'll be

Proceedings of
Haakon County
Special Session
August 13, 2013
The Haakon County Board of Commis-
sioners met at 10:08 AM on Tuesday, Au-
gust 13, 2013. A quorum was established
with Chairman Stephen Clements, Vice
Chairman Tom Radway, Members
Nicholas Konst and Edward Briggs in at-
tendance. Commissioner Gary Snook
could not attend. Auditor Pat Freeman,
Deputy Auditor Carla Smith, Highway Su-
perintendent Kenny Neville, Highway Ad-
ministrative Secretary Val Williams,
Treasurer Patti Rhodes and Pioneer Re-
view Representative Nancy Haigh were
also present.
The first order of business was to hear
the CHN/WIC quarterly report but CHN
Heidi Burns was out of the office. Her sec-
ond (April, May, June) quarterly report will
be rescheduled for the Tuesday, Septem-
ber 3, 2013, Regular Meeting.
A motion was made by Commissioner
Briggs to approve travel for Librarian
Annie Brunskill to attend the South
Dakota Library Association/Mountain
Plains Library Association/North Dakota
Association Conference in Sioux Falls,
SD, on September 25-27, 2013. The mo-
tion was seconded by Vice Chairman
Radway with all in agreement.
There was discussion on the Highway
Road Trade Agreement between Stanley
and Haakon. Stanley County had re-
ceived a copy of this agreement. Super-
intendent Neville presented it to the
commission for review. It would be pre-
sented to the Stanley County Commis-
sion at their monthly meeting. It will be
presented at the September 3, 2013,
meeting for official approval. This “Road
Trade Agreement” would authorize the
two counties to trade road maintenance,
blade work and snow removal mainte-
nance on some sections of county roads.
The trade would financially benefit both
Haakon and Stanley Counties by saving
travel time to these sections. Each county
would still be responsible for maintenance
of their own culverts, which would be re-
paired or replaced and removal of blow
dirt on these roads. This trade would pre-
vent Haakon County from removing snow
only half way down one road and the
same for Stanley County. One road that
is half in Haakon and half in Stanley will
be maintained only by Haakon County.
Another road that is half in Stanley and
half in Haakon will be only maintained by
Stanley County. This way the completed
road will be open for both county resi-
dents who travel that road. It is just swap-
ping miles to maintain. A complete report
of the Road Trade Agreement will be in
the September 3, 2013, Regular Minutes.
The Special Meeting adjourned at 12:10
PM for lunch and brought to order again
at 1:10 PM.
Auditor Freeman handed out to the com-
mission a report of South Dakota Coun-
ties 2013 Proposed Resolutions and
Policy Statements that will be reviewed at
the 99th Annual Convention being held in
Spearfish, SD, at the Holiday Inn on Sep-
tember 16-18, 2013. They will review
South Dakota Proposed Resolutions,
South Dakota Policy Statements and the
South Dakota Policy Statements Deletion
and Correction List. These resolutions, if
approved by the commissioners at the
convention, will be taken to the legislature
for recommended changes or additions in
Codified Law.
As reported previously Auditor Freeman
informed the commission that all budgets
have been figured using many different
scenarios. Health insurance premiums
were figured using 2011 rates plus a 7%
increase and were figured into all salaries
concerning health insurance. First, the
commission was given a copy of com-
plete revenues received in 2012. First we
must estimate revenues each fund will re-
ceive for the next year. The 2012 also had
the final ACTUAL revenues received. The
figures were very close. The 101 General
was at 99.6% for estimated verses actual
revenue numbers. 201 Highway was at
161.1%. The actual revenues were higher
than the projected revenues because the
SWAP Funds were not projected in the
original estimate. The funds are not a
guarantee each year so cannot be pro-
jected. 2012 SWAP funds received were
$206,528.13. We do not know if we will
get those funds until late spring of the
same year. This was reviewed for all
funds – (101) General, (201) Highway,
(207) 911 Surcharges, (226) Emergency
Management, (229) Domestic Abuse,
(233) Courthouse Building, (248) 24/7
Sobriety and (250) Modernization and
Preservation for Register of Deeds.
The commission now had a complete set
of “estimated verses actual” for revenues.
They were then given the 2013 total year
of “estimated” revenues and the January
1, 2013, thru July 31, 2013, “actual” rev-
enues. So we could see for 2013, we had
received half of the actual revenues. With
this report, we could determine approxi-
mately where we were at in 2013 for rev-
enues. The (101) General was at 54.9%.
The Highway was at 109.1%. Once again
$197,634.57 SWAP money was not pro-
jected in the 2013 estimates because
they are not “regular” revenues received
every year.
Finally the commission reviewed the “pro-
jected” revenues for 2014. Auditor Free-
man was informed by the Department of
Revenue that a close watch would be
kept on the projected revenue for 2014.
This would mean that Haakon County
cannot project more than Growth and CPI
for the taxes received for 2014. The CPI
was at 2.1% and the Growth for Haakon
County was at .094%. That resulted in
only a $28,500 gain in taxes for Haakon
County in 2014. This will hold true for all
those who request tax levies, such as
Haakon and Jackson schools, city of
Philip and town of Midland, Milesville Fire
District and Midland Fire District and
WR/LJ Water District. Each of these enti-
ties could have a different growth amount
but all must adhere to the CPI of 2.1%.
With an agreement on the 2014 income
from revenues, the commission reviewed
the 2013 “Capitol Applied” worksheet to
see if there would be any revenue left
over from this year that would be “undes-
ignated” and could be used for the 2014
year. These are “actual” from January 1,
2013 up to June 1, 2013 and “estimated”
from June 1, 2013 thru December 31,
After this, a final review was completed of
the estimated expenses of each depart-
ment. It was determined to reduce the
201 Highway gravel crushing expenses
from $200,000 to $100,000. The plan is
to crush gravel this fall with a $100,000 of
the SWAP Funds, which will leave ap-
proximately $29,000 left in the SWAP
Fund. We may or may not get SWAP
money in 2014.
It was decided to create a Capital Outlay
Accumulation Account designated for a
car for the Haakon County Sheriff Office.
A motion was made by Commissioner
Briggs and seconded by Commissioner
Konst. Then a substitute motion was
made by Vice Chairman Radway to put
an amount of $10,000 in the capital outlay
account. It was seconded by Commis-
sioner Briggs with all in agreement.
August 13, 2013
WHEREAS, the Board of
County Commissioners de-
posited $10,000 in the Capital
Outlay Accumulation Account
101 – 0 – 276.96 on August 13,
2013 and shall add monetary
support to this fund until such
time there is enough to pur-
chase a vehicle for the Haakon
County Sheriff’s Office.
SOLVED, the Capital Outlay
Account has been established
in order that cash can accumu-
late for the purpose of purchas-
ing a vehicle for the Haakon
County Sheriff’s Office so that
it can be operating at the best
possible efficiency level and to
better serve the residents of
Haakon County.

Auditor Freeman had created a salary
sheet on each individual employee for
several scenarios. The increase in the in-
surance will result in less take home pay
for the employee. There had been three
budgets asking for an increase in time for
an employee. Register of Deeds Traci
Radway had meet with the commission
requesting her half-time deputy be put to
full-time deputy. Librarian Annie Brunskill
had also asked for the Librarian position
to be full time with benefits so it would at-
tract qualified individuals. She stated she
would retire before too long. The Emer-
gency Management position is at 50%
time. She reported that it could be at 75%
time again. So salaries were figured as
the following:
#1 SAME PAY – insurance increase only
– 50% ROD Deputy, 80% LIB, and
50% EM
#2 SAME PAY – insurance increase only
– 100% ROD Deputy, 100% LIB, 75%
#3 SAME PAY – insurance increase only
– 50% ROD Deputy, 80% LIB, 75% EM
#4 $500 PAY – insurance increase only –
50% ROD Deputy, 80% LIB, and 50%
#5 $500 PAY – insurance increase only –
100% ROD Deputy, 100% LIB, 75%
These were not reviewed:
#7 $1,000 PAY – insurance increase only
– 50% ROD Deputy, 80% LIB, and
50% EM
#8 $1,000 PAY – insurance increase only
– 100% ROD Deputy, 100% LIB, 75%
#9 $ 1,000 PAY – insurance increase only
– 50% ROD Deputy, 80% LIB, 75% EM
If health insurance is at the rate budgeted
for, it could cost the employee and reduce
his take home pay. The commission real-
izes this is not the employee’s fault. They
should not be penalized for the increase.
After a review of scenarios #1 thru #6, the
commission agreed on #4 - $500 PAY in-
crease and insurance increase with no
time increase for anyone. 2014 Register
of Deeds Deputy will remain at 50% time
or half-time. The Librarian’s position will
remain at 80% time. The Emergency
Management position shall remain at
50% or half-time for 2014. A motion was
made to approve the 2014 Provisional
Budget by Vice Chairman Radway and
was seconded by Commissioner Konst
with all in agreement.
The next Regular Meeting will be on
Tuesday September 3, 2013, at 1:00 PM
in the Commissioner’s Room at the court-
house. The meeting was adjourned at
3:20 PM.

When an Indiana woman went
to the National World War II Mu-
seum in New Orleans she thought
she might find photos of her high
school sweetheart, a Marine who
was killed in the war. Instead,
Laura Mae Davis Burlingame dis-
covered the diary that Cpl.
Thomas “Cotton” Jones wrote to
her, the Associated Press re-
“I didn’t have any idea there
was a diary in there,” said the 90-
year-old woman from Mooresville,
Before he died from a Japanese
sniper’s bullet, Jones last request
was for whoever found the diary to
return it to the girl he loved.
Jones died September 17, 1944,
the third day of the U. S. assault
on the Pacific island of Peleliu, in
Palau. Jones, in the 1st Marine
Division’s L Company, 3rd Battal-
ion, was among 1,794 Americans
killed on Peleliu and nearby is-
land in a two and one-half month
When Jones went off to war, he
and Davis (as she was known
then) were a couple but were not
engaged. Burlingame isn’t sure
why she never received the diary,
it had apparently been sent to a
sister of Jones’. In 2001, Jones’ ar-
tifacts were donated to the New
Orleans museum.
Fast forward to her visit earlier
this year. Curator Eric Rivet let
her take a closer look, using white
gloves to protect the old papers
from skin oils. It was the first time
in his 17 years of museum work
that he stood face to face with
someone who had been unaware
of their connection to a museum
“I’ve never experienced any-
thing quite like this,” Rivet said.
“I’ve met other people who were
connected to museum artifacts,
but they knew the artifacts were
there. To meet someone who had
no idea that they were featured in
an artifact on display was a
unique experience for me. But it
was truly a pleasure to meet
Laura Mae and to witness the
event unfold.”
As curator, Rivet generally
spends his days focused on the ar-
tifacts. In meeting Burlingame, he
witnessed how his efforts trans-
lated to a powerful human connec-
“Unfortunately, we are at a time
when we’re losing many of the
men and women who have first
hand connections to the artifacts,
so to be able to met Laura Mae
and to be with her as she read
through the diary she gave to Cot-
ton over 70 years ago was a pow-
erful and unique experience for
me,” he said.
Jones wrote his last entry
aboard the USS Maui on Decem-
ber 1, 1943. He described winning
$200 at craps. He had a total of
$320, he wrote, and if he were
back home “Laura Mae & I would
really have a wonderful Xmas.”
He wondered if he could wire the
money to her as a Christmas pres-
The museum provided Burling-
ame a copy of the diary. Museum
officials said she insisted that the
original diary stay in the New Or-
leans museum.
The diary’s four by seven back
cover was nearly filled with her
photograph. The picture itself was
black and white, but the photogra-
pher had tinted her cheeks pink
and her lips dark red. She had
signed it, “Love, Laurie.”

when the accident occurred. An
acid had been put in the freezing
apparatus for cleansing purposes
and when a connection was loos-
ened a gas, made by the mixture

optics will probably be under
bandage for several days. What
probably saved more severe conse-
quences was the fact that the acid
was deluted, Severin said.
