AARP, community blood drives
and others. Family birthdays and
anniversaries are often held at the
center. Fundraising lunches are
held to support the center and its
heating needs.
Currently, the board of directors
consists of Anne Moses as presi-
dent, Marion Matt vice president,
Shirley Parsons treasurer, and
Thelma Heltzel secretary. The
other directors are Gary Steven-
son, Jerry Neville, Philip Pearson
and Crowser. The board meets on
a monthly basis.

Scotchman Industries® has two
new additions to its list of iron-
worker items.
Jerry Kroetch, president of
Scotchman Industries, Inc., said
that the two items are manufac-
tured in Spain. If the products
cannot be made by Scotchman or
even in America, Kroetch believes
that going with a western Euro-
pean source has advantages over
going with sources from other con-
Both items are backed by
Scotchman Industries’ three-year

The SU-280 utility band saw
combines the cutting of a tradi-
tional band saw with the flexibil-
ity, speed and accuracy of a cold
saw. It features a pull-down pivot-
ing band saw mounted on an ele-
vated cutting table similar to the
Scotchman line of cold saws.
Kroetch said that this item
could be of use by many ranch/
farm operations, school shops, ma-
chinery repair shops and other
places. It made its show debut and
was demonstrated at Dakotafest
in Mitchell last week.
Capable of cutting round mate-
rial up to 8.5” in diameter, the SU-
280 offers an increased cutting
capacity and has the ability to cut
ferrous and nonferrous materials
including tubing, solid material,
and structural iron at an afford-
able price. Nonferrous refers to
any materials that do not contain
iron in appreciable amounts.
Standard features of the SU-280
include single mitering head ca-
pale of producing 90 degree, 45 de-
gree, and 30 degree cuts; a quick
action locking vise; and carbide
blade guides with roller supports.
It is available in three-phase and
one-phase models.
The SUP-500 NF is now part of
the company’s circular cold saws
options. It offers an increased cut-
ting capacity not found in similar
Scotchman models. It is an upcut
circular cold saw designed specifi-
cally for cutting nonferrous mate-
rial. The saw features a 20 inch,
120 tooth carbide blade capable of
producing round cuts up to seven
inches in diameter and rectangu-
lar cuts up to 11.75” by five inches.
It is available in 230 volt and 460
volt configurations
Standard features of the SUP-
500 NF include an adjustable feed
rate, mitering capability of 30 de-
gree left and zero degree right,
four pneumatic clamps to secure
material being cut, and integrated
debris collection. Standard safety
features include dual hand opera-
tion and a safety interlock that
will prevent the saw from operat-
ing if the safety hood is not closed.

Anderson was elected president,
O.M. Kiel vice president, Lee
Vaught second vice president, Eva
Shoemaker, secretary, and Mar-
garet Baker treasurer. The four
other directors were Harold Fer-
guson, Laura Eymer, Leo Staben
and Hilda Crawford.
Initially, there were 229 charter
members. Hans Hanson sold the
organization its current building,
which was paid off in 1976. The
center has been self sufficient
since that time. In 1975, Alice
Harren gifted the center with an
air conditioning unit, a deep
freeze and a refrigerator. In 2000,
the building received a new roof.
Four original charter members
are still alive. Dorothy Urban,
Emily Reed and Dorothy Stahl
still attend once in a while.
Heltzel is the fourth.

Lookin’ Around by Syd Iwan
Sometimes you have to “walk
through the valley of the shadow
of death.” Well, we’ve had a few
shadows lurking around this last
week, but we’re all still here. It,
however, was touch and go a few
As it happened, son Chance had
an immunoglobulin (IVIG) treat-
ment a week ago Wednesday.
This medicine, given through his
port, is designed to counter the
muscle weakness and other ef-
fects of his myasthenia gravis. It
is often given for three days every
two or three months. (A port, in
case you aren’t familiar with
those, is a device planted just
under the skin of the chest that
leads to a major blood vessel by
the heart. It is easier than having
to always insert an intravenous
(IV) needle into the arm.) That
first IVIG treatment went okay
except Chance’s temperature rose
later that evening to over a hun-
dred degrees for no apparent rea-
son. We were supposed to have
another of the three-hour treat-
ments the next day, but we de-
cided to wait a bit in case the
temperature rise and the IVIG
were related.
On Tuesday, though, almost a
week later, we gave it another go.
That was apparently a bad idea
since Chance developed a severe
case of the shakes within a half
hour of the start. This did not set
well with me, and I had them dis-
continue the whole thing at once.
I wasn’t sure what was going on,
but I didn’t like it. Chance was
shaking like you would if you
came in from getting thoroughly
chilled in zero-degree weather.
We unplugged the needle and
went home.
Just a bit later, though,
Chance’s temperature started to
rise. At 102, we called the hospital
and said we were coming back.
The temperature rose to over 104
before we got there, not to men-
tion that his heart rate and respi-
ration went way up and his blood
pressure and oxygen saturation
went way down. (We have equip-
ment to measure those things
since they’ve been needed from
past experience.) These are all
signs of shock and can be fatal if
not dealt with straight away, and
sometimes even then. At the local
hospital, they did some tests and
strongly recommended we head to
a larger hospital west by ambu-
lance, which we decided to do. It
was the wee hours of Wednesday
morning when we arrived. We
had originally thought of just tak-
ing Chance in the car by ourselves
but then finally decided on the
ambulance for various reasons.
The ambulance was a good idea
since our boy’s blood pressure
dropped alarmingly, and they
needed to throw on the siren and
flashing light and make tracks. A
crew of five met us at the city
emergency room and went right to
work. They were efficient and
soon had Chance out of the
“scary” category although still not
out of the woods.
From there we went to the in-
tensive care unit (ICU) where
things gradually improved over
the next few days. Antibiotics
were being used to kill off the
Klebsiella bacteria that had some-
how gotten into Chance’s blood-
stream causing what is called
“sepsis.” It can be very serious. By
Sunday, the doctor thought we
could maybe go home in a day or
two depending on how things
went. He then said to remove the
central line in Chance’s neck and
resume using the port for the in-
jection of antibiotics. The central
line, incidentally, was installed
originally in the emergency room
and is a line to a major blood ves-
sel in the chest and capable of de-
livering large amount of fluid and
medicine as needed. On Sunday,
only antibiotics were needed, and
not other things to help blood
pressure and such, so the port
could easily handle that.
Alas, within a half hour of ac-
cessing the port, Chance again got
the shakes. I was confused and
went for a short walk to try to
make sense of it. Then it dawned
on me. The port had gone bad and
was collecting bacteria. If you ac-
cessed it, the bacteria flooded
Chance’s system and set him back
into shock and other places we
didn’t want to go. I rushed back to
Chance’s room and said, “The port
has gone bad! Don’t take out the
central line!” The nurse looked at
me like I’d gone mad, but I stayed
right there to make sure they did
what I said. They did, and further
tests proved I was right. The port
will have to be removed which is
okay. We haven’t needed it a lot,
but it has been handy from time
to time. Chance’s condition im-
proved fairly soon this morning
so, although we may be here a day
or two more than we thought ear-
lier today, we might be on the
right track. There might also be
some bacteria problems with
Chance’s stomach tube and trach,
but at least the port won’t be
pumping poison into his blood-
So, the shadows have cleared
some at present for which we are
quite happy. The rest of that part
of the 23rd Psalm, by the way,
goes, “Yea, though I walk through
the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil for thou art with
me.” As you can see, our Lord has
certainly been with us this past
week, and for that we are ex-
tremely glad. He’s been going
ahead of us, providing good doc-
tors and nurses, and chasing the
shadows away.

Country Praises by Del Bartels
Classes have begun. Students
are trying to break out of the sum-
mer mode. Jobs, chores, vacations,
camps and no homework are
habits difficult to break.
Parents are trying to figure out
what happened to the summer.
They, too, are adjusting to the
daily change from kids at home to
now kids racing off for classes, fol-
lowed by extra curricular activi-
ties, followed by homework.
Teachers are trying to hit the
ground running. Lesson plans are
full, if only assemblies, sports,
school-wide testing, flu season and
other things don’t take away too
many useful class periods. The
town is caught up in the changes
as well. Summer help is gone or
diminished extremely in available
hours, the public swimming pool
is closed, the parks are quiet, and
traffic is now in before-school and
after-school patterns.
The summer reserved some of
its heat to sap wakefulness from
students as they try to listen from
their desks. Dreams of swimming,
fishing, family trips and daytime
television drown out whatever the
teacher is talking about. Air con-
ditioning helps, but not when you
are practicing for football or cross
country. Even the gym during vol-
leyball practice can’t be air condi-
tioned enough. Yawns are
Other things are also hard-hit-
ting when school starts. FFA,
FCCLA, Honor Society, student
council, school pictures and other
concerns demand students’ time.
And, Homecoming preparations
are already needing to be done.
When the day’s last bell rings,
there is not a feeling of rest and
going home. Instead, even as the
student is racing to their next ac-
tivity, they have a worried sense
of forgetting something. Then, fi-
nally, they get home and hit the
couch – for about three minutes.
No real rest yet; there is home-
work, chorus music to review,
band instruments to practice, pa-
perwork to give to their parents.
What, Mom and Dad? What did
I do today? By the time they figure
out a coherent answer, the first
part is already pushing out the
last part in their minds. The sim-
plest response is “nothing,” or
“You know, the usual,” or “I don’t
know.” The sad thing is, they
probably don’t know. Come way
too early tomorrow morning, they
get to do it all over again.
School is good. So is enough
sleep. These might be the best
years of their lives. That could be
said about any groups of years in
their lives. They will learn a lot,
and so will their parents who
mean well while trying to help
their students with homework.
School is fun. So is waking in the
morning completely rested and
feeling ready to tackle the world.
Soon will come the assignments
forgotten until the night before
they’re due; homework that
should have been done on the ac-
tivity bus; meals missed because
of simple exhaustion.
Years from now, each student
will look back on their time in
school. Hopefully, the memories
will be glorious ones. Friendships
were made. New things were ex-
perienced. And, surprisingly,
things were learned. Despite the
daze of the times; the times are
worth it. They will become the
good ol’ days. Now though, the
times are a busy, blurry daze.

CHS fertilizer plant dirt work
Cenex Harvest States – Midwest Cooperative has started at least the ground work for its future fertilizer plant.
An old basement east of the grain elevator was broken down and filled in. The ground has to be leveled so
run-off will go back toward the loading area for containment purposes. According to Jay Baxter, Philip site
manager, plans are for construction crews to begin work around March 1 of next year.

The state’s ACT scores are on
the rise, and despite one of the
highest participation rates in the
nation, South Dakota continues to
see above average performance by
test takers.
Nearly 80 percent of South
Dakota’s 2013 graduates took the
ACT. The students earned an av-
erage composite ACT score of 21.9,
compared to a national average of
20.9. The state average has been
at 21.8 for the past three years.
“The fact that such a high per-
centage of our students choose to
take the ACT, and perform well, is
a good indication that they are
planning on some sort of postsec-
ondary education experience,
which is a must in today’s world,”
said Secretary of Education Dr.
Melody Schopp.
Schopp said educators and par-
ents should be looking closely at
ACT “benchmarks.” A benchmark
score indicates that the student
has a 50 percent chance of earning
a B or higher or a 75 percent
chance of obtaining a C or higher
in the college course.
Of the 2013 S.D. graduates who
took the ACT, 72 percent met the
benchmark in English, compared
to 64 percent nationally. Fifty-two
percent met the benchmark in
reading, compared to 44 percent
nationally. In math, 53 percent of
S.D. graduates met the bench-
mark for college readiness, com-
pared to 44 percent nationally. In
science, 46 percent met the ACT
benchmark, compared to 36 per-
cent nationally.
The ACT is scored on a scale of
one to 36, with 36 being the high-
est possible score. Students are
tested in the areas of English,
mathematics, reading and science.
The test is commonly used by
South Dakota’s ACT scores above average
postsecondary institutions as a
benchmark for college entrance
and readiness.

Winter Wheat Variety
Testing Results
The winter wheat variety test-
ing results is a document highly
anticipated by winter wheat
growers each year. The results
are certainly late in 2013, due to
much of the wheat not emerging
or even germinating until spring,
and a cool and rainy spring and
summer in many parts of the
state. Harvesting the variety
plots was delayed as was the har-
vest for many producers.
As of this writing, not all of the
results have been compiled, nor
updates to the recommended, ac-
ceptable and promising lists. A
temporary publication including
what plots have been analyzed is
available online at: http://igrow.
trial-results/, and at the SDSU
Regional Extension Centers. The
publication also includes the
agronomic characteristics that
are so important in choosing vari-
eties to plant such as lodging re-
sistance, winterhardiness, test
weight, protein content and dis-
ease resistance.
As additional information be-
comes available, the online publi-
cation will be updated as quickly
as possible.
Certified Seed
Grower Directory
Another important document
for winter wheat growers is the
current “Summer Edition” of the
Certified Seed Grower Directory.
Paper copies have been mailed to
SDSU Regional Extension Cen-
ters, and it is typically posted on
the South Dakota Crop Improve-
ment Association and Seed Certi-
fication website at: http://www.
The Certified Seed Grower Di-
rectory includes growers who
have fields planted with Founda-
tion or Registered seed and who
have made application for certifi-
cation. All fields listed in the di-
rectory have passed all
inspections to date. In order to be
finally certified, all seed must
pass all laboratory analysis con-
ducted on representative samples
of the conditioned (cleaned) seed
Challenges in Harvesting
The 2013 small grain harvest
has been challenging in many
areas of the state due to wet
weather and weeds growing in
the crop because of it. As is the
case for many situations in the
farming business, having a plan
in place should various circum-
stances occur can help make im-
portant decisions.
Although the opportunity to
make and implement plans that
would have helped for this har-
vest is past, the 2013 harvest sea-
son was a learning experience.
When weeds begin showing up in
a crop that is mature, or nearly
so; and wet weather is delaying
harvest, a harvest aid herbicide
application may be warranted. If
weather limits the time when
conditions allow harvesting to be
accomplished, incurring the addi-
tional expense of hiring custom
operators to help, and/or harvest-
ing the crop a little wet and pay-
ing drying costs may pay in the
When one considers the lost in-
come due to discounts for reduc-
tions in test weight, high levels of
dockage, shattering, etc., spend-
ing additional money to get the
crop harvested and in good condi-
tion may be well justified.

The South Dakota Country
Music Hall of Fame will be at the
South Dakota State Fair, Sunday,
September 1, to recognize the 10th
anniversary inductees. The event
will start at 6:00 p.m. on the
DakotaLand Stage at Gate 3.
The 2013 inductees are Terry
Stefferud, Teresa Endres, Jerry
Berens, Hailey Steele, Dana
Jensen, Kenny Frey, Don
Quincey, Elva Meyers, Cliff Gul-
likson, Linda Lee, Verne Shep-
pard and the Clay Creek Deaf

The house band will be com-
prised of past inductees Howie
Gamber, Dave Bergquist, Roy
King, Paul Engebretson, Ellie
Mechels, Elaine Peacock, Darrel
“Boomer” Hoiland, Troy “Clancy”
White, Donnie Miller, Wilbur Foss
and special guest Sam Tulio.
Inductees are nominated by
their peers, friends and family.
They are then selected based on
their performances, promotion
and support of country music in
South Dakota. Musicians and per-
formers are selected from around
the entire state.
Two new events are planned for
the 2013 event – an album of the
year category and a bus trip. For
details, visit http://southdakota-
countrymusichalloffame.org/, or
contact the South Dakota Country
Music Hall of Fame at 605-310-
2441 or sdcmhof@southdakota-
The hall of fame is a nonprofit
organization and all work is done
on a voluntary basis. It relies pri-
marily on donations for its sup-
port. South Dakota merchants
and vendors are used for the busi-
ness needs whenever possible, and
is the organization’s way of sup-
porting South Dakota.
The hall of fame also helps pro-
mote music programs for elemen-
tary schools in the state. During
the past year, support went to four
schools and the Yankton Chil-
dren’s Choir. Several fundraisers/
music festivals were held with
proceeds split between the area
school and the South Dakota
Country Music Hall of Fame.
Some of the youngsters have per-
formed on stage with the hall of
famers. There will be a group of
youngsters debuting at the South
Dakota State Fair festivities.
Without the venues, none of this
would be possible. They support
the country musicians and bands,
and support country music in
their communities.
Fans are the greatest and most
important element in all of this.
Their loyalty and support is gra-
ciously appreciated. They also
help work the events, give sugges-
tions and help out in any way they
can to continue to help the organ-
ization be successful.
The board of directors for the
hall of fame are Sara Sandwick,
Dorothy Miles, Jodee Harris and
Chair Wini Iverson. Assistants
are Sandi Vander Wal, Ellen
Robertson and Mary Gorrell,
along with many other volunteers
who help with events and prepa-

Hall of Fame 2013 inductees
Eight South Dakota beef pro-
ducers serving leadership posi-
tions on the national level recently
returned home from the 2013 Cat-
tle Industry Summer Conference
in Denver.
The conference, which included
sessions of both the Federation of
State Beef Councils and the Cat-
tlemen’s Beef Board, celebrated
the 50th anniversary of the feder-
ation. National leaders also dis-
cussed how to effectively maneu-
ver the challenges facing the beef
industry, including the reduced
cattle inventories and subsequent
drop in checkoff dollars due to a
continuing drought in parts of the
United States.
Those attending the summer
conference included federation di-
rectors Ed Blair, Vale, and Becky
Walth, Glenham, as well as Scott
Jones, Midland, Karla Pazour,
Pukwana, and Gary Deering,
For South Dakota producers,
listening to leaders from states
caught up in the drought was a
lesson in what might have been.
“In South Dakota, because of last
year’s drought, we began seeing
movement of cattle out of the state
in mid-April,” explained Ron Fred-
erick, Mission, executive director
of the South Dakota Beef Industry
Council. “Fortunately, we began
receiving rains in May and cattle
numbers have stayed pretty
steady since then.”
It is a different story in states
like Texas, California and Ne-
vada, said Blair, SDBIC presi-
dent, who sat in on a panel of state
beef council executives and volun-
teer leadership who discussed
modifying their efforts in light of
decreasing revenues and increas-
ing industry promotional needs.
“We’ve seen our checkoff receipts
stay pretty steady in South
Dakota,” he explained, “allowing
us to direct some of those dollars
to reach more consumers in high
population, low cattle number
states like New York and Pennsyl-
In other business, South
Dakota’s representatives partici-
pated in all four committees that
are part of the new joint commit-
tee structure outlined in the Long
Range Beef Industry Plan. The
committees – Global Growth, Beef
Image, Freedom to Operate and
Domestic Consumer Preference—
received funding proposals from a
number of checkoff contractors, in-
cluding the National Livestock
Producers Association, National
Cattlemen’s Beef Association,
American National Cattle-
Women’s Association, Meat Im-
porters Council of America, and
the North American Meat Associ-
ation, a new group representing
the veal industry.
“Many of these were excellent
funding proposals,” said Freder-
ick, adding that the CBB Operat-
ing Committee, which meets in
September to adopt a budget for
2014, will have a tough job in de-
ciding which contractors will re-
ceive funding and for how much.
“They will be trying to stretch a
$40.7 million budget, a nearly six
percent reduction from FY2013, in
the areas of promotion, research,
consumer education, industry in-
formation and foreign marketing.”
Helping make those decisions
will be Linda Gilbert, Buffalo, a
member of the 10-person CBB del-
egation, and Walth, a member of
the 10-person Federation of State
Beef Councils delegation. Both
delegations make up the CBB Op-
erating Committee.
South Dakota has, for many
years, been well represented on
the national level, said Blair, who
sits on the new Global Growth
Joint Committee. “It means we
have a seat at the table where de-
cisions concerning the Beef Check-
off Program are made.”
The SDBIC collects and admin-
isters the one dollar beef checkoff
on cattle sold in South Dakota.
Checkoff dollars are used strictly
for promotion, education or re-
search programs. Fifty cents of
every dollar is directed to the Cat-
tlemen’s Beef Board for programs
on the national level. The SDBIC
retains 50 cents, which is invested
in additional national programs or
in-state programs.
The SDBIC is comprised of
three representatives from eight
agricultural organizations: S.D.
Beef Breeds Council, S.D. Cattle-
men’s Association, S.D. Cattle-
men’s Auxiliary, S.D. Cattle
Women, S.D. Farm Bureau, S.D.
Farmers Union, S.D. Livestock
Auction Market Association and
S.D. Stockgrowers Association.

Friday, August 16, at Somerset
Court, Ray Kraemer’s daughter-
in-law, Susan Kraemer, Rapid
City, took him to Sturgis to the
threshing bee. They reported that
it was great fun to see all the old-
time grain separators and even
frog hopping and turtle races.
A bunch of us from Somerset
Court went on a bus trip to the
Outdoor Campus. It is a beautiful
building on acres of woodsy
grounds with ponds, waterfalls,
fish, and a museum of taxider-
mied South Dakota animals. And
we could even touch them! There
were slide shows of South Dakota
animals in action. There was a
gentle caressing breeze – an ideal
day. Thank you for a fine trip.
Chuck Allen, Philip, sent a rare
photo of a killdeer fluffed out de-
fending its nest. There was also a
picture of a mostly red house finch
by his bird feeder. Thank you,
Chuck. If I can get it copied I will
put it in the Somerset Court
We welcome our new resident,
Margaret Olson. We hope that you
like it here, Margaret. Marg has
two daughter, Phyllis Andrews,
Phoenix, Ariz., and Nancy New-
man, Culver City, Calif., who were
helping her getting settled in her
new apartment at Somerset
Happy birthday to my great-
granddaughter, Delilah Allen,
Fountain, Colo., Saturday, August
17, 2013.
Happy birthday to Irene McK-
night on August 17, 2013. Somer-
set Court staff brought her an
individual birthday cake and sang
happy birthday to her. They also
gifted her with a card, Somerset
bucks and meals. Irene McK-
night’s son, Don, who lives in
Sturgis, has for several years,
about this time of year, gone to
Colorado and brought back a load
of those wonderful peaches. He
and his wife take orders and peo-
ple of their church deliver the
peaches. All the money collected
from the peaches goes to their
church’s boys’ and girls’ clubs.
Saturday afternoon, a group of
us at Somerset Court played five
crowns for a couple hours.
The May - June issue of the
Conservation Digest, put out by
the Department of Game, Fish
and Parks, has an article about
the reintroduction of the peregrine
falcons to western South Dakota.
Peregrine falcons were native
here up until around 1970, when
a combination of pesticide use and
loss of livable habitat had nearly
wiped out the population. Pere-
grine falcons are said to be the
fastest creatures on earth, with a
plummeting speed of a possible
200 miles per hour. They do well
in cities because the tall buildings
give them elevation from which to
dive. They may even be seen in
Rapid City.
Another story I liked in that
same magazine is called “Mar-
velous Martin Migration.” Mar-
tins like to live in big groups
called colonies. They fly from
South Dakota to South America
for the winter, and return to their
same nest in the spring. Their
routes have been traced by the aid
of electronic geolocators. You can
see this magazine in the Somerset
Court activity garden.
August 18, my son, Wayne,
brought over three of those little
perch all fried and still hot. I ate
one right then and there. Thank
you, Wayne, those are the best.
Thank you, Maxine Kilmer, for
lending the music to “Comin’
Round the Mountain” and “Red
River Valley.”
On August 18, we had church
with Steve, Jack and Terry. We
had better get used to thinking
that God is not just an old man
with long white whiskers. God is
the power that makes everything
tick. We like to think that we have
a little of that power built into us.
So it is up to us to use it for good
as we see it. That is why it is so
important for children to get the
right ideas about what is good so
they will know what to do. We
have a fairly clear set of rules.
They are all directions on how to
treat other people. One hymn that
we sang was “What If It Were
Today?” That music had some
tricky left hand notation which
Jack handled skillfully.
Goldenrods are in their glory
and the five decorated trees on the
north side of Somerset Court are
loaded with bundles of red berries.
Vivian Hansen had company
from Riverton, Wyo., Monday, her
granddaughter, Ginger (Denke)
Bennett, her husband, Matt Ben-
nett, and their one-year-old
daughter, Delores. They had been
to an 80th birthday party for Gin-
ger’s aunt, Cerella Overgaard, at
some town in Wyoming, Shoulp or
something like that. Cerella is a
sister of my son-in-law, Don
Denke, of Pavilion and of Gay
Logan, Philip. Gay Logan, Marvin
Denke and Byron Denke were
there too, as well as numerous
nieces and nephews. I enjoyed get-
ting acquainted with Delores Ben-
nett. Delores liked the big ball, the
pool balls, the rocking horse and
the big carpeted halls to run in.
After lunch, they left for Craw-
ford, Neb., where they planned to
spend the night on their return
trip to Riverton. Thank you for
your visit. In the afternoon, I was
pleasantly surprised to receive a
beautiful foliage plant from the
Bennetts. It seems to be a succu-
lent, and I hope to phone the
florist and ask about it. It had a
natural looking bird in a tiny nest,
and a big pinky/orange ribbon
bow. I took photos.
My neighbor, Irene McKnight,
invited me over to see her bouquet
of 24 yellow hothouse roses in n
ornate bowel. Thank you, Irene, it
was a joy to see your roses. Irene
gave me a Colorado peach too.
I invited Shirley Horn over to
see my new plant, and then she
invited me to her apartment to see
her piano. It is a beautiful Wurl-
itzer. She also has a lovely Somer-
set Court patio. Thank you for
having me over, Shirley.
Gwynn Hansen came over and
we had a good game of scrabble
and she stayed for supper. She
was on her way to a quilter’s guild
business meeting.
Thanks, Addie Rorvig, for the
use of your book, “The Lost
August 20, I called Fancies
Flowers to ask the name of the
pretty plant that Ginger and her
family sent me. The gift shop said
the plant is commonly called the
goldfish plant because its blooms
all over it with orange blossoms
shaped like goldfish. Its botanical
name is nematanthus gregarius.
It likes indirect light, and does not
like to get dry.
Tuesday, August 20, we had a
musical presentation by Doris
Marie Strom. She had wonderful
mastery of piano music and a
great set of vocal chords. I don’t
think I had ever heard the unicorn
song but Pa used to sing one about
the monkey who sat on the ele-
phant’s trunk, combing his
auburn hair, and the elephant
sneezed and fell on its knees and
what became of the monk?
August 21 at Somerset Court,
we had the dunk tank for a good
share of the afternoon. Quite a few
of the staff members volunteered
to be dunked. They took half an
hour shifts. Thank you. We took a
lot of photos. Jamie and Jeremy
Hostutler signed on the entertain-
ment crew with regular staff to
throw the balls. Balls were three
for five dollars and we should have
raised a nice amount for the Spe-
cial Olympics. Many residents
came out to watch. The day was
ideal, warm, calm and a little
At 5:30, the crowd gathered for
the fish fry in the courtyard with
a nice group of visitors and
Skeeter and his band played for us
throughout the dinner. Thanks for
the music. The staff had set up ta-
bles and the chefs had prepared
an ample dinner with fish, hush
puppies, wedgies, coleslaw, lemon-
ade, wine coolers and for dessert
there were ice cream cones with
nuts. Thank you Somerset Court
and all the staff who organized
and carried out a very successful
fish fry. The dunk tank activity
carried on after supper. I saw a lot
of staff who had been wet. I
watched Amber get dunked 16
My granddaughter, Sheridan,
and children and my daughter-in-
law, Gwynn Hansen, were among
the many guests at the fish fry.
Thank you for coming. Gwynn
stayed for a game of scrabble and
we had a little-used word, gigot (a
leg of lamb.) Gwynn said we could
go to the Central States Fair
Thursday. There is a demonstra-
tion in the Fine Arts Building that
she would like to see. Nice of her
to invite me along.
Thursday, August 22, Gwynn
took me along to the Central
States Fair. We toured the Fine
Arts Building and there I saw my
old spinning teacher, Connie
Hedeen. She was spinning and
she had two new knees! There
were some variety spinners, one
making yarn with lumps on pur-
pose! We saw dozens of intricate
quilts, cross stitch, knit, crochet
and even a tatted wedding dress
made for a Barbie doll. Gwynn
watched a demonstration by Patty
Groyczyk of folded Christmas tree
Patty Groyczyk is from Rapid
City and her mom is Somerset
Court resident, Jane Burch. Patty
and Donna and Tom McQuade of
San Diego were at supper at Som-
erset Court August 22. Donna is
Dot Busfield’s daughter.
At the fair there was a big build-
ing of maybe a hundred varieties
of chickens and other poultry, very
noisy and there were also some
rabbits. We saw some women
doing blacksmithing – big iron
numbers 6419 or some such. They
had a forge and an anvil, sledge
hammers and a barrel of water.
My niece, Wanda, wrote that
the new South Dakota magazine
has stories about local pilots. One
is about our friend, Marsha
Sumpter, Kadoka, and one is
about her friend from Hartford
who is 90 years old and still flying.

Fair season is here and it’s come
faster than we all imagined. Our
kids are already hauling them-
selves back to school and hitting
the books, and we’re all trying to
squeeze just a little bit more of
summer out of each day. Many
families across South Dakota, in-
cluding mine, are also flocking to
the local fair for a day or evening
full of rides and delicious food.
Our state’s fair tradition re-
minds me how lucky I am to call
South Dakota home. These fairs
have become much more than a
night out with family and friends.
Kids from all around our state
showcase their talents through
cattle shows, baked goods and rop-
ing competitions. Bryon and I take
our three kids, Kassidy, Kennedy
and Booker, out to taste test,
cheer on riders and walk through
the livestock barns. I continue to
be amazed by the hard work and
dedication that some of our kids
put into raising and showing their
animals. It is a wonderful display
of our state culture and commu-
Fairs also give us a unique op-
portunity to reconnect with South
Dakotans from all walks of life.
Just the other day, I was remem-
bering the many nights Bryon and
I walked cattle around the state
fairgrounds in Huron in the mid-
dle of the night, allowing the cat-
tle to release some pent-up energy
from the day’s show. Sometimes,
these moments feel like they just
happened yesterday and they are
so special to me, which is why I
will continue to bring my family
out to some of the best gatherings
our state has to offer.
I was recently in Rapid City for
the Central States Fair and had a
great day meeting and talking
with folks from all across the
state. My daughter, Kassidy,
came along with me and we en-
joyed making new friends, sam-
pling some good food on the
midway, and good entertainment
at the rodeo that evening.
If you haven’t had the opportu-
nity to make a trip to a fair this
year, I hope you’ll consider joining
me at the South Dakota State Fair
in Huron on Friday, August 30. I’ll
be hosting a town hall at the
Women’s Building with House
Agriculture Committee Chairman
Frank Lucas at 11:00 a.m. CDT
and would love to hear what’s on
your mind.
No matter which county or local
fair is in your area, all fairs pres-
ent a unique opportunity to create
lasting memories with friends,
family and the entire South
Dakota community. I hope to see
you at a South Dakota fair some-
time soon.

84 Years Ago - August 22, 1929
One of the saddest accidents it
has been our duty to chronicle, oc-
curred near Philip last Sunday
evening about seven o’clock when
Eula Adams, the eldest daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. R.E. Adams, promi-
nent merchants of this city, met
with her death while riding with
friends. The young people had left
but a few minutes before for a short
pleasure ride, six of them in a light
car belonging to and driven by
Philip Larson. They were driving
on the road southwest of town
when it is thought a wheel broke
causing the car to turn over. Eula
received a fractured skull and died
shortly afterward. The other occu-
pants of the car, Gladys and Mar-
gurite Carr, Maxine Hanlon and
James Carr received only slight in-
juries. Eula was 15 years old.
Fashion decrees longer skirts
and high waistlines … Shirt hems
and waistlines are going in oppo-
site directions, according to the fall
fashion forecasts. Manufacturers
are making skirts about four
inches below the knee, giving a line
that is new, but not startling, and
belt lines are being slightly raised.
The silhouette is quite varied, the
straight boyish lines are not so pop-
ular. Coats are flared and draped,
while skirts are full, with tiers of
ruffles. Peplums are in evidence on
many of the waistline dresses. Hats
are small and the early fall mode
gives preference to velvets. Popular
colors are gay reds, deep orange or
beige, with browns being shown in
sports wear and black for the after-
noon. Printed materials continue to
be good and velvets in both plain
and prints are being shown.
A wedding of interest to Philip
residents occurred at Denver, Col-
orado, this week when Katherine
Elizabeth Simpson a former in-
structor in the Philip high school
became the bride of Philip B. Ram-
sey, the son of Dr. and Mrs. Guy
Ramsey of this city.
Clifford L. Putnam part owner of
the Philip Oldsmobile Co., of this
city passed away at the home of his
wife’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. W.R.
Smith, at Mitchell, Thursday, Au-
gust 22nd.
A new county library project is
well under way in this county
under the direction of County Su-
perintendent Jennie O’Neal. The
new plan will supply the teachers
and the pupils throughout the
county with a good supply of read-
ing and reference books at little
cost to anyone.
75 Years Ago - August 25, 1938
Complete weather data for the
Inland Airlines, Inc., a regular air-
plane route running from Spearfish
to Pierre at a point 30 miles north
of Philip is being furnished four
times daily, it was reported this
week by Leo J. Staben, U.S
weather bureau observer who is
stationed one-half mile from an
emergency landing field located
seven and one-half miles northeast
of Milesville.
The emergency landing field was
approved by the federal depart-
ment of air commerce about six
weeks before the route was opened
to airplane traffic April 14.
Two new teachers named to
serve the Philip school. The new
Latin, English and jounalism
teacher will be Miss Borghild
Mehlen of Harvey, N.D., who hold
a B.A. degree from St. Olaf College
of Northfield, Minn.
Franklin D. Stone of Westhope,
N.D., is the other new instructor.
He will teach English, history, pub-
lic speaking, and will be coach of
the debate team.
Billsburg News … Mr. and Mrs.
Joe Gebes are the parents of a baby
boy at (New) Underwood August
18. Joe and Jerome drove to Under-
wood to see Mrs. Gebes and the
Word of the marriage early this
month of Coral May Radley,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. L. Radley
of Philip, to Marshall Sloan was re-
ceived here this week. The cere-
mony was performed in Huron.
A search for the Radley girl had
been instituted by Sheriff Frank
Slocum late in July, when it was
reported that she had disappeared
on or about July 25. Sloan, a tran-
sient, gave his address as Philip in
applying for a marriage license,
Huron authorities advised Sheriff
Only one letter has been received
from the girl since she left Philip
and her whereabouts early this
week were unknown.
Refusing to let his blindness
handicap him, Kelton (Duke) Ben-
ton, 24-year-old Mystic man, has
become an expert miner. He
doesn’t need to see the flakes of
gold to know that they are in his
riffles and gold pan. He can tell by
the sound that it makes when it is
scratched with a bit of tin or rock.
Gold has a dull sound when
scraped, while other metals have a
gritty sound.
Moenville News … Our mail car-
rier, Frank Dinsmore, had one of
those extra proud smiles on last
Saturday and was he complaining
about how slow his Model A
seemed to travel and all because he
was the proud daddy of a little
daughter born to them in the
Pierre hospital August 20.
50 Years Ago
August 22, 1963
Much excitement was created at
Lake Waggoner last Sunday when
the 1963 Chevrolet station wagon
owned by Gay Moses and driven by
his wife, Ann, rolled into the lake.
Mrs. Moses had taken the chil-
dren to the lake for swimming and
had parked the vehicle in the park-
ing area immediately up from the
lake’s beach and swimming area
and was enjoying the afternoon
when the station wagon decided to
take a swim also. It evidentally
was not braked, or the transmis-
sion was not locked in park, as it
came down the gentle incline
through the beach at an estimated
5 miles an hour and into the lake,
floating about 15 feet into the lake.
Swimmers were on hand and
floated it back towards shore where
the front end of the vehicle came to
rest in about 4 feet of water.

August weather is officially
here with temperatures in the
upper 90s to low 100s. From the
sounds of things, it is going to be
that way the rest of the week.
Across the bottom of the television
screen were a number of early
school closings due to the heat ad-
visory for today. As I walked to
the post office this Monday morn-
ing, there was that familiar sound
of kids laughing and playing at re-
cess. Summer vacation is over and
school is in session for another
year. I know it’s been said before
and will be said again and again,
but honestly, where does the time
go? It seems not long ago I heard
those voices out at recess on the
playground. All in all, it’s been a
good summer. Spring started out
cool and very dry, making folks
wonder what lay ahead, some sell-
ing a part of their cattle herd, oth-
ers all of their cattle. And then the
rains started and with those rains
the country became lush and
green. It was awesome! How good
it is to see all those bales of hay
scattered across the prairies. With
all of that hay it makes one won-
der if we are in for a tough winter.
But, I mustn’t get ahead of myself;
time will tell what winter will
bring. And those fall crops are
looking good. The first half of Au-
gust gave us fall like days and
then came the sun and the heat. It
is 2:00 o’clock and the tempera-
ture is 100 degrees and rising. Au-
gust is here and it’s letting us
know it still has a punch to it.
Makes one truly thankful for air
With the beginning of school
comes the school lunch menu. I
will start with September as the
month of August will be finished
by the time the paper comes out.
Monday, September 2: No
school, Labor Day.
September 3: Italian Dunkers,
Veggie, Fruit and Milk.
September 4: Spaghetti, Veg-
gie, Fruit and Milk.
September 5: Corn Dogs, Veg-
gie, Fruit and Milk.
September 6: Chicken Enchi-
ladas, Veggie, Fruit and Milk.
Free Day will be in Midland on
September 21, so mark your cal-
endar. An ice cream social was
held at Midland’s city park Mon-
day evening giving parents and
kids a fun time of being together
and also giving those parents with
kids who are new to the school a
chance for getting acquainted. The
Midland school was also recog-
nized for being rated number one
in the state of South Dakota for el-
ementary schools. Superintendent
Jamie Hermann, Elementary
Principal Jeff Nemcek and High
School Principal George Seiler
and Karen Byrd and Kristie Stone
of the Kadoka School and some
members of the school board were
there for the ceremony in which
they recognized teachers, stu-
dents, staff, parents and commu-
nity individually for their part in
making this happen. Congratula-
tions Midland School!

Reminder: Midland Commu-
nity Library returns to back-to-
school hours beginning August
28 – Wednesdays and Thursdays
from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Librar-
ian Karel Reiman is happy to re-
port it has been a good summer
with a number of folks and kids
coming to check out books and
DVDs and videos.
Over the years, Smokey and
Arline Petoske did up scrapbooks
with local history. Those scrap-
books are now in the Midland Li-
brary and have been looked
through by a number of people,
myself being one of them. What
makes it nice is on the outside of
the cover it has the years and
what is in each of those scrap-
books. For instance: Class of 1935
– Midland Public Schools addition
to the Midland Mail newspaper;
obituaries – from the 1950s to
1970s; from 1990s to the year
2000; obituaries and general news
from 1936 – 1946; news items
from 1955 – 1970 of weddings, an-
niversaries, babies and historical
items of interest; and YCL and
school history book from the
Pheba #6 country school from
1941 – 1942 when Arline Nelson
was their teacher and later be-
came known as Arline Petoske. In
looking through that scrapbook,
you can tell Arline is an artist – it
came through in the art projects of
her students.
Another point of interest is of a
fellow who recently came to Mid-
land looking for the roots of his bi-
ological family. He had felt for
some time he was adopted, and
learned that he was indeed
adopted and that his grandmother
had lived in the Midland area at
one time. An obituary of his
grandmother was found in one of
those scrapbooks, but that is for a
later date as there is too much to
the story to do it justice in my
new’s column for this week.
Following the Smokey and Ar-
line Petoske auction sale a week
ago Sunday, Marcia (Nelson)
Jackson visited and spent the
night at the home of friend, Judy
Daly. Marcia lives in Hot Springs,
is enjoying retirement, and does
some volunteer work at the Mam-
moth Site at Hot Springs, with all
of its history. The next day, Judy
and Marcia went to Philip where
they picked up Judy’s mom, Marie
Anderson, at Silverleaf Assisted
Living and all went out to lunch.
Karel Reiman was also in Philip
that day and learned Marcia was
in town, so stopped to say ‘hi’ and
was invited to eat lunch with
them. Karel and Marcia having
worked together at the Midland
school a number of years, enjoyed
a time of sharing memories of
those days. Marcia also visited her
sister, Arline Petoske, at the
Philip Nursing Home. Before
heading home to Hot Springs,
Marcia drove to the home of Mar-
tin and Vera Nelson having a good
visit and spending the night.
Heading for home, Marcia made a
stop at Silverleaf having a chance
to see LaVonne Wheeler, Pierre,
who was there visiting her mom,
Marie Anderson.
Randy and Holly Nemec and
Tyler and Angel Nemec, Tukker
and Emry, camped at Palmer
Gulch over the weekend to cele-
brate Emry and Tyler's birthdays.
Chelsee, Addison and Joey Rankin
joined the group and Addison cel-
ebrated her fifth birthday Thurs-
day as well with a party at her
Murdo home. The campground
was a perfect place for the party
and joining them were the Or-
tliebs of Sturgis, Angel's dad, Greg
DuBois, Pierre, Brent, Arin and
Gunner Diedrich, Pierre, Angel's
mom and stepdad, Al and Rita
Weatherbee, Rapid City, and her
aunt and uncle, Brad and Carrie,
Rapid City. The group returned
home Sunday. Happy birthday
wishes to everyone.
Shorty and Maxine Jones had
dinner at Kadoka last Sunday, en-
joying visiting with Scott and Di-
anne (Olson) Huber, then drove to
the Prairie Homestead at Cactus
Flat to attend the book signing for
the new novels by Joyce Wheeler
and Jan Cerney. Maxine reports
we are pretty fortunate to have
several local writers of interesting
Christian based, history focused
novels which appeal to people of
many ages, in this general area.
Clarice Roghair had some of her
books at Midland Market last
week, too.
Sunday, Bruce and Linda
Kroetch, Eleanor Kroetch and
Marie Anderson were at Judy
Daly’s for a birthday party for
Julie (Kroetch) Daly. Having
planted a field of sunflowers on
their land near Belvidere, Judy
took the Philip folks for a drive to
see that field with its colors of yel-
low. Mother Nature’s moisture
has been a true blessing and be-
cause of that moisture those many
sunflower fields are an awesome
sight to see. The fact that sunflow-
ers are not a normal crop for this
area, added to the awesomeness of
those sunflower fields of yellow. A
memory maker of this summer to
be sure. Times change, nothing
stays the same. And isn’t it good
that it doesn’t? Experiencing new
and different things keeps life in-
Shorty and Mickey Woitte have
been enjoying having members of
their family home for a time.
Shorty and Mickey’s daughter,
Robin Optiz, and her husband,
Josef, Harwood, N.D., bought the
former Cliff and Joy Phillips
house, which is just across the
alley from her folks. At this point,
they plan to keep their home in
North Dakota, so will spend time
at both places. Kandi Nelson,
Sioux Falls, came for a three-day
stay, enjoying visiting folks at
Midland Market in the city park
Friday and buying some of that
delicious home grown garden pro-
duce. Saturday, Rex and Linda
Woitte came from Rapid City hav-
ing a chance to see everyone. Joe
and Bobbi Woitte’s daughters,
Kelly and Don Maugiri and girls,
Syracuse, N.Y., and T.J. and
Kevin Combs and girls, Rapid
City, came for a visit. Joe, Bobbi,
Kelly and family and T. J. and
family headed for the Oahe Down-
stream Campground outside of
Pierre Thursday for some family
time of camping, boating and fish-
ing on the Oahe. They headed
back to Midland Sunday and have
plans for touring in the Black
Hills before everyone has to head
back home.
Jon Jensen lives at Richmond,
Va., and he and his daughters,
Jadyn and Jacey, are spending
some time with Jon’s folks, Clint
and Brenda Jensen, grandma and
grandpa to Jadyn and Jacey.
August 16, with Cassidy Trapp
as chauffeur, she and her grand-
parents, Jerry and Joy Jones,
headed for Johnson, Minn., for the
50th wedding anniversary of Paul
and Marilyn Gillaspie. Jerry and
Paul became friends while serving
in the Army together. Joy reports
it was great having a chauffeur –
she and Jerry could just sit back
and enjoy the scenery. On the way
to Minnesota, they stopped in Ab-
erdeen having a nice visit with
former longtime resident of Mid-
land, Verna Lammon. As some of
you know, Verna moved to Ab-
erdeen some time ago and lives
with her son, Tom Lammon, and
his wife, Joni. Verna sends greet-
ings to her friends in Midland.
Heading for home Sunday, August
18, Jerry, Joy and Cassidy met
Lani (Jones) Olson and daughter,
Molly, at a restaurant in Pierre,
having breakfast together, after
which Jerry, Joy and Cassidy
headed for Midland and Lani and
Molly headed for Devil’s Lake,
N.D., where Lani teaches school
and Molly will be a first grader.
Friday, August 23, Cassidy and
Joy left for Rapid City moving
some things into the new college
dorm room Cassidy will be staying
at during her second year at South
Dakota School of Mines and Tech-
nology. Joy reports the dorm is
real nice, Cassidy’s room is on the
ground floor and first door on the
right or left, not sure which. And,
to top it off, her parking spot is
right out front of the dorm where
she stays. So, she is all set. Cas-
sidy’s folks, Mike and Debbie
Trapp, her brothers and sister
came with a load Saturday, help-
ing get Cassidy settled in. Follow-
ing the auction sale of Smokey
and Arline Petoske, Dick and
Gene Hudson stopped at Joy and
Jerry’s. Gene gave Joy one of Ar-
line’s paintings she had bought at
the auction sale. Unable to be at
that auction sale, Joy said she was
doubly blessed when her friend
gave her a painting of Arline’s,
which is known for her beautiful
works of art.

Midland Market fun
The fun and games night, Friday, August 16, at the Midland Market
was a busy evening. The inflatable castle went over well with the
younger folk. The kids themselves decided, for safety sake, to take
turns between the older ones (seven years old and older) and the
preschool to six year olds. The ladder golf game also added enter-
tainment to the farmer’s market booths. One of the venders, Cedar
Creek Gardens, brought a small refrigerated trailer full of produce
such as tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, cucumbers, watermelons, can-
taloupes, beans and sweet corn. The Midland Market is planning
to be open each Friday evening through September, and maybe
into October. Vendors may bring produce and crafts. Some cus-
tomers are looking ahead to the upcoming holiday seasons.

Nursing home garden harvest
Recently, the Philip Nursing Home residents have been harvesting tomatos and cucumbers almost every day from
the courtyard’s elevated flower beds. The beds are in memory of Edna Mednansky, with materials donated in her
name and construction done by Doug Hauk’s vocational agriculture and FFA students. Shown are Mary Kennedy,

We have had a few showers this last week but with
the extended forecast of heat and wind it will soon dry
us out again. Some who are still combining appreciate
the drier weather so they can get the harvest done. It
will soon be time to cut millet and corn. Some of the
corn really looks good out in this area. Some around
us missed the hail we got.
Some of the hailed out crops are coming back, but I
don’t know if they will grow enough to make hay. But
they will make grazing for the livestock. Who knows,
it has been a different year around the area and we
are in awe of what could happen the rest of this year.
There are no carpenters available to fix the hail
damage as they are working hard to get everyone
fixed up. I have had some calls from Rapid City people
who want to come and fix hail damage, but I don’t like
to hire the unknown. I remember how a lot of people
in Sioux Falls got scalloped by people who came in
there to help fix things after a storm. So will have to
wait till we get someone local or a least someone we
Burjes and Cheryl Fitch and all of their children
gathered in the Black Hills for a camping weekend.
Their daughter and her family from Alaska were here
visiting so everyone wanted to spend some time to-
Arnold and Evelyn Lewison, Kimball, Neb., came to
Philip August 19 to spend some time visiting in the
area. I enjoyed dinner with them Monday evening in
Philip. Arnold grew up in the Grindstone and Philip
areas and graduated from Philip High School. Then
he went into the service and is now working in the oil
industry in Kimball. They had just purchased a new
Ford pickup with a topper and were enjoying their va-
cation with this. They said that had plenty of room in
it to put everything they might need while on vaca-
Wednesday noon, August 21, Arnold and I enjoyed
the senior citizen luncheon which was attended by a
nice crowd.
Wednesday evening, the Lewisons had as their
guests for dinner in downtown Philip, Clark Morri-
son, Thelma Hardt and Mary Eide. It was nice to see
Clark doing so well and he said that he had to go back
to the Mayo Clinic for a six-month checkup in Decem-
ber. Clark also said that his garden got hail but he
was able to find some things that had survived. He
has always had a nice, big garden that he shares with
family and friends. Arnold and Evelyn left Thursday
and went on to Deadwood for two days. Their daugh-
ter and son plan on moving to Lead sometime soon to
be near their in-laws and grandparents.
Bart and Marcy Ramsey and their granddaughter,
Ramsey Parent, enjoyed Kool Deadwood Nites in
Deadwood this last weekend. Ramsey Parent flew
back to Minnesota from Rapid City and Bart and
Marcy came on home and back to work.
I spent some time visiting at Philip Health Services
this week. I visited with Myrna Gottsleben, Vi Olney,
Dorothy Urban, Lois Shearn and Minnie Brech. I did-
n’t visit long with Minnie as she was feeling pretty
tough and it was hard for her to talk. She is battling
her third bout of pneumonia, but was alert and was
glad to hear that her grandkids are to be down over
the Labor Day weekend. She will enjoy seeing them
and I do hope that she is feeling much better.
Donna Newman had friends from Rapid City down
helping her over the weekend. Her son-in-law, Mike
Clements, came out and helped also. They said that
they got a lot done. Don and Mary Keyser came down
from Rapid City Tuesday and Mike and Marcia West
came out to Donna’s for lunch to visit them. Then
Wednesday, they all enjoyed the luncheon at the sen-
ior citizens center before the Keysers left for home.
I stopped to visit Barbara Wentz and to pick up the
Grindstone Club secretary books, as I was elected to
be secretary. I thought I had better get them so I
could add some notes as needed, as we have two
events left for this year, the Grindstone card party
with homemade pie to be held at the Bad River Senior
Citizen’s Center and our Christmas dinner which will
also be at the center. We invite our husbands or a
guest for this Christmas meeting and dinner and we
have entertainment, games and white elephant ex-
change, which can be very interesting. We also make
out the new program for next year and the men who
come usually have a few games of cards.
Barbara and Terry Wentz are planning to be gone
in September. They are going to visit her brothers in
Washington for awhile. They have not been in the
best of health, so Barbara and Terry wanted to spend
some time with them. They live about 250 miles
School has started here. Where does the time go? It
seems like summer has come and gone in a rush.
I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great
artist and that there are as few as there are any other
great artists. Teaching might even be the greatest of
the arts since the medium is the human mind and
spirit. – John Steinbeck
I wonder how confusing words can be at times? I
missed a couple of meals as was it dinner at noon or
some say it is evening. Well, when I grew up it was
breakfast, dinner and supper and lunch was what you
took to school or you stopped for lunch in mid-after-
noon wherever you were to take a break or maybe
lunch at a country hall at a dance when the orchestra
and everyone took a break from playing and dancing.
So you better ask or you may miss out.
This reminded me of when one day Kenneth came
home and said that Miller Scott was talking about the
tanks being really full on his land that Kenneth was
helping him farm. Kenneth said that he wondered if
Miller has put in some tanks below the dams? But, he
said I haven’t seen any. Later, Kenneth found out
that they called dams tanks in Texas where Miller
Scott was from.
After learning that words have different meanings
from other states and keeping up. We now have words
that they use on cell phones and that seems to change
often, so I wonder where our English language will
end up. I know we have several new words in the new
dictionaries that used to be called slang.
I remember several years ago when I was in Hans
Hanson’s grocery store, a lady asked the clerk for a
poke and the clerk asked her twice what she said and
she kept saying a poke and still the clerk just looked
at her. So, I said to the clerk, “She wants a sack,” as
that was a southern word used for sack that I had
learned from my dad as a kid. It was always a poke of
candy or whatever had to be put in a small sack. So,
as time goes by words and meanings change from
time to time and from place to place.
But I bet all of you, who have a few years of age on
you, remember science and history we learned in
school has been proven wrong as we were not able to
leave the earth because of gravity. This and other
things have been wrong, but we were just not ready
for all this modern stuff then. It was just too much for
us to comprehend.
I can remember Kenneth’s mother, Elizabeth Eide,
remarking that she came from the ox team to the
train and automobile and air plane and now I have
arrived to the space age in a matter of 80 years and
the modern science is developing faster all the time. I
wonder what she would say if she could see it today
and how fast it is moving. So, how fast and furious
will things develop in the future? Will some of our
young people be
traveling in space
from far away
places to have din-
ner with their fam-
ilies or maybe on
another planet? Or
are we getting too
smart and it will all
come to an end?

As if we don’t have enough to
worry about, what with distracted
driving. Now I would suppose
there will have to be laws written
to fine distracted walkers. That
happens more often than not. In
Rapid City they have stuck yellow
signs in the street, added buttons
to stop traffic and gone to a lot of
expense. You know, if you are jay-
walking (which is illegal and
against the law) at least you are
definitely looking at the traffic
and making a mad dash to safety.
If you are in a crosswalk you don’t
need to pay attention, or so walk-
ers believe and they are getting
Reading Vivian Hansen’s news
reminded me to mention that the
founders of the Wellspring, Inc., a
nonprofit organization to help
adolescents and their families
with chemical dependency, behav-
ioral and mental health issues
which was featured August 11 in
the Rapid City Journal, talked
about the three founders, Dr.
Steve Manlove, Judge Marshall
Young and attorney Al Scovel. I
worked for Al Scovel for several
years and had clipped the article
out to mail to him.
George Gittings went to Pierre
Monday after parts. Jessica and
Sandee Gittings were also in
Rapid City Monday.
Monday morning, I was on my
way home from spending over-
night with Bill at his home at
Howes. I got some coffee from
LaVonne Hansen at the store be-
fore heading down the road. I was
still trying to get the entire yard
mowed when Barbara Herber
stopped by with a project that
needed to be done. Then in the af-
ternoon the Haakon County
Prairie Transporation van had a
run to White River, so I invited
friend Emma Jarl (99) to ride
along to keep me company on the
way home, that is Emma’s home
territory. Well, Emma made
arrangements for us to visit at the
museum in White River and was
that ever a pleasant experience.
We spent about an hour looking at
the various things from the old
days. One thing I need to go back
and study on a little more is the
hydroelectric plant that sits on the
Little White River. Phyllis Word
said as kids they used to swim in
the dam and the gal at the mu-
seum had helped put together a
pamphlet about the plant. It
seems that the plant provided
White River with all their electric-
ity for many years, but now sells
directly to Moro Electric. To end
our tour, we got an outstanding
ice cream cone across the street at
the drug store.
KELO TV's Derrick Olson and
Butch Davis from the Minuteman
Missile Museum were at the Mis-
sile Inn Tuesday afternoon doing
an interview which aired Wednes-
day night. Over 160 people
watched the interview online. Bill
and I caught it on the news that
evening. Very good interview with
Sandee Gittings and Gene
Tuesday morning, I was busy
with the community van making a
trip to Philip in the morning. I vis-
ited at the Dean Parson home and
bummed coffee. In the afternoon,
I made a trip to Wanblee with a
customer. Finally, totally finished
mowing the east side of the yard.
That job just seemed to get drug
out this week. Meanwhile, up
north in the wheat field they had
a fairly good day of cutting,
Rain keeps the grass green and
growing and maybe offers more
job security than expected this
time of year. Tony Harty spent
Monday through Wednesday on
the mower, keeping yards caught
up. A little shower shut him down
Wednesday afternoon.
Don and Vi Moody returned
home to South Dakota Wednesday
after spending a great vacation
along the Mississippi River with
friends, Mark and Cindy Hahn,
Brodhead, Wis. Don and Vi filled
their Excursion with diesel at Dec-
orah, Iowa, and the next fill was
in Kadoka. They spent Tuesday
night at Luverne, Minn., and Vi
reported seeing lots of tall corn
and fields of turbine wind genera-
tors across Minnesota. They
passed by the Dakotafest driving
through Mitchell and there was a
huge crowd covering many acres
with tents, tables, equipment and
parking lots chuck full. They en-
joyed using a gift card for lunch at
a cafe in Sioux Falls. The cafe isn’t
in our part of the state and it was
very important to use the gift card
as they had carried it for a couple
of years. Vi thought they might
have to turn around and go to
Arkansas and other points south
to use that card. The meal was
very enjoyable however, and well
worth the extra time it took to lo-
cate the little country store cafe.
They stopped in at the ranch
Wednesday around 4:00 p.m. or so
and checked everything out there.
Then they drove into Philip to get
their mail and on into Rapid City
later to pick up Mandy and Min-
day at the kennel in the Valley.
They had a couple of appoint-
ments, so spent the weekend at
their place in Rapid Valley as it
was time to mow the drive way
again and catch up on keeping the
little place cleaned up.
I spent Wednesday working in
the basement on projects and
made a delivery here in Kadoka.
Bill got rained out at the field, so
made a stop at the card room on
the way through Philip to come
home for at least an overnight.
Thursday, the road construction
being worked on in the immediate
area is the milling of the blacktop
on Highway 73. Tony Harty
watched the equipment up close
as it worked right here in Kadoka
that morning.
Thursday, Bill warmed up the
Thunderbird and drove it to Philip
to pick up oil and filter for a serv-
ice job and to get in some card
playing. Carol Kroetch stopped by
over the noon hour about some
shirts. Phyllis Word stopped for a
visit. I took our trash to the dump
in the late afternoon. Thankful we
have that ability. We don’t gener-
ate a lot of trash and only need to
drop it off about once a month. I
visited Bonnie Riggins at her
apartment at the Gateway in the
afternoon. Bonnie is making the
best of harsh reality, she has can-
cer and is weathering the storm as
well as possible. She says she is
able to sit up about every other
day with a special “turtle shell”
that supports her back. A card,
call, or visit will be appreciated
I’m sure.
Roxie Gittings arrived at the
George Gittings home Friday
Friday, Tony Harty went south
of Kadoka and watched the
milling process. He reported the
blacktop they are putting down is
progressing along fine. His niece,
Kathy Brown, is working on that
project, so he likes to keep up with
it. He continued on to Martin.
Friday morning it was foggy
and lots of dew. Bill and I went
out for breakfast, then he went
back to Howes to wait and see if
things dried off so they could cut
wheat. I mowed all the yard that
day. It is unbelievable how fast
grass grows. We have a sink hole,
due to the fact a water line had to
be dug up and finally rain has
begun to settle the ground. I
should have watered it down right
off the bat and not waited, so now
I had to pull away the cement
block steps and tile and get it to
sink even more, added dirt, then
put the steps back in place. A lot
more work for sure.
Cathy Fiedler wrote that a cou-
ple of small rain showers went
through Sturgis during the week.
Just enough to get the street wet,
but for the most part it was hot.
Saturday morning, Ralph and
Cathy packed up and went to
Philip for the weekend to see her
mom, Katy Drageset, spending
most of the day with her Satur-
day. In the evening, they meet
Mike and Debbie Clements and
Karen Nelson for supper and had
a nice visit. It was good to see
them since it had been awhile
since they had gotten together.
Ralph and Cathy stayed at the
Richard and Diana Stewart home.
Stewerts went to Rapid for the
weekend to celebrate Richard’s
birthday which was Sunday. Sun-
day morning, Ralph and Cathy
went back over to the nursing
home to visit Katy, staying
through lunch, then left the mid-
dle of afternoon for home.
Jody Gittings did some haying
for George Gittings on Saturday
and had lunch with George,
Sandee and Roxie. Sandee and
Roxie Gittings joined Ashley Reck-
ling, Marlis Petersen and Lou Ann
Reckling Saturday evening to get
started on making some items for
an upcoming fundraiser to help
defer the expense of the cancer
treatment Sandee is undergoing
at the present. We’ll be anxious to
hear more on this later.
Saturday morning, Tony Harty
stopped at our place and since Bill
and I were going to be gone, he
took some items I had for Barbara
Herber and made the delivery to
the Herber ranch. He enjoyed a
few games of cribbage with his
brother, Bernard, and visited with
both Bernard and Barbara.
Bernard was going out to windrow
millet as Tony left. That evening,
Tony went to Interior for supper.
Wow, by Saturday afternoon
Bill and the crew had finished
harvesting the winter wheat in
the Plainview area. He was on his
way home so we got things lined
up, hitched the boat on the Ex-
plorer, the Explorer on the motor
home and headed to Big Bend
Dam for a couple of days of fish-
ing. We got there in time for sup-
per and set up camp in the Corps
of Engineers campground after
Saturday, Don and Vi Moody
took a drive up into the
Black Hills through St. Onge and
Belle Fourche and had a fun drive
returning through Spearfish and
on to Deadwood for Kool Dead-
wood Nites. The parade created
such a crowd that Deadwood was
basically "locked down" for over an
hour with such traffic. Don and Vi
cruised around town and then had
supper on the hill which wasn't
quite as crowed. But, it was lots of
fun and a nice afternoon drive.
Sunday, Tony Harty attended
church. It was a hot day. He went
out for dinner, then shaded up the
rest of the day.
Sunday afternoon, Don and Vi
Moody worked in their yards
around the place at Rapid Valley
and got the car packed and ready
to return back to the ranch and
parked the Excursion for the next
trip. They visited via cell phone
with Bob and Kathy Norton, Sioux
Falls, Saturday about future plans
and activities.
Sunday morning, Bill and I
were up and about early trying to
figure if we could get the boat
launched and do some fishing. An-
other boater and passengers said
it is good to take off the tie down
strap before backing into the
water, as they were struggling to
get it loose. We got launched and
put sunscreen on and waited for
action. I got caught up on some
reading while Bill played with
minnos and worms. All his pa-
tience paid off when he got a fish.
It gave him a challenge, but fi-
nally up out of the water came a
catfish. Beautiful fellow, not too
big, but would have been a good
lunch for us. It was its lucky day,
as we already had plans for sup-
per. So, it was a catch and release
day. We enjoyed bobbing along in
the Missouri River. The Corps re-
leased some water, with the
sounding of a big horn. We got the
boat back on the trailer in good
shape and called it a day. It was a
warm day of 106˚ there, but really
quite pleasant. One more night by
the river.

Softball team finishes season
The girls’ softball team, Sparkling Unicorns, have finished their season. Coach Mike Vetter led the girls during
practices three times per week. They practiced basic skills, safety and the game. Along with several scrimmages,
the team played a tournament in Rapid City, winning one and losing two. Erin Fitzgerald said, “Fundamentals
were taught, softballs were caught (most of the time), and pizza was bought (for the end of the season party).”

Drive wise remembrance
The Philip branch of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America held its annual remembrance birthday
event on Tuesday, August 27, in the high school commons area. The local FCCLA’s main project of “Drive Wise
to Stay Alive” distributes birthday cake every August 27 in recognition of Dalles Brucklacher, a fellow Scottie
who was killed in an automobile crash in May 2007. FCCLA officers served cake to students in grades seven
through 12 and staff. Also distributed were rubber wrist bands that read “Drive wise to stay alive,” to remind
everyone to drive distraction free, drive drug free, and always buckle up. Gavin Brucklacher, this year’s pres-
ident of the Philip branch of FCCLA, said, “Every year since 2007 we celebrate Dalles’ birthday by giving out
a bracelet and some cake to remind everyone that driving wise is a must. Dalles never got to finish, or even
start, his senior year, so he’ll be with me until I graduate.” Shown, from left, are Ellie Coyle – FCCLA secretary,
Katlin Knutson – treasurer, G. Brucklacher, Caitie Pinela – historian, Tyana Gottsleben – treasurer, and Afton
Burns – vice president.

S.D. landowners wanting to im-
prove wildlife habitat on their
land can apply for the Wildlife
Habitat Improvement Program
with the United States Depart-
ment of Agriculture’s Natural Re-
sources Conservation Service.
Jeff Vander Wilt, assistant state
conservationist for programs,
Huron, said landowners have a
chance to improve their land
through this program. Many prac-
tices are eligible; however, there
will be a focus on cover crops,
brush management (cedar, Chi-
nese elm, etc. removal) and range
plantings with pollinators. Pro-
ducers interested in cover crops
can ask for an early start waiver
to start the cover crop yet this fall.
This funding has just become
available and the end of the fiscal
year is at hand, landowners
should apply at local USDA serv-
ice centers right away. The WHIP
has a voluntary continuous sign-
up with a batching deadline for
this funding of September 6.

Greetings from sunny, calm,
gonna-be-hot northeast Haakon
County. Our morning started off
very foggy, and there is a lot of
dew on the grass. I marked the
day on the calendar, so 90 days
from now I can check to see if we
are having precipitation – I don't
know if that old wives' tale is true
or not. The temperature has been
very high the past few days, and
combined with the unusually high
humidity, it has made outside
work a little uncomfortable. But,
the heat is exactly what the row
crops need, and it is also helping
dry down the cane windrows so
they can be baled. The amount of
feed in this country is amazing,
especially considering how dry we
were this spring.
Update on chokecherries, there
are still plenty on the bushes, but
I have refrained from picking any.
However, our daughter, Chelsea,
was in Spearfish last week, and
our granddaughter, Marisa, sent
something home for me. You
guessed it – chokecherries! There
is a bush that hangs over their
back fence, so she meticulously
picked berries for me. Those
berries are now syrup, ready for
the pancakes she loves.
All the moisture in our area has
hatched a very healthy crop of
mosquitoes, making early morn-
ings and late evenings uncomfort-
able. It sounds like the West Nile
virus is still making the rounds, so
be sure to douse yourself with bug
spray if you have to be out during
those hours.
The garden continues to be very
productive. My schedule today
will include canning green beans
and making hot garlic dill pickles.
I'll soon be canning some tomatoes
also, which is a good thing. The
pantry is running a little low on
home canned tomatoes. As usual,
I have some "freebie" veggies
again this year – they sprout from
kitchen waste that I buried in the
garden last year. The freebies this
year are roma tomatoes, can-
taloupe, and butternut squash, all
of which we'll enjoy. I also have a
fall crop of spinach coming along,
because I let the spring spinach go
to seed, then scattered the seed in
the garden. Mother Nature is a
great provider! We have a wonder-
ful crop of pears that will be ready
to pick before too long, but there
aren't many apples this year. The
apples seem to have heavy years
and off years, and this is the off
year for our trees. And it is just as
well, because I don't have time to
deal with them!
When there is no one in the
house with me, I have a little time
to think about things. I'll just
mention two of the things that
crossed my mind this morning.
First of all, I decided that watch-
ing the national news is not a good
way to start my day! Every once in
a while I get fed up with all the
bad news and the news media in
general, so I boycott the news for
a bit. But then I feel a bit out of
touch, so I start paying attention
again. For now, I'm boycotting.
Also this morning, I decided that
I sometimes have a case of noise
pollution in the house. If the tele-
vision is on, and the dishwasher is
running, then the air conditioner
kicks on, it is noisy! (I can hear
what you are thinking – turn off
the TV!) And heaven help me if I
am using the vacuum cleaner or
the mixer, or if the kitchen ex-
haust fan is on! Maybe I just need
quieter appliances. Actually, all
the folks who live in cities proba-
bly deal with noise pollution most
of the time – I don't envy them.
Enough of my ranting and ram-
blings – on to the news.
Last Tuesday, Lola Roseth went
to Philip to visit her mother, Joy
Klima. Thursday, Lola and her
sister, Linda Smith, traveled to
White Owl to meet Linda's daugh-
ter, Lindsey Mangis. They picked
up Linda's granddaughter, Mesa,
so she could spend a few days with
Grandma and Grandpa Smith.
Last Tuesday, Lee and Mary
Briggs went to Eureka to get a
silage truck so they could start
cutting silage on Wednesday. Sat-
urday and Sunday, there were
archery antelope hunters at the
Briggs' place. The hunters were
Ben and his friend, Sallie, – Ben
lives at the Harsha place and
works for Lee Smith. They were in
full camo gear, and spent the days
stalking the lone buck that has
been traveling through in front of
Lee and Mary's house on his way
to water. According to Mary, the
antelope still roams. Perhaps Ben
will have better luck another time.
Lee and Mary's grandson, Seth
Joens, started classes at Black
Hills State University, and Zane
Joens is back in class at Sturgis
High School. Granddaughters Cat-
tibrie and Kinsey Riggle started
fall classes in Pierre last week.
Last Saturday, Kevin and Mary
Neuhauser attended an auction in
Pierre. Monday evening, Kevin's
sister and brother-in-law, Nina
and Lynn Nachtigall, came to the
ranch and spent the night. Mary
came out from Pierre and had sup-
per with the group.
Ed Briggs was in White River
August 17 for Frontier Days. He
helped the Carr family get their
team hitched up so they could be
in the parade. In the afternoon,
they took in the rodeo, followed by
supper with the Carr family. On
the 18th, he helped the Carr fam-
ily work cattle. Last Tuesday
night, Ed visited his sister, Janet,
in Spearfish, leaving early
Wednesday morning for Sheridan,
Wyo., to be on hand for a cattle
auction. He said he was back home
Thursday morning to fill his water
jug and get back to his own work!
Clint and Laura Alleman re-
main busy with cattle work, mow-
ing, and all the other tasks that
need attention. Laura has been
helping her parents at the airport
in Hayes when she can. Clint and
Laura found time to sneak in a
dinner outing in Pierre last week
while their daughter, Alivya, was
spending time with Grandma and
Grandpa Alleman. They attended
church Sunday and enjoyed the
friends and fellowship, followed by
supper with the Yosts in Hayes.
And now that a new week is in
progress, Laura said they will con-
tinue to whittle away at the to-do
Dick and Gene Hudson said
news is sparse at their house.
Gene has been very busy with the
garden and canning. She said she
was canning beans and making
jelly on Monday, and she was talk-
ing about making sweet pickles –
the kind that use lime in the recipe
and involve a several day process.
Dick and Gene's grandsons are all
back to school – Wyatt is at South
Dakota State University, Avery is
at Philip High School, and Noah is
at Deep Creek Elementary School.
Coreen Roseth said things have
been relatively quiet at their
house. She has been spending time
watering and mowing and swat-
ting mosquitoes.
Billy and Arlyne Markwed were
in Pierre last weekend where Billy
participated in the state horseshoe
tournament, which included a
banquet Saturday night. Arlyne
said it was plenty hot, but the con-
testants took their time and drank
plenty of water.
T.J. Gabriel and family made a
trek to Billings, Mont., over the
weekend to attend a horse sale.
They got some horses for the kids,
because they all love to ride.
Adam and Jodi Roseth and fam-
ily took in the Central States Fair
last Saturday, which included a
rodeo performance Saturday
night. They returned home Sun-
Polly Bruce said they haven't
been too socially active this past
week. Bill has been busy hauling
hay, getting it situated for winter.
A week ago Tuesday, they worked
cattle, so Polly had 14 people for
lunch. Saturday evening, Bill and
Polly attended church in Midland.
Dorothy and Nels Paulson visited
on Monday, bringing them a gift of
fresh veggies.
Nels and Dorothy Paulson were
in Corsica Sunday to help
Dorothy's sister, Wilma Olson, cel-
ebrate her 90th birthday. They
went by way of Woonsocket in
order to pick up two of Dorothy's
nieces. They encountered unex-
pected road closures due to con-
struction, so the trip took a little
longer than they had anticipated.
Dorothy organized Wilma's birth-
day celebration, which consisted of
lunch at a local restaurant fol-
lowed by visiting at the nursing
home where Wilma is a resident.
Many family and friends were on
hand to help her mark the day.
Dorothy's brother, Dallas, and his
friend from Brookings were also
there, bringing Dorothy a large
amount of sweet corn, tomatoes
and cucumbers. Nels and Dorothy
returned home Sunday evening.
Shirley Halligan had lunch with
Dave and Laura Hand in Pierre
Thursday. Dave headed home fol-
lowing lunch while the ladies en-
joyed some shopping. Sunday,
Frank and Shirley attended
church at Lily Park in Ft. Pierre,
followed by a picnic lunch. She
said they got back to their house
before it got too hot. In the after-
noon, they took Frank's father,
Ken Halligan, to a movie at the
local theater.
Chase and Kelly Briggs continue
to be busy with field work, yard
work, children, etc. I'm sure there
is never a dull moment at their
house! Kelly's garden is doing
well – sounds like she has plenty
of cucumbers if anyone needs any.
Ray and Nancy Neuhauser were
lunch guests at the Neuhauser
ranch Wednesday. Friday, Nancy
met her daughter and son-in-law,
Julie and Rod, and the trio headed
to the Black Hills to do some
painting at their family cabin.
Nancy returned to Pierre Sunday
afternoon. One of Nancy's grand-
daughters will be staying with Ray
and Nancy in Pierre while she
takes nursing courses at CUC.
Joyce Jones has been continuing
with her marathon cleaning
frenzy – sorting, tossing, organiz-
ing, etc. It sounds like the storage
shed is next on the agenda. She
said it is so nice to have things
more organized, and it is amazing
the amount of space that can be
freed up. Grandson Luke was even
doing a little dance in an area that
was pretty full about a week ago!
Grandchildren Luke and Mattie
are back in class at Cheyenne
School for the fall semester. Part
of their daily schedule includes
practicing piano at Grandma
Joyce's house after school. What a
good habit to instill in the chil-
Marge Briggs was in town one
day last week. The garden contin-
ues to produce well, and she has
been sharing some of the vegeta-
Our week has flown by here. We
are busy with silage cutting,
swathing, baling, checking cattle,
etc. My time is mostly spent in the
yard, garden, and kitchen, plus
the daily trek to the barn to feed
cats and bum calves! Our daugh-
ter, Chelsea, and her husband,
Mike, left last Friday morning to
head to their new home in Tampa,
Fla. They spent Friday night and
Saturday with our daughter, Jen,
and her husband, Ross, in Salem,
before hitting the road bright and
early Sunday morning. As I write
this news, Mike and Chelsea are
south of Nashville and should ar-
rive in Tampa tomorrow. Mike is
used to these kind of road trips,
but it is all new to Chelsea – so far,
so good. Wednesday, Ray and
Nancy Neuhauser were here for

WERE YOU RIGHT? Last time: Basement stones on Waddell building, E.
Pine Street. Around Philip there are many architectural elements on build-
ings as well as other items that we see on a daily basis. But, can you iden-
tify them when given just an upclose snapshot? Here’s one for you to try.
The answer will be in the next week’s Pioneer Review.
Where is it?
(continued from 12)
lunch, and I sent them home with
some garden produce, including
zucchini. Saturday, Mary Briggs
stopped in for a short visit in the af-
ternoon. Unfortunately, she didn't
need any zucchini. Sunday, Randy
and I attended the ranch rodeo at
the Central States Fair – great en-
tertainment. We stopped in
Kadoka to drop some veggies off for
my mother, Letoy Brown, (I got rid
of more zucchini!), and we took
friends, Bob and Sharel Spears,
with us to the rodeo. (The Spears'
also received veggies, including
zucchini.) I'd better be careful with
the zucchini – people are going to
be afraid to visit me!
This week, I am grateful for air
conditioning. The heat and humid-
ity are brutal! I remember years
ago when we didn't have air condi-
tioning in the vehicles, and travel
wasn't fun in this type of weather.
I worked at a local restaurant in my
hometown of Kadoka in those days,
and the hot weary travelers would
go through pitchers of ice water,
trying to quench their thirst. At
that time, Kadoka water came from
an artesian well, and if you weren't
used to drinking it, it did terrible
things to your system – pitchers full
would definitely not have been a
good thing! I always imagined that
the travelers spent a lot of time the
following day finding "facilities" in
the Badlands.
Take it easy during these hot
days – drink a lot of fluids and try
to avoid the mosquitoes. Enjoy your

Every year, South Dakotans of
all ages enjoy attending the fairs
across our state.
Whether it is the Turner County
Fair, Central States Fair, Brown
County Fair, Dakotafest, the State
Fair or any event in between, these
fairs mark an annual tradition that
families look forward to all year.
I know a trip to the State Fair is
not complete for me if I don’t stop
by the Pork Producers’ or Cattle-
men’s booth for a sandwich and
learn the latest news from livestock
producers. Fairs are also a chance
to see familiar faces and reconnect
with old friends.
Many of the fairs provide educa-
tional opportunities for young peo-
ple to meet other students who
have similar interests from around
the state. FFA and 4-H students
look forward to opportunities to ex-
hibit produce and craft items, or
show the animals they have care-
fully raised in the months leading
up to the fair. When they aren’t
competing, many of the young peo-
ple will take a ride or two, pick up
a yard stick, or play a few games.
Adults can enjoy perusing the
booths at exhibit halls, where they
can find the latest gadgets and
home products. Many enjoy listen-
ing to speakers, watching the day-
time entertainment, or taking in
an election year debate.
At night, the whole family can
round out the day with a concert
from a favorite band or attend the
rodeo for some entertainment.
These large performances always
draw a crowd and invite a larger
audience to the fair.
Time spent at the fair helps cre-
ate lasting family memories. Hope-
fully everyone has had a chance to
take in at least some of the sights,
tastes, and sounds of this great
South Dakota summer tradition.
of Karel’s brother, Ed Eisenbraun,
and his wife, Linda, Rapid City.
Saturday, Karel and her son, Mark
Reiman, Kadoka, headed for Rapid
City where they picked up Karel’s
sister, Paula Eisenbraun, and all
headed to the wedding reception
for Tawney and Matt Svoboda,
which was held at Rockerville.
Karel reports it was a happy occa-
sion with everyone having a great
time. Tawney is a cousin to Jeremy
Whitcher, who is married to Julie
(Jones) Witcher. Karel enjoyed vis-
iting with Jeremy and Julie and
seeing baby Walt. She said he is a
cutie! Julie said Grandpa Gene and
Grandma Audrey come up quite
often to see that grandbaby.
Tina (Fosheim) Haug and her
husband, Orlyn, have moved from
Aurora, Colo., to Pierre where they
bought a house north of Pierre near
Gray Goose Road. I had an inter-
esting visit with Tina’s niece, Crys-
tal (Fosheim) Neuharth, Hayes. In
visiting about fall crops and the
heat, Crystal said her husband,
Levi, is harvesting flax, so fall har-
vest has begun. Levi and Crystal
have two boys, the oldest
Johnathon is in kindergarten and
is being home schooled. Reports are
things are going well at the mo-
ment and knowing Crystal as I do,
I believe she will handle it just fine.
With no school at Hayes anymore,
and it being some distance to drive
him to school, they have chosen to
try home schooling for now and see
how it goes. Good luck, Crystal, it
was good to visit with you. Crystal
and our son, Christopher, were
classmates, graduating from Mid-
land in 2004.
Members of Midland’s local
Relay for Life team met on Septem-
ber 14 for potluck with grilled rat-
tlesnake and a time of planning for
the upcoming Relay for Life walk
which will be held at Wall this
year. Those there were Roy and
Carol Hunt, Keith Hunt, Christine
Niedan, Jan Tolton, Michelle
Meinzer, John Nemec, Audrey
Jones and Pat and Sophie Foley.
In visiting with Sophie Foley for
news, she reports her grandson,
Bryan Schofield, is in his second
year at Mitchell Technical Institute
where he is studying to become an
electrician. Other than that, she
said it was mowing and weedeating
her yard and canning tomatoes. A
busy weekend before going back to
work at the bank on Monday!
As I close my column for an-
other week, the sun is shining and
the heat is a’rising, making for
good harvest weather, right? I had
a most enjoyable day Thursday
meeting Ivan Ortman of the Ort-
man Clinic at Canistota and two
German girls who had been ex-
change students at Canistota some
five years ago, at 1880 Town. What
delightful girls they were and the
best part, when all was said and
done, they gave me a hug and a gift
of German chocolate candy – that
melt in your mouth chocolate
candy. I told them our daughter-in-
law, Stephanie, got me hooked on
German chocolate candy. They
thoroughly enjoyed the town, espe-
cially the Dances with Wolves dis-
play in the loft of the 14-sided barn,
as they had recently seen the movie
on DVD. They enjoyed the country
music show at the Long Horn Sa-
loon and the buggy ride afterwards.
One of them even got to handle the
reins of the mules pulling the
buggy. That town brings an awful
lot of joy to young and old alike. I
called my brother to wish him and
Bernie a happy anniversary. They
were married 42 years ago on my
birthday, August 25. I remember
cutting wedding cake at the recep-
tion and someone wishing me a
happy birthday. It was Margaret
Markwed. I chuckled and said,
“Oh, yeah, it is my birthday.” Good
memories! Jerry’s birthday is Au-
gust 21, so as the saying goes, we
are getting another year older and
what’s the rest – deeper in debt?
I leave you a bit of humor from
my Amish calendar, “A laugh is a
smile that bursts.” Isn’t that the
truth? Go out and make it a good
day and stay cool.
