Sales tax measure passes signature process
The petitions submitted for an initiated measure to increase South Dakota sales tax have passed the petition certification process, and will be placed on the November 2012 general election ballot. The measure, described in its title as “an initiated measure to increase state general sales and use taxes for additional kindergarten through 12 public education and Medicaid funding,” will now appear on the 2012 ballot as Initiated Measure 15. Secretary of State Jason Gant said, “From our five percent sample of 1,763 signatures, we validated 1,434 out of the 35,251 officially submitted, and invalidated 329 for various reasons including lack of voter registration, improperly filling out the petitions, legibility, and notary public errors. Invalid signatures comprised 18.66 percent of the total signatures sampled, and under state law, the number of valid signatures sampled was sufficient for the measure to pass validation for the ballot,” Gant said. “If we extrapolate the valid signatures, as per South Dakota Law, they submitted 28,673 valid signatures, well over the minimum requirement of 15,855 needed.” “Any group wishing to challenge the validation has five business days, which will be Friday, the second of December,” Gant said. Gant noted, “This measure marks the final initiated measure that will appear on the 2012 general election. The legislature does have the option to include constitutional measures on the ballot, and citizens have the ability to refer laws passed this next session. Initiated Measure 15 now joins Referred Law 14, a referral of the governor’s large project fund, on the 2012 ballot.”

Public Utilities Commission accepts reduced NorthWestern Energy natural gas rate increase
The South Dakota Public Utilities Commission approved a 3.3 percent natural gas rate increase for NorthWestern Energy this week. The final increase amount was offered by the company and PUC staff as part of a joint settlement stipulation. The increase represents less than half of what the company requested. The rate increase becomes effective December 1, 2011. The commission unanimously voted to accept the settlement and approve the reduced rate increase at its regular meeting in Pierre, November 22. The rate increase will generate approximately $1,847,000 in annual revenues for the company. NorthWestern applied to the commission in May 2011 for permission to increase its rates by 7.2 percent to raise approximately $4,123,000 in additional annual revenue. PUC Chairman Gary Hanson said the difference between the company’s request and the commission’s approval reflects the arduous effort that resulted in the settlement agreement. “Rate increase requests are not quick and simple. The numerous and lengthy negotiations between the PUC staff and the company ultimately ended with a savings to ratepayers of more than $2 million compared to what was requested. That’s tremendous,” he said. The rate increase review spanned six months and included analysis by a PUC staff team comprised of one attorney and three analysts. A consulting firm assisted the staff. Commissioner Chris Nelson, vice chairman of the PUC, explained that the commission follows a process outlined by South Dakota law when considering rate increase requests. “The commission makes careful deliberation of all aspects of a rate case and is bound to uphold the laws and rules of the state with our decision. We strive for a rate that is fair, just and reasonable for all sides, consumers and the company,” Nelson said. At the request of local residents, the commission held a public hearing in Scotland, S.D., in October to hear comments from NorthWestern customers. The hour-long meeting included an information exchange among the PUC, NorthWestern representatives and local residents to help explain the rate case process. “I felt the meeting in Scotland was a valuable experience,” stated PUC Commissioner Kristie Fiegen. “I appreciated the opportunity to share details about how the commission handles rate case requests by thoroughly studying the evidence and weighing the facts relative to our jurisdiction before making our decision. This truly is an interesting and complex process,” she concluded. The settlement includes a moratorium barring NorthWestern from seeking another natural gas rate increase from the commission before December 1, 2013, excluding an extraordinary event. The company’s last natural gas rate increase of 5.8 percent was approved in December 2007.

What’s in a name? Trademarking
What’s in a name? Secretary of State Jason Gant reminded trademark applicants that names and cities cannot be trademarked for exclusive use under South Dakota law. Gant said the public should be aware South Dakota law places certain restrictions on trademarks. Those seeking to trademark their name for exclusive use need not apply. “South Dakota law does not allow persons to simply trademark a name or a location to deny its use to others. Any trademark registration with a name or location can only be used in connection with additionally descriptive terms distinctive of the applicant's goods or services,” Gant said. “In other words, I couldn’t trademark the name ‘Jason Gant’ in South Dakota, but I could trademark ‘Jason Gant Widgets.’ ” “The same goes for geographically descriptive terms such as ‘Black Hills’ or ‘Spearfish.’ In the past our office has denied such requests based on South Dakota Codified Law 37-6-10,” Gant said. “The requirement for a trademark is that a term’s use must be distinctive. You can protect the identity and distinctiveness of your product, but you can’t deny someone the use of their name, just because they might have the same name.” Controversies over protecting names have arisen recently due to a group in Sturgis filing for federal trademark protection for ‘Sturgis’ and ‘Black Hills,’ and a state prison inmate suing actor Mike Rowe because they share the same name. Gant said, “In the case of trademarking ‘Sturgis’ and ‘Black Hills,’ this only could have taken place at the federal level, because my office has and will continue to reject similar applications, based on 37-6-10. Unfortunately, the parties involved are left to fight that battle in federal court.” “In the case of South Dakota’s Mike Rowe bringing suit against Mike Rowe, the narrator of “The Deadliest Catch,” for virtue of having the same name, everyone has their right to have their day in court. However, anyone attempting to trademark a personal name for their own exclusive use would find their application rejected in South Dakota,” said Gant.

Angel tree ... The Philip chapter of Family Career and Community Leaders of America put up its Maggie Grace Angel Tree at the Haakon County Courthouse, Monday, November 28. Maggie Grace was born February 20, 2002, to Doug and Karen Mehlhaff, Rapid City. On December 10, 2002, Maggie died suddenly from complications of a rare respiratory bacteria. The angel tree is dedicated in Maggie's memory in the hope that needy children in the area will be shown the spirit and love of Christmas. The Philip FCCLA chapter, in conjunction with local churches and the Haakon community health office, will distribute the donations to children in need in the Philip area. Gifts beyond the need of this community will be distributed by the Jackson community health office and the Bennett County foster child program. “Last year the response was very generous with nearly 200 gifts,” said Brigitte Brucklacher, Philip FCCLA advisor. “We hope this year’s giving equals or surpasses that generosity, as there are many families and programs in need because of the economy.” To donate to the project, leave an unwrapped toy, book or new article of clothing under the tree located next to the Extension office in the courthouse before 4:00 pm, Monday, December 19. Gifts are for children ages infant to teenage. Help make a difference in the life of a child. If you know of a child in need in this community or would like more information, contact Brucklacher at the Philip High School at 859-2680. This is Philip FCCLA’s 14th year sponsoring the angel tree.

The closing of post offices throughout South Dakota is a big concern for all. We hope that our letter will be posted in all newspapers across the state to let others join us in the fight to keep our South Dakota post offices open. We are asking for help from everyone concerned about the closing of area post offices and possibly Dakota Central mail processing plant in Huron. The closing of rural post offices affects everyone. Yale closed last year and was told to go to Carpenter, Cavour or to Iroquois. This year Carpenter and Cavour are possibly closing. Residents of South Dakota like the quick and efficient service on a daily basis. Denver, Colo., is experiencing a waiting line of one hour per person no matter what time of day, it is as a result of their suburb post offices closing. People move here for our way of living. Two-to-three-day services will create a delay in approval and payment in a timely manner especially for accounts due by the 10th of the month. Two-to-three-day service will only create more e-traffic, as invitations are sent in advance, but not too early ... when should I send
their invite now? E-traffic is not always available in the rural areas and others living in towns do not always have a computer. The receipt of a birthday card on the day or the closest “mail” day means a lot to the sender and the receiver. Multiple residents travel +/-50 miles round trip to make it to Dakota Central to mail letters by 8:00 p.m. Expansion cost in Sioux Falls is not needed as the needed resources are here at Dakota Central, along with exceptional service. The USPS does not receive any tax revenue; the closure of post offices will in turn create the expenditure of tax dollars as they add to the unemployed list. Everyone please write to Senator Johnson, Senator Thune and Representative Noem about your concerns. You may also mail your letters directly to Mary Anderson, district discontinuance coordinator, P.O. Box 7500, Sioux Falls, SD 57117-7500 or you may call her at 605-333-2738. (Docket: 135732457324, Item Nbr: 18.) Thank you, Barb DeJong and Kathy Micheel, Cavour, S.D.

Lending a hand this holiday season
by Senator John Thune December is upon us and the winter weather has arrived. As the temperatures dip, we are reminded that many will go without warm clothing and hot meals this winter. Churches, schools and countless non-profits throughout South Dakota organize holiday collections for those in our state who have fallen on tough times. In the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it is easy to get wrapped up in all that is associated with the season. However, lending a hand to those who are not as fortunate could make someone's Christmas season brighter. Whether you are giving your time at a local food pantry, or simply donating a coat you no longer wear, these acts of kindness could have a major impact on another South Dakotan's holiday season. As Christmas approaches, I encourage all South Dakotans to donate their time, talents and resources to help improve the lives of others.

Gift choice success ... by Del Bartels
Mark, a young husband, felt an increasing foreboding of Christmas. He was becoming more apprehensive. After four years of marriage, he knew that if he did not get his wife, Anne, something this year that she really wanted for Christmas, he was going to get a huge, paperwrapped present that looked depressingly like the living room couch. He stopped by the post office, keeping the bills and the sports magazines, and throwing away the junk mail. The junk was mostly magazines advertising woman’s winter apparel. Funny, for junk mail, they were not addressed to “resident” but had his wife’s name on them. He then stopped by the grocery store for a few items. A lady they knew from church just had to show off her new coat. It was in her favorite color of green. He didn’t rightly know the answer when the woman asked him what Anne’s favorite color was. Mark next stopped at the general store for a pair of work gloves. The clerk conversationally mentioned that women’s dress gloves and scarves were on sale. Did he know what style his wife might prefer? The man sidestepped the sales pitch. In doing so as politely as possible, he did agree that any new gloves and scarf would have to match a woman’s new coat. He arrived home. Anne said that they could put up the tree, starting before supper and finishing after. She said that she would have liked for them to go for a short walk, but her old winter coat just did not quite keep her warm enough. He mentally debated if a warm sweater would be a good Christmas gift, but he didn’t know her size. He noticed that her coat, as she was showing him the worn spots and the outdated style, had a tag in the collar. Perhaps one of her old sweaters also had a size printed in the same place? As they were decorating the tree, he had to hang up her coat to get it off of the back of the couch. He thought he was being a gentleman in not mentioning that she had absentmindedly not put it back in the closet. Later, in a joking mood, his wife saw his new work gloves and made a show of trying them on; they were way too big. When he put them away in the closet, she commented that their color and style matched his work coat. Was she actually admitting that he really did have some kind of sensible taste? Did she like that color, brown? The Christmas tree was finished. Every year it had a red theme because that was what she liked. She said the wooden sawhorse decoration would need a new coat of red paint before next year. She got all sappy over how velvety the cloth around the base of the tree was. They eventually got ready for bed. He went to turn off the tree lights. Funny, he thought that he had hung up her coat already. Maybe he was just thinking about it, but never actually did it? While she was brushing her hair in the bathroom, he quickly checked her bedroom chest of drawers for a sweater size. Got it! Wow, was she ever going to be surprised this Christmas!

These are not just words
Lately, I have been thinking of some of my favorite words, but not just the words themselves; I am thinking about the attitude behind these words. Let me share some of them with you. This list, which I refer to often, forces me to ask myself some really tough questions and also provides me with the opportunity for plenty of self-talk (the positive variety, of course.) Attitude – What is my attitude? Health – Am I working on it? Peace – Am I at peace with myself and others around me? Joy – Do I spread joy to others? Love - Do I live it? Integrity – Am I completely honest with myself and with others? Thrift – Have I been thrifty? Blessings – Do I count them daily? Balance – Am I really living a life that is balanced? Opportunity – Do I seize them when they come my way? Enthusiasm – Am I approaching challenges with enthusiasm? Commitment – Am I giving up when I should be sticking to it? Leadership – Am I a leader, first at home, and then at work? Priorities – Are mine in the proper order? Forgiveness – Do I forgive others as I have been forgiven? Now, obviously, when I go through this list, these words do not immediately result in my feeling very positive. At first, I may feel guilty or angry with myself for failing to live up to my own expectations. But then I remember that I can begin the process of changing the negatives into positives by using positive self-talk. For instance, when I realize that I am wanting to give up on something or someone, I tell myself, “I am not a quitter! I will not quit!” Or when I realize that I have been less than enthusiastic about doing something, I affirm myself with, “Act enthusiastic and you’ll be enthusiastic!” I encourage you to make your own list of words that represent the kind of person you want to be and the qualities you want to focus on in your own life. And when you feel you’ve done less then your best, give yourself a good talking too!

Plant Pathology – Managing Plant Diseases As a plant pathology field specialist with SDSU Extension, my column will often, but not always, deal with plant diseases and how to deal with them. Plant pathology, also known as phytopathology, is defined as the science of plant diseases and of ways to prevent and do away with them. The field of study is subdivided into general and specialized phytopathology. General phytopathology deals with pathogens, the causes and conditions of outbreaks, and the patterns of development and spread of diseases, especially massive outbreaks. It also involves studying anatomical and physiological disturbances in diseased organisms, plant immunity, and quarantine. Specialists forecast outbreaks and devise means of protecting plants. Specialized phytopathology is applied to agriculture (crop diseases), forestry (tree and shrub diseases and the destruction of dead wood), and the cultivation of ornamental plants. Virtually every cultivated crop and plant is vulnerable to diseases that adversely affect its growth and production. In order for a plant to be infected with a disease, three conditions must exist: a susceptible host, a virulent pathogen and a favorable environment. When these three conditions exist together in abundance, a disease epidemic can occur. There are a number of ways to manage or minimize the incidence and extent of plant diseases, and hence the damage or effect. Beginning with the first condition needed, a susceptible host; the primary defense is resistant varieties or cultivars. This phenomenon has occurred in nature since the beginning of time, as genetic selection has allowed plants with genetic makeup with resistance to survive diseases and produce seeds or fruit, while those lacking resistance do not. Man has taken advantage of this phenomenon by crossing plants of the same species, in an attempt to combine favorable characteristics of each parent. The plants produced from the resulting seeds are then evaluated for their ability to withstand disease pressure. Planting resistant varieties is often the least expensive way to manage plant diseases. The presence of virulent pathogens can be managed by cultural, mechanical and/or chemical means. Examples of cultural methods include crop rotation, planting date and the use of cover crops, depending on the crop and the disease. Mechanical methods can include tillage, residue removal, and others. When the crop is suscepti-
by Bob Fanning Field Specialist, Winner Regional Extension Center ble, the pathogen is present, and the environment is favorable for disease, chemical fungicides may be employed to protect the crop and minimize infection. Some diseases are vectored by insects or mites, and some success can be experienced by using insecticides or miticides to control the carriers of the disease. When the environment is favorable for the development of disease (often wet weather), even moderately resistant plant varieties in the presence of low levels of virulent pathogens can express disease symptoms. Man cannot control the weather, but can monitor weather conditions and use them as an alert system to initiate chemical applications if warranted. Agricultural producers can have a subtle influence on the environment their crops are subject to by choosing varieties by plant height, plant population, row spacing, crop rotation, the use of cover crops, and other factors under their control. For more information on crop diseases and how to manage them, contact your SDSU Regional Extension Center. Calendar Nov. 29 - Dec. 1: Range Beef Cow Symposium XXII, Mitchell, Neb.

Cope is new South Dakota Ag and Rural Leadership exec. director
South Dakota Agricultural and Rural Leadership, Inc., (SDARL); has hired of Lori Cope, Rapid City, as executive director to succeed Dan Gee, Brookings, who is retiring after 10 years. Craig Dybedahl, president of the SDARL board of directors, said, “Dan Gee has been instrumental in helping to refine the directional vision of SDARL and ensure that South Dakota rural and agricultural communities keep pace with the rate of change, and provide leadership opportunities for our rural men and women and arm them with the resources and skills to become spokespersons that represent the agricultural industry," Dybedahl said. To address these needs, SDARL provides an intensive study and training experience for future agricultural leaders of South Dakota. “As we go forward it is imperative that we continue the momentum that will further advance the goals of SDARL,” said Dusty Anderson, board member. “Lori Cope's experience in leadership and fund development and her style of leadership is one of an approach to provide direction, implement a planof-action and motivate people to rise to their call for leadership.” “Leadership development is a journey and an experience that is life changing and the SDARL experience better prepares our people in South Dakota to become involved, active spokespersons in their community, state and nation,” Cope said. “I look forward to continuing the strong program experience for our class participants while cultivating strong support with the SDARL alumni.” Cope and her family lived in Aberdeen for 22 years. As of August 2011, she and her family have moved to Rapid City. Prior to SDARL, Cope worked five years for the Cooperative Extension Service in Mitchell, seven years as the executive director of the Aberdeen Area Chamber of Commerce and currently operates her own business, Leadership Dynamics. Cope primarily works with companies and organizations conducting strategic planning, team leadtraining, coordinated ership fundraising efforts and has assisted with numerous community capitol campaigns. She also provided supervision and leadership for organizations undergoing major company realignment or reorganization efforts. She will begin as SDARL executive director effective February 1. SDARL is dedicated to identifying and developing leadership for agriculture and rural communities in order to enhance the quality of life in South Dakota. Since the program was formed in 1999, more than 180 South Dakotans have participated in the program.
End of season soil/nutrient sample key for next year’s bottom line
Ag producers wishing to improve their bottom line next year are encouraged to start now with their resources. “Once the crops are in the bin, sampling soil is a great first step in planning for next year’s crop,” said John Lentz, resource conservationist for the Natural Resources Conservation Service, Mitchell. “Autumn is the ideal time to pull soil samples in your cropland acres and test for nutrients,” said Lentz. There is still time to get accurate samples and he recommends farmers follow guidelines established by South Dakota State University Extension Service. Because laboratory tests are calibrated to specific depths, it’s important to collect samples correctly because a core taken deeper or shallower can produce inconsistent, or invalid, results, explained Lentz. Surface soil samples (zero to six inches) are used for conventional tests of organic matter, phosphorus, potassium, pH, and salt levels. Subsurface soil samples (six to 24 inches) are used to test for mobile nutrients such as nitrate-nitrogen, chloride and sulfur. Both surface and subsurface soil samples are needed to test for available nutrients in the root zone. About 15 to 20, two-depth samples should be taken for every 80 acres. Many crop consultants and cooperatives provide soil sampling services, while private labs can handle the analysis. South Dakota farmers utilizing livestock manure for crop nutrient needs should also consider testing the manure. Lentz said, “There can be a large degree of variability depending upon the species, the ration used with the animals, the type and amount of bedding, etc.” Lentz said, “Even though there are some good ‘book numbers’ available, it is best to find exactly which nutrients are available in manure you have on your farm.” The agricultural nutrient management team travels statewide using a current grant to cover the costs of manure analysis. The goal of nutrient analysis is to meet the needs of next year’s crops while avoiding both over, and under, fertilizing. “If we have both a good soil sample and a manure sample, we can really ‘key in’ to get the maximum efficiency of those nutrients, and, save the producer some dollars,” said Lentz.

Snowmen, Santas and Poinsettias
By Elke Baxter They're all synonymous with Christmas. Not even Christmas Cacti enjoy the same Holiday status as the bright and cheery Poinsettia. Over 100 cultivated species of this beauty are available but it is actually a rather weedy looking native of Mexico. Only recent breeding habits have created the bushy, compact plants we know and love. Euphorbia pulcherrima is a shrub or small tree, typically reaching a height of two to 16 ft. The plant bears dark green leaves that measure three to six inches in length. The flowers are actually not flowers at all but leaves, called bracts. They are most often flaming red but can be orange, pale green, cream, pink, white or marbled. Your creative nursery grower might even add some color and produce turquoise, blue, glittered or some other fantasy colors. The true flowers are small and yellow in the center of each leaf cluster, but since they do not attract pollinators the plant develops bracts instead. The colors come from photoperiodism, meaning that they require darkness for 12 hours at a time for at least five days in a row to change color. At the same time, the plants need a lot of light during the day for the
brightest color. According to Wikipedia, the plant's association with Christmas began in 16th century Mexico, where legend tells of a young girl who was too poor to provide a gift for the celebration of Jesus' birthday. The tale goes that the child was inspired by an angel to gather weeds from the roadside and place them in front of the church altar. Crimson "blossoms" sprouted from the weeds and became beautiful poinsettias. From the 17th century, Franciscan friars in Mexico included the plants in their Christmas celebrations.The star-shaped leaf pattern is said to symbolize the Star of Bethlehem and the red color represents the blood sacrifice through the crucifixion of Jesus. In our part of the world we use poinsettias as indoor plants where they prefer good morning sun, then shade in the hotter part of the day if you decide to keep yours throughout the year. They are quite cold sensitive but daytime temperatures in excess of 70° F also tend to shorten the lifespan of the plants. The poinsettia can be difficult to
induce to reflower after the initial display when purchased. The plant requires a period of uninterrupted long, dark nights for around two months in autumn in order to develop flowers. Incidental light at night during this time will hamper flower production. When watering it is important to allow the plant to drain out any excess water. Having a poinsettia sit in water can do harm to the plant as it prefers moist soil to direct water. Poinsettias have suffered from an apparently false rumor of high toxicity. While it is true that the plant is only midly poisonous if eaten, those sensitive to latex may suffer an allergic reaction and it is therefore not advisable to bring the plants into the home of sensitive individuals. So, as long as you're not allergic to latex, visit your local florist or nursery for the best quality Poinsettias. While big box stores may have cheaper alternatives, remember that quite often the price tag reflects the quality, so go ahead and indulge yourself. Christmas only comes once a year!! Merry Christmas!

I am thankful that he goes out for walks. I also phoned Barbara Hansen to thank her for the cute turkey door decoration she brought yesterday while I was gone. I phoned my daughter, Carol, in Colorado Springs to thank her for the hair appointment. She said they were expecting snow. At crafts with Amy, Sandy and Shawn, we made autumn blessings door decorations. They were in pretty fall colors with autumn leaves and acorns around a cheery face with a neckerchief and hat. Thanks for providing a pleasant hour. Saturday’s big news was our first big snow. Maybe about six inches, they way it looked around Somerset Court. Elaine Backs, Somerset Court resident, and her family treated Somerset Court residents to two big boxes of assorted doughnuts. They were wonderful. Thank you. My granddaughter, Holly Maudsley, Woodbury, Minn., works for 3M. She is a senior process and product development engineer in their drug delivery systems division. She sends their latest “Steamwinder” magazine. It has the account of the October 13-15 National Society of Women Engineers convention in Chicago. It has her picture with a group of women engineers who spoke at the convention. Thank you, Holly. Thank you to Gayla and Dan Piroutek, Milesville, who sent me a pretty Thanksgiving card and friendly letter. Gayla has been postmaster at Milesville for the past 32 years. It does seem unfortunate that so many country post offices will be closing. The Pirouteks have been busy getting ready for winter. Painting and tidying up and picking up apples, all pleasant tasks. The necessary book work is not so much fun. M.R. Hansen came for scrabble Saturday and brought me a big book of humorous stories. Thank you, M.R. His book is likely to be the one I read first, though I have several books from the Rapid City library. One of those books is about how twins’ lives are intertwined though they live apart. Another one is about how one’s position in the family birth order affects his personality. And I have “The Spy Who Came In From the Co-op.” Violet and Vivian had a little game of pool and agreed to try again another day. Others played whist and rummi-cube. Sunday, November 20, Marcella Kraft, our new resident at Somerset Court, had lunch with her family in the Somerset Court guest

and helper Kay, and Vivian Hansen. Jeannie won one game, and Floy won the other. Everyone got generous Somerset bucks for playing. Each one told his plans for Thanksgiving. Most were going to visit relatives. Shawn and Sandy were cooking and having company. At bingo on Tuesday, winners were Irene McKnight, Addie Rorvig three times, Doris Wellman, Mary Klauck, Aethel Anderson, Irene Cox, Betty Downen, and Vivian Hansen twice. Shawn called numbers to finish the game when Sandy had an appointment. Thanks, Sandy, Shawn and Amy. For snack and chat we had delicious yellow cupcakes. Later, Irene A., Irene C., Marcella Kraft, and Vivian played a little whist. Thanks for a good time, ladies. M.R. Hansen came for scrabble and we tied at 273. Our new word for the day was Dey, a former ruler in North Africa. M.R., Barbara, Clay and Willow Hansen plan to drive to Sioux Falls for overnight Wednesday, and swim at a motel, then drive to the St. Paul, Minn., are and on to Woodbury, Minn., Thursday. Tiffany and family from Iowa City plan to be there. The snow is melting off and the forecast is for thawing all week. Thursday, November 24, Happy Thanksgiving. A thankful heart is a happy heart. There is nothing scheduled at Somerset Court, however, we expect meals to be at the usual times. Wednesday, November 23, Ray Kraemer and son-in-law had lunch at Somerset Court, while Mildred and their daughter went out to eat. Lu’s tall son visited her November 23. Mary Hagg plans a trip to eastern South Dakota to visit her daughter. Irene McKnight’s daughter, Bev, plans to entertain a bunch of family members at her home. Vivian had a call from her granddaughter, Sheridan, a date for Thanksgiving dinner at 11:00 a.m. on November 24, was scheduled. Irene Arbach has been invited to Wall to be with her daughter and family. November 23, Bible study was held in the tranquility room. Chuck and Bonnie McCauley came to lead. Wednesday afternoon, we had a little pool with Violet Jenison, Jerald Muzzy, Sandy and Vivian. We are glad to find new pool players. November 23 was another calm day. We have not had wind since the big snow. The snow is melting gradually. Friday, some call it Black Friday, because up until this date, there was no profit. Now we are in the black. The Rapid City Journal Thanksgiving Day edition was heavy with ads. On this Friday, Somerset Court activity directors began to decorate for Christmas. Thanksgiving Day was warm and nice. Sheridan came to take me over to her house. I told her that Vernon Burns could be my cousin and she could invite him too, and she said, “Sure.” But Vernon had company, an old friend, Burjes Fitch, had come to have lunch with him. Sheridan’s mother, Gloria Hansen, was at Sheridan’s and Sheridan’s friend, a church acquaintance, Heather Musser, and her two little girls, Ana and Rosa, ages five and six. Sheridan’s children, Tiger, three, and Cecelia, one, played nicely with Ana and

dining room. Ruth Monette brought a special treat for her friend, Elaine Backs. It was a dish of big, fresh raspberries with cream and sugar. My email is now vivivi224@ yahoo.com. I got a lot of nice emails. Thank you, Holly Maudsley, Vinnie Hansen, Leonard Meyer, Crystal Jackson, M.R. Hansen and Carol Vogan. Sunday, November 20, 2011, we had church with Terry Pulse and Steve. The chapel was full. I had to sit in the front row. Eileen Tenold played piano for hymn singing. Thank you all. We were reminded that God had made the stars and the stars beyond the stars, and even stars beyond the stars beyond the stars. And yet, there is a little breath of God in each human. And how come we are so mean and ornery? One out of 10 in the United States of America are said to be hungry. Are we doing anything about that? Mostly we just plan a big dinner for Thanksgiving. I called Hans. P. Hansen Sunday afternoon and he had just received a card from his seventh grade English teacher, Nancy Ekstrum. Hans had just had a potluck Thanksgiving dinner at his church, a Baptist church in Colorado Springs. Hans would like to locate a recipe which uses Bible versus to find the ingredients. Can anyone help him out? If so, send to Hans. P. Hansen, Spruce House, 2535 Brady Drive, Colorado Springs, CO 80917. M.R. Hansen came over Sunday afternoon for a game of scrabble. Thank you, M.R. We found (out of desperation) a new word. The word is quey which means a young cow. He got a lot of points because it was a triple score word. Monday, November 21, 2011, at Somerset Court, we had crafts with Amy. Shawn and Sandy were there to help too. We made clothespin note holders in the form of turkeys. They were cute and colorful. Some residents made turkey pins for coat decorations. Ellen, Irene C., Bernie, Inez, Agnes, Vivian and an unidentified person made the novelties. Thank you to our activity directors. At lunch time Monday, I had a nice surprise. Chuck Allen and Etta Erdmann, Philip, came to see me at Somerset Court. They brought me a beautiful set of bookends for a Christmas present. Thanks, Chuck. Chuck had cut the petrified wood stone and polished it. The original rock was from the old Mark Coleman place, about 30 miles northwest of Philip. That place has special memories for me, as it was where we first went to Sunday school along in the 1920s. Irene Cox and Miss Ann Onymous beat Sandy and me at whist. Oh well. Later, Ellen, Inez, Violet, Ruth and Bernie played dominoes in the activity garden. I went to the physical therapist again for my sore shoulder. With a heating pad, he can coax out quite a bit of movement. Our Monday movie was “Cocoon.” An imaginative bit of photography and a fanciful tale. Tuesday, November 22, Shawn and Sandy gave us goofy golf after our morning exercises. Players were Irene Arbach, Irene McKnight, Inez Perli, Jeannie Alverson, Floy Olson, Mildred Young
To speak without words …
Writing is hard work, unless you are Del Bartels of Philip’s Pioneer Review. He makes it look so easy, and the read so interesting. His column, “Change Backwards” (9-22-11), was one that caught my eye because I am from “the good old days.” My first car had pedals on the floorboards to shift gears and a crank to start the engine. I hope to be able to catapult myself back in time with trips to my beloved West River South Dakota where memories are endless. These memories will be recorded in photographs, not prose. I have reached the age when I can no longer do it all, so will be giving up writing. I will miss the challenge and my long-time typist who is a sweet-faced farm girl with a smart mind and fast fingers. My interest in film was sharpened in a classroom at the University of Oregon and a seminar by former Life Magazine photographer W. Eugene Smith. I want to renew the artistic soul of photography; it is visual therapy. It is said, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” But I want to say how much I learn and remember in the Pioneer Review, like the “folksy” columns, Midland Socials and Hit and Miss. People in that area are hesitant to try anything new, so I thought about throwing my glass at the back bar in the Steakhouse & Lounge, but just finished my lunch. There are things we just don’t do in Philip. Maybe Midland. I always find something intersting though in South Dakota. Del Bartels wrote about cowgirls in Quinn, but on my last trip I didn’t see any there. But I am almost totally into photographing people. Every face is different and tells its own story. So will This photo hangs over my bed and tells its own be putting down my pen and using my Nikon and the story. Kunkle photo old Pentax Kelly Penticoff gave me instead.
Rosa. Balloons, puzzles, and trains were entertaining. Thank you, Sheridan, for the great dinner and good time. Somerset Court resident, Vi Walker, was in Philip for Thanksgiving at Kay and George Ainslie’s. Virginia Burns was there also. At Somerset Court, a bunch of us ate our big box lunches for supper together in the activity garden. Matt brought coffee.

Healthy holiday eating
by Ann Schwader, nutrition field specialist, South Dakota State University Extension, Winner Regional Center The holidays are a joyful time of year, filled with parties and other celebratory events. They are a time to be thankful for what we have and to catch up with family and friends. We all love holiday food. Mashed potatoes and gravy, pumpkin pie topped with whipped cream and sweet potatoes smothered in brown sugar and butter. The list of delicious food can go on and on. The average holiday dinner is famous for large portions and contains as much as 2,000 calories. This is the entire daily calorie budget for most men and women according to But, www.choosemyplate.com. while we’re enjoying all that good food, we often pay the price of unplanned weight gain. What can we do to prevent weight gain and still enjoy the holidays? Here are a few simple tips to help guide you through the coming month of holiday feasts. •Balance party meals with other meals during the day to stay within your daily calorie budget. •Eat something before you go to a party. Eating a little something like fruit or yogurt may keep you from overeating once you get there. •Enjoy larger portions of healthier foods such as lean meats, fresh fruit and vegetables and smaller portions of mashed potatoes and gravy, high fat meats and white breads. When it comes to desserts, eat just a few bites or take half a piece. •Don’t drink your calories. Sweet wine, apple cider, eggnog, pop and hot cocoa can each add a few hundred calories to your meal. Beverage calories can add up quickly. Drink water throughout the day, including a glass before a party. It helps fill you up and offsets dehydrating drinks such as coffee and alcohol. According to the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, moderate drinking means up to one alcoholic drink a day for women and up to two drinks for men. •Enjoy your favorites and make sure you choose the things you really love – in small portions. Don’t put certain items on your plate just because they are part of traditional holiday celebrations. •Before going back for seconds, wait 20 minutes for your food to settle to tell your brain that you’re full. You’ll probably find you’re no longer hungry. •How many extra holiday calories do you think you eat by taking a few “tiny tastes” throughout the day? Consider that three chips eaten with a delicious dip can be approximately 75 calories, one small piece of homemade peanut brittle can be approximately 80 calories and one chocolate-covered cherry can have approximately 60 calories. Hopefully, by implementing these tips, you will be able to steer your way through the holiday feasts so that you will get to enjoy your favorite foods and your health.

Dorcas E. Koerner_________________
Dorcas E. Koerner died November 11, 2011, at the Good Samaritan Center in Sioux Falls, S.D. She was born March 10, 1924, to Miles and Alice Conner of Philip. She grew up and received her education at a country school. She graduated from Midland High School and then went to South Dakota State College in Brookings. After getting her degree in home economics education, she taught in Miller and Bridgewater. She was united in marriage to Elmer Koerner in Bridgewater on October 16, 1949. Dorcas was a member of the First Presbyterian Church, Ladies Aid, and taught Sunday school. She also belonged to an Extension club and was a 4-H leader. She was employed by the Bridgewater Tribune as a typesetter for almost 20 years. She enjoyed sewing, gardening and canning. In 2000, she moved to an apartment in Sioux Falls. She enjoyed playing cards, bowling on the Wii and made beautiful embroidered cards. Grateful for having shared her life are her children, Karen (Tommy) Petrik of Ethan, Lynn (Kim) Koerner of Edinburgh, Va., Mardella Koerner of Sioux Falls, and Loretta (Brad) Schroeder of Renner; 10 grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; a sister, Janet, of Sioux Falls; and numerous nieces, nephews and friends. She was preceded in death by her husband on November 3, 1999; her parents; and one great-grandson. Services were held November 13, 2011, at Walter Funeral Home in Bridgewater with Rev. Melvin Koehn officiating. Interment was in the Bridgewater City Cemetery. Mike and Debbie Clements are the proud grandparents of a baby boy born November 9. He was 19 3/4 inches long and weighed 6 pounds and 12.8 ounces. He was named Zane Michael and his proud parents are Luke and Trisha Clements. The Luke Clements family came to the home of Mike Clements Wednesday and all went to the home of Donna Newman for Thanksgiving. Other guests at Donna’s were Glenn and Dianne Parsons and their daughter, Shayla and Jeremy Delaney and boys, Warren and Shirley Sweezy, and daughter Holly, Shirley’s mother, Ruth Sharp, and Chuck and Ruth Carstensen. Debbie said that everyone enjoyed seeing Zane. Luke and family returned home Friday. Marvin and Vicki Eide left Wednesday to go to Gillette, Wyo., to spend Thanksgiving with their daughter, Carla Eide, Kiley and Taegan. Brayden Fitch came and stayed at Marvins to take care of the cattle and the dogs. He ate at Mary’s house as he said that he does not like to cook. After chores were done, Mary and Brayden went to Trevor and Christa’s for Thanksgiving. It was a fun day. We played uno and those boys are aggressive. They had no sympathy for anyone, not even their great-grandmother. Marvin and Vicki returned early enough Friday to feed, so Brayden didn’t have to come back. Phyllis Coleman had shoulder surgery and has to take therapy for a few weeks. Her daughter, Dawn, who lives near Watertown is here helping. Phyllis said Dawn has been doing a lot of house cleaning while she is here. Dawn was planning to cook Thanksgiving dinner at Marvins for family who are able to come. Dawn’s two sons plan to come and do some hunting while here. We hope you have a speedy recovery, Phyllis. Becky (Poss) Wiebelhaus is home at Rapid City now and she still has a lot of therapy left. Her husband, Todd, is taking care of her at home. Marvin and Vicki Eide spent time this week visiting at Philip Health Services with Gladys Smith, Dorothy Urban and Jim Gottsleben. It was so nice of Philip Health Services to invite people who had no place to go for Thanksgiving to come and eat there. The Jim Oldenbergs had Thanksgiving at their house. Those coming to share the day were their

daughter, Debbie and Newton Brown, Faith, and grandson, Clay Brown, Rapid City. Deloris Poss and Mary Poss cohosted Thanksgiving at their house in town for family. Justin Poss was here from Sioux Falls to enjoy the day with his family. Deeta and Terk were unable to be there, but they had all just been together for Deloris’ 75th birthday, November 5. I went to Philip for the light parade and the supper at the fire hall and saw a lot of the neighbors. It was a good parade and there was a lot of work put in by those who made the floats. Donnie Poss, from our neighborhood, had his vintage 1973 Lincoln car in the parade. His grandson, Carl, was so proud to be able to ride with Donnie in the parade. The parade was appreciated and enjoyed by all those in attendance. Thanks, everyone. Most of Ted Kjerstad’s family enjoyed Thanksgiving together and Ted and Laura’s with everyone furnishing a dish. After the noon meal, they enjoyed visiting and the cousins enjoyed playing together. In the evening before going home, all enjoyed a soup supper. The Mel Smith family was all together and there were lots of pictures taken. I was not able to reach some of you for your holiday news, so you must have been gone. Will try to catch you later. I thought I was dreaming or out of my mind as I looked out my window and saw a bull go by with a tire around his neck. So just to make sure, I got in my pickup and went to see and sure enough, a bull with a tire around his neck was out by the shop. So, I called Marvin. He asked me twice what I had just said! I don’t think that he believed me. But he came down to see and with his two dogs, he got the bull in and locked him down in the chute. He got the tire off and it was no easy job. When he turned the bull out, he just started on a dog trot off toward the herd, one happy bull I am sure! Sure glad it was November and not April 1 or Marvin would never have come down. Now this is a true story, it’s not no bull. Now, I think this could be the bull story of the year, don’t you? No act of kindness is ever wasted. _ Aesop So let’s all be a little kinder to everyone as we get ready for Christmas and remember what Christmas really means this year. It’s not just money or presents, it’s love.

GOD'S TWO POEMS by Cornelius R. Stam In Romans 1:18-20 the Apostle Paul declares that ungodly men are "without excuse" because they are surrounded by the evidences of the Creator's "eternal power and Godhead." Our Authorized Version calls the creation, in this passage, "the things that are made," but in the Greek it is called literally "the poyeema," from which we get our word poem. The Apostle refers, of course, to the harmony of God's creation, and is it not indeed amazing how billions of heavenly bodies can continually revolve in the vastness of space and never collide! And are not the flowers, the seasons, the sunsets all part of a harmonious creation, which God alone could have conceived and set to music? But very interestingly, this word poyeema is used just once more in Scripture. We find it in Eph. 2:10, where it is translated "workmanship." Let us consider this passage in its context: "For by grace are ye saved, through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are His workmanship [Gr., poyeema], created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them" (Eph. 2:8-10). Romans speaks of the poem of creation, Ephesians of the poem of redemption, and the latter is the more wonderful. An old hymn says: "'Twas great to speak a world from naught; 'tis greater to redeem." In this poem of redemption which God has composed, we believers too often want to change some word or phrase. We would like this or that in our circumstances to be different. Ah, but this would destroy the meter and meaning of God's new creation. Thank God, when we believers go to be with Christ, we will see the beauty and glory of the poem of redemption. Then we will rejoice that He did indeed "work all things together for good" for us.
To the Reader: Some of our Two Minutes articles were written many years ago by Pastor C. R. Stam for publication in newspapers. When many of these articles were later compiled in book form, Pastor Stam wrote this word of explanation in the Preface: "It should be borne in mind that the newspaper column, Two Minutes With the Bible, has now been published for many years, so that local, national and international events are discussed as if they occurred only recently. Rather than rewrite or date such articles, we have left them just as they were when first published. This, we felt, would add to the interest, especially since our readers understand that they first appeared as newspaper articles." We hope that you'll agree that while some of the references in these articles are dated, the spiritual truths taught therein are timeless.

Thanksgiving has come and gone and thoughts of Christmas are in the air. I don’t know about you, but speaking for myself I stayed away from Black Friday shopping. I am not a big fan of crowds and some people tend to get a bit obsessed when it comes to getting that certain something on sale. Speaking of Christmas. We are in the season of Advent and this Sunday, November 27, was the first Sunday of Advent. With the media telling of the number of shopping days left before Christmas, with presents to buy, and Christmas decorating to do, Christmas cards to get sent, and the baking to do – we’re stressed out, tired out, and caroled-out before the day even arrives. And because of the stress of it all, we oftentimes lose sight of the meaning and spirit of Advent. This first Sunday of Advent, Father Kevin shared the story of the first hunting trip he and his brother went on with their dad when they were just young boys. Their dad told them to be silent and to watch and to listen as they waited for that deer. And from that story he went into the season of Advent and the message was – to spend time in silence and to watch and to listen for the Lord’s coming. Quiet time is good. It clears the mind. Floyd and Lily Lund, Rapid City, just returned from a Mediterranean cruise. Lily’s parents were Henry and Anna (Fosheim) Walker and they lived in Bryant, S.D. Anna was one of the daughters of Thor and Gjertina Fosheim, so Lily is a cousin to a bunch of us in the Midland area. Coming with them on this trip were Diane, Beverly, and Bill Mulder’s wife, Jan. Bill also went with them on the trip coming from Afghanistan and meeting them at the motel in Rome. Diane, Beverly, and Bill are the children of Lily’s late sister, Margaret Mulder, and her husband, Pete. They spent a day in Rome on their own and then took a guided tour the next day, boarding the 15-story Navigator of the Seas with Royal Caribbean. Reports are they had a wonderful time, a day in Greece, one in Sicily, one in Crete, and one in Turkey. Lily reports the ruins were fascinating, the people kind, the food was delicious, and the ship was great. Friday, November 18, Keith Hunt and Christine Niedan left for Smith Center, Kan., to surprise their niece and nephews, Deidra, Blake, and Stuart Hackerott. On Saturday night, Keith, Christine, Stuart and Brian Hackerott went to watch Deidra in her high school musical play, “Hankerin Hillbillies.” Sunday, Brian, Keith, Christine and Blake went to Stuart’s fifth and sixth grade basketball game which they won, which made it exciting. They now have a record of two wins and zero loses. Because of having to work, Lisa Hackerott attended Deidra’s play that night. The group attended Blake’s game Monday night. Blake starts for his home team and their record now stands at four and two. The Hackerott kids came back to Midland with Keith and Christine Tuesday night spending the Thanksgiving holiday. Lisa had to work. Wednesday, November 23, Teresa Palmer came from Murdo, staying with her sister, Christine Niedan, for the Thanksgiving holiday. That night, Teresa, Christine, Deidra, Blake and Stuart went to Philip to visit their mom and grandmother, Ida Hunt, at the nursing home. They also stopped in to visit with Uncle Roy Roseth. Roy and Carol Hunt hosted Thanksgiving dinner for Ida Hunt, Keith Hunt, Christine Niedan, Teresa Palmer, Deidra, Blake, and Stuart Hackerott, Cam Meinzer, Sam Root, and Ivan Schanzenbach. Teresa, Christine, Keith and Deidra took Ida back to Philip, stopping in for a quick visit with Roy Roseth. Joining those previously named for supper were Jan Tolton, Jerry Hunt and Michelle Meinzer. Friday, November 25, Christine, Deidra, and Stuart went with Teresa to view the Christmas trees at the Capitol in Pierre. They report there were many beautiful trees and decorations. Sunday, November 27, Keith and Christine took the Hackerott kids back to Kansas for school. Karel Reiman and Mark Reiman, Kadoka, spent Thanksgiving Day with Karel’s brother, Ed Eisenbraun, and his wife, Linda, Rapid City. Karel and Ed’s mother, Goldie Eisenbraun, and their sister, Paula Eisenbraun, Rapid City, were also there. As were Ed and Linda’s daughter, Darcey Eisenbraun, and daughter, Haley, Wright, Wyo., and their daughter, Tawney, and her daughter, Dancey, Rapid City, and friends, Pete and Kristi and family. Everyone had a good time visiting and having a good Thanksgiving meal. Morris and Barbara Jones, their daughter, Carrie, Wes, and boys,

Kalvin Eisenbraun, north of Philip, having a chance to get acquainted with her newest great-granddaughter, Karle Mae. Little Karle joins one-year-old sister, Kaydence. This makes three great-grandchildren for Judy. Congratulations. Judy and Crystal did some Black Friday shopping as did Angie and Carissa Doolittle. Brave folks. Judy reports they are working on the Christmas program at the Cheyenne School where Connie Johnson is the teacher and Judy is teacher’s assistant. We wish to express our sincere sympathy to the family of longtime Belvidere resident Velma DeVries. We also wish to express our sincere sympathy to the family of Brenda Traut of Pierre. Brenda attended school in Midland at one time when her parents Olin and Freda Peters and four children were a part of the Midland community. Saturday, November 19, Paula Jones, Rapid City, arrived at her parents, Gene and Audrey Jones. After lunch, the three drove to Verona, Wis., to Brenda and Todd Nierman, Trevor, Emily, and Zoey's for a visit and for Thanksgiving. Wednesday evening, Lisa and Matt Foley and Jaycie Geiman, Wagner, and Linda and Brandan Giltner, Triston and Taylor, Meriden, Kan., arrived at the Nierman home for Thanksgiving. Family members enjoyed football, sightseeing, shopping, visiting, eating, and just being together. All returned to their own homes and reality Sunday, November 27. Wednesday evening, Christopher and Stephanie Nemec, Mitchell, arrived at the home of his parents, Jerry and Sonia Nemec. Thanksgiving Day morning, Christopher, Stephanie, Jerry and Sonia headed for Pierre where Christopher entered the 5K run with monies going to the food bank of Pierre and Ft. Pierre. Christopher’s aunt, Dana (Meyers) Malferno, and three boys came to help us cheer him on. Everyone then went to the home of Phil and Bernie Meyers for Thanksgiving dinner. Phil and Bernie’s sons, Darron and Peg Meyers and three boys and Damon Meyers and friend, Sarah, and two kids, all of Colorado, were there to spend some time with family and for Thanksgiving. Phil and Bernie’s daughter, Dana, John and three boys have been staying at Phil and Bernie’s for the past six months as their home was one of those with flood issues. They have been busy working at fixing their home from

Howard, Arline Petoske, Silverleaf in Philip, Kory and April Petoske and daughter Alexis, Harrisburg, Jordan and Amy (Petoske) Miller, Sioux Falls, and Bob and Ardis McCormick, Kadoka, were Thanksgiving Day guests of Jim and Barb Petoske.

Tyler and Angel Nemec and family spent their first night in their new home Saturday, November 26. And though there continues to be work in progress on their house, they are happy to be in their own home. After being the lone house on this side of the street for a number of years, it is good to have neighbors. Change of date: St. William Altar Society will have their Christmas meeting December 6 at the home of Sue Nemec with Sally Ehlers as cohostess. There will be a potluck supper starting at 5:30 MT., followed by a short meeting and there will also be a gift exchange. Don’t forget Christmas in Midland on December 3 at the American Legion Hall. It is a day of fun, visiting, viewing the Christmas trees, a visit and picture taking with Santa, and a time of getting into the Christmas spirit. Paul and JoAnn Bork and Shelby spent Thanksgiving in Loveland, Colo., with Angie, David, Jeremy and Vivian Anderson. They went down Thursday and came back Saturday. They even braved the crowds and did some Black Friday shopping. Lori and Tracy Konst, Brooke and Brett, hosted Thanksgiving dinner at their Sturgis home. Enjoying the day and delicious food were Gary, Deb, Gavin and Garrett Snook, Pat Snook, Rene Konst and Terry Buchert, Gene and Dick Hudson, and Konsts' neighbors, Mike, Carissa and Morgan. Garrett Snook played alto sax in the honors band, which was held at Spearfish High School Tuesday evening. Gary, Deb, and Pat Snook attended the concert and report that it was excellent. Thanksgiving Day guests at the home of Judy Fosheim were Crystal (Fosheim) and Levi Neuharth, Johnathon and Justin, David and Lisa Neuharth, Mahlon Alcock, Patrick Fosheim and friend, Melissa Felion, and son, Baxter, of Wyoming. Saturday, Judy Fosheim visited her granddaughter, Heather and
lunch out and a chance to visit. Saturday, Christopher and Stephanie headed back to Mitchell. It was a busy, fun, few days. I am sending my news in early this Monday morning. If I missed your news, I will put it in next week’s news column. Wishing each of you a good day and a good week.
Register for depredation hunts
As winter approaches in South Dakota, the Game, Fish and Parks Department reminds hunters of unique opportunities that may exist later this winter to reduce problem-causing wildlife. GFP has an active wildlife damage management program that assists landowners with depredation abatement techniques. However, when other methods are not effective, GFP may use willing hunters to help eliminate wildlife that cause problems for farmers and ranchers. “Winter depredation hunts are a valuable tool that GFP may use to alleviate wildlife damage to landowners’ stored feed supplies,” said Keith Fisk, wildlife damage program administrator. “South Dakota residents may register for potential depredation hunts for deer, antelope and turkey, starting December 1, 2011.” Hunters can register for depredation hunts at http://gfp.sd.gov/ hunting/depredation-hunts.aspx. Fisk encouraged hunters to register for counties in their areas. “Depredation hunts are often time sensitive, and winter weather can sometimes make travel difficult for participating hunters,” Fisk said. “For a successful hunt, GFP needs participating hunters to be available at hunt locations almost immediately. Consequently, I advise hunters to choose locations that are close to home or within close driving distances.” Winter depredation hunts focus on assisting landowners with problem wildlife, but they also provide hunters with additional hunting opportunities after hunting seasons are closed. For more information, visit the GFP website http://gfp.sd.gov/ or call 605-223-7660.
Turn In Poachers 2010 statistics
Fall hunting is now in full swing, and the South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks is reminding hunters who see illegal activities to call the Turn In Poachers (TIP) hotline at 888-683-7226. The hotline, which is answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week, allows people to report information about wildlife violations – and if they choose – remain anonymous. Those who would prefer to email TIP reports may do so on the GFP website: http://gfp.sd.gov/agency/ law-enforcement/turn-in-poachers.aspx From July 1, 2010, through June 30, 2011, a total of 394 TIP cases were investigated. Those investigations led to 146 arrests or citations. As a result of successful cases closed during that period, poachers were assessed more than $27,000 in fines and were sentenced to 1,730 days in jail. Offenders were also assessed almost $50,000 in civil damages. Wildlife Protection, Inc., the nonprofit agency handling TIP rewards, paid $8,725 to those who took the initiative to report wildlife violations. Since the beginning of the South Dakota TIP program in 1984, there have been more than 10,000 investigations, leading to more than 3,000 arrests or citations. Violators have been required to pay $650,000 in fines and more than $500,000 in civil damages. During the same 28-year period, nearly $130,000 in TIP rewards have gone to witnesses who provided information on violations. “These numbers are proof that South Dakotans are serious about protecting our natural resources,” said Charlie Wharton, TIP coordinator for GFP. “As caretakers of nature, we all have a vested interest in the public trust of preserving wildlife for future generations. It’s heartening to have people take an active interest in reporting violators and protecting our resources.” Wharton reminds those who witness wildlife violations, and even those who learn of them later, to call their local conservation officers or use the TIP hotline. While any information can be useful, those things that can be most beneficial are accurate physical descriptions of people committing hunting and fishing violations, specific geographical information and vehicle information. The most helpful vehicle information is a license plate number, along with the general make, model, color or any unique markings and graphics that might improve the chances of officers locating them. “South Dakota has a limited number of law enforcement officers patrolling our state,” Wharton said. “The good people of South Dakota can make a real difference in stopping poaching.”

Board approves bonding resolution, new programs for technical institutes
The South Dakota Board of Education approved two new programs at South Dakota’s technical institutes, as well as a facility bonding resolution during a regularly scheduled meeting today in Mitchell. Approval of the bonding resolution will allow the technical institutes to proceed with Phase II of the Statewide Facility Plan. The resolution provides for $12.5 million from the Bonding Authority, with a total estimated cost of $14.6 million for the project. Once completed, the project will create additional laboratory and equipment space for the Agriculture, Environmental Technology, and Heavy Equipment Operator programs at Lake Area Technical Institute (LATI) in Watertown. LATI President Deb Shephard says the school has experienced record enrollment levels, with student numbers increasing for eight consecutive years. LATI’s Ag program has 50 more students enrolled this year than a year ago, and 97 percent of the program’s graduates stay in state and get jobs related to their studies. Graduates of LATI’s Environmental Technology program average more than $17 an hour within six months of entering the workforce. Approved today by the board was the Heavy Equipment Operator program, which LATI will begin offering in fall of 2013. Graduates of the program will be able to operate power construction equipment to excavate, move and grade earth, erect structures or pour concrete or other hard-surfaced pavement. “The program builds off of our already successful Diesel Technology program and infuses a few elements from our Welding, Machining, Electronics and Aviation programs,” Shephard said. “Basically, it gives our students one more option for a unique specialization.” A new program approved for Mitchell Technical Institute is Farm Power Technology. According to MTI President Greg VonWald, graduates of the two-year program will be able to gain employment at agricultural power equipment dealerships as specialized service technicians. South Dakota’s other two technical institutes are Southeast Technical Institute in Sioux Falls and Western Dakota Technical Institute in Rapid City. The four schools boast a combined total enrollment of more than 6,000 students.

Monster whitetail
... “It’s the biggest whitetail buck I’ve ever seen in Haakon County; heck, it’s the biggest I’ve ever seen,” said local taxidermist Marty Hansen. Vance Martin, Midland, dropped this typical five-by-five trophy on his grandfather’s ranch west of Midland. Martin first saw the buck at about 400 yards, then ran and belly crawled to within about 100 yards. Cresting the rise, Martin saw the buck looking back at him. Instantly, the buck was “hightailing it out of there. He looked back one last time, turned broadside at 200 yards. His doe held him up,” said Martin. “It happened quick, kind of just the way I like it. The adrenaline, the buck fever, didn’t have too much time to kick in.” Though the antler’s are trophy size, the buck’s body size was less than expected. Hansen guessing that, with these antlers, it would normally weigh in around 225 pounds field dressed, but actually was less than 140 pounds field dressed. The buck appeared to have been in good health and in its maturing Photo by Del Bartels years. Martin used a scoped 300 ultra mag.

– women veterans health care program –
by Norris Preston past national vice-commander the American Legion The Department of Veterans Affairs has always recognized and appreciated the sacrifice that families make when military service crosses generations. VA has watched with pride as this special generational service has increasingly extended to mothers and their daughters. Of the 22.7 million living veterans, more than 1.8 million are women, comprising nearly eight percent of the total veteran population and six percent of all veterans who use VA health care services. VA estimates women veterans will constitute 10 percent of the veteran population and 9.5 percent of VA patients by 2020. “The number of women using VA health care has doubled in the last decade. We are working to ensure they receive the high quality care they have earned,” said Patricia Hayes, chief consultant of the VA’s women veterans health strategic health care group. “We must deliver on our promise to give them the best care anywhere.” Women 45 and older make up the largest subpopulation seeking healthcare. To meet their unique needs, providers are trained in all aspects of women’s health, including general primary care, mental health care, osteoporosis management, heart disease, menopausal services and age related issues such as diabetes. Preventive screenings for breast and cervical cancer are both areas in which VA excels. Soon, all VA facilities will offer comprehensive primary care for women from a single provider.

Lee and Mary Briggs were Thanksgiving guests at the home of their daughter, Keva Joens, and family near Spearfish. Mary went to Keva's Wednesday, and Lee drove up after the cattle were fed Thursday. Others attending were Clay and Rea (Briggs) Riggle and family, Pierre, and Mary's sisters, Janie Davis and Sue Starr and their families. Later in the day, friends from Whitewood arrived to share in the festivities. All told, there were about 25 people enjoying the holiday together. Lee and Mary returned home Thursday evening. Friday, they traveled to Aberdeen for repairs, and Mary got to do a little shopping before they returned home. Marge Briggs had the major portion of her family home for Thanksgiving. The group gathered at Ed Briggs' home, and everyone was there except for a couple of Marge's grandchildren. They enjoyed good food, visiting and card playing, as well as some hunting. Ed's son, Casey, was home from his studies at Watertown. Marge's granddaughter, Stephanie, brought bouquets of roses for the Chase Briggs family as well as the Adam Roseth family in celebration of their babies – one already born and one to be born shortly. What a thoughtful young woman! Dorothy Paulson spent Monday through Wednesday of last week in Rapid City with her friend, Myrna Hartmann, while Myrna had eye surgery. Thanksgiving Day, Nels and Dorothy were in Ft. Pierre sharing the holiday with the Hartmann family. Their friend, Otis Funk, was at the Paulson place Sunday to get some firewood. Friend Clint Habeck and his son were also out over the weekend doing some deer hunting. Dick and Gene Hudson traveled to the Tracy and Lori Konst home north of Sturgis to join family for Thanksgiving Day. Friday, Dick and Gene went to Ft. Pierre and met Gene's friend, Janice Ring, at the cattle sale. They enjoyed a nice visit. Gene and Janice have been friends since college, and Janice taught for a time at Robbs Flat School years ago. Jon and Connie Johnson and boys were in Wheaton, Minn., to celebrate Thanksgiving with Jon's mother and some of his cousins. The went to Minnesota Wednesday and returned home Friday. Billy and Arlyne Markwed hosted grandson Tate Gabriel to Thanksgiving dinner at a local restaurant in Pierre. Friday, Cindy (Markwed) and Bruce Bresee came to the Markwed ranch and spent the night. They were on their way back from Sioux Falls, where they had spent Thanksgiving with Bruce's father. Saturday, Cindy and Bruce returned to their home in Spearfish, and Billy and Arlyne headed to Rapid City to attend the Northwest Ranch Cowboy’s Association Finals rodeo in Rapid City. Billy and Arlyne spent Saturday night at the Bresee home in Spearfish, did a little shopping Sunday, and returned to Rapid City for another session of rodeo. They visited with Allen and Fran Stirling at the rodeo. Allen and Fran live near Newell now, and they worked for Billy and Arlyne years ago. The Markweds returned home Sunday night. Ron and Helen Beckwith had family home for Thanksgiving. Their daughter, Lori, came home Tuesday, and daughter Cheryl Ulmen and family arrived Thanksgiving Day. Rose (Beckwith) and Levi Briggs weren't able to join the celebration because their son, Raif, was sick with the flu. Rose and Levi's daughter, Kira, rode out to the country with her Aunt Cheryl and Uncle Marc, so she got to enjoy the day playing with her cousins. Gary and Anne Beckwith were also Thanksgiving guests. Helen said

she and Lori got the Christmas tree put up and decorated, so she is well on her way to being prepared for the next holiday! T.J. and Jeanine Gabriel and family were entertaining the flu for Thanksgiving, so there wasn't much celebrating at their house. Jeanine's parents were planning to come to the ranch, but they decided to avoid the flu. Hope the Gabriels are feeling better! It was also a quiet Thanksgiving Day at the Clark and Carmen Alleman home. They had planned to travel to their daughter Kelly's home in Pierre, but Clark was dealing with the flu also, so they stayed home and ate toast. That flu bug that is going around is pretty nasty! Carmen traveled to Philip to visit her father, Roy Roseth. Roy continues as a swing bed patient at the hospital there. Frank and Shirley Halligan were in Philip Tuesday taking care of business and attending the cattle sale. They were at their home in Ft. Pierre for Thanksgiving, joining some of the neighbors for a potluck meal. Sunday, they attended church in Ft. Pierre and had lunch at a local restaurant. In the afternoon, Frank attended a fundraiser at the Kirley Hall.

My sympathy to Murdock and Lynn Halligan and family. Lynn's mother passed away in Texas Thanksgiving evening. Her funeral service was held Saturday. Murdock and their school age children returned home Sunday, and Lynn and her father will be coming to South Dakota midweek. Max and Joyce Jones joined family at the home of their daughter and son-in-law, Kim and Dave Ferries, near Onida Thanksgiving Day. Friday, Joyce hosted her daughter, daughter-in-law and grandkids to a performance of the Nutcracker in Rapid City. Joyce said the kids enjoyed it, but at intermission time, one of the grandsons asked when the performers were going to start talking. Later this week, the grandchildren in Onida will perform their Christmas concert – tis the season. And this is a good time to remind you all to mark your calendars for the Cheyenne School Christmas program. The program will be held Thursday, December 15, at 7:00 p.m. CST, at the Kirley Hall. It is an event worth attending, and it is guaranteed to put you in the Christmas spirit! (continued on page 10)

Greetings from partly sunny/partly cloudy, slightly cool northeast Haakon County. We have been so fortunate to have wonderful weather lately. We had some snow the weekend before Thanksgiving, but most of it has melted, and we had some strong wind over the weekend, but it only lasted a day. It is the end of November, after all – we could be wearing snow boots and long underwear and dealing with nasty roads! Instead, we are enjoying temperatures in the 40s and above, and the cows are still able to graze in the pastures instead of being fed every day. Life is good! The Thanksgiving holiday gave us the opportunity to sit back and take stock of the things we are thankful for. And with all the hype about Black Friday shopping hours and bargains to be had, I was really thankful that I don't live near one of those big stores where all the shopping fanatics were lining up. I know there are people who enjoy the thrill of the Black Friday experience, but I'm not one of them. I'll wait until the crowd clears and the craziness abates. I may not get the "best" deal, but it will be good for my peace of mind (and probably my blood pressure, too!)

(continued from page 9) Kevin and Mary Neuhauser had all of their children home for Thanksgiving. Son Nick attends college in Watertown, daughter Brianna attends college in Sioux Falls, and daughter Sarah is doing pharmacy rotations, currently working in Ft. Thompson. Thanksgiving Day, Kevin and family traveled to Highmore to share Thanksgiving dinner with his mother, Ruth Neuhauser. They spent part of the afternoon with Ruth, then traveled to Miller to visit Mary's mother who is a patient in the hospital there. Friday, they celebrated Thanksgiving at the ranch. Nick returned to Watertown Saturday, and Sarah worked in Pierre that day. Brianna and Mary left the ranch Sunday morning to return to school and work, respectively. It was a busy, family-filled week for Clint and Laura Alleman. Tuesday, Laura and daughter, Alivya, and Laura's mother, Joy Yost, made a trip to Pierre to do some shopping. pre-Thanksgiving Wednesday, Laura and Alivya went to Hayes to spend time with Laura's grandmother, uncle and cousin who were visiting from Nebraska. Thanksgiving Day, Clint, Laura and Alivya were in Pierre at the Kelly and Anthony Nelson home for Thanksgiving dinner. On the way home, they spent time in Hayes joining the Yost family celebration. Saturday, the Yosts visited at the Alleman home – the guys were hunting and the ladies were visiting. Sunday, Clint, Laura and Alivya traveled to Hayes to spend the day with the Yosts. Duane and Lola Roseth were Thanksgiving Day guests at the home of their daughter, Kayce, and her husband, John Gerlach, in Rapid City. Other guests included Thor and Jackie Roseth, Rhett Roseth, Harlan and Sandy Gerlach (John's parents) and Andy Gerlach (brother). Friday, Thor Roseth was at the ranch and had lunch with Lola and Duane. Lola sounded great when I talked with her this week – so glad she is regaining her health! Bill and Polly Bruce were in Pierre last Tuesday, getting groceries and supplies. Thanksgiving guests at their home included son Andy and his daughter, Allison, son Jim and his son, Brandon, and son Vince and his friend, Katie. Polly said it was a smaller group than usual, and everyone fit around the same table! Andy and Jim spent a couple of days helping work on the new building before returning to their homes. Thanksgiving afternoon, Ty and Tell Saucerman came to visit and see Vince's building project. Monday, Tell Saucerman came back to the Bruce ranch and will spend a couple of days helping Vince install a wood stove in the barn portion of his new building. Progress continues on the building, but Polly didn't know for sure when it was expected to be
completed. Ruth Neuhauser enjoying being able to have her son, Kevin, and family join her for Thanksgiving dinner followed by a nice visit. Other than that, it has been a relatively quiet week for Ruth. At the Neuhauser ranch, we had three of our four children home for Thanksgiving. Lori came from Alexandria, Va., Scott, Corry and children came from Spearfish, as did our daughter, Chelsea. Our nephew, Dylan, also joined us for Thanksgiving. Daughter Jennifer and her husband, Ross, were entertaining friends from Tennessee at their home in Salem for the holiday, so they weren't able to come to the ranch. Our grandchildren, Marisa (six) and Austin (two), thoroughly love being at the ranch, so we spent a lot of time outside visiting the cows, petting the horses, climbing on tractors, driving the golf cart and counting cats. The cats that were being counted are barn cats and not very tame, so getting them to sit still and be counted was a little tricky! Friday evening, Scott and Corry and Lori went to Pierre to have supper with their cousin, Justin Neuhauser, and family, Watertown. Craig and Luke Neuhauser also joined the group for supper. Chelsea returned home Friday, and Scott, Corry and family returned home Saturday. I took Lori back to the airport in Rapid City Saturday so she could return to the East Coast. It sure seemed quiet around this place Sunday! There is still turkey left, but Randy is delighted that it is now in the freezer – no more flaming turkey delights in the immediate future. This week, I am grateful for the wonderful weather we have been enjoying. It made Thanksgiving travel much easier and safer for folks, and it is allowing our farmers and ranchers to get some of the work done without battling the snow and cold. The warmer temperatures save on energy costs, and these temperatures are also easier on the people, animals, and equipment. It wouldn't hurt my feelings one bit if our weather could stay this way until April, then it could start warming up! I know that is unrealistic, but it would be nice. I hope you are taking advantage of the nice weather – if nothing else, just go out for a walk and get some fresh air! Also, as you are driving, be careful of the deer. Even with the heavy hunting pressure we have seen, there are still lots of deer in the ditches. And one more thing, now that Thanksgiving is over for the year, it is time to prepare for Christmas. And a good way to get in the Christmas spirit is to do something nice for someone – something as simple as a smile, a phone call, or a kind word can make a world of difference in some person's life. And after you get the smile and the good word out of the way, you'll probably feel like baking some cookies for someone who can't bake, or shoveling snow for an elderly person – the list goes on and on. Not all Christmas gifts need to be purchased! Go out and make it a wonderful week!

I would like to thank all of my family and friends who came to my birthday and retirement party, and to everyone who sent birthday cards. You really made my 60th birthday a great day. Thanks again, Henry Chapell Thanks to the Legion for the enjoyable evening and to the sponsors for the gifts I won at bingo. Cliff Ramsey Thank you, Pioneer Review, for the turkey I won. Enid Schulz Thank you to the nursing home for their very good Thanksgiving dinner with turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, dressing, salad, veggies, cranberries and pumpkin pie. The girls who served us were so nice and the tables so well decorated. Everything was so good – we enjoyed the good food and visiting with all. Another thank you to the many who helped me enter the business places with their heavy doors! Hazel Thompson Mildred Radway Thank you to the Philip Nursing Home, cooks and staff for the great meal the day before Thanksgiving. The food was awesome! Good work! Thank you to the nurses and aides. We watched how compassionate you all were with the residents. You all are very special people and you should all be very proud of yourselves and the work you do. Also, thanks to the many volunteers who helped. Very enjoyable! God bless, Rick & Selma Thorson I want to thank Ingram’s Hardware for the turkey I won. I also want to thank the businesses for doing this. Kay Ainslie Sorry I was asleep when the Cradles to Crayons Day Care children left the cute Thanksgiving decoration.

(continued from page 10) the bowling alley. They were in town to play at the nursing home that evening. A congratulation is in order for Max and Nancy on their 40th anniversary. I told them all I knew of a great band that played for our 25th, 40th and 50th dances (that would be them!) I met Lee Vaughan for Civil Air Patrol. The wreath orders arrived. That evening, I was among the bowlers, filling in for Ed Morrison. Tuesday, Tony Harty joined the coffee drinkers at the local cafe and then got some ingredients for snack stuff and made goodies to take to the Herbers for Thanksgiving. Tuesday evening, Don and Vi Moody returned to the ranch and spent Wednesday fixing fences and that evening started their Thanksgiving shopping in Philip, getting gifts for little ones and surprises to give to Vi's cousins, Henry and Elaine Roghair, and family Sandee and Jessica Gittings and Daniel visited at the Robin Gittings home Wednesday morning. Kelsey had gotten home Tuesday night for the holiday and Kinsey Gittings and friend, Natalie, joined them all for a visit. Sandee, Jessica and Daniel returned home Wednesday evening. Wednesday, Tony Harty enjoyed coffee with the folks about town. He visited Kathy Brown in the afternoon then went to bingo at the local bar and was quite a winner. Wednesday morning, I was again at the bowling alley. Phyllis Word was dismissed from the overnight at the hospital and I picked her up at the Silverleaf, where she had lunch and was visiting Blanche Dolezal and others. I enjoyed coffee, dessert, and visiting as well. I pulled up a chair to visit with Wanda Heeb and Arlene Petoske. Marie Gartner sent her greetings to folks in Kadoka. Bill and I went to Harrisburg in the afternoon to enjoy Thanksgiving with the family at the home of granddaughter Amanda and Adam Claflin. Cathy Fiedler reported that their week started off cold, with snow on the ground, then turned out to be beautiful as they went into Thanksgiving. Wednesday, Ralph and Cathy Fiedler headed for Philip early, arriving at the nursing home to have an early Thanksgiving dinner of roast beef with all the trimmings with Cathy's mom, Katy Drageset. The meal was hosted by the staff of the nursing home. They visited awhile after lunch, then stopped by the sale barn cafe to see Richard and Diana Stewart for a few minutes before returning to Sturgis, since they had to get food ready for Thanksgiving dinner. Jessica Gittings and Daniel were at the Eric Heltzel home Thanksgiving. How our family has grown up. It used to be that I would make strips of papers with things we were thankful for and everyone would draw one out and read it. This year, without any crib notes, each of us were able to express the many things we were thankful for. At Amanda and Adams’ for the holiday were daughter Sandra May, Chase May and Carley, daughter Shelley Seager and Mike Rath, Eric Seager, Chaciel, Aviana and Eli. After dinner, it was time to enjoy the sunshine and help put up some Christmas lights. Shelley and Mike were the first to take off, planning to stay overnight in Mitchell. Chase and Carley returned to Madison, and the rest of us were overnight guests. Speaking of Christmas lights, boy, having nice weather really got folks in the mood to decorate. As you drive around the towns, homes glow with the spirit of Christmas. Thursday, Ralph and Cathy hosted dinner for the Don Klumb family and the Eric Hanson family. It was 65˚ that day, so windows were open and the snow melted fast. After dinner, the grandkids worked on their Christmas list for grandpa and grandma. Football was watched and a good card game was enjoyed. Later in the afternoon, pie was enjoyed by all before both families headed back to Spearfish. No Black Friday shopping was done by anyone here, just a quite relaxing day at home. Friday night, we got a good rain mixed with some light snow and Saturday was a very windy and cold day. Sunday we enjoyed another beautiful day of 62˚. Thanksgiving Day, Tony Harty went to his brother's, Bernard and Barbara Herber, for the day, enjoying their family who were all there, too. They got in lots of visiting, as well as dinner and supper. Thanksgiving Day, Don and Vi Moody went to Okaton to the home of Henry and Elaine Roghair. Vi said, “Was really a great day with lots of food, family, and fun. Donna and Will Deline (daughter and sonin-law) of Elaine and Henry showed numerous laptop slide shows of their missionary work in Papua, New Guinea. They are affiliated WyCliffe Bible Translations, an international linguistics education source. They have two little girls, Hannah and Ellie. This family knows Chip Walker's cousin, who is a pilot with Wycliffe on the island as well. Also enjoying the dinner and visiting were Paul and Mary Beth (son and daughter-inlaw), Roghair, Kadoka, Sarah and her husband, Jonathan, (daughter and son-in-law) Marshall, Minn., who smoked the delicious turkey. Also attending were a few close neighbors. Donna wanted information on the Dover and Lampert side of her family, so Don and Vi gathered pictures from those albums and they scanned them for extra copies of those grandparents and items of past interest.” Friday, Tony Harty went to his sister's, Monica and Pat Weaver's and also visited LaVonne and Mark Slovek and family members who were home. He enjoyed deep sea oysters on a half-shell that Lloyd and Mary Ellen Weaver brought up from Florida. On his way home he visited at the home of Janelle and Blake Hicks who had a couple of grandchildren visiting
them. Roxie Gittings arrived at the George Gittings home late Friday night to spend a few days. On our trip home Friday, Bill and I made a long delayed detour and found the home of Ed and Wanda (Meyers) Artz. They have stopped by here on numerous occasions and we seem to buzz by the Humbolt turnoff, but never turn in. This time we caught Wanda home. Ed was busy with a fencing project down by Plankinton, but we got a grand tour of their new home that they built. Wanda has freezers full of homemade treats when folks stop by, and a spot of tea was greatly appreciated, before we went along our way. Another surprise, in Kimball at the cafe were Dorothy and Digger Hansen, Philip, and their daughter, Michelle, and family, Chamberlain, and Steve Jeffords and friend, Jeannie, from the Kadoka area. Shelley Seager and Mike Rath went to Philip Friday and visited Ann and Gay Moses, then went on to Rapid City so Shelley could get in some grandson time with little Ryder Seager and Eli Seager. They were overnight guests at the home
of Eric Seager. Saturday, Tony Harty made a trip to Wanblee to retrieve his billfold which fell out of his pocket at Janelle's and delivered egg cartons. After having lunch out, he visited at our place in the afternoon, as well as with Kathy Brown. Saturday, the wind blew. Another thing to be thankful for was that there wasn't snow associated with it. I visited by phone with my cousin, Carrol Ripley, in Bakersfield, Calif. Her 92nd birthday is on Christmas. She said to say hello to her classmates, in particular Carrol Foland and Vivian Hansen. Shelley and Mike were overnight guests here in Kadoka Saturday night. Sunday morning, Bill, Shelley, Mike and I went to Wall to meet Eric and family for breakfast and to get a power cord that had been left in Rapid. Shelley and Mike returned to Sutton, Neb. George, Sandee, Roxie and Jessica Gittings and Daniel celebrated Thanksgiving on Sunday. Jessica Gittings and Daniel were at the Beth Davis home Sunday afternoon and evening. Sunday after church, Tony Harty stopped and visited with Verda An-
derson. The Anderson home was damaged by fire Saturday afternoon, luckily the house wasn't damaged too bad. The winds that day were gusting up to 40 miles per hour. Tony had dinner out. Don and Vi Moody left for Rapid City Sunday afternoon and enjoyed a bit of the afternoonand supper at Deadwood. They ran into lots of Philip and Rapid Valley folks who they knew who were entered in a slot tournament. Don and Vi returned to their Rapid Valley home and narrowly missed a very serious accident with a car coming straight at them in their driving lane near the mall with three highway pa-
trolmen in hot pursuit. One driver moved his car over, for Don to also get over, just in the nick of time. Don and Vi would like to thank that driver, if only they could find out who it was. (The news reported that it was a drunk driver who the patrolmen were chasing.) Ed and Wanda Artz, Humbolt, stopped for a visit Sunday afternoon and visited Bill and I and Bonnie Riggins, Wanblee, also stopped for a visit. Bonnie now lives in the Gateway Apartments. “When God dwells in our thankful hearts we cannot be anything but joyful.” Barbara Johnson I don't suffer from Insanity ... I enjoy every minute of it!
