Seth Marbry started his deputy
sheriff duties in the Haakon
County sheriff’s department De-
cember 3.
Marbry and Philip High School
science teacher Karmen Powell
married in October. Since the wed-
ding Marbry was keeping an eye
out for a job in Philip. He said he
had considered a possible job in law
enforcement and when the deputy
position opened up he decided the
timing was right.
Marbry, a native of Minnesota,
moved to Philip from McIntosh. He
said he has enjoyed what he has
seen of Haakon County. He noted
the area was quiet and the people
are friendly.
With the residents of the Philip
area being wrestling minded, Mar-
bry will fit right in. He was very ac-
tive in wrestling while growing up
and even participated in the Junior
Olympics. He also traveled the
rodeo circuit some in the rough-
stock events. Marbry is also an
avid hunter, rifle as well as bow.
Marbry will attend certification
classes in Pierre in the future.
Sheriff Fred Koester said Marbry is
on the list in case the earlier ses-
sions have an opening. Marbry will
have one year to become certified.
The classes are paid by the state of
South Dakota.
Marbry is new deputy sheriff
Canadian Pacific railway an-
nounced December 4 its intention
to explore strategic options for its
main line track from Tracy, Minn.,
west into South Dakota, Nebraska
and Wyoming and is inviting ex-
pressions of interest from prospec-
tive partners.
The line includes approximately
660 miles of track which encom-
passes CP’s current operations be-
tween Tracy, Minn., and Rapid
City, S.D., north of Rapid City to
Colony, Wyo., south of Rapid City
to Dakota Junction, Neb., and con-
necting branchlines. CP has oper-
ated the rail line in this area since
it assumed operational control of
the Dakota, Minnesota and East-
ern (DM&E) railroad in 2008. A
number of grain, ethanol, clay and
merchandise customers are rail-
served in the area.
“This portion of the CP network
would be an attractive and highly
viable opportunity for a low-cost
operator. There is a strong long-
term franchise here for an operator
willing to maintain high quality
service and explore growth oppor-
tunities with existing and future
customers,” said E. Hunter Harri-
son, President and Chief Executive
Officer. “CP has successfully built
many partnerships with shortline
and Class 1 railroads throughout
its system and we look forward to
assessing the ways interested par-
ties could work together with us to
deliver quality service to customers
on the west end of the DM&E
through an innovative partner-
CP will be contacting interested
parties seeking expressions of in-
terest in December, 2012. Parties
should contact Paul Clegg, Director
Business Development at
403.319.6310 for further informa-
“CP will continue to fully serve
customers along this rail line as we
work with interested parties and
evaluate proposals. We have un-
dertaken similar reviews on other
portions on our network in the past
that have resulted in positive out-
comes for shippers, employees, and
operators,’’ added Harrison.
DM&E railroad for sale

During the Haakon County
Board of Commissioners meeting
December 4, they approved the
purchase of two motor graders
from Butler Machinery, Rapid
Alex Kulesza, customer account
technician with Butler Machinery,
presented the board with quotes for
two graders. The units will have up
to 250 hours on them. Kulesza said
the city of Sioux Falls leases Cater-
pillar graders to use between Octo-
ber 1 and March 31. “Cat then
turns around and helps out with
pricing,” said Kulesza.
The machines would have six
and one-half years left on their
warranties. After that time Cater-
pillar guarantees a buy back of
$150,000 for each machine. The
warranties also include mileage on
repair trips. Kulesza said the only
items not covered by the warranty
are wear items such as blade
sharpening, broken windows, etc.
The two graders purchased in
2008 have had several issues with
the drive train and transmission.
The county has had to pay mileage
when a technician has had to come
to Haakon County. Chairman Ed
Briggs questioned Kulesza if those
issues had been fixed in the newer
models. “What they’re telling us
last spring this grader is actually
better on repairs then the Hs
were,” said Kulesza.
Kulesza noted the peak time to
sell a machine is when it is five
years old, it is when you get the
most money out of them.
Haakon County will replace
2002 and 2004 models. The two old
graders will be inspected and ap-
praised by Butler Machinery. The
county has five graders in their
highway department.
The county has one more pay-
ment on the two graders purchased
in 2008. The last payment will be
made about the time the new
graders are scheduled to arrive.
Funds to purchase the new
graders will come out of the capital
outlay account that is set up for
machinery purchases. No opt-out
funds will be used to purchase the
blades. The cost of the two blades
and two rippers is $539,789.10
Highway Department Superin-
tendent Kenny Neville informed
the board that the South Dakota
Department of Transportation is
offering the counties swap funds
once again for the Surface Trans-
portation Program.
The county would receive approxi-
mately $200,000 again this year.
Neville urged the board to accept
the swap funds. “You never know,
the next year we may not be given
the option and it would go straight
to STP funds,” he said. Neville said
this way the money can be used for
other things.
Neville said that two bridge proj-
ects have been pushed into 2014.
The two bridges are near each
other. Originally the two projects
were designated to two different
years. Neville noted that by having
them both bid for work in 2014 the
county should get a better quote on
Haakon County State’s Attorney
Gay Tollefson updated the board on
the issue with Sage Information
Services, Glen Ellen, Calif., request
for public information from the di-
rector of equalization office. She
said that assessor Toni Rhodes had
received another letter from the
business last week stating that if
the county did not comply within
10 days the county would be in de-
fault. Tollefson said Jerauld
County took this issue to the courts
and are possibly working on an ap-
peal. She said she would like to use
that to Haakon County’s advan-
tage, but until she speaks with the
state’s attorney there she won’t
reply back to the business.
It could possibly delay having to
give the information for up to a
year. But unless the federal law is
changed, the counties will eventu-
ally have to give the company the

The Philip City Council has al-
lowed another month’s time for
studies to be reviewed by con-
cerned citizens on the ongoing flood
plain issue.
During its Monday, December 3,
meeting, the council again listened
to concerns that are stalling the ap-
proval of a railroad siding project
proposed by Dakota Mill and Grain
at the August council meeting. As
spokesman for the neighborhood
group of flood plain landowners,
Jay Baxter said, “I would like some
solid evidence that I am not jeop-
ardizing the safety of my neighbors
and their homes.”
Baxter related that a neighbor-
hood meeting the evening before
was based on the question, “Is this
going to increase the risk of flood-
ing?” Baxter said, “I cannot say
how this new railing will affect
this, but an engineer could.”
During open discussion, Don
Burns said, “What is the elevator
doing that will affect the flooding?
What is that going to do to you or
your property? Absolutely noth-
Speaking for Dakota Mill and
Grain, Andrew Kangas said, “This
project will not change the existing
channel ... what we are going to do
is like putting a grain of sand in a
bathtub. It will be insignificant.”
He indicated that the reversing of
the drainage toward the river from
the tract where the siding will be,
and using some fill from near the
trestle will probably help the situ-
Mayor Mike Vetter, who has re-
peatedly tried to keep separate the
railroad trestle issue and the
DM&G building permit request, in-
terjected, “We are talking about the
trestle bridge again.” Conversation
then included the barium cooling
pond, which was constructed by the
United States Army Corps of Engi-
neers, and how rail-siding con-
struction might affect flooding of
the pond.
The neighborhood consortium re-
quested time to talk personally
with the city’s engineer and to
scrutinize all available studies,
which Baxter agreed were made
available through the city finance
office. Bringing in the Federal
Emergency Management Agency
or the Corps of Engineers might
not be necessary.
Bart Banks, for DM&G, said,
“We can’t do anything until this is
done ... We are trying to accommo-
date, but the more time we take the
more its going to cost us. There will
be a point where it will affect our
The council’s decision on the
DM&G building permit was tabled
until the next regular council meet-
ing. In the mean time, the city has
approved a resolution to become a
member of the Haakon County Re-
gional Railroad Authority.
In other city business, all current
liquor licenses have been approved
for renewal. The council also ex-
tended Demeon Brown’s airport
hangar lease an additional six
months to May 30, 2013, for which
Brown has already paid. Mike and
Debbie Miller have been granted a
variance request, and thus been
approved a building permit for the
installation of a propane tank.
Other approved building permits
included Elke Baxter putting up a
yard sign, for the Dennis Kennedy
estate putting in a propane tank,
Marion Nelson doing a sewer line
repair/replacement, Dean and
Mary Parsons putting in a ramp,
Larry Schulz moving in a 12’x16’
shed, and Jason Harry replacing a
sewer line.
The Haakon County Historical
Society, represented by Bobby
Sloat and Sandra O’Connor, will
donate its land to the city. The
land, north of the Senechel apart-
ments and near where the old mu-
seum building used to be, will be
leased back to the society. The city
will include the future park’s liabil-
ity insurance requirements with
the rest of the city parks. In ex-
change, the society will be respon-
sible for improvements and upkeep
of the park.
The current salaries and bills,
which totaled $144,018.69, in-
cludes $86,077.35 to Muth Electric
for the airport improvement proj-
ect. The federal and state govern-
ment will pay 98 percent of the
total for the airport projects – the
medium intensity runway lighting
and the land acquisition/environ-
mental assessment project. Final
inspection of the completed work
was done December 4.
The Haakon County auditor’s of-
fice has determined that the city of
Philip does not owe any expenses
for the city’s bond election held in
conjunction with the primary elec-
tion. No additional expenses were
incurred above what the county
would have had if the city election
had not been on the ballot.

The Philip Chamber of Com-
merce held its December meeting
on Monday, December 10.
The Prairie Area has nominated
Keith Emerson as its 2012 Endow-
ment Honoree. “He dedicated a lot
of his life to conservation,” said
Jennifer Jones, district manager
with the Haakon County Conserva-
tion District.
In accepting the plaque, Emer-
son summed up his conservatin be-
liefs with, “Under all is the land.”
Emerson is a lifelong resident of
Haakon County. He was born at
the Emerson Ranch located north-
west of Ottumwa in 1922. He mar-
ried Lucille in September of 1947.
They raised their four children, two
boys and two girls, on the home-
Keith served on the Haakon
County Conservation District
board from 1966 through 1989. In
1972, he was the first place winner
in the Greater South Dakota Asso-
ciation conservation contest. In
1981, he was chosen as the Society
for Range Management Area IV
Range Man of the Year. Emerson
was also very active in the commu-
nity of Philip, serving on the school
board for seven years in the 1970s.
He served on the legislatively ap-
pointed board in the late 60s to re-
organize school districts. He was
elected as board president of the
Land Title Association for a term.
Emerson strongly believes in the
objectives of the Great Plains Con-
servation Program, and made some
improvements to his ranch under
this program.
In 1979, he and Lucille pur-
chased the Abstract and Title busi-
ness in Philip. They leased their
ranch and moved to town. In 2005,
they sold their ranch just a few
years shy of reaching the centen-
nial homestead ranch status.
Emerson said that he always en-
joyed being on the conservation dis-
trict board, working with all the
other area ranchers. He remem-
bered that they enjoyed a great
comradery. He feels that conserva-
tion practices have changed over
the years and technology has
helped carve a new path for a lot of
producers. When he was operating
his ranch, his rangeland philoso-
phy was always to take half and
leave half. In his opinion, conserva-
tion was all about saving the soil
and saving the grass.
The Haakon County Conserva-
tion District is honored to present
Keith Emerson with the Prairie
Area Endowment Award for his 23
years of service on the district
board and lifetime of service to the
conservation effort.
In chamber business, discussion
was held on future appreciation ac-
tivities that might draw people to
Philip. The next meeting for the
Philip Chamber of Commerce will
be at 7:00 p.m., Monday, January
14, in the meeting room of the 73–
Emerson honored for conservation
Keith Emerson, left, was presented the honor of 2012 Endowment Honoree by
T.J. Gabriel, chairman of the board of the Haakon County Conservation District.

The concrete floor has been poured for the future D&T Auto Parts store west of
Morrison’s Pit Stop. The crew used a concrete pump, which uses a boom and
flexible tube to allow the mixture to be aimed from the cement truck directly to
where it has to be placed. It greatly improves upon using shovels and wheelbar-
rows for those hard to reach and larger jobs. Photo by Del Bartels

overview by council member Trisha
Larson on the National Park Serv-
ice helping find grants and creating
general blue prints for developing
a community trail plan. Though
the overview was informational
only, the council seemed interested
in such a community-wide project,
what ever it might eventually be.
Under the quarterly water re-
port, the softball association and
the rodeo grounds association,
which share a water line, will work
out each of their shares of an $800
summer water bill. Also, some
water meters in town were checked
so that they are within 98 percent
accuracy. The testing was com-
pleted by the City of Rapid City,
which waived the $80 per meter
testing cost.
Under the heading of public com-
ments, school board member
Vonda Hamill said that years ago
she sat in the audience on an issue
very important to her, as did many
people during this meeting on the
flooding issue. She ran for the
school board so she could be on the
other end. She believes everyone,
at some point, should sit on both
sides of the table.
City offices will be closed Decem-
ber 24-25 and January 1 in obser-
vance of the legal holidays.

trees, contact the city office.
The year-end special meeting of
the city council will be Friday, De-
cember 28, at 4:00 p.m. in the com-
munity room. The next regular
council meeting will be Monday,
January 7, at 7:00 p.m. in the
Haakon County Courthouse com-
munity room.

Lookin’ Around by Syd Iwan
Whatever would we find to do if
we didn’t have to constantly deal
with changes--or fix stuff and tidy
things up? We might be forced to
watch TV all the time or read tons
of books. If you’re a sportsman, you
might have to hunt or fish all the
time. What a bleak outlook. It
doesn’t bear thinking about.
This all occurred to me the other
day as I was driving around the
ranch. I first went to the river
place to consult with Ted about his
health insurance. The company
has discontinued his type of pol-
icy—probably because it was too
generous so they weren’t making
enough money on it. Anyway, if
you haven’t dealt with health in-
surance lately, you’re lucky. It’s a
pain as is all insurance. There are
countless companies and tons of
options to consider. First you have
to decide how much coverage you
want followed by consideration of
cost, deductible, co-insurance
(whatever that is,) and a few dozen
other things. It takes quite a bit of
reading and thinking to come up
with a policy that might acciden-
tally be the right one for you. The
total time spent is considerable.
Without dealing with changes in
insurance, Ted and I could have
watched more TV.
On the way back out of the river
ranch, there was Jim on the road
fixing a gate. That bit of wire
stretched between two posts had
been closed when I went through
the car gate next to it earlier, but I
guess Jim didn’t think it would
stay that way very long without
some upgrading. Anyway, he had a
spool of barbed wire and the other
tools and supplies needed to effect
repairs. He was making good
progress, as far as I could tell, until
one of his leather gloves got mis-
placed. Barbed wire and bare
hands don’t go together very well.
The glove was eventually run to
earth and work resumed. Without
gate disintegration, Jim might
have had time to take a nap or
even go fishing, and fishing was a
possibility. The river and stock
dams were not frozen over that day
which is a little odd for the first
week of December, but there you
are. Sometimes there’s ice a foot
thick already by Thanksgiving,
never mind Christmas.
When I got back to the home
ranch, semi-resident-carpenter
Chad had most of the north wall of
the car garage torn off. It was, ac-
cording to him, a load-bearing wall
that was no longer bearing much of
anything. The two-by-fours had
rotted off at the bottom, and there
was some danger of collapse. This
was by no means the oldest build-
ing on the place, but somehow it
was the one falling apart. I’m not
sure what caused the wood to go
bad, but it was probably a combi-
nation of poor siding and maybe
the vermiculate Dad had used to
fill the bottom half of the wall. The
insulating material might have col-
lected moisture let in by the bad
siding and promoted rot. Who
knows the whys and wherefores,
but there was a definite problem
that needed to be addressed. With-
out having to deal with collapsing
buildings, Chad could have gone
down to the river place and shot a
few more prairie dogs. That is
something he enjoys quite a bit. He
did eventually call it a day, grab
his gun and go, but it was fairly
late in the day by then. He claimed
he needed a change from carpenter
to varmint-control officer.
A bit later I was scratching
around in the basement looking for
some stuff when I noticed a pile of
cardboard boxes needing disposal.
The floor needed to be swept as
well. I didn’t have time right then
to do much cleaning, but the work
is still there needing to be done
and promising to take up some of
my leisure time in the near future.
If you look around anywhere you
happen to be, there usually is
something or other that needs
cleaning or straightening. The top
of my desk is a case in point.
On the other hand, maybe we
need change and all the other
things that take time. Any useful
and necessary work tends to make
us think we are accomplishing
something and are therefore useful
and indispensable people. It helps
the ego a bit. Well, in any case,
there is no shortage of work out
there that we can do to build our
sense of self-worth. Aren’t you just
tickled to death about that? I
surely am.

Commissioners – graders
Christmas spirit ... by Del Bartels
The store owner had a busy day, what with browsers and shoppers
in all day, especially just after school got out. Kids dreamed or asked
or begged or followed behind parents with quiet wonder of what Santa
might bring. He could see the cogs turning in the minds of parents,
checking mentally – without obviously looking at their checkbooks –
on how tight the Christmas budget was.
Busy was okay, but busier would be nice. So many people made trips
to the big city. He would be biting his tongue come the new year on
how his prices had compared, on how the service had excelled and how
he could have passed on what he saw customer’s family members look-
ing at – supposedly for their own wish list. He had off-handedly com-
mented to Mrs. So-and-so that her husband would probably like the
battery cables more than the plier set (especially since her husband
had gotten the plier set a month ago). The Johnson kid was dipping
into his lawn mowing money this season, but it seemed like it was
worth it. He couldn’t help but overhear three high school girls debating
on what one of their boyfriends would like, and finally – after all their
jokes about a kiss – he aimed them toward the music CD that the
young man had been looking at the other day.
He gave away a sale when he suggested a food gift basket for some
kid’s grandmother. He guessed that her budget was tighter than she
would ever admit, and that food was more needed than a scented can-
dle. He watched several potential sales walk out the door after people
had been idea shopping, hoping for cheaper prices in the city come the
weekend. Then, the long lines, crowds, hungry kids and other hectic-
ness would wear them down so they will probably purchase something
just to be done with that name on their list.
Gas wasn’t as expensive as a few months ago. Some city shopping
trips revolved around other reasons, such as doctor appointments or
visiting in-laws (and outlaws) who lived there. Agreed, sometimes a
road trip was just fun. Still, the shop owner missed certain faces, and
had to admit he certainly missed the business.
He came out of his thoughts, overhearing a whispering mother
telling her daughter that a certain tree ornament was just too expen-
sive this year. The little girl bravely took the decision stoically. He
quickly went back to the storeroom, grabbed the same ornament and
returned to the counter. The mother came to the check-out counter,
while the girl was still admiring the figurine. He nonchalantly men-
tioned that he didn’t really want the hassle of returning a slightly
scratched item and would gladly sell it for half price. He pointed out to
the mother the “scratch,” which didn’t exist. She smiled sheepishly at
the store owner. The little girl would be surprised this Christmas with
just what she wanted.
Hard times and sales that could be better ... it was still Christmas.

“They’re fun, that’s mainly the
thing,” said muzzleloader enthusi-
ast Matt Reedy. He also admitted
that the odds of drawing a muzzle-
loader hunting tag, particularly in
New Mexico, are “way better” than
the odds of drawing a regular
firearm hunting tag.
The state of South Dakota holds
a statewide deer hunting season
specifically for the use of primitive
muzzleloader firearms. The dates
for this year’s muzzleloader deer
season are December 1, 2012,
through January 15, 2013. A muz-
zleloader rifle, though, may be used
during the regular season. A
hunter who has drawn a regular
hunting tag may use a muzzle-
loader, and without the restrictions
imposed during the muzzleloader
According to Chuck Schlueter
with the South Dakota Game, Fish
and Parks Department, there has
been a muzzleloader season in
South Dakota since 1991. Permits
for the muzzleloader season are
valid throughout most of South
Dakota, unlike the regular fire-
arms season which limits license
areas such as to within Haakon
County. Muzzleloaders are legal as
an alternative for seasons where
firearms are permitted, including
deer, elk, turkey, small game and
game birds.
In South Dakota, a limited num-
ber of “any deer” licenses are avail-
able to residents only for muzzle-
loader season. Antlerless deer per-
mits are available to both residents
and nonresidents and sold through
the end of the season.
The South Dakota Game, Fish
and Parks Commission has decided
to allow the use of smokeless pow-
der, peep sights and other optics
not employing magnification dur-
ing hunting seasons restricted to
muzzleloading rifles. The changes
will allow muzzleloader enthusi-
asts to use optics such as red dot
and aim points to improve their
sight picture without magnifica-
tion. Also, it is now legal for a per-
son hunting small game with a
shotgun and shotshells to accom-
pany a licensed firearm big game
hunter in the field. However, small
game hunters who accompany big
game hunters may not use dogs.
Neal Petersen, owner of Pe-
tersen’s Variety in Philip, said that
probably the main reason for
GF&P allowing smokeless powder
is safety. Black powder explodes
when ignited, even if not inside a
compressed area such as a gun bar-
rel. Smokeless powder, if acciden-
tally ignited, will simply burn.
Storage of black powder is an ex-
tremely dangerous prospect.

Samantha Schwalm, a former
student at the Midland School has
grown to enjoy poetry; some of her
favorite writers are Edgar Allan
Poe, William Shakespeare and
Oscar Wilde. “Poems” says Saman-
tha, “make words and notions
sound eloquent.”
Last Memorial Day, Samantha
and her mother, Julie Schwalm,
visited the old Midland Cemetery
which sits atop a high hill just
north of Midland. Visiting that
cemetery touched Samantha in a
profound way. Samantha shared
with me her thoughts and feelings
of that visit.
“History of the place was rich
and tangible” says Samantha, “but
the passing of time and the disar-
ray of some of the headstones gave
the place an air of melancholy.
After visiting the cemetery I
thought about it quite a bit, but
only after I entered the contest, did
I think about putting the words to
a poem. When writing the poem I
thought about the men and women
buried there, but not only about
their deaths, their lives. The ceme-
tery seemed to be a forgotten place.
Somewhere that people don’t think
about; and maybe the headstones
will not last forever, but I felt they
should be in some way, immortal-
ized. I think we don’t appreciate
cemeteries as much as we should.
The past and the people who came
before us should not be allowed to
fade away.”
Samantha Schwalm entered the
International Open Amateur Po-
etry Contest this past summer
sponsored by the World Poetry
Movement and in July was notified
that her poem was one of the semi-
finalists. As a finalist, her poem
would be published in a book "Stars
in Our Hearts" in the fall. In Octo-
ber, she received notification that
she was a first place winner and as
such she received a $50 Gold Amer-
ican Eagle Tribute medal. Saman-
tha is shown holding the medal and
the book containing her poem.
I Know a Place
I know a place
Not so very far
Where the land touches the sun and
the moon and the stars
And all noise is but a whisper, re-
spectful of those who shall never rise
This is a place of names forgotten, far
longer than remembered
Where dreams once flown upon vel-
veteen wings
lie shattered and crushed on the
Where time has made a fool of all
and rules over the ground with an
iron fist
A tyrant to be feared
And in this place where the majesty
of stone legacy
has crumbled into dust
endless sorrow presides, presides for
Alas! What soft breaths have silenced
what tender hearts shall beat no
Oh! And I should scarcely know
what comfort is there for those be-
yond all recompense
and what comfort has been since
for pleading hearts left alone
abandoned for a place unknown.

hunting, the distance of a muzzle-
loader shot taken by the hunter is
up to the hunter. “This is defined
as much by ethics as skill,” said
Schlueter. Reedy said that his
newer in-line gun, which uses a
bullet-shaped sabot instead of the
old-fashioned ball, is consistently
accurate at 200 yards.
“We do not have survey informa-
tion on hunter preference for bullet
type, but there are many new prod-
ucts on the market including bullet
shaped projectiles. Legal require-
ments for big game hunting is .44
caliber or greater,” said Schlueter.
He added that some restrictions
have changed since 1991. “When
this season was established, muz-
zleloaders saw it as an opportunity
to pursue deer and their passion for
primitive firearms. The request
was to make requirements to keep
muzzleloader weapons in line with
traditional restrictions.
Reedy compared the cost of
shooting a muzzleloader versus the
cost of shooting a modern style
rifle. “The biggest expense you
have in a shell is the brass casing.
In-line doesn’t have that.” In-line
shooting still involves the powder
being put down the barrel of the
rifle, followed by pressing the sabot
in next. The traditional wadding
that holds the ball tight against the
powder has been replaced with a
plastic covering around the sabot.
Old or new, the powder is still ig-
nited by a flash or primer from out-
side of the barrel through a pinhole
behind the packed powder. Reedy
said that he can reload his muzzle-
loader “fairly quickly” by dropping
in two pyrodex pellets of powder,
ramming in the pre-wrapped sabot,
and replacing the spent primer.
Though this year’s blue-tongue
(epizootic hemorrhagic disease)
epidemic has greatly affected the
number of whitetail deer in South
Dakota. “It may affect success, but
it did not affect the number of li-
censes issued. Licenses will be sold
through the end of the 2012 season,
but so far we have sold just over
4,100 licenses,” said Schlueter.
There were 5,012 licenses issued
for the 2011 muzzleloader deer sea-
son. Hunters who responded to the
surveys by the GF&P reported an
average of almost five days of hunt-
ing. The overall success rate for the
2011 season was 26 percent. Sur-
vey responders reported 15 deer
harvested in Haakon County dur-
ing the muzzleloader season.
Schlueter said that the department
does not break down success for
seasons where muzzleloaders are
used as part of a regular firearms

Well, I am glad to see quilting
with Sandy on the new December
Somerset Court schedule. There
are a number of exciting new fea-
tures for December. December 6,
Christmas light looking. December
12, sugar free jazz concert at the
Dahl. December 12 we will be mak-
ing gingerbread houses, December
15 Story Book Island light viewing,
December 21 is flannel pajama day
and the wild kingdom preschool
November 30, I went to the fu-
neral of Eva Forner, Box Elder. I
had known her family, the Phil and
Clara (Evenson) Doughty family,
when she and her sisters were kids.
I will treasure the beautiful mem-
ory card with photos of Eva.
M.R. Hansen came for scrabble
and he brought the new December
2012 publication of the American
Society of Civil Engineers, called
“Civil Tongue.” On the front page is
an article about Willie the Whale of
Story Book Island fame. The South
Dakota School of Mines and Tech-
nology Student Chapter of Ameri-
can Society of Civil Engineers com-
pletely rebuilt Willy the Whale.
This well-loved Story Book Island
attraction had been in place for
over 50 years. A troop of 13 or so
SDSM&T students went to Hansen
Industries, Inc. welding shop in Ft.
Pierre to bend steel and weld the
new skeleton into shape. The
frame, as designed by BSCE junior
Abby Fleck, is six feet tall and 20
feet long. Willy’s skeleton was
brought to Story Book Island in
Rapid City over the summer of
2012, mesh and concrete layers
were added to form Willy’s skin.
The new surface must cure for a
few months before it is painted.
Among other stories in the “Civil
Tongue” are items about the con-
crete canoe and the steel bridge
Somerset Court movies for De-
cember include: “Polar Express,”
“Jack Frost,” “White Christmas,”
and a movie marathon.
December 1, before lunch, Addie,
Mary Lou, Susan and Vivian
played a little quiddler. Saturday
afternoon, we had the activity of
quilting with Sandy. Somerset
Court residents who would like to
help can meet in the activity gar-
den. What we do is make lap robes
in a pattern of the old fashioned
nine-patch, very colorful. They
have batting, so they are warm too.
These quilts are donated at Christ-
mas time to various charities. Usu-
ally, we have five or six to give
away. This year we hope to give
them to a veterans group. We enjoy
this activity. Annetta, Margaret
and Vivian sewed, Addie arranged
fabrics and ironed. Mary Lou and
Floy cut blocks. Sandy organized
the work, laid out materials and
gave us ice water and some deli-
cious cookie bars and miniature
chocolate bars. Thank you, Sandy.
Thelma Frame and friend, Fred,
Charlie and Marge Self came to
visit. Others set up games of whist
and rummi-cube. Marge played
rummi-cube for the first time.
Thank you to Somerset Court
resident LaVerne With, who sent
me her Lakota English dictionary
by Rev. Buechel. I was especially
interested in counting to 10 in
Lakota language. It goes like this:
wanji (sometimes spelled wanci)
nunpa, yamin, topa, zaptan, sakpe,
sakowin, saglogan, napciyunka,
and wicemna. If you would like to
know further Lakota number
words, this book is a good source.
Marilyn Butts gave us several
items to put in the Somerset Court
scrapbook on the coffee table by the
fireplace. Thanks, Marilyn.
Leslie dropped in this morning
with a little poem and further ex-
amples of finding square root.
December 4 was brown shoe day.
This is an opportunity to earn some
Somerset bucks and to give us time
to find our brown shoes or make
some brown yarn pom-poms to dec-
orate our shoes with.
My son, Leslie, dropped in at
lunch time Sunday, but he only
stayed a minute.
Sunday, December 2, 2012, at
Somerset Court, we had non-de-
nominational church services with
Terry Pulse and Steve. Terry told
us about Bible history leading up to
the birth of Jesus. It was prophe-
sied hundreds of years before it
came about. Thank you, Terry,
Steve and Jack.
A bunch of Somerset Court resi-
dents went on the Somerset bus on
a shopping trip Sunday.
Leslie Hansen dropped in after
church and visited till supper time.
We walked laps and talked to resi-
dents as we went past their apart-
ments. Later, Leslie played the
piano in the activity garden for a
few minutes.
To mention interesting apart-
ment doorway decorations, one I
noticed was Addie Rorvig’s nativity

ored olive wood from the Holy
A Philip memory from my home-

Jane Kampfe, 90, died Saturday,
December 8, 2012 at Golden Liv-
ing Center-Meadowbrook Nursing
Rilla Jane (Gardner) Kampfe
was born September 14, 1922, in
Westerville, Nebraska, to John B.
and Elsie M. (Copsey) Gardner.
She attended school in Westerville.
She met Alvin Kampfe in Mar-
tin, SD, while she was staying
with her sister. On October 22,
1940, Alvin and Jane were mar-
ried in Omaha, Nebraska. To this
union, two children were born:
Gregory and Garland.
The couple lived on a farm near
Long Valley, SD, from the mid
1940s to early 1980s. They then
made Rapid City their home. After
Alvin died in 1989, Jane moved to
Philip, SD. When her health de-
clined, she moved back to Rapid
City to be closer to her family.
Jane loved to garden and play
cards. She will be remembered for
being a loving mother, grand-
mother, and friend.
Jane was preceded in death by
her husband, Alvin; her parents,
six sisters and three brothers.
Survivors include two sons: Gre-
gory (Nancy) Kampfe, Rapid City;

A Pennington County resident in
the 90-99 age group is South
Dakota’s first flu death of the sea-
The individual had influenza B
and was hospitalized. To date,
South Dakota has reported 156 lab-
oratory confirmed cases of flu and
28 flu related hospitalizations.
“This unfortunate death is a re-
minder that flu can be a very seri-
ous illness, particularly for elderly
individuals,” said Dr. Lon
Kightlinger, state epidemiologist
for the South Dakota Department
of Health. “Annual vaccination is
the single best way to protect your-
self and your family from the flu.”
Annual flu vaccination is recom-
mended for everyone, but people
over 50 are one of the groups at
highest risk for complications who
should be sure to be vaccinated.
Also at higher risk are pregnant
women and people with chronic
medical conditions. Healthcare
workers and household contacts of
high risk populations, especially
those with young infants in the
household, should also be vacci-
nated. Children are another high
risk group, accounting for signifi-
cant cases and hospitalizations
each year and helping spread flu in
the community. The department of-
fers free flu vaccine for kids from
six months to 18 years.
In addition to vaccination, to pre-
vent the spread of the flu: wash
your hands often with soap and
water or use alcohol-based hand
gel, cover your mouth when you
cough or sneeze, do not touch your
eyes, nose or mouth, and stay home
if you're sick.

We all stumble Irom time to time. So why is it
when someone commits a sin we haven`t, we
somehow Ieel like we`re above it and begin to
cast stones? We`re not above it, Paul warns us,
and rather than condemn others Ior their
mistakes, we should learn Irom them so that
we don`t make the same mistakes.
Wherefore let him that thinketh
he standeth take heed lest he fall.

The South Dakota Department
of Agriculture and South Dakota
Farm Service Agency have distrib-
uted about 200 tons of donated
Conservation Reserve Program
(CRP) hay to state livestock pro-
ducers whose pastures were ad-
versely affected by this year’s wild-
“We thank all those who were in-
volved and hope to use this system
again in the future,” said Walt
Bones, state secretary of agricul-
The FFA, producers across the
state and SDDA staff helped dis-
tribute the donated hay to drought
impacted farmers and ranchers
who applied by the September
deadline or had contacted SDDA.
The hay was to be destroyed per
USDA-FSA CRP contracts, but was
donated to SDDA for distribution
to producers impacted by this
year’s drought. Producers who par-
ticipate in the CRP program are
usually asked to destroy hay that is
baled because they are compen-
sated monetarily for managing
those acres.
“With this summer’s extreme
drought conditions, hay is scarce,”
Bones said. “Donation of this CRP
hay will hopefully lighten the bur-
den on a few of the livestock pro-
ducers here in South Dakota.”

South Dakota is known for hav-
ing great saddle bronc riders, and
a young one is making a name for
himself in the rodeo arena.
Cole Elshere, Faith, won the fifth
round of the Wrangler National Fi-
nals Rodeo in the Thomas and
Mack Arena on Monday night, De-
cember 10, with an 83-point effort
aboard the Burch Rodeo horse
named Lunatic Fringe. Out of the
15-horse field, that was the one he
wanted and coincidentally, the one
that was randomly drawn for him
to ride.
“I wanted that horse because I
knew I could ride him and he fit my
style,” Elshere said. “My plan the
whole time was to just keep
spurring him and seeing what hap-
pened in the end.”
What happened earned the 24-
year-old $18,257, bringing his
earnings here so far to $28,848.
The former Gillette College rodeo
standout used his National Inter-
collegiate Rodeo Association expe-
rience to prepare him for the next
level of competition.
“I learned a lot through college
rodeo,” he said. “I competed against
some great guys on good horses
and it definitely helped me get to
this level.”

Midland News
Hello, winter! Oh, boy did it
turn cold. We woke up to seven de-
gree temperatures Sunday morn-
ing. And with the wind blowing the
way it was, it made for a very cold
wind chill factor. Road conditions
were not the best in some places.
And some places got a good amount
of snow. Late school starts and
some school cancellations were
going across the bottom of the TV
screen Sunday evening and this
Monday morning. When we woke
up to -10 degrees, but the wind
wasn’t blowing, so that helps. Old
man winter is letting us know it
hasn’t lost its touch. It is winter
and we do live in South Dakota. It’s
a good time to stay indoors, with a
good book, don’t you think?
I’ve been to the book store in
Pierre enough times that they
know the kinds of books I tend to
like. They recommended a book,
“Prayers for Sale” by Sandra Dal-
las. What a good book! And, no,
they did not sell prayers, but
prayers were offered for folks who
needed prayer. It was a book with
a human interest story, need I say
more? I enjoyed it so much, I
checked out two more of her books
at the Philip library. And though
the Midland library didn’t have
those particular books, it does have
other books by authors I like. I do
enjoy reading, and thanks to the
ladies at the Pierre book store, my
horizons have been broadened to
books by authors, I had not heard
of before. Books do take you on a
journey. A journey with all kinds of
different emotions, tears and
laughter, sadness and joy, all
mixed into heart-warming stories.
I’ll take book reading over sitting in
front of the television any day.
Jenna Finn, Cass and Cole were
at the Creighton Hall north of Wall
recently. Jenna’s sister, Megan
Hoffman and her family live in the
Creighton area and for the last four
or five years Megan has had a com-
munity cookie exchange event in
that hall. She has it before Christ-
mas and folks come with all differ-
ent kinds of cookies for exchange.
It is a time of visiting, enjoying
tasty cookies, and taking a variety
home for later. What a nice way of
getting together, sharing favorite
cookies, and a fun time of visiting.
Knowing of Karel (Eisenbraun)
Reiman having grown up in the
Creighton area, Jenna said there
were Eisenbrauns there. Jenna
and her boys visit the Midland li-
brary each week checking out
books and DVDs. Karel and Jenna
share stories of the Creighton area
now that Jenna’s sister is a part of
that community. I always find it in-
teresting how the ties and connec-
tions lead to a story.
Reminder: Jenna mentioned the
Campbell soup labels once again,
reminding folks to save those labels
bring them to the Midland School
or give her a call. They are used to
purchase educational items for stu-
dents. It takes a lot of labels to get
enough to purchase those items.
Joy Jones went with her daugh-
ter, Debbie Trapp and her son,
Wyatt, to Rapid City Friday. Wyatt
had an appointment with his ortho-
dontist. A highlight of the trip was
stopping in to see Cassidy Trapp at
the School of Mines where she is in
her first year of college. They got to
see her dorm room which was dec-
orated for Christmas and to meet
her roommates. Those chance vis-
its mean a lot to those college stu-
dents and to mom and grandma,
Monday and Tuesday, Clint and
Prerry Saucerman were in Rapid
City. Have you noticed how
Thanksgiving is over and Christ-
mas is here? It does seem to go that
quickly. They visited their son, Tel
and Ellie Saucerman and family
while in Rapid. Wednesday, Prerry
drove Wilma Saucerman to Pierre.
They had lunch with Wilma’s
daughter, Sheri Wiechman, and
stopped in the see Wilma’s grand-
daughter, Cori Carroll, at work, be-
fore coming home.
Judy Daly and Barb Jones
headed for Rapid City Saturday,
meeting up with Marcia Jackson,
Hot Springs and Pat Snook, who
has a house she stays at in Rapid
City. When not staying in Rapid,
Pat is at her home on the farm
north of Midland. Also a part of the
group is Jen Jones’ mom, Diane Ja-
cobsen and Marcia’s friend, Karen,
of Custer. The ladies enjoyed see-
ing the play, “Beauty and the
Beast,” at the Civic Center The-
atre, reporting it was very good.
After the play everyone had supper
together before heading for home.
I visited by phone with Ronda
Schofield, who was in Sioux Falls
with her mom Lois Hall. Lois is a
patient at Avera McKennan Hospi-
tal where she has been for two
weeks this coming Wednesday.
Ronda reports her mom is improv-
ing and getting better. Ronda, her
sister, Charlotte, and her brother,
Rick, have been spending time with
their mother, Lois. Anyone wishing
to send Lois a card the address is:
Lois Hall, Avera McKennan Hospi-
tal; P.O. Box 5045; Sioux Falls, SD
57117-5045. Lois is one of those
people with such interesting stories
to tell. Karel Reiman and I always
enjoy those times Lois visits the
Midland Library getting books to
take home. Wishing you God’s
healing Lois!
Congratulations to Kevin and
Emily Petoske, Sioux Falls, on the
birth of their son, Samuel John
Petoske, born November 28, 2012,
weighing 8 lbs. 13 oz. Samuel joins
a sister, Reese, who is 3-1/2 years
old. Grandparents from this area
are Jim and Barb Petoske, Mid-
land, and great-grandparents, Ar-
line Petoske, Silverleaf in Philip,
and Bob and Ardis McCormick,
Sophie Foley had a week of ra-
diation treatments in Rapid City
last week. She reports it went well
and she is feeling good. She had
two treatments a day and this was
to take care of the cancer. We wish
you continued good health, Sophie.
I had a good visit by phone on
Sunday evening with Doris Shee-
ley, Colorado City, Colo. They had
gotten a lot of snow, six to eight
inches and it was still coming
down. Doris said it was a dry snow.
Hard to believe they moved from
Midland to Colorado City 11 years
ago. Doris said to tell everyone in
Midland, “hello.” Bob and Doris’
Christmas greetings had such a
good picture of them and their fam-
ily. Bob and Doris celebrated their
Golden Wedding anniversary this
year and their kids and families
provided for and accompanied
them on an Alaskan Cruise for
seven days. The family picture was
taken on that cruise. Tim lives in
California; Darla lives in Texas;
Laura, her husband Randy and
their two daughters and Keith,
Patty and Anna Sheeley all live in
Colorado Springs, Colo. Bob’s sis-
ter, Bev Johnson and her late hus-
band, Luther, lived in Denver,
Colo., for many years. This year
Bev made the decision to sell the
five bed-room home she and Luther
had lived in for many years and
purchased a two-bedroom condo in
the southeast corner of the Denver
Metro area-Highlands Ranch. Bob
and Doris were invited to Bev’s
home this past weekend for home-
made lefse, but with all that snow
they’d gotten, called to say they
couldn’t make it. Lefse making has
been an annual tradition for Bev
and her family before the Christ-
mas holidays. I gave Bev a call and
asked if I could come for some
lefse? Laughing, Bev told me sure,
and asked how I knew about it. I
told her I have my ways, and then
told her I had been talking with
Doris. Bev’s immediate family
helps in the making of lefse. Bev
said folks she’d invited brought
homemade soup and so they had
soup and lefse for supper. Sounded
good to me on a cold winters night;
and what a neat tradition!
Karel Reiman’s family is Ger-
man and a tradition in their home
was a German delicacy called
kuchen on Christmas Eve. Karel
has continued this tradition. Her
kids all like it and she shares some
with her neighbors. I enjoy hearing
of those traditions. I remember
Christmas Eve at my aunt and
uncle, Roy and Clara Roseth’s,
there was the Norwegian food of
lutefisk and lefse each Christmas
Eve. Good memories!
Had a nice family picture of for-
mer Midland residents, Ivan and
Miriam Schilling and their grown
kids Camilla, Craig and Carmelita
all of Gillette, Wyo. They report
they are doing well and send greet-
The following is a report from
Maxine Jones:
Friends Wayne and Lucille Car-
lin stopped for coffee with Shorty
and Maxine Jones one morning
while on their way from home in
Ohio to spend time with one of
their sons and family in Montana.
The men served on a board at Na-
tional Cattlemen’s Beef Association
a few years ago. Lots of catching up
to do since visiting while in
Nashville last winter. Lucille has
accomplished a long time dream of
participating in a National Rifle
Association shooting event for
women at their center in Colorado
where the ladies work with many
types of guns, from assembly/clean-
ing to target shooting contests.
Sounds like she would like to do it
again sometime!
Visitors and family have en-
joyed seeing the many deer taking
advantage of the slightly greener
grass in Shorty and Maxine's yard
recently. Often there are up to 20
head at a time. Fawns are very
cute and fuzzy now. One day there
were five bucks in the herd, includ-
ing a very young one which must
have been injured, causing one
antler to have a broken tip with the
rest of it quite bent compared with
the 'normal' antlers. Seeing them
as individuals, even to one doe rec-
ognizable due to a split ear, and a
fawn obviously younger than all
the others is interesting. They even
sleep in the yard sometimes. They
won't be so much fun when they
come if they are here in the spring
when we hope plants will be grow-
Shorty and Maxine attended an
ag banquet in Rapid City last
week, spending the night with Ross
and Melanie Jones and girls before
returning home in time to get
ready to attend the bank party in
Philip Friday night.
Frank Calhoon and two friends
drove to Midland from homes in
Missouri and Ilinois for a little
pheasant hunting at Calhoons'.
They visited Shorty and Maxine
Sunday morning, planning to re-
turn home Monday morning. They
were a little surprised at how cold
it was, after noting our nice
weather all fall on TV. Frank is a
college professor and a chiroprac-
tor, one friend is a farmer, and one
works for ADM. They enjoyed
watching Barry, Bryer and
Matthew feeding cattle and other
chores. The guests decided, after
asking Shorty a few questions
about the work they were watch-
ing, which he could not answer,
that he "appears to be in senior
management". Other visitors have
been surprised that work goes on
with no one appearing to "give or-
ders", especially when branding,
with everyone going about their
jobs quickly and even having fun
without slowing the work down.
Fortunately, that group of hunters
was more interested in seeing the
area and family than in the hunt-
ing, and they were amazed at the
turkeys and deer in Midland, as
well as pleased with the hot min-
eral baths.
I’m not finding many people at
home. Though the temperature
was -10 this Monday morning, it
got up to 32 degrees by noon, so
guess folks are taking advantage of
the nicer weather. And yes, we do
need moisture. But, when it snows
my preference is to be at home,
watching that snow from my win-
dow. It is basketball season, called
our daughter, Charlene, at Bis-
marck, N.D., checking on the
weather. She said they didn’t get
the snow that was predicted. She
had been working at the basketball
games in Bismarck. She runs the
clock and has been doing this since
her first year of teaching at Ender-
lin, N.D., which was 27 years ago.
Time does move on, it waits for no
This Tuesday morning I re-
ceived a phone call that Andy Ole-
sen was killed in a helicopter acci-
dent late Monday evening. Folks in
the Midland area were saddened to
learn of Andy’s death. His folks,
Anker and Sena (Kuhlman) Ole-
sen, had a farm north of Midland
where Andy and his three siblings
spent their growing up years, all
graduating from Midland High
School. Andy graduated with the
class of 1965. Sena taught school
for many years. Andy and his wife,
Pat, lived in the Chicago area and
their son and daughter are grown
adults. Life’s journey can change in
a matter of minutes and our lives
are never quite the same. We wish
to express our sincere sympathies
to the family.

Mike Rausch called to tell me
that he and Gretchen are the proud
grandparents of a new baby boy
named Lincoln John, born Decem-
ber 6th, weighing in at 8 lbs., 7 oz.
and 20-1/2 inches long. He joins
two brothers, Kaylan and Tyson.
His parents are Annie Jo and
Mike went to the Shearer’s bull
sale where a large crowd attended
and the bulls sold good. Mike en-
joyed visiting with old neighbors
and friends during the day.
I went to Rapid with Kay Ainslie
on Wednesday to get a few things
that are not available in Philip and
as I am not a shopper, it’s not one
of my favorite things to do, I was
able to get everything on my list.
Kay did some of the shopping for
me as we could come home sooner
that way. Loras Riggins went with
us and was nice to see and visit
with her also, as I have not seen
her since she moved to Kadoka
from Wall, where she lived near
Shawn and Lynn McKay. (Lynn is
her daughter.) I used to see her
quite often when Marvin and
Shaun played in the band together.
Christa Fitch stopped in Sunday
for a brief visit. She was looking for
a dress she needs for the Milesville
play. Sounds like it will be a fun
play to go to. The girls have some
things stored in my upstairs, so
they come often to find things they
need and can usually find it. Her
family stayed at Marvin’s because
it was so cold and she didn’t bring
them here with her; besides, Mar-
vin and Colby were practicing their
music for the Christmas program.
This is the month for our last
event of the year for our club and
we will end the year with our an-
nual Christmas club dinner at the
senior center when we invite hus-
bands or a friend for dinner. We ex-
change white elephant gifts, which
we draw by a number and it does
get very interesting. Many good
laughs are gained from it. The men
usually play cards and the ladies
make out their program for the
coming year. A club member usu-
ally has some games to play and we
end up having a great time just en-
joying the day.
Everyone has been moving hay
home to the shelters and are so
thankful to have hay to move from
some new and some leftover hay.
Marvin has been feeding cake and
a few hay bales to supplement the
cane fields that came up spotted
this year, but does make some
grazing. They eat the cake and hay
and then go out and pick and clean
the cane fields.
Has it ever been cold! Some
below zero temperatures and we
received about three inches of wet
snow that melted and stayed on the
ground, then the cold front came
through and gave us another three
inches. A strong wind blew it
around into drifts and the guys had
to chop ice in the tanks for a few
days. We are warm for a few days,
then cold for a few. The weather
forecast has varied a lot the last
few weeks. But we are glad for any
moisture we can get and will need
a lot more before spring or we all
will be in trouble.
Kieth and Deb Smith, Colby,
Jess and Logan, Don and Donna
Olivier all attended Lincoln
Smith’s graduation from Northern
State University in Aberdeen. Lin-
coln received many awards and the
group enjoyed many meals in his
honor. Lincoln was one of three
who graduated in Honorous, the
highest the institution offers, as
well as the summa cum laude, the
highest grade point average. Fri-
day night they went to a business
reception, Saturday morning to an
honors breakfast, then after grad-
uation they attended a reception
for Lincoln, Jordan Smith and an-
other friend. Cassidy was also able
to make it from Sioux Falls, but
was snowed in for an extra day due

to the Interstate being closed. She
returned home on Monday.
The Fitch boys went snowmobil-
ing this week as they received more
snow in the Milesville area than we
did. They had a blast, so was told,
and you can’t keep them contained
in the house when it’s nice – they
ride their bikes, go hunting when
they can, and they enjoy all sports.
But they have to do their chores be-
fore they can go have fun. The older
ones are all so good helping their
mom with the younger ones. It al-
ways amazes me when we’re up
there for a meal and Christa says
the meal is ready – everyone has
their job in getting the table ready
and in short time everything is on
the table.
Sorry the news is short, but due
to weather and several entertaining
the flu, just not much to write
Yes, and to finish the story of
Elain David, she is related by way
of the Beckwith families on her
mother’s side, to Markweds and the
Stoner families who live in this
area. She lives in Pierre now. And
yes, Donna King, it was Elain you
talked to that day in Pierre.
If I had my child to raise all over
again, I’d build self esteem first,
and the house later. I’d finger paint
more, and point the finger less. I
would do less correcting and more
connecting. I’d take my eyes off my
watch and watch with my eyes. I’d
take more hikes and fly more kites.
I’d stop playing serious and seri-
ously play. I would run through
more fields and gaze at more stars.
I’d do more hugging and less tug-
ging. –Diane Loomans

Council discussed the hangar lease
agreement with Demeon Brown. It was
reported that he was initially requested to
vacate the hangar space by Nov. 30,

has not been any other interest in renting
the hangar space, Council recommended
accepting the payment and extending the

Street Improvement Projects:
Council reviewed a proposal for a replat
of N. Wood Ave., bisecting Tracts I and J,
located in 13-1-20, Philip Acreage,
Haakon County, City of Philip, SD. The
proposed replat has been preliminarily
presented and prepared by SPN & Assoc.
following a survey of the actual street lo-
cation compared to the originally deeded
description of land that was dedicated as
a public right-of-way by Bol-Mor Lanes. It
was noted that the street was never for-
mally platted, hence its location is based
solely on the legal description contained
with the deed dedicating it as a public
right of way. Unfortunately, this deed in-
versely describes the property in ques-
tion. In order to correct the inconsistency
of the actual street location with that of
where it is legally described, it was rec-
ommended, following a formal survey to
replat the street.
Mayor Vetter reported that this also af-
fects the current property owners of Tract
I and J, Scotchman Industries; and, they
have graciously given the City their ap-
proval for the replat.
Following review, motion was made by
Arthur, seconded by Matt to approve the
replat of N. Wood Ave. bisecting Tracts I
and J, located in 13-1-20, Philip Acreage,
Haakon County, City of Philip, SD. Motion
carried with all members voting aye.

pearing for or against the requested li-
cense renewals, motion was made by
Matt, seconded by Arthur to approve the
above Liquor License renewals for 2013
contingent upon all appropriate fees and
applications being submitted. Motion car-
ried with all members voting aye.
FO Van Lint reviewed correspondence
from Pat Freeman, Haakon County Audi-
tor, regarding the expenses associated
with the City’s bond election held in con-
junction with the primary election in June.
The City had agreed to reimburse the
County for the City’s portion of the elec-
tion expenses, but according to Freeman,
the County will cover all of the expenses
as no additional expenses were incurred
in the process of including the City’s bond
question on ballot in conjunction with the
primary election. For example, ballots
and election worker expenses would
have been the same with or without the
City combining their election with the
Mayor, Council and those in attendance
expressed their appreciation to the
County for all their assistance and gen-
erosity with the City’s bond election.
At 7:20 p.m., as previously advertised, a
Public Hearing was held on the applica-
tion of Mike and Debbie Miller for a vari-
ance to the 1997 Uniform Fire Code as
adopted, and more specifically Article 82

noted that the propane tank’s “point of
transfer” will be located ten feet (10’)
north of the house; four and one-half feet
(4½’) from the inner edge of the sidewalk;
and, fourteen feet (14’) from the street

Gartner to approve the draft permit re-
newal for the Restricted Use Site opera-
tions for fiscal years 2013-2018 as pre-
sented by the SD Dept. of Environment
and Natural Resources (DENR). It was
reported that the only change to the pre-
vious permit was an addition, granting a
variance to recognize the location of an
occupied dwelling within one-thousand
feet of the site. Motion carried.
The monthly Street Dept. report was re-
Street Committee Chairman Gartner up-
dated the Council on the purchase of a
surplus tandem axle truck and plow from
the State that was approved during the
Nov. 3rd meeting. He noted that accord-
ing to PWD Reckling, the truck will be of-
fered to other State entities prior to it
being offered to the City. This could take
an additional six months before the truck
is offered for sale to the City.
FO Van Lint noted the City appropriated
for the truck purchase in 2012. Since the
purchase will not take place this year nor
was it included in the 2013 budget, a sup-
plement from the Street Dept. reserve ac-
count will be required in order to cover the
expense in 2013.
The quarterly Water Dept. report was pre-
sented and reviewed with GM Pearson,
noting that the November water loss was
Mayor Vetter reported that he was re-
cently contacted by Roger O’Connell re-
garding the Softball Association’s water
bill. O’Connell voiced concern for their
water usage above their allotted 400,000
gals. of free water, noting that they were
not aware that they had exceeded their
It was noted that in the past, the free
water users were contacted by the City
prior to reaching their allotted amount.
This allowed them to maintain more con-
trol over their usage and finances.
GM Pearson stated that this policy was
not shared with him nor is he always
aware of who to contact with the various
parks that receive free water. He will
make note to ensure that they are con-
tacted in the future prior to reaching their
allotment of free water. He also noted that
the Rodeo Arena Association’s water is
also provided through the Softball Asso-
ciation’s meter and would recommend
that they work out an agreement with
them for the overage charges.
Pearson also advised the Council that
five of the oldest water meters, some
being over ten years old, were tested with
a result of 98 to 99% accuracy. With
these results, he does not foresee the
need to replace any of the water meters
in the near future. He also expressed ap-
preciation to the City of Rapid City for
testing the meters at no charge.
An update on the Utility Billing software
was reviewed. It was noted that software
company, USTI, is still working on the
conversion and have recently come
across a glitch with the sales tax and re-
connect/disconnect fee applications.
They have reviewed different options to
correct this and will be providing a quote
to make the needed repairs in order for
the conversion to be successful.
Council Member Matt questioned if the
contract amount for the conversion of the
RVS database to USTI would include the
correction to the sales tax and recon-
nect/disconnect fee applications? FO Van
Lint confirmed that she is still awaiting a
quote from USTI and would look into this
No action was taken.
At 7:30 p.m., Bobby Sloat and Sandra
O’Connor with the Haakon Co. Historical
Society addressed the Council.
Mrs. Sloat informed the Council that the
Historical Society owns a piece of prop-
erty north of the Senechal Apartments
building that they would like to develop
into a park with the assistance of the Gar-

den Club. It has sufficient trees that would
offer a great setting for a park area for the
Senechal residents and others in the
downtown area. They have sufficient
funds to establish the park area, but are
concerned about the liability if someone
were to get injured while on the property.
She noted that they would appreciate the
City’s assistance, by providing the liability
insurance for their park.
It was noted that according to the City’s
insurance agent, the City would have to
own the park in order for the property to
be covered under the City’s general liabil-
ity insurance. The example of the Haakon
Co. Young Women (HCYW) Kiddie Park
was given as it is owned by the City, but
the maintenance of the park is leased
back to HCYW. The City in turn, provides
the liability insurance and garbage serv-
Mrs. Sloat and Mrs. O’Connor were ques-
tioned if they were willing to donate the
property to the City in order for it to be
covered under the City’s insurance? Mrs.
O’Connor confirmed that they would do-
nate the property contingent upon the
City leasing back the maintenance to
Following discussion, motion was made
by Gartner, seconded by Henrie to ap-
prove the Haakon Co. Historical Society’s
request to accept their property as a do-
nation to the City and in turn the City
would provide the liability insurance cov-
erage to the park. The City will then de-
velop a formal agreement with their or-
ganization to lease the maintenance of
the park back to them. Motion carried.
It was then questioned who would be re-
sponsible for the costs associated with
preparing the deed to transfer the prop-
erty. City Attorney Tollefson offered her
services to compile to the legal docu-
ments free of charge.
Mayor, Council and those in attendance
thanked Ms. Tollefson.
Dakota Mill & Grain (DMG) Expansion
Mayor Vetter reported that per the City
and community’s request, DMG has con-
tacted both the Army Corps of Engineers
and Canadian Pacific (CP) regarding the
question posed to them regarding dis-
placement of the fill dirt around the trestle
bridge in order to assist in widening the
holding basin in an effort to assist with re-
ducing the flooding risks. This displaced
dirt would be utilized in constructing their
rail siding. It was noted that approval has
been given to DMG as a “within reason”
stipulation and Vetter asked if DMG would
explain that statement.
In addition, DMG’s tabled building and
flood plain development permits and
plans for phase II, rail siding construction,
were reviewed in conjunction with the dis-
Bart Banks, DMG Attorney, reported that
their engineer, Andrew Kangas with Civil
Design Engineering, has been in contact
with both CP and the Army Corp. The CP
has given the “within reason” stipulation
to ensure that the integrity of the trestle
bridge is not affected during the displace-
ment of the dirt. They have also gra-
ciously offered to provide on-site person-
nel to supervise during the work.
Council Member Arthur questioned about
DMG working in the area beyond that of
CP’s, displacing some of the dirt on pri-
vate property to assist with the drainage.
Mr. Banks advised that while the property
line is usually in the middle of the river
channel, the Army Corp still has authority
over that area. In turn, changing the river
channel is under the Army Corps of Engi-
neers control, not the property owners.
Jay Baxter, property owner, addressed
the room as the spokesperson for the
neighborhood group from Philip Ave. and
Bridge St. in attendance. He noted that a
neighborhood meeting was held at his
home last evening and they have devel-
oped a list of questions that would like to
be considered as well other information.
He presented the questions, photos, and
flood management information to the
Council. (A copy of this information is on
file in the Finance Office.)
He stressed that the group would like to
see this project completed, but desires
more concrete information before the per-
mits and plans are approved. Their main
question is that of what and if the rail sid-
ing will “increase the risk of flooding?”
The idea of an additional culvert was dis-
cussed in the past, but they are unsure if
that is the solution. In turn, they would like
the City to consider allowing them to con-
tact a neutral third party engineer to re-
view the data and provide a written report.
It was noted that the City hired their engi-
neer, Harlan Quenzer with SPN & Assoc.,
to review the project and provide an opin-
ion as to the effect the rail siding would
have on the flood plain. A written report
was not requested by the City, but in Mr.
Quenzer’s verbal report, he confirmed
that it would not have an adverse effect
on the flood plain.
Mr. Baxter then reviewed the Army Corps
of Engineer’s Flood Plain Management
Service Program. He noted that this pro-
gram provides education about flood haz-
ards and identifies areas to reduce flood-
ing. This service is offered free of charge
and they have made an initial contact with
them to determine if they would be avail-
able to determine the effects that the rail
siding project may have on the flooding.
They are still waiting to hear back from
this office.
Mayor Vetter went on to mention the
questions that Mr. Baxter provided to the
Council, pointing out their statements re-
garding how “the development will alter
the drainage by reducing land depth, not
correcting the problems that were created
by removing a portion of the trestle
bridge, and the impact it could have on
the school’s treatment ponds.”
Baxter confirmed that the questions were
compiled from their neighborhood meet-
ing as a means to address all of their con-
cerns. Again, they are still hesitant on
trusting that the project will not have un-
favorable flooding effects on the commu-
nity and the School’s barium treatment
Vetter went on review DMG’s plans to
maintain the drainage, explaining that the
new rail siding will be one foot lower in el-
evation than that of the main rail line. In
addition, they will be maintaining the
drainage between the rail lines. He
stressed that he is not an engineer and
therefore, is not familiar with all the dy-
namics of the project.
Neal Eisenbraun expressed his strong
opinion that the Mayor and Council
should be even more thoroughly edu-
cated on the issues surrounding this mat-
ter and regarding the project than even
the engineers, and they should not be re-
lying solely on the engineers when acting
on DMG’s permits.
It was noted that professional engineers’
are consulted in order to provide the City
with the necessary information and ad-
vise the Council in order that the Council
can then make the best educated deci-
sion it can with best available profes-
sional advice and information. Engineers
have the specialized training, not the
Mayor and Council. That is why the City
contracts with them for their services.
Council Member Gartner mentioned that
since the group does not appear to be
comfortable with the City’s and DMG’s
engineers’ opinions, does the Army
Corp’s completed hydraulic study that the
Federal Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA) approved provide leverage?
Mr. Eisenbraun stated that he is not
aware of nor has he seen the hydraulic
study and questioned if it addressed the
treatment ponds. He also mentioned that
he would still prefer that FEMA be con-
tacted since they specialize in flooding.
Council Member Matt stated that in his
experience with FEMA, it is not an easy
task to obtain information from them. In
addition, he would predict that consulting
with an additional third party engineer –
they, too, would utilize the information al-
ready gathered from the engineers who
are already involved with the project.
It was noted that the treatment ponds are
not addressed in the study as it concen-
trates on the drainage through the trestle
bridge. It confirms that the trestle bridge
is of sufficient size to meet the 100-year
flood elevation requirements, providing a
drainage area of 1,800 square feet.
It was noted that since FEMA has not pro-
vided elevations for the City’s flood plain
map, the City is obligated to use the best
available data when determining the ele-
vations and according to the best avail-
able data, the rail siding meets the 100-
year flood elevations.
Mr. Kangas then went on to stress that
DMG’s project will not change the river
channel or increase the flooding risk.
They will be displacing approximately
2,000 yards of material around the trestle
bridge and utilizing it in constructing the
rail siding. He noted that the City streets
will not be affected and drainage will be
maintained as is.
Council Member Arthur questioned if they
are able to predict how fast the water will
flow between the ponds and rail siding
during a flood event? Mr. Kangas con-
firmed that he does not have the data to
calculate the flow, but is confident that the
drainage will not be restricted. They will
be installing erosion control on the siding,
grading the area around the siding, and
cleaning out the drainage ditch. He also
noted that water will not pool in the area
around the siding nor between the rail sid-
ing and main line.
Vetter reminded everyone that without the
project, there will not be any improve-
ments to drainage in the area. He then
noted that DMG has provided the re-
quested information requested by the City
and community over the past few months
and in addition, the City’s engineer and
CP’s engineer have provided supporting
documentation regarding the plans not
being a detriment to the area. He then
questioned the audience as what else
needs to be done in order to avoid stalling
on the project any further, suggesting an-
other thirty days.
Mr. Banks confirmed that DMG would like
the City to act on their rail siding permits,
but is not opposed to waiting an additional
thirty days. His only worry is if all of the
community's concerns will be addressed
during this time in order to avoid any fur-
ther delay as the longer it is put off, the
more it costs DMG. With that, he recom-
mended that the stability of the ponds
also be addressed during this time frame
so that the project can move forward.
Vonda Hamill questioned if the Army Corp
has been contacted regarding the ponds
as they were the entity who originally con-
structed them. In addition, they have con-
tinually monitored them over the years
and have been in contact with the school
as they are in need of repairs. She rec-
ommended that they be contacted as
they are familiar with their condition.
Vetter then questioned Mr. Baxter, if a
written document regarding the impact
that the project would have on the flood-
ing would be sufficient to meet this
group's needs, i.e. a written report from
the City’s engineers. Mr. Baxter stated
that he is insistent upon receiving an un-
biased report, from a third party engineer
that is not familiar with our community or
the project.
Don Burns then addressed the audience,
noting that the basic comment he has
been hearing is regarding how the project
will affect the water flow and flooding. He
advised that his brother in Fargo, North
Dakota, deals with flooding on an annual
basis and even though it is a common oc-
currence, the City has not built a berm.
He stressed that this area of community
is no different as it is located in a flood
zone area. He then questioned how much
damage did the properties in this area
incur during the 2008 flood.
Mike Seager advised that it was time and
labor intensive, while Rod Knutson stated
that a house on Bridge St. was destroyed.
Mr. Burns then mentioned if the citizens
are concerned about the liability of the
ponds flooding being the school district's
or the City’s. In his opinion, it would have
more impact downstream than locally. He
also stressed that the City already hired
an engineer to review the project and if
another one is hired, it is only going to
cost more money to review the area and
more than likely only utilize the other en-
gineers’ information.
Vetter inquired about the amount of addi-
tional time the community desires to gain
more information on the project. He re-
ported that the City has already spent ap-
proximately $4,900 on engineering and if
hiring another engineer is preferred, it
would be at their expense.
Mr. Seager requested the Council allow
them at least another month before they
act upon DMG’s permits for the rail siding.
Elke Baxter further questioned the hy-
draulic study and why it was not provided
to the community. FO Van Lint stated that
the report is available in the Finance Of-
fice. She stressed that all of the informa-
tion regarding this project is a public
record and is available to the public for re-
view during office hours.
Jay Baxter then confirmed that he did re-
ceive a copy of the study from the Fi-
nance Office earlier today and is very
grateful for the assistance that has been
provided by the office. He is also appre-
ciative of the Mayor and Council for all of
the time and energy that they have spent
reviewing the project and the concerns of
the community. Unfortunately though, he
is still uncomfortable with the project pro-
ceeding and is unsure if an additional
thirty days will be sufficient in contacting
the Army Corp to review the flooding con-
cerns and reviewing the hydraulic study
in more detail. He stressed that he is also
not an engineer and wants concrete infor-
mation, ensuring that the flooding risk for
his property and his neighbors will not in-
Don Burns made further comment that if
the City should approve DMG’s permits,
it does not prohibit the neighborhood
group from hiring an engineer or lawyer.
Vetter then requested the Council’s posi-
tion on acting on DMG’s permits, are they
in favor of granting the community mem-
bers an additional thirty days to gather
more information?
Council Member Larson stated that the
engineers have already concluded that
the project will not affect the flooding and
questioned what would be gained by wait-
ing until the January meeting and what
will happen at that time.
Rod Knutson questioned if they have
looked further into installing an additional
culvert. Mr. Banks noted that they hired
their engineers to review this possibility
and it was found that displacing dirt
around the trestle will provide more im-
provements to the area than a 10’ by 10’
box culvert that is estimated to cost
$100,000. In addition, it was noted that
the culvert may have adverse effects,
causing flood waters to back up.
Council Member Henrie stated that she is
not opposed to allowing an additional
thirty days, suggesting that they have a
plan in place as it may not be a sufficient
time period to have a report from the
Army Corps or another engineer.
Council Member Matt stressed that the
project area is in the flood zone and flood-
ing is going to occur. He then stated that
he does not want to stall the project any
further, but would be willing to grant the
group an additional thirty days.
It was questioned what information
should the group provide to the Council
by the thirty day deadline and if a plan of
action would be sufficient or do they need
to have all of the information that they
want the Council to consider at that time?
Mayor Vetter stressed that DMG has
been patient with the City regarding their
permits and the community’s requests.
He would recommend the Council act on
their rail siding permits during the Jan. 7,
2013, Council meeting and recommend
that the group provide any additional in-
formation that they would to the Council
to consider during this time.
Following a lengthy discussion, motion
was made by Gartner, seconded by
Arthur to table action on DMG’s building
and flood development permit for phase
II, rail siding construction until the Jan. 7,
2013, Council meeting. Motion carried
with all members voting aye.
Mayor and Council thanked those in at-
tendance for attending and a majority of
the audience left at this time.
Council Member Larson then apprised
the Council of a recent meeting with rep-
resentatives from the National Parks
Service (NPS) regarding the develop-
ment of a community trail plan. Their
services are to develop a broad spectrum
plan free of charge. It will not include any
engineering, but the plan can be utilized
in applying for various grant opportunities
for trails.
She mentioned that they reviewed the
community and discussed various areas
that would be ideal for a trail, stating that
the plan will more than likely be broken
down into phases. The areas considered
ranged from the school to the football
field; a safe route to the swimming pool
and park; and, from town to Lake Wag-
goner to name a few. The SD Hwy
73/Larimer Ave. sidewalk project was also
discussed and they would also like to re-
view those plans in order to incorporate it
into the overall plan.
In an effort to proceed with the plan, an
additional community meeting with the
representatives is being planned for
sometime during the week of Jan. 21,
2013. Since this will be a community proj-
ect, not solely the City’s, other community
groups have been contacted in order to
gain their input.
No action was taken.
Council Member Gartner informed the
Council that the Philip Volunteer Fire
Dept. has been awarded a $5,000 grant
from the Independent Insurance Agents
of South Dakota Service Corp. for the
purchase of new pagers. He expressed
his sincere appreciation to DFO Smith for
her assistance in submitting the grant ap-

Vonda Hamill also thanked the Mayor and
Council, noting that as a School Board

1he 73- 3aloon's annual wild game feed was held lriday, November 9, the
evening before the opening of west River deer season. 1his year's orowd was the
largest so far, ¨probably beoause people were hearing how good it was," said
LouAnn Reokling, the main oook of the orew that annually provides the various
dishes. 1he smorgasbord fare inoluded turkey, pheasant shish kebabs, elk oasse-
role, and other seleotions, though this year there was no turtle soup.

December ’Round the World elementary concert
On December 4, the Philip Elementary students sang and danced to songs that
represented the various December celebrations around the world. These included
holidays from Mexico, China, Africa and America, as well as the Jewish Hanukkah
and German Christmas pickle tradition. As seen in the two photos at right, stu-
dents went through the audience as, above, reindeer, and, below, a Chinese New
Year dragon. Above, the sombreros were plentiful. Below, the concert ended with
traditional American Christmas songs and the December ’Round the World
theme. Photos by Bartels
Select members of the Philip High School and Junior High band participated in

Philip Modern Woodmen of
America members recently pro-
vided assistance to the Country
Cupboard food pantry. The Philip
Modern Woodmen chapter donated
canned goods as part of the organi-
zation‘s Care and Share program.
Coordinated by local Modern
Woodmen members, chapters pro-
vide opportunities to connect
through social activities and volun-
teer projects. Care and Share is a
nationwide program that offers
Modern Woodmen chapters an op-
portunity to provide up to $250 of
basic life necessities to individuals
and families in need in their com-
munities. Each year members for
over 600 chapters purchase and do-
nate thousand of dollars worth of
food, clothing and more.
“When a family needs household
items after a natural disaster or
other crisis, or a shelter or food
panty needs more supplies to help
families, Modern Woodmen mem-
bers can help through this annual
project,” said Don Haynes, local
Modern Woodmen activities coordi-
nator. For more information, con-

The Philip Area wrestling squad
proved they have what it takes
when they participated against 35
top ranked schools from four states
at the Rapid City Invitational
Wrestling Tournament
Philip Area stood in the 11th
place slot at the end of day on Fri-
day, December 7. The top four from
the first day’s action were Pierre,
Gillette, Wyo., Bismarck, N.D. and
Rapid City Central. At the end of
day two, December 8, Philip Area
finished sixth and well ahead of
other B division schools.
While head coach Matt Donnelly
is pleased with how the team
placed, he said he knows they can
do better. He said had they had
just one pin more they would have
had the fifth place spot. But it was
a good accomplishment, he said.
Donnelly noted that the team
cannot have kids not placing.
Those kids, he said, will have to
pick it up some. Everything could
be better in all aspects, he said.
They did not have wrestlers at
the 126 and heavyweight divisions.
Donnelly said Philip Area sent
some of the younger wrestlers to a
middle school tournament where
they could hone their skills more.
The top 10 teams at tourna-
ment’s end were Pierre in the first
slot with 215.5 points, Rapid City
Central – 181.5, Gillette, Wyo. –
175.5, Bismarck, N.D. – 163,
Huron – 140, Philip – 139.5, Wind-
sor, Colo. – 135.5, Spearfish/Lead-

eyes? With all the electronic gadg-

Monday was a nice day and Bill
got ambitious and polished the
1962 Thunderbird before going to
Philip for cards. He had to get
away to rest! I was busy getting
things ready for our trip to
Rochester, Minn.
Sandee Gittings was in the
Hayes area Tuesday afternoon and
also went to Pierre.
Tuesday bright and early Bill
and I were on the road to
Rochester, Minn., for appoint-

and settled in at a motel. The next
day was full of appointments.
Don and Vi Moody had a busy
week at the ranch and enjoyed vis-
iting and shopping in Philip and er-
rands in Kadoka, getting feed sup-
plements before the cold weather
and snow came to the area. They
got all the livestock settled in for
the predicted snow and a warmer
week is going to be appreciated
again. They were putting up a few
more of their Christmas decora-
tions including the "other" quick

cept for a special Christmas bobble

depicting a wildlife scene with a
pair of pretty pheasants in a natu-
ral winter wonderland setting. The

and I rested a bit, then went to
Cannon Falls, Minn., to meet sec-
ond cousins, Craig and Pat
Buswell, Hastings, Minn., and
Mark and Barb Buswell, Prior
Lake, Minn. We had an enjoyable
evening visiting about their
Grandma, Edna Buswell and
Grandpa Hubert Buswell. I need to
dig out some of the history for them
and any pictures I can find. Here in
Kadoka friend Phyllis Word was
checking in on the cat and picking
up the mail.
Wednesday Tony Harty picked
up his mail then visited Shirley
Hair about the same time propane
was delivered. Tony played with
the little dogs while Shirley took
care of the outside activity. Then
Tony went for coffee and lunch out.
Thursday Bill was being scanned
from top to bottom and back again,
which left me in the waiting room.
I struck up a conversation with a
fellow seated close to me, dressed
in white pants and shirt that ap-
peared to be linen, but not wrin-
kled. He had gray hair and when I
asked where he was from he
replied, India. I discovered that he
and his family came to Rochester
each year and had for many years.
He was a farmer in India. I said
when I called for tech support for
my computer I quite often got
young men from India that helped
me. He said that he had trouble
getting workers on the farm be-
cause the young were going into
the technology field. I asked if mar-
riages were still arranged, he
smiled and said yes. I had also
heard that when a young man mar-
ries, he and his bride live with his
parents. He said there are gener-
ally five generations living to-
gether. They eat together but have
separate rooms to live in. He told
me everyone in India speaks three
languages, English, the State lan-
guage (which varies from area to
area) and the Nations language.
But English is spoken by everyone
in India and is universal. Now, for
the farming aspect, they have do-
mestic help in the house and the
women and children all help out-
side with the farm. This farm is
something else since it encom-
passes a lot of variety. He said they
dairy. They milk water buffalo, the
milk is 20% richer than anything
produced here in the U.S.A. They
do pasteurize and homogenize the
milk but he thought that much of
that processing was what caused
problems to immune systems. They
raise cane, sugar cane that is, and
take it from the planting right
down to processing the sugar and
utilize all the by products along the
way. The same went for the other
crops they raised. He said they did
not waste anything, taking the ma-
nure through a digested, making
methane gas and running most of
the farm using it. Then he was
called away and Bill came out, a
few more minutes and maybe I
would have had an address to visit
in India. Maybe next time! Bill and
I skipped the late afternoon ap-
pointment with the doctor to avoid
being caught in some potential
winter weather, leaving word that
if there was anything major, call
and we would come back. No call,
so we arrived home that evening
just a little after dark.
Our sympathy to the family of
Barney Pfeifer, who passed away
this week in Philip. Barney was an
avid hunter and spent quite a little
time enjoying that sport over his
life as well as fishing.
Friday morning we awoke to a
light snow cover here in Kadoka.
Bill made his usual trip to Philip
for cards in the afternoon and I at-
tended the visitation for Harold
Schnee, at the Presbyterian
Church in the afternoon. We got to
know Harold after moving to
Kadoka and I enjoyed many visits
with him since we had a sheep
bond. It was his band of sheep we
saw as we came into town from the
West with the Great Pyrenees dogs
on guard. Our sympathy to the
family in their loss.
No word from Ralph and Cathy
Fiedler so hope they shook off the
colds and all is well. It is such a
busy time of year getting cards
mailed, decorations up, baking
done, etc., that you don’t really
make news, just accomplish things
around home.
I attended the services for
Harold Schnee Saturday morning.
Bill was holding down a chair at
the card room in Philip in the after-
noon (it’s a tough job but somebody
has to do it), meanwhile here at
home I took the trash to the dump,
it was a pretty nice day and not
windy, so a good time to get rid of
stuff. Bill came home early and we
went out for supper but encoun-
tered wind, freezing rain and blow-
ing snow before we got home. Need
to check weather better before ven-
turing off too far.
George and Sandee Gittings met
Ed and Marcia Morrison in town
for supper Saturday evening.
Sandee had plans to be on the road
early Sunday morning with Jes-
sica, but the weather kicked that
trip out the door when I-90 was
closed from Chamberlain to Sioux
Falls, and I-29 closed too. So,
Sandee got busy and made up her
recipes for candy and other sweet
treats, a total of five or six things,
and the voice of experience is they
are all good. She enlisted the help
of great grandson Daniel and to-
gether they spent some quality
kitchen time
Vi Moody had a call from her
friend Nancy Gaylord, Branford,
Conn. Sunday evening and things
are getting nearly back to normal
after Hurricane Sandy and Nancy
always looks forward to talking
about S.D. at her meeting with her
retired friends from Ch. 8 TV, New
Haven, Conn., when they have
their monthly luncheon and the
topic seems to be quite common for
Nancy to bring up her friends in
S.D. Nancy is very proud as she
knows four people from here (Don,
Vi, Marsha, and Bill) and she loves
to relate Vi's news about this area
for a conversation topic. Last one
being the Missouri River pipeline
and how it has helped our state
with such severe drought issues.
These visits with Nancy are some-
times quite lengthy but very enjoy-
able and interesting.
Sunday, we had drifts! The lilac
bushes caught about three to four
feet of snow, which keeps it from
around the buildings. It was still
very blustery in the early morning.
In the afternoon, I visited Lee and
Roberta Vaughan in Philip to take
care of Civil Air Patrol business.
The KCBA sponsored a Christmas
event with Santa taking requests
from children, and free bingo and
chili and sweet rolls served after-
ward as a fund raiser for the 4-H
club. It was a full house.
A long awaited event took place
for Tony Harty on Sunday. Even
with nasty roads here in Kadoka,
he was up and at ‘em early, headed
to Rapid City. This was the day he
was to get a 51” big screen TV. This
fall a group was selling raffle tick-
ets for the Black Hills Youth Foot-
ball League at the football game
here in Kadoka and Tony bought
some chances. About a month ago
he got a phone call to let him know
he’d won the grand prize, the BIG
TV They wanted to make the pres-
entation December 9, so Tony had
to wait all that time. He said he
was fortunate that the further west
he went the better the roads were
and the day turned beautiful. He
got the TV home and in the house.
Dale Koehn and Kathy Brown
came over to help get it put into
place. When all was hooked up and
running Tony was amazed at the
quality and clarity of the picture.
Congratulations Tony!

Leather, loaded, set up to pull!
Greetings from snow covered,
cool, mostly wind still, partly
sunny northeast Haakon County!
It looks like today is going to be a
beautiful day! We are getting closer
and closer to Christmas, so I hope
you are all well on your way to
being prepared for all the festivi-
ties. I haven't done the math to fig-
ure out exactly how many "shop-
ping days" are left, but the gifts
aren't the most important thing
Speaking of festivities, the local
schools are preparing for their
Christmas programs. Cheyenne
School will be having their pro-
gram this Thursday at 7:00 p.m.
(CT) at the Kirley Hall, and the
Deep Creek students will be having
their program on Wednesday, De-
cember 19 at 7:00 p.m. (CT) at the
school. The students are working
hard, preparing for the programs.
I hope they will have good crowds.
Everyone is invited.
Even though it is the season for
snow, it seems like the first snows
always kind of take me by surprise.
We had snow Friday morning, and
we woke up to more snow and wind
on Sunday morning. Marge Briggs
said we received two inches of snow
on Sunday, but the wind pushed
that snow into some pretty big
drifts in spots. The snow was pretty
fluffy, so it didn't cause much diffi-
culty, but according to Marge, we
received .30 inches of moisture, and
of course every bit is welcome this
