Pioneer review
by Del Bartels The radiology department of Philip Health Services Inc. has had a Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) scanner installed. This is a specialized device for detecting bone density, and the onset of osteopenia and osteoporosis. PHSI used to offer this service through a mobile unit, but the mobile unit service out of Rapid City was discontinued and disbanded in early 2011. PHSI has now purchased the same equipment that was used before, and that machinery has been installed for regular use in Philip. All four of the PHSI radiology technologists – Department ManKayla Eymer, Lacey ager Clements, Lori Seager and Mindy Green – will operate the machine on their scheduled days. They were trained by a General Electric applications trainer from Minneapolis, during an eight-hour course taken over two days. After the patient fills out a form telling of their personal and family history concerning bone diseases and breaks, the DEXA scan itself takes only about 15 minutes. This particular test, though important

Ravellette Publications, Inc. launches PHSI installs permanent DEXA scanner e-Editions of two of its seven newspapers
Electronic editions ... Entire issues of seven weekly newspapers owned by Ravellette Publications, Inc., will be accessible from any of three addresses of pioneer-review.com, ravellettepublications.com or philipsd.com. The e-Editions of the Pioneer Review and the Pennington County Courant are currently viewable for free so the readership may learn to navigate the site. Eventually subscriptions will be required, which will include user names and passwords.
The venture continues for Ravellette Publication, Inc., in creating electronic editions of its seven newspapers, as a complement to its newsprint editions. Until recently, the readership could access a teaser version of the Pioneer Review on the newspaper’s website. The website – accessible from any of three addresses of pioneer-review.com, ravellettepublications.com or philipsd.com – is now undergoing a major update from the limited inclusion of some of the main stories. It will now be a complete page-by-page edition of eventually each issue of each newspaper. The e-Editions of the Pioneer Review and the Pennington County Courant are available now, with the other newspapers to come online before the end of this summer. For a limited time, the e-Editions of the Review and the Courant are free. They are already available in their entirety in the e-Edition version. “The newspapers will eventually go behind a ‘paywall’ once we get all of the kinks worked out,” said Kelly Penticoff, general manager of operations at Ravellette Publications. “Right now the public is invited to navigate the site and get used to the features. They can place classifieds, wedding and engagement announcements right now.” The site offers several ways of viewing the electronic newspaper. It can be seen be scrolled, sliding or booking. For easier reading, each section can be zoomed-in. A certain number of back issues may be revisited at the subscriber’s discretion. When possible, some of the photos for the main stories will be in color. It is hoped that the public will find the navigation to be easy, once a little time is used exploring the different facets of the e-edition of the hometown newspapers before the free time is over. “The public will be notified a week or so before this happens so they can subscribe. Once it does go behind the ‘paywall,’ then a subscriber will pay online for a yearly subscription and will create a user name and password,” said Penticoff. Some of the stories popping into the new system are from older issues of the newspapers. As time goes on and experience increases, all the stories and photos will be current per issue. The e-editions will be available on the same dates that the print editions come out. Each subscription, user name and password will be for each individual newspaper. Subscriptions for the newsprint version and for the e-edition version will be separate.

for its informative results, is not ever urgent. Most women 50 years of age or older should have this test, upon a doctor’s orders. The patient lies on the pad and the technologists scan the patient’s lower back and then their hips. If the patient has had a bone operation or a replacement in those areas, the scan is then of their forearm. There is no film, such as seen from x-rays. The information from the DEXA scanner is recorded in chart form with the graphs in three colors. This information is wired directly to a computer terminal. Dr. Coen Klopper is the PHSI practitioner who interprets the readings. Women do not retain their bone density as well as do men. One recommendation to fight the weakening of the bones is to supplement one’s diet with vitamin D, especially at a younger age. A person with signs of osteoporosis has a far greater chance of experiencing bone fractures, especially of the hips, and of vertebra compression. DEXA scans are used to measure bone mineral density because they are more accurate than regular xrays. A person would need to lose 20-30 percent of their bone density before it would show up on an xray. DEXA scans require less radiation exposure than CAT scans or radiographic absorptiometry. People are exposed to more radiation on a coast to coast airline flight than during a DEXA scan. The radiation exposure from a DEXA scan is approximately one-tenth of the radiation from a chest x-ray, which that is approximately about three days exposure to the sun.
Nursing home Christmas party ... The residents and staff of the Philip Nursing Home held their annual Christmas party, Thursday, December 22, in the dining room. Santa visited, handed out gifts and chatted with the residents. Staff, who wore “I believe in Santa” elf caps, had drawn names for which resident would receive a gift from that staff member. Family and friends dropped in for the gift-giving and the following snacks. Shown are Gladys and Richard Smith with Santa. Photos by Del Bartels Santa and Mrs. Claus at the theater ... Santa and Mrs. Claus made
a guest appearance at the Gem Theatre, Thursday, December 22. After the audience viewed the free animated movie “We Wish You a Merry Christmas,” the two celebrities handed out candy canes and listened to what individual children wanted for Christmas. The young-atheart of all ages – babies to adults – sat on Santa’s knee or hugged Mrs. Claus. Shown above is Tierny Arthur discovering that a candy cane is an extra bonus to meeting Santa.

S.D. Attorney General honored for fighting drunk driving, underage drinking
all been chosen to receive the Century Council’s 2011 Leadership Award for their ongoing dedication to fighting drunk driving and underage drinking. According to the underage drinking statistics from the 2011 Monitoring the Future Survey, the number of underage students consuming alcohol in their lifetime, in the past year, or in the past 30 days, has reached historic low levels. Since the Century Council’s inception, past month alcohol con- sumption among eighth, 10th, and 12th graders has declined by 49 percent, 36 percent, and 26 percent, respectively. Understanding the complexity of this issue, this year’s award recipients joined the Century Council to combat drunk driving and underage drinking. Each of the attorneys general has participated in launching the Ask, Listen, Learn program in middle schools in his or her state, worked to strengthen laws dealing with drunk driving, and created public service announcements that ran statewide to encourage kids to say “Yes” to a healthy lifestyle and “No” to underage drinking. “You would be hard pressed to find individuals who have worked harder to fight drunk driving and underage drinking,” said Ralph Blackman, president of the Century Council. “Each one of them has been a tireless advocate for the citizens of their states.” The Century Council is a not-forprofit organization funded by distillers. Through legislation, education and public awareness campaigns, the council promotes responsible decision making regarding alcohol.
Five attorneys general from across the nation are being recognized for their extraordinary efforts to eliminate drunk driving and underage drinking in their respective states. Celebrating its 20th anniversary, the Century Council, a national not-for-profit organization funded by distillers, is honoring leaders who have shown an outstanding commitment in this area. Attorneys General Marty Jackley – South Dakota, John Suthers – Colorado, Paula Dow – New Jersey, Rob McKenna – Washington, and J.B. Van Hollen – Wisconsin, have
Old is new ... by Del Bartels
A New Year’s resolution does not necessarily have to be about something new. A promise to quit smoking counts even if the person plans to extend his last three years of no longer being a smoker. That kind of thinking also applies toward other possible resolutions. I resolve to continue to never miss an opportunity to crack a joke or pull a prank. This has been my goal for decades now, even though it has caused problems. Putting a whoopee cushion on the king’s throne at coronation is hilarious, though somewhat suicidal. I resolve to keep in contact with some very old friends, even though I don’t believe in séances. I resolve to continue watching my weight, even though most full length mirrors are now too narrow. I resolve to continue to be careful with my driving, which is easier now that most people who see me coming hurry and get off of the sidewalk. I resolve to continue to watch less and less television, so I will probably continue to fall asleep in front of the TV earlier and earlier each night. Some of the old year should be kept with the new year, and with any resolutions. “I will make new friends” may not be quite as important as “I will spend more time with old friends.” The idea of starting a new hobby might be great, but keeping the photo albums up-to-date and continuing to send birthday cards should not be put aside. Cooing and fussing over the neighbor’s new baby is great, but complimenting the baby’s older sister on her pre-school drawing is also important. A stringent new diet is important to staying alive, but stopping once a week to visit and for one of wheelchair-bound Mrs. Johnson’s cookies is what living is all about. What good is hunting for a larger buck trophy: having your kids turn out better than you did, striving for that closer friendship or volunteering more if you have nothing previous to compare or gauge these things to? The new year would be nothing without the old. The incoming New Year’s Baby is handed the hourglass from outgoing Father Time. We herald the new year with the song “auld lang syne.” People don’t often imagine celebrating a New Year’s party with new-found friends, but with old, dear friends and family. Family traditions abound at New Year’s, serving oyster stew, or clinking glasses of wine, or kissing at the stroke of midnight, or waking up from the living room chair long enough to wish the wide-awake kids a happy new year. How old is the tradition of the ball dropping in Times Square on New Year's Eve? Resolutions might imply something new – some kind of change. Some of my resolutions do that, but one of my plans for the new year is to hold on with all of my might to what I consider the best things of the old year. Friends, memories, dreams, lessons learned, triumphs realized ... these come with me into the new year. Yes, it may be a new year, but the old year makes the new one what it is ... or rather what it will be.

S.D. Department of Tourism’s Macy’s parade efforts a success
The South Dakota Department of Tourism’s message reached the eyes of more than 330 million people in November, thanks to various public relations tactics combined with the float, “Mount Rushmore’s American Pride,” which appeared in the nationally televised Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The department’s efforts began with a street team effort in New York City. Four mascots representing the faces of Mount Rushmore National Memorial made stops at several iconic New York sites, which generated excitement and attention from bystanders. To complement the street team effort, the department of tourism staff handed out collateral material which encouraged recipients to register for a chance to win a South Dakota vacation. The giveaway, which ended December 16, garnered 10,362 entrants. The final element of the Macy’s efforts was the Thanksgiving Day parade itself, which included the South Dakota float, “Mount Rushmore’s American Pride,” and featured Neil Diamond singing “America” for NBC’s telecast of the parade Parade efforts statistics Parade audience – 63.5 million; live – 3.5 million; NBC – 50 million; CBS – 10 million Unique page views on TravelSD.com/Macys were up 695% from November 19 through December 1, 2011, over the same time period in 2010. Direct earned media in November – 207 clips (broadcast, print and online); audience – 271 million people; publicity value – $860,000+; social media – 2,075 mentions across eight social media channels A video summary of the Macy’s efforts has been compiled, and is available at http://youtu.be/8mAiBvkHsTg. November 2012 will be the third and final year of the contract between South Dakota Tourism and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The South Dakota Department of Tourism is comprised of Tourism, the South Dakota Arts Council, and the South Dakota State Historical Society. The department is led by Secretary James D. Hagen.

Pesticide Applicator Re-certification Meetings The South Dakota Department of Agriculture and SDSU Extension are getting geared up to offer both Private Pesticide Applicator Certification-Re-certification meetings; and Commercial Pesticide Applicator Re-certification Meetings across the state. As mentioned in last weeks’ column, the list of Private Applicator Certification Meetings in South Dakota can be found on the SDSU website: http://www.sdstate.edu/ ps/extension/pat/pat-county-dates.cfm. Commercial Pesticide Applicators across South Dakota have been receiving postcards notifying them if they need to be re-certified, and listing the website they need to visit to register for one of the classes. The Commercial PAT Recertification Meetings are listed on the S.D. Dept. of Ag website: https://apps.sd.gov/doa/ecat3/ApplicatorMeetingPrograms.htm. The schedule starts January 4 with a series of meetings offering re-certification in some of the “minor” categories of Forest, Ornamental & Turf, Structural/ Industrial/Stored Products, Aquatic Pest Control, Public Health, and Wood Preservative. These meetings will be hosted from one of the sites, with moderators at several sites across the state which will connect with the presenters via interactive audio-video conferencing. Re-certification meetings for the major agriculture categories, in which most of the commercial applicators in South Dakota are certified, are being held in selected sites from January 19 to February 6, all in person. Re-certification meetings via interactive audio-video conferencing in the minor categories resume February 7, 8 and 13, in Grain Fumigation, Rodent & Bird/Predator, and a second session for Forest/Ornamental & Turf. The SDSU Regional Extension Center in Winner will be one of several locations across the state where re-certification meetings in the minor categories will be offered via audiovideo conferencing. On the website listed above, each meeting has a link “Agenda”, which contains a schedule for the meeting, a link where you can register for the meeting location of your choice, addresses for each

As indicated on the agendas: “Please have a government issued photo ID (i.e. driver’s license) available when you check in”. Winter Watering of Woody Plants With the dry fall and warm temperatures across South Dakota, John Ball, SDSU Extension Forester has been getting questions about watering trees and shrubs, which is not a normal practice in December. In general, he explains that watering this time of year is not highly needed, and not very effective. It’s generally better for them to enter the winter well watered. There are cases, when evergreen trees and shrubs are located on the south side of homes or buildings, the soils are not frozen, and air temperatures are above 40 degrees F, mid-day watering can be helpful. For more information, visit the 12/15 issue of John’s Pest Alert at: http://sdda.sd.gov/ Forestry/educational-information/pestalertarchives.aspx. Mulch will help to control weeds, hold in moisture, conserve water and protect soil from erosion. If you mulch perennial plantings it's best to use compost make from woody bulking agents because it will decompose slower, resists compaction and slows weed establishment. Winter composting: Frozen compost obviously only sits there for the winter months, so if you don't want to waste time and have a spot that won't freeze in your basement or garage consider using a large trash can lined with a heavy duty trash bag indoors. Add about two gallons of garden soil or finished compost, then simply add your daily kitchen scraps, shake the whole thing slightly to mix it and get a jump on spring. Trouble shooting: What if hot compost isn't hot? If pile is dry, add moisture If pile is too wet, add more bulking agents or cover the pile. If pile smells fouls, try turning it more often or add more bulking agents to increase amount of oxygen. Remember that any compost pile will eventually decay, even if it doesn't heat. Health & Safety issues: Weed seeds? Do keep diseased plants and seed heads (especially weeds) out of the compost pile. Avoid products which decay very slowly, like cedar or large woody items. To be on the safe side, discard or burn any diseased plant material at the end of the season rather than composting it. Fire? A compost pile will only ignite if it has a very hot zone next to a dry zone. Fires do not start in small or moist piles. Manure? Avoid fresh animal manure in compost designated for garden crops which are to be used fresh, because it can contain disease organisms. Never use dog, cat or pig manure due to potential parasites. Never add meat or fats to your compost pile either. Herbicides? They can be a problem in your compost pile. Read the product label – some herbicides stay active for months or longer. When in doubt, let the pile sit for a year or longer. If you have lawn clippings which have been treated, leave them as a mulch layer on your lawn instead of putting them in your compost. Composting kitchen scraps: If your compost pile attracts rodents, you might want to consider a worm bin instead. Products which can be recycled in a worm bin include fruit and veggie peels, grains, pasta, baked goods, coffee grounds and filters. Don't add meat products. Worm bins need to be temperature and moisture controlled. Bin sizes vary – a box 1'x2'x3' would hold about two pounds of worms and can handle about six pounds of kitchen wastes per week, which is about average for a family of four to six. You will have to use one of two varieties of red worms for your box. Earthworms will not survive in a worm box. Another way to build a planting bed and compost at the same time is by LASAGNA gardening. More on it another time.

Composting By Elke Baxter Composting carries out part of the earth's biological cycle of growth and decay. When plants die they become the raw materials for the composting process. Microorganisms, fungi, insects, worms, mites and other creatures convert the carbon from dead plants into energy for their own growth, eventually recycling themselves back into the process. The remaining material from this process is similar to soil organic matter which holds water and nutrients in the soil, making the soil more porous and easier to work with. There are basically two ways of composting: Hot (or fast composting) and Cold (or slow) composting. The key to hot compost is the right balance of food, water and air in the compost pile to favor the growth of heat loving microorganisms in which a compost pile heats up to between 120 and 150 degrees. At this temperature both diseases and weeds seeds are killed. Once the hot phase is complete, the lower temperature microorganisms, like worms and insects complete the decay process. Necessary ingredients for a hot compost pile are energy or green materials, those of high moisture, low porosity and high nitrogen. This group includes grass clippings, fresh manure, kitchen wastes, coffee grounds and garden trimmings. The other ingredient is bulking or brown agents, those of low moisture, high porosity and low nitrogen. This list includes wood chips or sawdust,shredded paper, pine needles, hay, straw and corn stalks. Particle size also matters in a compost pile, as small particles decay much quicker than larger ones. A hot compost pile requires a relatively uniform particle size of 1/8” to 1/2” diameter. The proper ratio of necessary products is 1 part nitrogen (energy or green materials) to two parts carbon (bulking or brown materials), also including water and oxygen. If all materials are on hand at the same
time, mix them thoroughly and water them to be nice and moist but not wet (you should not be able to squeeze water out of it). The pile can be placed simply on the ground or in a well aerated bin of sorts but should be at least 3'x3'x3' in size. A larger pile will heat up better. Remember to turn the pile regularly since only the center becomes very hot, while the edge materials remain much cooler. In our climate you will most likely have to water your pile on occasion, but do cover the pile during rain to keep it from becoming too wet. Turn weekly for proper aeration. The pile should stay hot for several weeks up to a month. At that point it will have shrunk to about one-half its original size. It then needs to sit for another four to eight weeks to cure. You have ready to use compost when at least eight weeks have passed since you started the pile, it no longer heats
up when turned and the material looks dark, crumbly and smells like good soil. Cold compost on the other hand happens when the ideal conditions for a hot compost pile are not met by either the wrong ratio of materials, inadequate air, water or quantity of materials. The materials will decay slowly, perhaps taking a year or two to completely decay. It's also cooler and will therefore NOT kill weed seeds or pathogens (diseases). Shredding any woody materials will help to speed up the process. Use your finished compost to amend the soil in your garden by mixing 1” to 2” into the soil before planting vegetables, flowers, lawn or cover crop. You can also mulch with your compost by applying it on top of soil in early summer after plants are established and the soil has warmed. Later in the year you can work the mulch into the soil.

They brought along a couple of train engines and cars to play with. Plus, I keep a ball under the table in case kids come. We went up on third floor of Somerset Court and walked a lap. Kids needed to run. We stopped at Grandma’s Attic and the kids rode the rocking horse and we took photos. We played a little pool and Tiger won the game. Their mom, Sheridan, was having a party. Somerset Court had Tuesday afternoon bingo. Thank you for the entertainment. Following bingo, we had snack and chat and the treats were rice krispie bars. Flossie knows Jeannette Burnett, Philip, and also Gloria French. Tuesday, I got a card from Philip High School classmate of 1937, Harry Lee Brown, Mayfield Heights, Ohio.

In my childhood, we said “ring-tailed doodler-sockdolager.” Maybe Mark Twain used that word too. Kent and Brian Hagg had lunch at Somerset Court Thursday with their mother, Mary Hagg. Remember the Canadian holiday, boxing day, December 26. Box up all the stuff you got for Christmas that you don’t like, or maybe you got a new one and want to part with the old one, and put it on your doorstep. It is like a garage sale, except you give the stuff away. The Rapid City Public Library homebound program brought me five books today, “The Litigators” (2011) by John Grisham, “Steve Jobs” by Walter Isaacson, (2011), “The Sibling Effect – What the Bonds Among Brothers and Sisters Reveal About Us” by Jeffrey Klugger (2011) and “A Book of 100 Selected Poems” by E.E. Cummings and “You Come, Too” a book of poems by Robert Frost. Merry Christmas to all of you at Pioneer Review. Merry Christmas and thank you Darlene Baye, Philip, for the nice Christmas gift, card and letter. Merry Christmas and thank you Kay Ainslie, Philip, for your card and family newsletter. Thursday, a group from the Cathedral Children’s Choir came to sing for us at Somerset Court. Some of the children were one and a half week’s old. Thursday, December 22, winter began. Wishing everyone a Happy New Year, 2012.
Moenville News
by Leanne Neuhauser • 567-3325
Greetings from partly sunny, warm, wind-free, mostly snow-free northeast Haakon County! This weather is unbelievable, and I'm enjoying every bit of it. And on top of that, the days are getting longer – life is good! I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends. It was great traveling weather, with no hint of snow or ice. And speaking of no ice, it sounds as if the annual New Year's Day ice skating party at Lee and Mary Briggs' will not be held this year due to the lack of ice. I haven't heard yet if the event will be rescheduled. The temperature will have to dip quite a bit for that to happen, but I have no doubt that we have colder weather in our future. There was good news regarding babies in the community this week. Adam and Jodi Roseth's infant son, Kam, had successful surgery early last week, and he and Jodi were able to return home Friday, just in time for Christmas! And Mark and Cheryl (Beckwith) Ulmen's daughter, Charli, continues to do well. She started off a bit small, but she is gaining weight and they hope to be able to bring her home around the first of the year. Such great news! Condolences to Aunt Ruth Neuhauser and Marge Briggs. Ruth's sister and Marge's sister-inlaw, Velma (Briggs) Bishop, passed away recently in Portland, Ore. Velma was born and raised here on Robbs Flat. She and her husband, Sherman, have three daughters and several grandchildren. Velma was a nurse in the Army, and she worked in several veteran's hospitals. She was buried in a military cemetery with military honors. Velma was 91 years old. Ruth Neuhauser had a visit last week from Bob Anderson. Bob worked for the Neuhausers years ago, and he now lives in Colorado. He spent the night at the ranch with Kevin and had lunch in Pierre with Kevin and his family. He stopped to visit Ruth in Highmore on his way to visit family in the Langford area. Ruth's son, Kevin, and family spent part of Christmas Eve with her. Ruth is enjoying receiving Christmas cards. Duane and Lola Roseth and son Rhett were Christmas Eve guests at the home of Clark and Carmen Alleman. Christmas Day, Duane and Lola hosted their children and spouses along with the Klima relatives, including Lola's mother, Joy, and Lola's sister, Linda Smith, Linda's husband, Larry, and their daughters and families. Several of the guests enjoyed some pheasant hunting near Philip on their way back home Monday. T.J. and Jeanine Gabriel and children were Friday supper guests at Billy and Arlyne Markwed's. Jeanine and children went to Spearfish Christmas Day to visit Jeanine's parents. T.J. stayed home to babysit cattle – they have some heifers that are very close to calving. This nice weather and the new barn will make calving season much easier this year for T.J. and Jeanine! Billy and Arlyne were blessed with lots of family during the Christmas holiday. Thursday, they went to Pierre to pick up their daughter, Kim. Kim and her husband, Jeff Marso, had come from their home in Missoula – Jeff stayed in town for a couple of days to visit his family. Friday, Kim's sons, Trent, Aberdeen, and Todd, Fargo, arrived at the Markwed ranch, along with Tate Gabriel, Clint and Jenna Bresee, and Cindy (Markwed) and Bruce Bresee. Brian Stapert was also a visitor at the ranch Friday. Brian grew up in our neighborhood, the son of Bud and Joyce Stapert, and now lives in Belle Fourche. T.J. Gabriel and family joined the group for supper Friday. Saturday, Danny Kurtz and friend, Shawn, Aberdeen, and Jeff Marso and boys joined the group to celebrate Christmas Eve. Christmas Day, dinner guests were Trent Kurtz, Danny Kurtz and Shawn, T.J. Gabriel, and Aunt Alice Jeitz. Monday, Kim and Jeff Marso and boys had lunch with Billy and Arlyne enroute back to their home in Missoula. Dick and Gene Hudson had Christmas dinner at the home of Gary and Deb Snook near Midland. Part of Dick and Gene's Christmas season plans were cancelled while Dick recovered from the flu – there sure has been a lot of that going around. I am glad to report that he is feeling much better now. Deb (Hudson) Burma and family are arriving this week from their home in Columbus, Neb., to spend part of the Christmas break at the ranch. Jon and Connie Johnson and sons traveled to Wheaton, Minn., to spend Christmas with Jon's mother and other relatives. Lee and Mary Briggs spent part of Christmas Eve dealing with a tractor fire. Unfortunately, the tractor was a complete loss, but thankfully the fire didn't spread to the shop or the pasture. It was a fairly windy day, so it could have been much worse. The tractor will be missed, because even though it was an older tractor, it was still doing its job (like a lot of us "older" models). Christmas Eve guests at Briggs' were Keva and Adam Joens and boys. Christmas Day, guests at Lee and Mary's were Rea Riggle and family, Cole Briggs and daughter, Erin, Vicki Johnson, and Lil Briggs. Roger and Kathy Petersen also stopped by for a visit. Keva and Adam Joens spent Christmas Day with Joens’ relatives near Eagle Butte. Cattebrie Riggle was at the ranch helping Grandma Mary with projects Monday. Nels and Dorothy Paulson were in Pierre on business last Tuesday. Wednesday they were in Midland getting new tractor tires. Christmas Eve, they joined their friends, Dale and Myrna Hartmann, and their extended family for supper. Christmas Day, Nels and Dorothy traveled to the Murdo area to spend the day with Kenny and Robin Stoner and their children, Cole and Heather, and Cole's friend, Holly. Heather works in Wall, and Cole works in Arizona. Good news from the Stoners. Leo Stoner had been a resident of the Golden Living Center in Pierre following a stroke, but he is now able to live at home. Leo and Mary Ann have a person who helps with Leo's care, along with home health personnel and physical therapy. Although Leo was comfortable in Pierre, I'll bet being home is even better! I hope things continue to go well for Leo and Mary Ann! Coreen and Julian Roseth, Nick Roseth, and Adam and Jodi Roseth and sons were Christmas Eve guests at the home of Clark and Carmen Alleman. Christmas Day guests at Julian and Coreen's were their sons, Nick, and son, Adam, Jodi and boys, and Jodi's mother, Terri. Clark and Carmen Alleman were in Pierre Thursday to attend granddaughter Morgan's school Christmas program. Friday, they hosted the Alleman family Christmas celebration. Saturday, Clark and Carmen entertained the Roseth side of the family for Christmas Eve lunch. Christmas Day, Clark and Carmen spent the day with Roy Roseth in Philip. Carmen took her father a home-cooked meal – I'll bet that was a very welcome Christmas treat! Granddaughter Morgan is spending her Christmas vacation at the ranch with Clark and Carmen, and it sounds like they have lots of interesting projects in the works. Ron and Helen Beckwith's daughter, Lori, came last Tuesday to spend the Christmas holidays with her parents. Christmas Day guests at Ron and Helen's also included Rose and Levi Briggs and children and Gary and Ann Beckwith. Ron and Helen's daughter, Cheryl, and her husband, Marc, and family spent Christmas in Sioux Falls with their new baby, Charli. Marc's sister, Michelle, lives in Sioux Falls, so she hosted the group. Ray and Nancy Neuhauser helped Craig Neuhauser celebrate his birthday Thursday by having Craig and his sons, Luke and Dylan, as supper guests. Friday, Leanne Neuhauser stopped by to drop off Christmas gifts. Later Friday evening, Nancy's daughter, Sandi, Ree Heights, arrived. Sandi and her family (five children and four grandchildren) spent Christmas Eve and Christmas with Ray and Nancy. The group had a scavenger hunt, attended candlelight services, and enjoyed a visit from Santa. Christmas Day, Christmas dinner was followed by a Wii con-

test. Sounds like the group had a good time. Sandi experienced some car trouble, so she got to stay an extra day. I didn't get to visit with Bill and Polly Bruce, but I know their family Christmas gathering is taking place later this week. Clint and Laura Alleman attended the Alleman family Christmas gathering and the Roseth Christmas gathering at Clark and Carmen Alleman's. Christmas morning, little Alivya was standing in her crib (a new trick), ready for her first Christmas! They spent the day at home. They will celebrate Christmas with the Yost family later this week. Frank and Shirley Halligan, son Murdock and family, daughter Maggie, and Grandpa Ken Halligan celebrated the holidays at Frank and Shirley's home in Ft. Pierre. Frank had his gallbladder removed earlier in the week, and he is feeling much better. Max and Joyce Jones had a full week of family and fun. Their grandsons from Onida, Zack and Tommy, arrived Wednesday. They got to attend country school with cousins, Luke and Mattie, for part of a day, then the cousins spent the afternoon decorating Christmas cookies at Grandma Joyce's home. Thursday, the group went to Pierre to celebrate Zack's ninth birthday at a swimming party, followed by cake and ice cream at the home of Zack's aunt, Steph Judson. Max and Joyce stayed home Saturday – Joyce said everyone has been taking turns being sick, and when I talked to Joyce, it sounded like it was her turn. Christmas Day, son Todd and family and daughter Kim and family were at the ranch to celebrate the holiday. I hope everyone is feeling better by now. Kevin and Mary Neuhauser spent Christmas Eve in Highmore with Ruth Neuhauser, coming back to Ft. Pierre in time for Mass. They then came to the ranch for Christmas. All three children were home for the holidays. Marge Briggs was in Spearfish at the home of her daughter, Janet, Christmas Day. Other guests included Ed Briggs and son Casey, Lynn Briggs, Rochelle Riter and friend, and Janet's friend, Larry. Marge said Janet is making rugs out of denim, so several of the guests got to help with that project. Marge also said Janet had pickled beans and carrots, which were delicious. Our Christmas celebration started Friday, when our daughter, Lori, flew in for the holidays. While I was in Pierre waiting for her plane to arrive, I dropped off gifts at Ray and Nancy Neuhauser's home and at Craig Neuhauser's home. I also had time for a short visit with Janice Neuhauser. Saturday evening, Keva (Briggs) Joens stopped by for a visit – Keva and Lori were classmates from kindergarten through high school graduation. Christmas Day, Jen and Ross Tschetter arrived, as did Chelsea Neuhauser. Later Christmas Day, my mother, Letoy Brown, Kadoka, along with my sister, Ellie Bettelyoun, and children arrived and spent the night. We had a wonderful time, and it was nice to not worry about bad weather or bad roads – such a blessing! Our daughters and son-in-law are still here, so I've been rushing through the news. I apologize in advance for any omissions or inaccuracies, but I need to get back to spending time with my family! There are so many things to be grateful for during this wonderful season, but one oddball thing keeps sticking in my mind – I am grateful for my blow dryer. I use it to dry my hair, of course, but in the last couple of weeks I have used it as I applied plastic to drafty windows at an older house at the Towne place, I used it to help defrost a deep freeze, I have used it in the past to thaw a frozen lock on an icecovered vehicle, I use it to dust intricate objects, I've used it to dry out damp boots – and the list goes on. This blow dryer has to be at least 15 years old, and it is still going strong! Sometimes it is the simple things that make our lives easier. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, and I wish you all a healthy, happy New Year! Enjoy your week, and be safe!

Joan Patterson
Joan Patterson, age 70, of Kadoka, S.D., died Sunday, December 25, 2011, at the Hans P. Peterson Memorial Hospital in Philip. Joan Dorthy Miller was born on May 17, 1941, in Jud, N.D., a daughter to Theodore and Lorraine (Jerke) Miller. She started school with German as her first language and was learning English as she attended school in Ellendale, Edgely, and Kulm, N.D., among others, and finished with her schooling with graduation in 1959 in Philip. As a young girl, she cared for her brother and sister and younger cousins. She learned in those years to become an amazing cook and caretaker. She worked at the Senechal Hotel where she met Jerry Patterson. They were married on March 24, 1966, in Philip, when she became mother to a ready-made family of six children. She and Jerry were later blessed with two daughters. She loved to be with her family and especially loved to go out to the field and check the wheat with Jerry. She helped with everything on the farm and enjoyed taking meals out to the field during harvest. In her later years, she would decorate for every holiday with Christmas time being her favorite. She and her sister, her best friend, would sit in the kitchen and wrap Christmas presents while drinking Coke and eating chocolate covered cherries. They would sit for hours speaking German about the gifts they were wrapping, and every little while they would laugh because they knew the kids didn't understand. Her grandchildren and greatgrandchildren were her greatest joy and they all wanted to sit with "Gammy" and read stories. She truly loved homemaking and taking care of her family. Blessed with sharing her life are her husband, Jerry Patterson; eight children, Robert Patterson, Sharon Bebout of Las Vegas, Nev., Grant (Susan) Patterson, Scott (Arla) Patterson, Cindy (Mark) VanderMay, Tammy (Mark) Carlson, Lisa Patterson and April Wheat Patterson, all of Kadoka. She also had 26 grandchildren, 17 extended great-grandchildren, family and many, many friends. Joan was preceded in death by her parents; one brother, DeWayne Miller; and two sisters, Carlyn Williams and Inis Iris Miller as an infant. Visitation will be held from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. Thursday, December

It's time to take stock of what transpired during the year of 2011 and look forward to 2012. May everyone experience the anticipation of the new year with excited expectations of things yet to come. We can't predict the future, nor live in the past, but only rejoice in each day as it unfolds. Happy New Year! “Stories and Recipes of the Great Depression of the 1930s”, volume III, has me captivated by the stories. Does history repeat itself? Here in South Dakota they were referred to as the “Dirty Thirtys” but if you ask someone born and raised on the West Coast, they quite often had never heard of it. “The Great Depression was a world-wide phenomenon caused, in part, by maldistribution, as stated in Current History, 1932. There was no shortage of supplies, but there was a shortage of consumption. The rich saved and didn't consume and the middle and poor classes were not able to buy. Soon the middle class was reduced to the poor.... Big business was blamed for hard times and as banks closed, bankers and board members were suspected of mishandling funds and some were tried for fraud. The Great Depression was more than that, it was also the great discouragement, the great despondency, and the great despair at a national level.” As our nation struggles to stand upright against the deficit that continues to climb as well as reducing the middle and poor class to all poor with the high price of fuel which in turn raises the cost of consumable items, we need to regain perspective and faith and control. May the year 2012 be that time. Monday, December 19, found me on the road with the Haakon County Prairie Transporation van, first to Philip, Wall, then back to Kadoka. I went to Philip after that and visited Roberta Vaughan where we finished a few Civil Air Patrol projects. After bowling, I stopped by Deb and Marty Gartner’s for a few minutes. George Gittings kept a dental appointment in Rapid City Monday afternoon. Tony Harty spent some time at the library Monday. He also visited with Russ Hattel and helped him cut up some wood. Tuesday morning, Ralph and Cathy Fiedler went to Spearfish to attend Loman Hanson's school program. He played a chef in the “Nutcracker.” They met up with his mom, Sherry, and Don, Lynette and Caitlin Klumb at the program. After the program, they went out for lunch before Caitlin had to go (continued on page 10)
Duane C. Olson
Duane C. Olson, age 85 of Kadoka, S.D., died Wednesday, December 21, 2011, at the Hans P. Peterson Memorial Hospital in Philip. Duane Calvin Olson was born November 4, 1926, at Pukwana, the son of Carl J. and Alice (Smith) Olson. He joined a family of two older brothers, Gene and Wilbur, and an older sister, Darlene, and later a younger brother, Robert, and younger sister, Shirley. Duane attended Cleveland Township grade school near Pukwana. He then attended two years of high school at Pukwana before graduating from Chamberlain High School. Duane loved baseball and played for the Pukwana Kings and Chamberlain baseball teams. He was known as the famous left handed pitcher. He played during high school and after he returned from the United States Army. Duane was also a Golden Gloves boxer. Duane decided to forgo a minor league baseball career to serve his country. Shortly after graduation, he joined the Army during World War II. He served at Ft. Riley in Kansas, before being stationed in Texas. While in Texas during a training drill, a bayonet was run through his left ring finger. His final duty station was at Fort Andrews located at Peddocks Island near Boston, Mass. He was part of the horse riding unit for the Army and was one of the best skilled riders in the unit. It was there he met the loved of his life, Dorothy Joan Silva. They spent his days off teaching Dottie to ride a horse on the sand along the beach at Peddocks Island. After completing his service of duty, Duane and Dottie were united in marriage at Cambridge, Mass., on November 6, 1949, and to this union were born three daughters, Deborah, Diane and Donna. They moved back to South Dakota and lived on the Olson Ranch near Chamberlain for a few months. From there they moved to Midland, where they ranched for over 30 years. Duane took great pride in this ranch and whenever someone came to visit he had to take them for a drive to look over the place and his cattle. In 1987, Duane and Dottie moved to Kadoka where he purchased and took over the George Olson ranch south of Kadoka. Duane ran this place until health issues in May of 2005. Duane was a resident at Philip Nursing Home at the time of his death. Duane is survived by his three daughters and their families, Deborah and Mitch Olney and their children, Duane, Rebecca, Chase and Kevin; Diane Huber and her husband, Scott, and their daughter, Fallon; and Donna Enders and her husband, Chuck, and their children, Amanda, Wyatt and Dustin, all of Kadoka; three great-grandchildren, Aspen, Dane and Jaedyn; one brother, Gene Olson and his wife, Alice, of Oacoma; a sister-inlaw, Olivia Hayes of Hookset, N.H.; many nieces and nephews; and a host of other relatives and friends. Duane was preceded in death by his wife, Dorothy Joan “Dottie” Olson, on June 19, 2005; his parents, Carl and Alice Olson; his brothers, Wilbur and Robert Olson; and two sisters, Darlene Dozark and Shirley Schmidt. Mass of Christian burial was celebrated Tuesday, December 27, at Our Lady of Victory Catholic

TWO MINUTES With The Bible
Berean Bible Society PO Box 756 • Germantown, WI 53022 • www.bereanbiblesociety.org
by Cornelius R. Stam
A large percentage of the people of the world wake up every morning with some kind of ache or pain. If you are one of the many victims, with some infirmity of the flesh, perhaps you will agree with the little chorus which says: "Heaven is better than this." The Scriptures tell us that "the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now" (Rom. 8:22). Note the expression: "the whole creation." This takes in the whole world; no one is excluded. Indeed, the very next verse goes on to say to Christian believers: "And not only they, but ourselves also... even we ourselves groan within ourselves... waiting for... the redemption of our body." No doubt many of us feel like crying out with the Psalmist David, "Look upon mine affliction and my pain" (Psa. 25:18). In spite of all sorrow, trouble and pain which the child of God must endure, however, he can be assured with the Apostle Paul that: "our light affliction, which is but for a moment [comparatively], worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory" (II Cor. 4:17). When we go to be with the Lord we will no longer be living in "this earthly tabernacle," but will have "a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens" (II Cor. 5:1). Paul even adds that as Christians we earnestly desire "to be clothed upon with our house [our new body] which is from heaven" (II Cor. 5:2). Finally, St. Paul declared that "to depart, and to be with Christ... is far better" (Phil. 1:23); far better, not only than all earth's sorrow and trouble and pain, but far better even than earth's greatest joys and its dearest treasures. How wonderful it is to know that "Christ died for our sins," to have a light beyond the grave, a hope beyond the tomb! Surely "heaven is better than this!"

Notice: December 31, beginning at 6:30 p.m., there will be a New Year’s Eve game and fun night at the Open Bible Church in Midland. Everyone in the community is invited!

An ear to the ground
by Walt Bones S.D. Secretary of Ag It was about this time last year when I was contacted by a member of the governor’s search committee and asked if I would be interested in serving South Dakota’s Agriculture industry. I recognized the unbelievable opportunity but I also realized what a life changing commitment this would be. When the governor’s chief of staff asked me to send him a resume, I had to scramble. Working on our farm has been my career. Accepting this full-time position came with a lot of soul searching and a lot of support from my wife and family. I knew this meant being away from our farm during calving, planting, harvesting and away from a group of people that I’d worked with every day for the last 40 years. But that is what we do here in South Dakota and in agriculture. Everywhere I go I meet producers that give of their time to serve in elected or volunteer positions – county commissions, township boards, water boards, church boards, the S.D. Brand Board, the S.D. State Fair Commission, animal industry board, commodity and farm organizations, the local cooperative board, the legislature – the list goes on and on. I don’t know if anyone keeps a tally on all the hours spent and if you’re lucky you might get a small stipend and your mileage paid. Meanwhile, all of you are taking time away from your families and operations, giving input and support to ideas and programs that make our industry, our state and our nation a better place to live. We must continue to stay engaged as our industry continues to evolve. If we are not at the table we are probably on the menu. Maintaining the status quo is not an option with a world population that continues to grow. I thought the Center for Food Integrity put it very well, “If the number of farms and the level of productivity had remained constant since 1950, there would be no food for anyone in the following states: California, Texas, New York, Florida, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan and Georgia.” These are the nine most populous U.S. states representing 151 million people. You all are the ones responsible for making agriculture our state’s number one industry through not only your production skills, but also your willingness to serve. Without your vision, involvement and commitment the federal government would continue to run rampant with rules and “guidance.” As we pause to celebrate the birth of our Savior and the start of a new year, I would like to say thank you for all you do. It is an honor to serve and represent you all. Merry Christmas and best wishes for a safe and prosperous New Year!

Lincoln Smith earns Seager earns master’s degree national academic honor
Northern State University, Aberdeen, senior defensive lineman Lincoln Smith has another accomplishment to add to his list of accolades, this time receiving national notice for his efforts off the gridiron. The Philip native was recently named to the Capital One/CoSIDA academic all-America first team, becoming just the seventh NSU athlete in any sport selected to the prestigious honor, and the second in the sport of football. Smith, a first team all-Northern Sun intercollegiate conference north division selection in 2011, was selected as one of four team captains by his teammates following his senior campaign. He was also an honorable mention allNSIC pick as a junior. A three-year starter, Smith led the team in sacks with 3.0 for 23 yards in 2011. He finished the season with 31 total stops, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. The 6’3”, 225-pound Smith is a former multi-sport athlete from Philip, where he was an all-state football player and state champion wrestler. Smith has played in 40 games over his NSU career, with 28 starts, 113 tackles and 4.5 sacks. Smith holds a 3.97 grade point average while majoring in management. The 26 members of the 2011 Capital One academic all-America Division II football first team have a 3.84 average GPA. The CoSIDA academic teams are nominated by the sports information directors in eight districts across the nation. Previously a twodivision program, the academic allAmerica program expanded to four divisions in 2011-12 with studentathletes being honored separately Eric Emerson Seager, a 1998 graduate from Philip High School, was a member of the Philip Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol. His plans to join the service were cut short due to a broken arm.

Country school search page added to state historical society website
A recent addition to the South Dakota State Historical SocietyArchives website is the South Dakota country school search page. The website is http://history.sd.gov /schools/HistoricalSchoolsSearch. aspx. “The project was made a reality thanks to support from the Minnehaha County Rural School Project, which funded the design and implementation of the website,” stated Chelle Somsen, State Archivist. “Currently, the search function only includes rural schools for Minnehaha County, but we are hoping that other counties will want to participate in this website.” The project began in 2005 by gathering information on rural schools in Minnehaha County and culminated in the publication of the book Rural Schools of Minnehaha County, 1871-1971 in 2008. Somsen said the State Historical Society-Archives got involved when she was contacted about adding rural schools to the state website by Celia J. Benson of Sioux Falls, project coordinator for the Minnehaha County project and author of the book. The website search function allows researchers to select a county or school name to search and the results will bring up the name of the school, a photograph of the school, the dates of the school’s existence, and its global positioning system coordinates. By clicking on the GPS coordinates, researchers will be able to locate the school on a map. Organizations that want to contribute content for the rural schools website should contact the State Historical Society-Archives at the Cultural Heritage Center in Pierre, for instructions. Call 773-3804 or visit http://history.sd.gov/archives.

Connie Johnson presented the board with a list of students who would be attending if the center were to open. The list shows 5 students for the upcoming school year with a possible 9 students by school year 2017-2018. Discussion took place regarding staffing, building condition, mileage, teacherage options and budget concerns. Members of the community asked the board that they consider making the decision now, rather than later. Some members of the board felt that waiting to see what the upcoming legislative session provides in state funding would be the best. Constituents asked that the board take responsibility for educating those students, rather than relying on Stanley County’s only rural school. Motion by Nelson, second by Thorson to table this decision until the budget committee can meet and the state aid numbers are finalized, with a decision to be made no later than the March 2012 board meeting. All members voted aye with the exception of Blair, who was opposed to the motion. 12-73 Motion by Radway, second by Nelson to approve a one-year contract with the Philip Geothermal Group. 12-74 Motion by Blair, second by Radway to approve the following personnel contracts: Holly Schaack, Assistant Girls Basketball - $2,240.00. 12-75 Bids were received and opened for the Ottumwa Mobile Unit. A bid for $500 was received from Trudy Flesner, and a bid for $800 was received from Doug Gimpel. After discussion on estimated value and the condition of the building and the possibility of needing the unit in the event that the Deep Creek school were to open, a motion was made by Blair, seconded by Nelson to reject both bids. 12-76 Supt. Morehart approached the Board with the possibility of purchasing a vehicle with Special Education funds. The vehicle would be primarily used by the Special Education department, but could be used for other travel if it was not in use by Special Ed. Travel other than Special Ed travel would be billed to the appropriate fund/club and would be paid to Special Ed at a rate of $.37 per mile. Research on cost of vehicles will be done and presented to the Board at a future meeting. 12-77 Anita Peterson gave the BHSSC report. 12-78 Motion by Blair, second by Radway to enter into executive session for personnel matters at 7:14 p.m. Meeting resumed at 7:29 p.m. Motion by Thorson, second by Blair to approve a payment of $500 to LaRae Carley for assuming additional duties in the absence of a staff member. 12-79 Secondary Principal Jeff Rieckman reported on the following items: (A) Semester tests will be administered on December 21st and 22nd.

Will try to catch up on Christmas happenings next week. Amid all the hustle and bustle of the season, I hope you have found the peace of knowing Christ and the love of God bless you, heart and soul.

On New Year’s Day there will be a party at the Hardingrove Church beginning at 4:00 p.m. Fun, food and a movie are planned for the evening. Everyone is welcome. There will be no brunch Sunday morning following church services. Jeanne Radway returned to her home in Philip last Tuesday, December 20, accompanied by her granddaughter, Melissa. Melissa is a college student so has some time to spend with her grandmother. After New Year’s, Jeanne will enter the New Underwood nursing home temporarily, where she will receive both physical and occupational therapy. While visiting in New York in October she fell, breaking her femur, so this has been a long recovery. We wish you the very best, Jeanne, and welcome home! Hugh and Ed Harty drove to Mitchell Wednesday to attend the funeral of Bert Wilson, 54, who died of Lou Gehrig's disease. Bert was Mildred (Williams) Jorgenson's son-in-law. Most of the news this week pertains to Christmas gatherings with family and friends. With the balmy weather we had, all of us could get to where we were going. The temperature at Staben's Christmas Day was 48˚ and today, December 26, it is 49˚. The Milesville School program at the hall Wednesday night drew a very large crowd. The program was exceptional and you could tell that the kids really enjoyed it. Christmas Eve, the Miles Hovland family met Quentin and Kylie Riggins, Timothy and Wesley, at Joe and Debbie Prouty's. Before coming home, they stopped to see more family at the home of Cliff and Ann Fees. Guests at Miles and Erin's Christmas Day were Allen Hovland, Joe and Debbie Prouty and Erin's aunt, Mary Hengstler. Erin said Connor was a little sad that there wasn't any snow this year, but he had fun riding his bike and playing in the sandbox after dinner. How many times can you do that on Christmas?

Because our team made up bowling last week, I was free as a bird Wednesday to get things done for Christmas, except for a couple of HCPT van runs. Early morning found me on the road to Philip. The roads were a little wet with evidence of light snow. Then it was off to Murdo, 40 miles to the east. More accumulation of snow by the time we made the round trip, but nothing too severe. As night approached, it would get much more serious with black ice. I visited at the Kadoka Care Center with Orville Sandall. Orville so enjoyed his airplane flight, but since having a stroke, he doesn't share the same excitement. I also enjoyed a visit with Harold Schnee. His room is getting more like home and his wife, Mary, had brought him a stuffed mule. On the wall is a million dollar picture of a four-horse hitch from the seat of a wagon with the badlands ahead of them. Spectacular! Emma Jarl is too fast on her feet for me to catch her, but next time. Sandee Gittings visited Jim Gottsleben and Jim Moriarty Wednesday afternoon. So much for retirement. Ralph Fiedler is back at it, he worked the evening shift at his new part-time job Thursday and Friday. Hmmm, Cathy didn't share with me what the new job is, but he did tend bar before they moved to Sturgis. Thursday morning, Tony had the drivers door on his vehicle frozen shut and when he leveraged it a bit, the window behind it shattered into thousands of pieces. After he had coffee, he called and we put it in our garage, dried things off, cut cardboard to fill the hole and duct taped it together. Thursday night, Tony was among the many at visitation for Steve Jeffords, longtime businessman in the community who lost his battle with cancer. Tony went to bingo at the city bar then visited his niece, Kathy Brown, and Dale Koehn. George Gittings took a steer to Wall Thursday to be butchered. Carol Solon stopped by our house for a visit early Thursday afternoon. Bill and I attended the visitation for Steve Jeffords. Among the items and pictures was an article where Steve had set a new state record for the disc throw and Marvin Radley, formerly of Philip, had set a record for the board jump. The Rapid City paper last week reported that there was good fishing in Lake Waggoner by Philip. So, if you have a hankerin' for crappie, blue gills and bass, you might give it a try. Don and Vi Moody arrived back in Rapid City Friday, but the glitter and excitement in Vegas still had them in awe. Lights, huge Xmas trees, traffic never ending, and planes chucked full. They had double inspection security in Vegas for their return flight. Their day started when a cabbie arrived at 3:20 a.m. They were at the airport two hours prior to departure. An elderly lady had a medical emergency on board the aircraft and the air medics came and she wasn't able to continue on the flight into Rapid City. As they were coming into Rapid, they saw Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse Monument from the air. The passengers were excited to see that! Wow, check out the Rapid City Journal on line for pictures of Mike Groven's Christmas decorations. It was also in the daily paper Saturday. Mike lights up the whole down town Kadoka with his spectacular lights every year. Not bad for an over the hill guy of 87! He did say the electric meter spins off the wall. Jessica Gittings and Daniel were in Rapid City Friday. Daniel made a visit to Santa Claus and got to ride on a train at the mall. Roxie Gittings arrived at the George Gittings’ home Friday evening for the Christmas holiday. Friday, December 23, Tony Harty went to coffee. It was a quiet morning with so many attending the services for Steve Jeffords. Tony's brother-in-law, Rodney Hockenbary, Valentine, Neb., was here for the services and visited with Tony afterward. Tony went to the library in the afternoon then helped Wilma Stout look for her grandson, who went to visit his other grandma at the Kadoka Care Center and Wilma didn't know what had happened to him. All was well after a frantic search. The boy wasn't lost at all, he knew where he was all the time! Due to a cancellation for the van, I had Friday to get things ready for Christmas and this time I really tried to glue myself to the task at hand. I did visit at the home of Dale and Cindy O'Connell. Cindy was like a baking factory turning out all kinds of wonderful looking breads, cookies, candies and the like. I gained pounds just looking at the stuff. Don and Vi Moody returned to their ranch Saturday afternoon from their winter holiday retreat in Las Vegas. They were glad to be home and found everything in fine order and the weather can't possibly be any better for livestock right now. Open grazing and supplements tend to keep cattle very contented right now. Saturday when Cathy Fiedler got home from work, she and Ralph packed up the gifts and food and headed to the Don Klumb home in Spearfish for Christmas Eve. Other family members joining the evening was Donald Klumb and Ayden, Gillette, Wyo., and his two sons, Lane and Levi Klumb, Minnesota. They are here for the week spending time with their dad, Lorene Klumb, Spearfish, and Derek and Renee (Klumb) Schmacher and Jazmin, Lead. A good supper was enjoyed by all. Gifts were exchanged and then Donald and his family headed for Gillette. The rest of the evening was enjoyed before everyone headed home. Saturday, Tony Harty was out and about after coffee. He delivered a Christmas package to Bill and me as well as visited at the home of Pastor Art and Doris Weishart and son, Jonathan, who was home for the holidays. He stopped by the grocery store to pick up ingredients for a batch of his spinach dip then visited his niece, Kathy Brown, and Dale Koehn. He helped Kathy put together some Christmas gifts. That evening, he attended the Christmas Eve services at the Lutheran church. As the paint dried on the Christmas balls I made for the kids packages Saturday, I delivered a few food items to folks, visiting Lova Bushnel and Jake Totten, (got heeled by a blue heeler dog at one place – actually drew blood) then Bill and I went to Rapid City. We enjoyed the evening and supper at the home of Zack Seager and Cori Barber. Our daughter, Shelley Seager, had stopped by Kadoka on her way through to Rapid Friday, and was busy cooking and spoiling her two grandsons, Ryder and Eli. Bill and I spent the night at the home of Eric Seager in anticipation of Christmas Day with family. Sunday after attending the Catholic church services, Tony Harty visited his niece, Kathy Brown, then went to Wall in the afternoon to visit his nephew, Casey and Cindy Weaver and family. His sister, Monica and Pat Weaver, Wanblee, were also there. He reported a full afternoon of enjoying seeing so many great-nephews and family. Don and Vi Moody went out Christmas morning bright and early to cut their Christmas tree and came home with a beautiful colored fiber optic tree that they found in a closet at the other house. Vi thinks that it would be fun to put up colored lights and decorations year round on the mantel to denote holidays! That way they can store the Christmas tree in plain sight! Kelsey and Kinsey Gittings and Natalie Zinnel of Iowa arrived at the George Gittings home Christmas morning for a surprise visit. They and their sister, Jessica, and son, Daniel, spent the day at their grandparent’s, Irwin and Patsy Ferguson, home. George, Sandee and Roxie Gittings attended church at Milesville Sunday morning (Christmas Day). Sunday, we got up a little too late to enjoy seeing the packages Santa
had left for Aviana and Eli, but did get to enjoy watching packages opened. Little Eli, six months, found the greatest gift of all, a ribbon – not just any ribbon, a red ribbon, and that entertained him immensely. A cardboard box was Ryder's favorite new toy the night before. These two little ones understand the meaning of green. There was a huge dinner with turkey and all the trimmings at Eric and Chaciel's, then some games were played. Bill and I called it a night and headed for home after the sun set, Shelley has been a houseguest at Zack and Cori's. Christmas Day when Cathy Fiedler got home from work, she and Ralph went to the Eric Hanson home in Spearfish for supper. The Don Klumb family joined them. After supper, they sang happy birthday to Sherry, and enjoyed some homemade cheesecake. Then Sherry opened her birthday gifts from the family. The kids played a new game for the TV, which also entertained the rest of the family, and some football was watched and lots of visiting done before heading home. They wish everyone a very Happy New Year! “Each morning the day lies like a fresh shirt on the bed; this incomparably fine, incomparably tightly woven tissue of pure prediction fits us perfectly. The happiness of the next twenty-four hours depends on our ability, on waking, to pick it up.” Walter Benjamin

(continued from page 9) Christmas Day at Bart and Marcy Ramsey's. Jerry and Mary Nelson hosted Jerry's brothers and sisters, Mike, Tim, Angie and Julie, and their families, plus Martin and Vera Nelson, on Christmas Eve. Christmas Day was spent at Martin and Vera's house with the same bunch plus a few more. It was so nice out that a football game was played on the lawn after dinner. Last week, from Thursday until Monday, Jason and Vonda Hamill and some friends from Spearfish took a trip to South Padre Island, Texas. Vonda's nephew, Mike Delahoyde, came from Spearfish to stay with the Hamill boys. It was cold, windy and rainy in Texas, the first rain they have had in over a year! The locals were happy with the rain, but it wasn't exactly what the tourists wanted!

Christmas Day, Mildred Radway drove out from Philip to be with the family. Leo and Joan Patton took grandson Mark Stangle to his tae kwon do lesson in Pierre Monday.

Christmas guests at Hugh Harty's were Jim and Adele Harty, Molly and Owen, and Ed Harty. Paul and Moneik Stephens had planned to come but their little girl, Mikaela, wasn't feeling well.
