“The third installment of
Stronger Economies Together was
very well attended, with great dis-
cussion, and as we neared the end
of the evening, enthusiasm about
why we are coming together in
these meeting was most definitely
growing,” said Lindsey Hildebrand,
executive director for the Wall Bad-
lands Area Chamber of Commerce.
Hildebrand was referring to the
meeting in Wall, Tuesday, Febru-
ary 12. The first community discus-
sion among members of the Bad-
lands/Bad River Region communi-
ties had been held in Kadoka, and
the second in Philip. The fourth
gathering will be in Midland at the
Open Bible Church, March 12,
starting at 4:45 p.m. Tentatively,
the meeting will include a tour of
Stroppel Inn and Bathhouse.
Kari O’Neill, community devel-
opment field specialist, reported
that Dave Hahn, mayor of Wall,
said, “As we began to meet, I ques-
tioned where we as a region could
go but this process has created an
enthusiasm within our communi-
ties and I look forward to the
progress of planning for our future.
We have been able to get to know
each other more and more each
time and the end result will benefit
us all.”
The purpose of SET is to help
rural communities and counties to
work together in creating and put-
ting into action an economic devel-
opment blueprint. This plan is to
build on the current and growing
economic strengths of the region.
The premise is that creating, at-
tracting and retaining jobs as a sin-
gle rural county in isolation is be-
coming increasing ineffective. Eco-
nomic development progress is
more likely to be realized when
rural counties work together as a
region to assess, design and imple-
ment plans that build on their com-
parative economic strengths. More
information can be seen at http://
The SET program is action ori-
ented. Each step in the process is
supposed to lead to a real goal for
that region. The first of the nine
monthly meetings was an introduc-
tion to the program. The second
was for participants to profile their
region. This latest meeting was to
begin building a strong regional
team of individuals. The meeting in
Midland will be geared toward de-
veloping the vision and goals dis-
cussed in the early sessions.
Small groups came up with spe-
cific names of people to ask to be in-
volved in SET. Reasons for involve-
ment are also a call for action. This
region is facing declining popula-
tions, fewer jobs, housing short-
ages, aging residents, youth outmi-
gration and economic instability.
People are coming together as a
part of the SET program to find so-
lutions to these issues. The team
includes a varied group of people
with access to many resources, but,
we also need the talents and net-
works others can bring to the table.
We cannot continue to watch these
factors get worse. We must act now
for results in the next one to five
years. Many impacts will last far
beyond that. We believe our efforts
will positively impact all residents
of the region; specifically small
businesses. This will encourage
people to live, work, raise their
family and retire here.
Upcoming modules will be: ex-
ploring opportunities for a stronger
regional economy, strategies for en-
hancing the regional economy, dis-
covering assets as well as barriers,
planning for success, and measur-
ing that success. Extra modules
could incluce land use and plan-
ning, entrepreneurship, technol-
ogy/networking, and others.
Attendees to this meeting dis-
cussed that what the attributes are
of a strong regional team. The
group should be able to prepare for
obstacles, can assess its own make
up of individual strengths, can en-
tice more partners, can promote ac-
tion, and can advocate for its goals.
The attendees discussed the as-
sets within this region. This helped
to identify people representing
these capitals, who should be asked
to be involved in the SET process.
Financial assets include banks, en-
dowments, community funds and
funding agencies. Natural assets
include parks and recreation, con-
servation groups, government
agencies, farmers and ranchers.
Cultural strengths include cultural
and religious groups, museums and
historical societies. Human assets
include facilitators, educators,
trainers, workforce groups, service
agencies, economic developers,
board members. Social strengths
could be civic clubs and organiza-
tions, “people who know people,”
and people with links to outside re-
sources. Political assets are elected
and appointed officials, congres-
sional staff and delegates and po-
litical groups. Assets that are or
can be built include telecommuni-
cations, utilities, industrial parks
and other businesses.
The group will involve people
with varying levels of power and
interest. People with low power or
drive and with low interest are not
worth recruiting. The group should
be dynamic in “forming, storming,
norming, performing” its plans.
Performing is the phase where
groups become confident, their en-
ergy is channeled, they are com-
fortable with new challenges, dis-
putes are handled and goals are
Stronger Economies Together
Attendees include people who have been to each meeting and newcomers. Large
group and smaller group discussions were held. Courtesy photos

The Haakon County Farm Bu-
reau Federation held its annual
meeting, Wednesday, February 13,
at The Steakhouse meeting room in
Bill Slovek, local federation pres-
ident, opened the meeting with
general federation concerns, then
introduced the other speakers.
Young Farmers and Ranchers
representative Chad Hanrahan
talked about the educational and
mentoring benefits of the program,
which is geared to farmers and
ranchers ages 18-35. YFR’s winter
conference was January 17-20 in
Oacoma. YFR ongoing topics in-
clude the beef industry advance-
ments, cattle market insights, shel-
terbelts, farm horticulture projects,
weather insurance, trends in agro-
nomic practices and programs
available for beginners. Next year’s
conference will be in Aberdeen.
Hanrahan said that the confer-
ences are for everyone, YFR mem-
bers or not.
The next speaker was Lowell
Mesman, West River regional man-
ager, who gave an update on the
Environmental Protection Agency’s
fuel tank containment rules. Spill
prevention, control countermea-
sures (SPCC) rules and recent
amendments require landowners
to have written plans in place in
case there is ever an oil spill. Mes-
man said that the rules, “originally
had milk in there as an oil, and
they got that taken out.” He said
that the requirements for such self-
certifying plans were if a certain
amount of possible contaminants
could possibly reach waters of the
United States. “Most areas have
the possibility of reaching waters of
the United States, so I recommend
you fill out the form,” said Mes-
man. Templates for the forms are
on the SPCC website.
Mesman recommended the up-
coming SPCC meeting in Wall,
February 26, at 10:00 a.m. in the
community building. “I’m kind of
surprised we are getting two EPA
personnel on the ground in South
Dakota,” said Mesman. He will
keep federation members apprised
of SPCC developments.
South Dakota Farm Bureau Fed-
eration Executive Director Wayne
Smith began his presentation by
asking what attendees liked about
ranching. He agreed that the cer-
tain amount of freedom experi-
enced by a landowner comes with a
responsibility, “We are providing a
product that everyone needs,” said
Smith. Some changes, if possible,
wished for by attendees ranged
from less government regulation to
more control over the weather.
Smith asked for input on possi-
ble changes to the Farm Bureau
Federation itself. “It’s hard for me,
even with Farm Bureau, to support
everything it does or stands for.
Your input makes it go,” said
Smith, “Your ideas make the or-

Some top federation concerns are
the animal care issues. “We have
very good animal abuse statutes
right now,” said Smith, who does
not believe the word “felony”
should be put on the law books. An-
other issue is trying to keep the as-
sessed valuation of production land
in check. The attempted sale of the
DM&E railroad by the Canadian
Pacific Railroad is a large concern
for local producers. If it is not sold
by July 1, then the state of South
Dakota may be forced to buy it. “It
would be way better to sell it to a
railroad,” said Smith, showing wor-
ries of private versus bureaucratic
attitudes of upkeep and efficiency.
Smith concluded with, “The heart
of Farm Bureau is the county or-

During its Monday, February 18
meeting, the Haakon School Dis-
trict Board of Education officially
approved the calendar for school
year 2013-2014. Classes are due to
begin August 21 and Christmas
break will be from 1:30 p.m. Fri-
day, December 20, to first bell Mon-
day, January 6. Homecoming is not
set yet because the football sched-
ule has not yet been made.
Tanya McIlravy addressed the
board, “I am back again, because I
feel there is support.” She is not in
favor of starting school before
Labor Day (September 2). Stated
reasons included family time and
vacations, the nice community
swimming pool, and athletic prac-
tices could be earlier in the day in-
stead of after classes in the heat of
the afternoon. She thought a later
starting date would be more mean-
ingful to the students.
Nancy Haigh stated that she
liked the calendar that was later
voted for by the board. She did not
like going on extra Fridays, as was
suggested by McIlravy’s offered cal-
endar. Haigh related that at least
some students did not like the idea
of classes on Fridays at all.
Superintendent Keven Morehart
said that the teachers, except for
three, preferred the first calendar
suggested by him. Three voiced
preference for the third suggested
calendar, which would have started
classes September 3.
Board member Mark Nelson
asked for when the calendar had to
be approved, maybe allowing for
more time to compare the sugges-
tions and more input from the pub-
lic. The rest of the board voted for
the first suggested calendar, with
Nelson voting nay. The proposed
calendars are displayed on the dis-
trict’s website.
In other business, maintenance
director and custodial supervisor
Mike Gebes has tendered his resig-
nation, affective July 1. The board
accepted the resignation. “He’s
done a great job here,” said More-
hart. The position will be adver-
tised in town and outside of the
An executive session was held
concerning personnel and negotia-
tions. No action was taken after the
School district wages for the
month of January totaled
$1,627.50 for an equivalent of 24
days of substitutes. For hourly
wages, a total of more than $28,764
was required for an equivalent of
2,659.47 hours.
Board member Anita Peterson
reported that the Associated School
Boards of South Dakota is tracking
bills in legislation and lobbying in
Pierre. One issue is protective trust
(worker compensation). She said
that their website is being redone,
and she praised their webinars.
“Basically, we should all get online
more often and see what is going
on,” said Peterson. This year the
ASBSD is working on math cus-
tomization for the common core
In his secondary principal’s re-
port, Mike Baer praised the one-act
play cast and crew at the state fes-
tival. Parent/teacher conferences
had a 90 percent turnout. Dakota
STEP testing for seventh, eighth
and 11th grade students will be
April 2-4. Ninth and 10th grade
students will have their own test-
ings, a type of precursor to the
American College Testing program,
but these will not be individualized
to the point of determining if a spe-
cific student may need pro-
grammed study halls next year.
All sports will have a potluck
awards time on May 9. It will be a
simple handing out of rewards,
without a rehash of the season by
the coaches. Baer believes even
this might take some time.
The National Honor Society in-
doctrination will be April 22. Baer
hopes it will be more of a dress-up
affair with more importance con-
nected to it.
In his superintendent’s report,
Morehart said that 215 kids partic-
ipated in the annual Philip AAU
Wrestling Tournament, February
18. He guessed that 500-600 people
attended total. “They all pitched in,
cleaned the bleachers, great effort,”
said Morehart. The elementary
parent/teacher conferences had 98
percent turn out. Deep Creek coun-
try student will be losing one stu-
dent because of a family moving
away, reducing the attendance
down to four students.
The city of Philip has invited
school board members to attend
the city’s board of equalization
meeting, Monday, March 18, at
4:00 p.m. in the commissioner’s
room. Schools do not pay property
taxes, but do benefit from them.
The next scheduled board of ed-
ucation meeting will be at 7:00
p.m., Monday, March 18, in room
A-1 of the Philip High School.
Haakon Board of Education
approves 2013-2014 calendar
Glenn Parsons and Slovek both
had closing comments. Parsons
suggested the local organization
work with the Philip Chamber of
Commerce to construct a public
restroom area in downtown Philip.
He is looking for feedback on the
idea of such a comfortable, visitor-
oriented public area. Slovek agreed
that the federation wants to put its
dues and funds to a good, local use.
In South Dakota, there is one
state bureau, two regions – West
River and East River, seven dis-
tricts and 44 organized counties
(some of which include more than
one county). The federation’s web-
site is www.sdfbf.org.

by Senator Jim Bradford
District 27
It’s hard to believe but week six
of the S.D. 2013 Legislature has
ended with 24 days out of 38 day
session completed. February 20
marks the cross-over day which is
the point in time where all bills
must be completed in their house of
origin and travel to the other leg-
islative body. We have very full
agendas both in committees and on
the floor as this deadline quickly
I serve on the Senate Health and
Judiciary Committees but I also
spent most of one morning this
week listening to the Senate Ap-
propriations Committee. They
were scheduled to hear a wide va-
riety of bills on school funding and
I’m always interested in that dis-
cussion. I thought I’d use this
week’s column to share some infor-
mation on this vital topic.
The good news for South Dakota
schools is that they continue to
grow. This school year, there were
1,700 more students than last year.
Next school year (2013-14) we are
projected to grow by another 1,600
students. The challenge that
growth imposes affects both local
school districts and state govern-
ment as we attempt to direct re-
sources towards our schools. Some
schools, especially in more remote
rural areas, would love to have this
“problem” as they are more likely
to see declining enrollment.
School funding is certainly my
top priority as a legislator. Unfor-
tunately, this important decision is
typically made towards the very
end of the session. We know that
schools are struggling to make up
for the budget cuts of past years.
You’ve heard many of the numbers
before. We are dead last in average
teacher salary. Perhaps even worse
news is that the gap behind #49
(North Dakota) continues to widen.
North Dakota’s average teacher
now makes close to $7,000 more
than the average South Dakota
teacher. Wyoming does even better
and in the western part of our
state, we have already seen some of
our best and brightest teachers go
there, whether they are new college
grads or experienced teachers.
Even the statistics gathered which
adjust for cost of living differences
still put South Dakota at the very
bottom when compared to our
neighbors. As more of our teaching
workforce nears retirement, how
much longer can we really afford to
continue with business as usual?
Any piece of legislation which re-
quires an appropriation of funds
must go through the Appropria-
tions Committee. Issues may first
be heard for testimony and policy
considerations in another commit-
tee, but eventually makes their
way to Appropriations when any
tax dollars are attached. In the
case of school funding, often these
bills go to the House or Senate Ed-
ucation Committees and then are
referred to Appropriations. The
day I attended this committee, Feb-
ruary 13, the Senate Appropria-
tions Committee listened to six dif-
ferent school funding bills. All bills
are being deferred to a later date as
Appropriators await the Revenue
Estimates which are scheduled to
be presented by the S.D. Depart-
ment of Revenue during the last
week of February. Day after day,
the appropriators hear requests for
money from the General Fund, and
must eventually make recommen-
dations to the House and Senate as
to where we place our priorities.
Every project in the state wants
money for a wide variety of proj-
ects. Will we put our schools first in
line or wait until the very end of
the line and give them the left-
overs? Let’s hope this session we
can start to make up for the big
cuts we’ve taken in the past and
have yet to make up, even in part.
I invite you to contact me with
your questions and concerns on
these topics or any of interest to
you. I may be reached at 605-685-
4241 or Sen.Bradford@state.sd.us.

Elizabeth May
Well another busy week! Due to
the snow storm Monday session
was cancelled and we met on Fri-
day for a make-up day.
HB1151 extended the general
immunity from liability for direc-
tors and officers of certain non-
profit fire and ambulance depart-
ments and to limit certain actions
for personal injury or death. This
bill will ensures our local voluntary
firemen and EMT providers will
not be held responsible for acci-
dents going to emergencies in pri-
vate vehicle.
HB1128 was brought to the floor
to allow home school students the
opportunity to participate in the
Opportunity Scholarship program.
After debate on the floor the bill did
not pass with a vote of 35 yeas and
35 nays. South Dakota non-govern-
ment funded schools save taxpay-
ers $128,985,528 with 16,639 stu-
Legislative Updates
dents enrolled in over 97 non gov-
ernment schools. The South
Dakota Department of Education
expenditures per average daily
member, 2011-2012 school year
was a statewide average cost per
student was $7,752 and this cost
does not include capital expendi-
tures and bond redemption. I voted
to pass HB1128 feeling strongly
that all students are part of South
Dakota and saying other wise is
HB1135 was a highly con-
tentious bill that caused a lot of de-
bate on the floor. It regulates ac-
cess to and use of non-meandered
waters on private property. S.D.
Wild Life Federation and the S.D.
Game Fish & Parks were highly
opposed to this bill. It is the result
of flooding in the northeast part of
the state in the past few years. We
heard testimony from land owners
that corn fields were being dam-
aged by sportsmen and concerns
about the safety of their self and
private property was in question. I
confer with the V Amendment of
the U.S. Constitution that reads,”
No person shall be deprived of life,
liberty, or property, without due
process of law; nor shall private
property be taken for public use,
without just compensation.” Had
the S.D. Wild Life Federation or
S.D. Game Fish & Parks asked for
permission to carry out hunting
and fishing on private property and
allowed compensation to the land
owner either through tax relief or
hunting fees I think this could of
been settled. The problem has been
on going for nine years with no ac-
tion. It passed the floor with a 37
yeas and 32 nays.
HB1089 an act to require
statewide livestock ownership in-
spection was brought to the com-
mittee by Rep. Dean Schrempp. He
stated his ongoing concern with the
lack of inspections that are being
conducted. Currently there is no
brand inspection East River. Last
year there were only 11 inspections
of livestock crossing the river and
eight inspections the year before.
S.D. Department of Agriculture,
National Cattlemen's Beef Associ-
ation, Farm Bureau and S.D. Live-
stock Markets all came out in oppo-
sition to this bill stating it was cost
prohibitive. After considerable de-
bate was heard it passed on to the
floor by a vote of seven yeas and six
nays. I feel strongly that state wide
brand inspection would help with
the on going problem of livestock
being transported across the river
without proper documentation of
ownership and curb livestock
rustling. I argued that agriculture
is South Dakota’s number one in-
dustry and we need to look at all
possible steps to protect the live-
stock producer.
HB1187 also was to provide al-
ternative brand inspection proce-
dures for certain rodeo livestock.
This bill was brought to the com-
mittee by Rep. Heinert. It would
put in place a permanent brand in-
spection for rodeo company’s that
are moving livestock to different
areas of the state on a regular
basis. It passed out of committee
with 13 yeas and zero nays.
This week we were entertained
with a banquet by the Independent
Community Bankers of South
Dakota Association. I have to say
that the information I came away
with was enlightening to say the
least. I want to leave you with
some facts that I’m sure many peo-
ple are not aware off. Thirty-nine
percent is the effective tax rate of
most South Dakota Banks, 2.32
percent is the effective tax rate of
Farm Credit Services in South
Dakota, 0.00% is the effective tax
rate of all S.D. Federal Credit
Unions, $89,386,262 is the total in-
come of Credit Union’s and Farm
Credit Services in 2011,
$21,735,593 is what the S.D. Gen-
eral Fund did not receive over the
last six years from not collecting
the six percent Bank Franchise
Tax from Credit Unions and Farm
Credit Services. As regulations
bears down on community banks
and small towns lose access to fi-
nancial services I have to wonder
why Congress continue’s to allow
expansion of tax exempt entities at
the expense of the taxpayers. As
these entities expand tax revenue
coming into the state general fund
will continue to decline which will
directly effect our schools, roads
and government services.
As always, you can contact me at
the House Chamber number 773-
3851. Leave a phone number and
I’ll call you back. The fax number
is 773-6806. If you send a fax, ad-

Bad apples ... by Del Bartels
One rotten apple spoils the whole barrel. For one thing, do apples
come in barrels anymore? I understand that sensationalism drives the
national media. The evening news barely, if at all, covers a peaceful
demonstration of 200 or more people. If that event had one idiot who
got arrested for disorderly conduct, then the group is labeled as a ri-
otous mob. A sports broadcaster can, by embellishing every foul and
stumble, make a great game sound far rougher than it was.
On the other side of the coin, people don’t care about, or don’t speak
up for, the 199 peaceful demonstrators, or the true sportsmanship dis-
played during 99 percent of the game. My glasses are not rose-colored
(mostly because I prefer blue), but I do tend to notice all the crisp, juicy
apples in the barrel, and ignore the soft, brown one.
I recently got into a discussion about Facebook. I accept that I have
to try to ignore the few abuses that happen on it. Who cares if someone
just got back on after taking a bathroom break? Yet, returning from
visiting your new grandchild, with three or four dozen photos, is great.
I cannot get excited about the challenges of Farmville or whatever, like
I am sure others cannot get excited about a Sicilian opening during a
chess tournament. Some people learned to count, add and calculate
percentages by playing blackjack, but it’s the few gamble-holics that
give cards a bad name. Most teenagers show tremendous courtesy and
maturity, yet why does society label them as delinquent, hot-rodding
partiers? If society as a whole really did abuse social programs, cheat
on their taxes, take illicit drugs, lie to their boss, cheat on their spouse,
ignore their old parents and young children, and despise their non-
WASP neighbors, then Americans would be as the news and soup op-
eras depict us. (Ask your parents what a WASP is.)
My only complaint that might stand up to scrutiny is that I wish peo-
ple would learn a little bit about the apple barrel before they reach in
feeling around for the bad apple. Don’t complain about “pink slime” as
you are eating a hot dog. Don’t protest for animal rights and vegetari-
anism as you are eating a fish sandwich and walking around in leather
sandals. Every anti-gun enthusiast should spend an hour on the firing
range, talk for an hour to convicted muggers and rapists, and talk to
insurance adjusters about auto/deer accidents. Every person who lives
in a metropolitan area should work for a month in Smalltown, and
country folks should live in a big city for a while. I should probably use
Facebook for awhile.
I cannot walk for a mile in everybody else’s’ shoes, but I can strive to
at least walk beside the other person for a few minutes. Some outlooks
will not change for me, and maybe shouldn’t. There is a saying that a
white glove stuck in the mud does not make the mud glovey. But, at
least I might be better able to determine that a bad apple is indeed not
the entire barrel. Maybe I’ll even put up with Facebook.

The Philip High School FFA officers, and the freshmen and sophomore FFA stu-
dents, helped in the operation of the animal nursery and attended the 2013
Black Hills Stock Show Angus Show, Monday, January 28. Philip FFA chapter of-
ficers ran the Black Hills animal nursery, with hundreds of visiters passing
through to look at the variety of animals. The freshman and sophomore FFA stu-
dents attended the 2013 Black Hills Stock Show Angus show and also investi-
gated the hundreds of educational booths set up in the civic center, learning
more about agriculture, how agriculture is run, and learning more and more on
how important agriculture is and how it benefits our world. From left are Avery

fungicide Seed treatments
for Spring Wheat
Fungicide seed treatments are
used when planting many agricul-
tural crops and are helpful in pro-
moting stand establishment and
seedling vigor. Seed treatments
also help preserve yield potential
and prevent quality losses in grain
by preventing certain seed and
soil-borne diseases.
There are many pathogens
found in the soil which cause
seedling diseases and contribute to
the root/crown rot complex in
wheat. The root/crown rot complex
can include one or more of the dis-
eases, Common Root Rot, Fusar-
ium Root Rot, Take-All, Rhizocto-
nia Root Rot, and Pythium Root
Rot. These pathogens are always
present in the soil at some level,
waiting to take advantage of slow
germination, slow early develop-
ment, and unfavorable environ-
ment for wheat seedlings. These
pathogens have similar symptoms
and can cause poor overall health
and vigor of the plant. These dis-
eases often result in thin, uneven
stands, spindly stalks, small
spikes, empty/white heads,
stunted plants, weak early growth,
yellowing of foliage, and reduced
yield and quality.
The primary recommendation
to avoid the effects of the
root/crown rot complex is a diverse
crop rotation which includes one or
more broadleaf crops. The proper
choice of fungicide seed treatments
can also help protect the young
seedlings and get them off to a
good start.
Loose Smut and Common Bunt
(also known as stinking smut) ap-
pear in some wheat fields every
year. These are two pathogens for
which proper fungicide seed treat-
ments are very effective. It is
strongly believed that Loose Smut
and Common Bunt could be virtu-
ally eliminated if all wheat produc-
ers used recommended seed treat-
In general, seed treatments: aid
in managing the biotic stresses,
are effective only days to weeks
(although new chemistry is prom-
ising longer periods of protection),
are used as the principal insurance
against pests, and help the seed
and seedlings make it to the stage
when they can make their own en-
ergy (get the seed up and out of the
Utilizing a seed treatment
builds the foundation for a healthy
plant. Healthy roots are the first
step to building the yield potential
you desire. Without that strong
base, your yield potential is lim-
ited from the start and all other in-
puts become less valuable.
Healthy seedling development pro-
motes good stands and greater
yield potential.
Seed treatment has been and
continues to be a very economic
and effective disease management
tool in South Dakota wheat pro-
duction. To see the complete list of

Remember mad cow disease? Mad
cow disease first appeared in the
United Kingdom (UK) in 1986, no
case had ever been diagnosed prior
to that. The peak number of cases
occurred in 1992 when the UK was
diagnosing more than 1,500 case a
week in cattle; overall more than
180,000 cases were diagnosed.
In 1995, a new type of human
brain disease named variant
Creutzfeldt – Jakob disease (vCJD)
emerged. This led to the hypothesis
that mad cow disease caused vCJD.
More than 150 cases of vCJD were
diagnosed in the UK over the course
of 10 years. If you do the math, that
is one case of vCJD per three million
servings of beef. The risk was very
low, but scary none the less.
The big question in all of this was
how did the cows develop mad cow
disease in the first place? The pre-
dominant theory was that a similar
disease in sheep, sheep scrapie, was
causing it. Almost all dead animals
in the UK were taken to a renderer
and boiled down, and then the ani-
mal protein was fed back to the live-
stock. In the 1960s and 1980s
changes were made to the rendering
process which in theory allowed the
disease agent to survive and be
passed on to cows.
Two doctors in the UK, Alan and
Nancy Colchester, challenged this
theory because, to them it did not
make sense for several reasons:
1. Sheep scrapie has existed in the
UK for 200 years.
2. Sheep remains have been fed to
cattle for 70 years.
3. Changes in the rendering
process did little to affect the
amount of scrapie agent in the feed.
4. Feeding scrapie infected sheep
brains to cattle had not produced
mad cows.
5. Protein analysis of sheep
scrapie and mad cow disease show
different profiles.
6. Injecting sheep scrapie and mad
cow disease into genetically modified
mice produced different brain le-
So, if the disease did not come
from sheep, where did it come from?
The Colchesters looked for other
prominent sources of animal protein.
They discovered that during the
1960s and 1970s the UK imported
hundreds of thousands of tons of
whole and crushed bones and animal
protein from India.
Here is where the story gets
creepy, the animal protein coming
out of India tested positive for
human remains.
The two doctors investigated the
Indian culture and discovered that
Hindus believe it is essential for
their remains after death to be dis-
posed of in a river, preferably the
Ganges. An important local trade for
peasants is collection of bones and
carcasses for the manufacturing of
meat and bone meal. This includes
the collection of human cadavers. In
2004, a group of volunteers cam-
paigning to reduce river pollution re-
trieved 60 human corpses in two
days from a 10 km stretch of the
Ganges. that is one corpse every
10th of a mile for six miles!
Further investigation showed that
India has an incidence of 150 natu-
rally occurring human CJD cases
per year. Since India is 80 percent
Hindu that means 120 CJD cadav-
ers end up in the river annually. The
Colchesters estimated that a single
human cadaver could potentially in-
fect between 150 and 300 cattle.
Consequently, the Colchesteres have
proposed a theory that mad cow dis-
ease came from infected human re-
mains imported from India winding
up in animal protein supplement.
Tests will need to be done to prove
or disprove this theory. The steps
taken to prevent any more mad cow
disease have proven successful, but
for the wrong reason. We stopped
feeding animal protein to all live-
stock because we thought the source
was rendered sheep and cattle when
it may actually have been human re-
mains fed to cattle and then cattle
fed back to humans.
I would like to propose another the-
ory. Cattle and humans weren’t the
only species affected by mad cow dis-
ease. Cats got it, too. Fifty to 75 cats
were diagnosed with mad cow dis-
ease during the outbreak. Were the
cats eating beef or was the same
source of protein used in the produc-
tion of pet food?
What’s scary is that humans eat
pet food. Toddlers will readily sit
down at the dog dish when no one is
looking. Also, pet food contains a lot
of salt. This is not because pets like
salt, but because people like salt. Pet
food companies know that pet
owner’s sometimes taste their pet’s
food to see if it is any good, therefore
salt is added to please the owners.
The pets couldn’t care less.
So, my theory is that another
source of vCJD could in fact be direct
human consumption of human ca-
davers via pet food. I know, GROSS!
Could this possibly explain how five
vegetarians acquired vCJD?
The Center for Disease Control ac-
tually has a web page for zombie
apocalypse preparedness. I think
they should be looking into this.

James D. Stangle DVM
It has been nearly seven years
since Kenneth has been gone and it
has been a never ending job of sort-
ing out things to keep or throw
away. If the kids don’t want it or
know someone else who wants it, it
has to go. There are things here
from Kenneth’s folks that have no
value or of importance to keep.
Then you run into those things
that you did not even know existed.
Some of it goes back to 1906, a lot
of years of accumulation. Well, any-
way, I am getting there, I think. In
reading some of Kenneth’s old di-
aries, that he wrote every day, he
listed every piece of machinery that
was ever bought and when they
were overhauled, when the oil was
changed in each one, what he
payed for them, what they were
sold for when traded in, how many
bushels of grain was planted and in
which strip, and acre of ground.
When his granddaughters were
born, he usually had something to
say about each of them and what
they were doing every day. As I
was reading those diaries the other
day, he wrote about Carla Eide get-
ting her first car to drive to high
school. He said that she came down
to talk to him about it and was wor-
ried that she might upset it on the
Carstensen curve, as she had heard
how many others had done just
that. She did just fine and never
upset on that curve, but in later
years she upset the blazer at the
foot of the Walker hill. He had that
documented also.
Kenneth would tell each time the
girls came and brought him cake or
cookies and called them care pack-
ages. Which they did often through
the years. After they were grown,
they would bring him a gift and he
would always list it in his diary as
a care package.
I thought this item from his
diary may be of some interest to
our readers: Valentine’s Day 1989,
snowed one inch and was 16˚.
Carla and Christa spent the night
with us as Marvin and Vicki went
to the hills snowmobiling with the
Morrisons. We got the first calf
February 16. March 2, 1989, we got
three inches of snow. March 4, it
was 10˚ below zero and 10 inches of
snow. On February 14, 1990,
cloudy and snow, about eight de-
grees above zero and on February
26, 1990, the wind blew hard and
was moving the soil, otherwise
1990 was a good year, but I had to
pump a lot of water.
February 15, 1993, six inches of
snow on the ground, only 10˚ above
zero. February 16, 1993, 10˚ below
zero. February 4, 1993, Governor
Mickelson went down in his plane
and the same day was the Waco,
Texas, standoff. Set fire to the
building and a lot of lives were lost.
In 1993, we got three cuttings of
alfalfa. The only year I can remem-
ber we ever did this.
March 4, 1994, melting snow and
the dams are all running out the
spillways, 60˚ above zero. I lost a
good friend and brother-in-law, Bill
I was reading where we drove to
Whitewood to the dances at the
Wagon Wheel Hall. It was upstairs
and about 10 or 12 couples would
go and take their kids along. Mar-
vin Eide and Orrin Carstensen
learned to dance some of the older
dance steps there. It would be the
wee hours of the morning when we
got home. Now when people are out
all night, I wonder why they do
such things. You don’t suppose
they could have learned it from
their parents do you?
Bill Gottsleben has been very
busy this week. He is lambing and
calving his heifers out.
Wayne Schultz, who lives in the
old Gottsleben house, has been
gone to California to spend some
time with his brother, who lives
near Bakersfield, Calif.
I have a new great-nephew.
Tucker and Jesse Smith have a
new baby boy. His name is Myer
Allen and his little brother, Logan,
thinks he is pretty nice and I won-
der if he will want to give his mom
much help with the baby. This
makes four grandchildren for Keith
and Debbie, two girls and two boys.
I will not give any details about the
baby as they will have a picture
and details later in the paper.
In January, Mike and Gretchen
Rausch moved their daughter,
Annie Jo, and her family to Wasta.
They have bought a house about
three blocks from Mike and
Gretchen, so they have their grand-
children closer to enjoy now. Annie
Jo has three boys. She has been
home on maternity leave since the
baby was born, but returned to
work Monday at the Wall Drug
Gretchen said she was not work-
ing at Wall Drug when they had
the basement flooded from a bro-
ken water main, but said there was
about four feet of water in the base-
ment and the kitchen is still closed
due to equipment getting damaged.
They are having a professional
crew come in to help clean up the
mess and get it all back together.
They want to get it done as soon as
possible as tourist season will soon
be here.
Friday, Donna Newman and Di-
anne Parsons went to Rapid City
and brought Shayla (Parsons) De-
laney’s two boys home with them to
spend some time with their grand-
parents. Their dad, Jeremy, came
down and got them Sunday.
Saturday, Peggy Staben, Mike
and Marcia West and Donna New-
man all attended the open house
for Jerry Stilwell in Kadoka.
Warren and Shirley Sweezy
came to Donna Newman’s Satur-
day and had dinner with her. Mike
and Debbie Clements were also out
for dinner and enjoyed visiting
with them. Sunday, February 17,
Donna enjoyed dinner with Glenn
Parsons prior to going to church.
Marvin and Vicki Eide drove
Vicki’s mom, Rita Ramsey, Phyllis
Ramsey, and Mary Eide to Rapid
City to watch Kiley Sieler play in a
basketball tournament. Doug Ram-
sey rode up to Rapid City with his
son, Chad, as Paulette was coach-
ing a basketball team up there for
the tournament. Some went to
watch both teams play. Christa,
Brayden and Aven Fitch also at-
tended to watch Kiley play. Kiley’s
team won their first game 14 to 8
and lost the second game to Philip’s
team 14 to 19, which was coached
by RaeAnn Snyder. We all re-
turned home and Doug rode back
home with us, as did Carla and
Taegan. Kiley stayed in Rapid City
with her teammates. Marvin,
Vicki, Carla and Taegan returned
to Rapid City at 7:00 a.m. Sunday
morning for Kiley’s 9:00 a.m. game.
Kiley’s team won this game, which
I think got them second place in
the tournament. Philip came home
with first place. I was bushed and
just stayed home to rest. I did go
into Philip Sunday to breakfast at
the senior citizen center.
I enjoyed visiting with Martin
and Vera Nelson, Dr. Dave Hol-
man, D.J. Rush and family, Bob
McDaniel, Emily Kroetch, Chuck
and Kay Kroetch, and Don Carley.
Some were talking about trips they
had been on and others were talk-
ing about their lives prior to mov-
ing to Philip. I enjoyed listening to
the conversations, as it is nice to
get to know people better. You
learn what makes them tick and to
know their life was not always a
bed of roses and maybe it still isn’t.
Boyd Waara came in alone and
said that Jeannie was home nurs-
ing a bad cold. John and Arnis
Knutson were just arriving as I
was leaving. You need to just sit
down and listen to others and you
will learn that the world has
treated you pretty good.
I made an appointment to meet
with Bob McDaniel to get my in-
come tax done. I usually had to go
to Rapid City, but as I don’t do the
farm income anymore, there is no
need to go there. Marvin takes care
of all the farm taxes now.
The Philip AAU wrestlers were
in Kadoka for a tournament Sun-
day, February 17, and were also in
another one in Philip, February 18,
President’s Day. I attended the
tournament in Philip. Keagan and
Jensen placed first in Kadoka and
Colby placed second. It is nice
when we are unable to attend, that
Christa texts us to let us know how
the boys are doing.
I enjoyed visiting with Jan Wine-
gar at the Rapid City basketball
games. Jan and Bill’s granddaugh-
ter was also playing ball. Jan told
me that she was retiring from her
job in July of this year. I asked her
what she planned on doing then?
She said that she planned to do a
lot of volunteer work for her
church. She said that will keep her
pretty busy.
You have to be careful on our
roads, especially on the curves, as
it has been so dry and it is hard to
keep the washboard out on them.
The road graders are not able to get
decent dirt to fill them in with.
Then of course, at night you have
to watch out for the black cattle
that have crawled out to nip at the
grass in the road ditches. They are
looking for grass, as the pastures
are all grazed off so close. The cat-
tle are hard to see after dark. Peo-
ple are worried about seeing deer,
but they are easier to see than a
black critter.
John and Arnis Knutson stayed
home and worked on Valentine’s
Day, then went to Rapid City Feb-
ruary 15 where they purchased
some new furniture. They also met
Arnis’s sister, Gayle and Ralph
Matz for supper. (Arnis said that

At Somerset Court February 9,
we had quilting with Sandy. Sandy
had some suggestions for some
very pretty quilt designs for the up-
coming Somerset Court auction in
June. Annette, Vivian, and Eileen
sewed and Irene Cox cut blocks.
Addie arranged fabrics. Sandy
ironed and laid out blocks and
brought brownies and ice water.
Charlie and Marcella and John
stopped in for sociability. There
was also a table of whist being
played at the same time. M.R.
Hansen came for scrabble and we

reprint of a great photo of Jean
Burns and me at the Grindstone

gave me an amaryllis kit. Thank
you, M.R. I still have that shirt and

tions up to $20,000. Each contribu-
tor will receive a beautifully etched
glass, stemware or tumbler, as a
token of appreciation. M.R.’s sister,
Carol, and her husband have con-
tributed to the endowment fund.
The fund would be used for the
benefit of SDSM&T. The names of
the donors will be included on a

called Candlemas, and is exactly 40
days after Christmas Eve, or Feb-
ruary 2.
Looking back at February 6
when I included some Grindstone
news from 1936. I forgot who
“Hump” was. Was he Prosper
Humbert. (Prosper was usually
know as “Pros.”)
Marilyn Butts contributed an in-
teresting article from a recent Ar-
mour newspaper. It is about the
stained glass windows in the South
Dakota State Capitol at Pierre.
You can read it in the Somerset
Court scrapbook on the coffee table
by the fireplace.
Sunday, February 10, 2013, at
Somerset Court, we had a little
snow and a lot of wind. It was a
strong front, and it gave me aches
and pains. I heard that I-90 was
closed from Wyoming to Spearfish
and from Wall to I-29 at Sioux
Falls. We had church with Rev.
Richardson and he said the streets
are treacherous and we should stay
in if possible. Attending services
were Floy, Marilyn B., Marge S.,
Marilyn O., Virginia Grey, Don S.,
Lucille H., Eileen T., Annette H.,
and Vivian Hansen. Jack Humke
played the piano and we sang
“There Shall Be Showers of Bless-
ings,” “I Would Be True,” “Love Di-
vine, All Love Excelling,” and
Great Is Thy Faithfulness.”
Thanks, Rev. Richardson and Jack
Humke. Our minister’s theme was
miracles. He said that 49 miracles
are mentioned in the Old Testa-
ment and 55 in the New Testa-
ment. Sometimes in the Old Testa-
ment, God would show his power to
let people know that He was God.
Jesus always gave God the credit
for His miracles. We have the mir-
acle of the gift of life. The spark of
life is a bit of God’s power. We can
talk to God. Which is talking to
ourselves and asking if we are
doing our best in following our in-
structions to the best of our ability.
Our instructions are to love one an-
other and obey the 10 command-
ments. We can ask for favors, and
God will say “Yes,” “No,” or “Not
right now.”
After church we played a lot of
whist with Ina, Jim and Eleanor,
and Irene A., and quiddler with
Irene C., Mary Lou, Addie and Vi-
vian. M.R. came for scrabble and
we found a new word we had never
heard of: weber, a unit of magnetic
flux. M.R. had encountered it in a
physics class. We opened the jar of
pickles that Melissa had made and
brought and we agreed that they
were fine dill pickles. Thanks,
Melissa and Breck. We only like
dills with hamburgers, so we will
have them ready. The amaryllis
that Wayne and Gwynn gave me
before Christmas has sent up a
new stalk, which grows visibly day
by day. February 10 it was 13
inches tall. I will keep you posted.
By evening, the weather front
was past and I felt a lot better.
February 12, Tuesday, Mardi
Gras! (Remember that Mardi Gras
monkey business, last year we had
a cake and in the cake was a baby
doll about an inch and a half long,
Whoever got the slice with the baby
in it got to be king or queen of the
Mardi Gras, with a crown and all.)
Monday at crafts with Amy, we
made Mardi Gras masks. Shawn
and Sandy were there to help. We
had scratch-off forms and we could
design our own. Some very attrac-
tive masks were created. We took
photos. Floy, Eileen, Marcella,
Marilyn O., Marilyn B., Marge Self,
Fred, Mildred Young and her
helper, Kay, Mary Lou and Vivian
made masks. Thank you to Amy
Voles, who is a volunteer. Besides
crafts, and sometimes exercises,
she puts out new word search puz-
zles and checks our completed puz-
zles, and give us Somerset bucks.
The Somerset Court movie was
the first half of the old favorite,
“Gone With the Wind.” A bigger
crowd than usual attended the
movie. It is just the way I remem-
bered it from long ago. Powerful
and with many vivid scenes such as
the wartime destruction, and the
injured soldiers. It is a movie that
sticks in your mind. We hope to see
the other half Monday, February
My son, David K. Hansen, Ft.
Pierre, had a bit of good luck last
week. He had been trenching and
laying pipe in the far north end of
the Triple U Buffalo Ranch north of
Pierre. He had laid some 6,000 feet
and just finished, loaded out, be-
fore the snowstorm hit. (And he
only works half days, if you con-
sider that 12 hours is half a 24
hour day!)
My niece, Wanda, and husband
Ed Artz, Humboldt, sent a nice
package, which came today. There
was a cute valentine, photos of
Sheridan and children and Emily
Hansen, a crossword puzzle book,
and a lovely journal book to write
in. Thank you, Wanda and Ed. I
phoned to say thank you, and we
visited for a while. Wanda has been
busy sewing a baby blanket for a
Meyer cousin’s new great-grand-
baby and crocheting a cap and mit-
tens. Wanda knitted a stocking cap
and plans to crochet mittens to
In the Somerset Court dining
room is a poster reminding us to
vote for our favorite St. Valentine’s
king and queen. They do not have
to be a married couple.
Tuesday, February 12, 2013, at
Somerset Court we had the activity
of goofy golf. Thank you to Sandy
and Susan for picking up balls and
keeping score. Those playing were
Fred, Marge, S., Irene McK., Floy,
Virginia, Denise, Mildred Y., and
Kay, Marilyn B., Eileen, Marcella,
Myrna, and Vivian. Mildred won
one game and Vivian the other. We
received generous Somerset Bucks
for playing and for winning.
Somerset Court resident Lois
Schulz’ son, Steve, visited her at
lunch February 12.
The chefs at Somerset Court
went all out to give us a cajun
luncheon for Mardi Gras. They had
shrimp creole, crab cakes, red
beans with rice, okra, and corn on
the cob.
Tuesday bingo winners were
Mary K., Fred, Viv twice, Blanche
twice, Agnes and Florabelle. Di-
rectly after bingo we had the an-
nual Somerset Court Mardi Gras
party. Our chef, P.J., made a beau-
tifully decorated cake, (We took
photos.) and in the cake was a one
inch plastic baby doll. Florabelle
Powell was the Somerset Court res-
ident who found the “baby” in her
piece of cake, so she won the title of
queen of the Mardi Gras, and a big
colorful sun hat and a supersized
necklace of bright beads. All the
residents were provided with
masks and shiny beads, so it was a
festive occasion.
The new Somerset Court resi-
dent in apartment 329 is Evalynn
McHenry. She had been from
Wessington Springs.
The Rapid City Journal for Feb-
ruary 11 has a photo of Jamie
Hagan, who used to be Somerset
Court’s head chef. Jamie now
works at Cornerstone Rescue Mis-
sion. Conerstone has recently up-
graded their kitchen facilities.
Thank you to my daughter, Vin-
nie Hansen, Santa Cruz, Calif.,
who sent a pretty valentine. She
had won $50 in a Santa Cruz read-
ing contest, two readings, and to be
published on their website. They
are reading Steinbeck and Vinnie
feels that Steinbeck is better suited
to a mature readership than to
high school age group.
Thursday, February 14, happy
Valentine’s Day. Deliver a few lov-
ing greetings in person. During last
week, I received several pretty
valentines. One from my daughter,
Carol, one from daughter Vinnie. A
birthday card from Sharon Coyle,
Philip, including her family Christ-
mas letter and photos. Thank you,
Sharon. It was good to see all your
wonderful kids and grandkids.
When Rocky and Chris lived at
Hansen Court, their kids came over
and we made their mark on the
wall of the front porch where all my
kids and grandkids have their
heights measured.
At Somerset Court on February
14, we were scheduled to have ex-
ercises, Wii bowling, cards, Joyful
Guys and Gals, social, Mass, and
resident’s special Somerset Court
St. Valentine’s dinner. We were to
vote on our favorite Valentine king
and queen.
My son, Wayne, who spends the
winter in Rancho Palos Verdes,
Calif., came to Rapid City for a
week on business. His plane was
delayed on February 12, and he
was rerouted through Denver,
where he spent a tiresome time. He
arrived in Rapid City late in the
evening, so he went directly to his
house in west Rapid City. He came
to Somerset Court on the 13th for
lunch, and then at supper, Wayne,
M.R. and Barbara came over.
The family of Bill Lutz had a get-
together in the activity garden at
Somerset Court on the evening of
February 13.
February 13, at Somerset Court
we played a lot of whist and quid-
dler. Marge Self, Marilyn Butts,
Sandy, and maybe others, had a
good game of pool.
Here is a couple weeks from Pa’s
(Rolla Palmer’s) 1911 journal. Feb-
ruary 8, 1911. Took children to
school. Went to Grindstone. Pfeif-
fer went with me. The 9th. Took
the children to school. Sorted pota-
toes. Phil (Doughty) and Eby came
and got five bushels. Effie and I
went down to Jazek’s to spend the
evening. February 10. Took the
children to school. Husked corn.
Effie went to Grindstone. Very fine
weather all this week. February 11.
Went to the dance over to Pleasant
View. (Where was Pleasant View?)
February 12. Sunday, slept all day.
White Stockings found a calf.
Febraury 13. Went to Deep Creek,
got a load of lumber from Phil
Doughty and bought his wagon.
February 14. Phil fetched the
wagon over. I started to build addi-
tion to the house.
1911 was a dreadfully dry year
in western South Dakota. That
year my parents spent the month
of September visiting relatives in
eastern South Dakota, around Het-
land and Badger. Then they went
to Brinnon, Wash., and rented a lit-
tle house for the winter, near my
mother’s mother and stepfather,
and Pa’s cousin, John Palmer.
On St. Valentine’s Day, at Som-
erset Court, we had entertainment
of the Joyful Guys and Gals from
Canyon Lake Senior Citizen Cen-
ter. There is a big group of them
and we always enjoy them very
much. They looked sharp dressed
in white shirts, blue vests, red
necklaces or red bow ties. Thank
you for coming to sing for us. Their
songs were selected starting on a
“love” theme: “I Want a Girl Just
Like the Girl Who Married Dear
Old Dad,” “Ain’t She Sweet?” “Let
Me Call You Sweetheart,” “True
Love,” “Love and Marriage.” Then
the theme turned to U.S. History
with “Yankee Doodle,” “You’re a
Grand Old Flag,” “I’ll Fly Away,”
“America the Beautiful,” “Faith of
Our Fathers,” “Let There Be Peace
on Earth and Let It Begin With
Me.” Thanks to our activity direc-
tors for the social hour after the
music, with refreshments of choco-
late brownies with coconut frost-
ing. We also elected our 2013 St.
Valentine’s Day king and queen,
Charlie and Joanne Hathaway,
who received crowns, our warm
wishes, and gifts of big cuddly
teddy bears and boxes of choco-
lates. The St. Valentine’s Day din-
ner (evening meal) at decorated ta-
bles, treated us to New York strip
Paul Lupkes, whose wife, Gladys
sings with the group, was in the
audience. He has spoken at our
non-denominational church meet-
You remember when Carol and
Al Vogan were here, we went to
Wall Drug? Well that artist we
met, Mary Jo Van Dell, Stillwater,
Minn., wrote me a letter on a piece
of antique paper. My sons, Wayne
and M.R., and M.R.’s wife, Bar-
bara, who were here visiting, ad-
mired Mary Jo’s beautiful hand-
writing. I shall treasure that letter.
Mary Jo said she enjoyed Wall
Drug and especially their fine col-
lection of art work. She was
pleased to see a painting done by a
friend of hers, Jack Roberts. She
would like to hear more about
South Dakota lore.
Is anyone missing an almost new
Philip, S.D., horizons shopping
bag? One was found on third floor
here at Somerset Court and since I
am frm Philip, it was given to me.
Friday, February 15, at Somer-
set Court, we had fun with the ac-
tivity of wheel of fortune. Thank
you to Susan and Sandy for writing
up the puzzles and for passing the
spinner and keeping track. Some of
the puzzles were quite entertain-
Somerset Court resident, Pat
Staley, had a visit Friday, Febru-
ary 15, fromher sister, Joan Craig,
My daughter, Vinnie, sent me a
newspaper clipping from the San
Francisco Chronicle and
SFGATE.com about the number of
centenarians growing in the
United States. It contains the story
of 100-year-old Molly Greenberg,
Oakland, Calif. She lives in an as-
sisted living facility there. She says
besides good genes, that longevity
is partly due to her rules: Don’t
smoke, don’t overeat, and don’t
drink too much. She joins three ex-
ercise classes each week, she reads
books and does paintings. She
doesn’t care for computer. She
prefers personal contact.

Greetings from cold, windy, snow
and ice covered Salem, S.D. I am
visiting our daughter, Jennifer,
having fun doing some projects at
her home. Her husband, Ross, is at-
tending meetings in Washington,
D.C., this week, so us "girls" are
canning some meat and doing some
painting and enjoying our time to-
gether. So if this news seems a lit-
tle rushed and disjointed, it proba-
bly is. I'm hurrying to get back to
fun with Jen!
I think it is also cold on Robbs
Flat – I'll be back home tomorrow,
hopefully ahead of the snow that is
forecast for the state. After a gor-
geous, warm weekend, Mother Na-
ture is letting us know that winter
isn't over yet. My garden is grow-
ing, though! By garden, I mean my
romaine lettuce – the one where I
stuck the base of the romaine head
in some water after using the let-
tuce. It is growing, and I have used
several lettuce leaves on sand-
wiches. However, it doesn't appear
that it is going to produce enough
lettuce for Randy and I to have a
salad. Jennifer has a lettuce gar-
den growing on her window sill
above her sink – four romaine
heads, growing pretty fast and
adding a nice, springy touch to the
kitchen. It is amazing how a little
shot of green can brighten your
A couple of weeks ago, the beau-
tiful weather gave me the opportu-
nity to hang sheets on the line and
wash a few windows. The sheets
were so crisp and fresh, and the
windows were much improved.
Those few days of nice weather re-
ally help make the winter seem a
little shorter. I guess we'll deal
with the snow and cold, because we
know spring is another day closer.
I haven't started planning my veg-
etable garden, but some of my
friends have ordered their specialty
seeds and are getting ready to start
planting. Bunky Boger called from
Florida the other day, and he
talked about all the wonderful,
fresh produce they were enjoying.
It made me even more ready for
But now on to the news so I can
get back to visiting with our daugh-
Dick and Gene Hudson are get-
ting rested up from their recent
trip. Gene taught at Cheyenne
School for her daughter, Connie
Johnson, Wednesday and Thurs-
day of last week, because Connie
had the stomach flu that has been
going around. Dick was busy doing
chores while his son-in-law, Jon,
was gone to Wheaton, Minn. Gene
said she is continuing to work on
sorting and labeling photos, which
is definitely a wintertime project.
Billy and Arlyne Markwed were
in town Wednesday to do their
taxes. While in Pierre, they also
visited with Aunt Alice Jeitz. Sat-
urday evening, Duane and Lola
Roseth were supper guests at the
Markwed home. Sunday, Arlyne
and great-grandson Kyler attended
church while the rest of the crew
was doing some freeze branding.
As I mentioned earlier, Jon
Johnson spent part of the week vis-
iting friends and relatives in Min-
nesota, and Connie spent part of
the week dealing with the flu. Evi-

upon divorce (scandalous for the
time) married William P. Fitzger-
ald. Dorothy and Bill were married
for 57 years at the time of his pass-
ing in 2005. Much of their married
life was spent in Los Angeles,
Calif., where Dorothy was active in

of the Eastern Star, and where she
loved to entertain visiting family
and friends. They also resided in
New York City, Boston, and
Philadelphia; Meridian, Jackson,

Port Orchard, Wash.
Dorothy is survived by her two
children, Mark, San Diego, Calif.,
and Tara Urich (Andrew), Tulsa,
Okla.; five grandchildren, Haley
Parpart (Brandon) and Jarrett
Fitzgerald, and Anson, Truman
and Theodore Urich; one great-
granddaughter, Elsie Parpart; two
nieces, Patricia Carr and Judith
Gittings; one nephew, Marshall
Carr; and numerous cousins,
great-nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by
her parents and six siblings, Mil-
lard, Maury, Bill, Harry, Helen
Medley and Inez Simmonds; and
one nephew, Tom Carr.
Dorothy Mae has several special
places where her remains will be
sprinkled: Puget Sound, Wash.,

phia, Pa.

Hans E. Hanson________________________________
Hans E. Hanson, age 91 of
Philip, S.D., died Friday, February
15, 2013, at the Philip Nursing
Hans E. Hanson was born No-
vember 17, 1921, in Mt. Vernon,
the son of Martin and Lizzie Han-
son. He grew up on a farm near
Mt. Vernon and attended rural
schools, prior to graduating from
Mt. Vernon High School in 1939.
Hans was united in marriage to
Velma P. Lorang on June 8, 1941,
in Las Vegas, Nev. They made
their home in Burbank, Calif.,
where their first child, Sharon,
was born. Later, Hans entered the
U. S. Army and served in the Pa-
cific during World War II. During
that period, Velma and Sharon
moved back to Mt. Vernon and
lived with Hans’ mother until his
discharge from the Army. In 1946,
the family moved to Madison
where a son, Michael, was born.
Later, they moved to Mitchell, and
Hans operated a Standard Oil
bulk agency.
In October 1950, the family
moved to Philip. Subsequently, a
third child, Steven, was born in
Kadoka. In 1953, Hans and Velma
purchased the Ned Ronning City
Meat Market and Locker Plant
and, in 1960, they built and oper-
ated Hanson’s Super Valu until
their retirement in 1986.
Throughout his life in Philip,
Hans was a leading businessman
and active promoter of the Philip
community. Among Hans’ many
contributions were his service as
both president of the Haakon
School Board and Chamber of
Commerce. He also was famous for
organizing large community-based
pit barbeques. Hans was proud of
having played for the Mitchell
Kernels, a semi-pro baseball team,
and most of all for being a military
veteran. Most recently, he played
a founding leadership role in the
establishment of the Philip Vet-
eran’s Living Memorial. Second

In a rural state like South
Dakota where access to specialized
medical care can be hours away,
residents depend on critical access
hospitals to help meet their health
care needs.
However, an increasing number
of rural hospitals are finding it dif-
ficult to recruit physicians to these
under served areas of the country.
For small hospitals with only a few
physicians, current federal laws
and regulations require regular on-
call shifts that prevent a physician
from leaving town. This is a
lifestyle that many younger doctors
are not interested in pursuing
when urban settings can offer more
flexible career options.
Federal regulations for some
rural hospitals currently require a
physician to be on-call and able to
arrive to the emergency depart-
ment within 30 minutes, even if an
associate provider, such as a nurse
practitioner or physician assistant,
is already covering the emergency
department. For physicians in
small hospitals who see patients all
day and then must be on call at
night, this creates a “24/7” work en-
vironment that can be unattractive
to physicians and unnecessarily
drives up the costs of health care.
However, by utilizing technology
that is already available in hospi-
tals across South Dakota and the
country, there is a solution that
both improves emergency care and
creates a work environment that
can make it easier to recruit physi-
cians to rural areas.
I recently introduced the
Strengthening Rural Access to
Emergency Services Act that, if
passed, would allow eligible hospi-
tals in rural and medically under-
served areas to use interactive tele-
health programs that can connect
at any hour of the day to a board
certified emergency physician to
satisfy the federal emergency room
staffing requirements. This use of
emergency telehealth technology in
this capacity would be permitted
when an associate provider, such
as a physician assistant or nurse
practitioner, is already on site at
the rural emergency room.
Often, small rural hospitals are
not prepared to deal with complex
patients and will sometimes need
to transfer patients to larger, spe-
cialized hospitals. Immediate ac-
cess to a physician that specializes
in emergency medicine via tele-
health can help the rural hospital
determine whether a transfer is
necessary. This ensures that pre-
cious time is not lost waiting for
the on-call physician to arrive. It
also benefits the hospital ensuring
that, when appropriate, the patient
can remain at their local hospital to
receive care. This allows the small
rural hospital to be reimbursed for
services, making it easier for these
safety-net hospitals to keep their
doors open.
As a member of the Senate Rural
Health Caucus, I understand the
importance of access to fast, reli-
able emergency medicine in rural
hospitals and will continue to sup-
port initiatives, such as this, that
will strengthen our rural health
care infrastructure.

Our South Dakota weather con-
tinues to be uncertain. It sounds
like we may get some winter
weather later this week. But, you
never know for sure, until it gets
here. What is predicted is not al-
ways what happens. The one thing
that is a constant, we do need mois-
ture. Parts of South Dakota have
gotten some good snows. But, in
our area that is not the case. For
anybody who is, or has been, a
farmer or rancher, the importance
of moisture is a given. Seeing those
green pastures and the golden ripe
wheat swaying in the breeze is an
awesome sight. While sitting at the
computer this morning, I looked
out the window and there was a
rabbit looking back at me. We live
in a split level home, the office is in
the lower level, and the windows
are ground level, giving you a good
view of the outdoors. When Jerry
and I came home last night there
were five or six deer in our yard.
We gave the car horn a honk and
off they went. They leave their call-
ing card and make an awful mess
of the yard. I need to get out there
with my rake and shovel and do
some major cleaning of the yard.
The Hunt families have all re-
turned to their homes, but, for
Barry, who is staying for a while
longer. Heading back to Battle
Mountain, Nev., Gordon and
Cherly Hunt hit black ice, taking
three to three-and-half hours to
drive from Gillette, Wyo., to
Casper, Wyo. While on the road,
they got a call on their cell phone
that her mother, Elinor McGrath,
had passed away. Her dad, Howard
McGrath, passed away in Novem-
ber or December. We wish to ex-
press our sympathies to Cherly and
her family.
It was good to read in Marsha
Sumpter’s local news column that
she and her husband, Bill, are back
home in Kadoka after Bill had
spent a number of days in the
Rochester hospital. Their journey
has taken them to a number of hos-
pitals in the last few years. As, I
read her column, I can’t help but
think, “Though their journey has
not be the easiest of late, they con-
tinue to handle it in a positive
way.” Glad you are back home Bill.
We wish you continued healing.
As many of you know, due to a
heart attack, David Hand spent a
number of days in the Rapid City
hospital recently. After having two
stents put in, he was feeling much
better and able to go home.
Wednesday night he began to have
some breathing problems, so was
taken to the Philip hospital and
found to have pneumonia. In talk-
ing with Michelle Hand, she said
he was doing much better and is
hoping to be home in a day or two.
Get well wishes, David.
Alice (Donovan) Venner, Pierre,
is not doing well. Her daughter, Mi-
caela, does such a good job of keep-
ing folks informed on the Caring
Bridge website. Family has noticed
some marked changes in Alice’s
health and awareness over the last
week, or so. She has days she is ex-
hausted and confused and sleeping
12-18 hours. And then, other days
she may participate in the conver-
sation and eating a bit. They feel
they are coming to the stage in her
journey the doctor predicted would
come, shortly after Alice was told of
the cancer. Family is thankful for
the nine months they have been
given, a time of family sharing, of
laughter, some tears, and memo-
ries of growing up in a large family.
They take it a day at a time, thank-
ful for each day they have, a time
of preparing. Alice’s love for life
was so very evident in the way she
lived her life. Our prayers continue
to be with Alice, her husband,
Larry, and their families.
Shorty and Maxine Jones re-
cently attended an event at the
Heritage Center in Pierre where a
coordinator of a partnership with
the Smithsonian Institute spoke
about the interest of that institu-
tion in South Dakota, especially of
the fossils in the Badlands and
other areas of our state. That will
add even more interest to a truly
excellent museum.
The event was also to welcome
the legislative session to Pierre,
and during the reception, we were
able to visit with several new legis-
lators, including Gary Cammack
and Elizabeth May, who represents
our district. Some may remember
John and Mary Lou Lee who lived
in Midland for a year while he was
teaching school. The ladies are sis-
ters. They grew up on the Marti
family ranch near Mud Butte. Liz
has a good understanding of both
farming/ranching, and business, as
she owns a grocery store in Kyle, as
well as ranching with her husband,
Avery. They have two young adult
children who are teachers. It was
great to reconnect with her and
learn that her elderly mother is
still enjoying life, now in Spearfish.
Shorty and Maxine Jones drove
to Brookings where he attended a
meeting of an advisory group to the
Animal Diagnostic Lab and also
the retirement party for Dr. David
Zeman, who has been a tremen-
dous asset to that and the pre-vet-
erinary program at South Dakota
State University. Later, on the way
home, they visited friends Mar-
garet and Myron Joneson at the
beautiful nursing home and as-
sisted living facility in Dell Rapids.
It was great to see them feeling
well and all enjoyed a good visit,
quite a bit about horses, draft
horses in particular. Myron took
Shorty on a couple of trips to Iowa
Amish neighborhoods to look for
new draft horses a few years ago.
Deciding not to attend the cat-
tlemen’s convention this year,
Shorty and Maxine made a few
trips to Rapid City for various stock
show events, taking son Ross and
granddaughter Kalli out to supper
one night for a short visit. Cassie
and Melanie had been to Colorado
for an ice skating test, which went
Scott Jones went to Tampa for
the convention, and Matthew also
went, but he was with an SDSU
young rancher class he takes. He
rode to Rapid City with Wacey
Kirkpatrick and they did make
their plane changes, due to the fact
they can run pretty fast. They re-
ally wanted to be there in time to
go on a ranch tour scheduled for
their group. Those boys came home
with lots of great ideas and maybe
even a taste for alligator meat and
frog legs.
Last weekend, Shorty and Max-
ine went to the showings of "The
Buffalo King," Justin Koehler’s
movie about the life of Scotty
Philip. The theater at Pierre was
full and they ran it a second time,
for between three and four hun-
dred people Saturday. The Gem
Theatre offered a free barbeque
supper and on a really stormy
night, there were about 150 people
attending that one. Everyone we
heard comment were very excited
about it. It is great to have positive
messages about pioneers of the
area, and Mr. Philip was such an
icon and extremely good business-
man to accomplish what he did in
his short life.
I called the store to get Clint and
Brenda Jensen’s news about their
Sioux Falls trip. Clint answered
the phone and said he’d let Brenda
give me the news, his part of the
news was that on the trip home,
driving conditions between
Mitchell and Chamberlain, were
not a bit good. Making them appre-
ciate getting home safely. They left
Tuesday morning for Sioux Falls
spending time visiting their son,
Jon Jensen, Rochelle, Jennah and
Kennedy, Lynchburg, Va., and
their daughter, Amanda and Nick
Massmann, who live in Sioux Falls.
They returned home Thursday.
Judy Daly reported that she
doesn’t get to far from home as they
are calving. She did go to Philip
Sunday, visiting and having lunch
with her mom, Marie Anderson, at
Silverleaf. The day was so nice,
Judy and Marie went for a drive.
It’s always nice to get out and go
for a drive. Marie and her late hus-
band, Kink Anderson, used to load
up their kids and go for a drive
most every evening after they had
eaten supper. I remember staying
with Judy overnight when we were
in high school and going on one of
those drives.
Barb Jones reported other then
she and Morrie going to basketball
games of the grandkids, it is life on
the farm, as usual.
Gene and Audrey Jones have
been going to basketball games at
Kadoka, as their granddaughter,
Destiny Dale, is on the girl’s bas-
ketball team. Districts are this
week. Kadoka plays White River
Congratulations to Shorty and
Mickey Woitte who will be cele-
brating their 65th wedding an-
niversary February 25. And, what
a handsome couple they made, as
family had a picture of them on
their wedding day, in the anniver-
sary card shower ad in the Pioneer
Review. Shorty was raised in Mil-
bank, and came to Midland with a
haying crew, Gorton Crew. Others
in the crew were Rocky Johnson,
Lee Hanson, and Melvin Blackey.
Babe Bathel was a part of the crew
at one time. Shorty met his future
wife, Mickey Martin, through
Henry Jr. “Hank” Martin, who also
worked on a haying crew. Shorty
said at one time, there were four
haying crews in Midland, putting
up hay between Midland, Philip,
Capa, and Ft. Pierre. It was a busy
little town with lots of activities.
Shorty and Mickey have eight chil-
dren: Robin and Joseph Optiz, Ha-
wood, N.D., Rex and Linda Woitte,
Rapid City, Budd Woitte and Susie,
Ridgeview, Calif., Leslie and her
husband, Colonel Terry Meek, live
just out side of Atlanta, Ga., where
he is stationed, Kandi Nelson lives
in Sioux Falls, Kristin Woitte,
Cerique, Wash., Joe and Bobbi
Woitte, Midland, and Eric and Gale
Woitte, near Tea. Congratulations,
Shorty and Mickey.
Saturday, Tel and Ellie Saucer-
man and family of Rapid City went
to the home of her cousin, Nathan
and his wife, Erin, and two kids,
who are now living and working on
the farm of the late Edward and
Elizabeth Nemec, with Nathan’s
brother, Tim Nemec, and their dad,
Mike Nemec. The occasion was for
the birthday party of Nathan and
Erin’s daughter, Ellie, who turned
four or five, not sure which.
Nathan and Erin’s son, Daniel, is
in high school at Pierre and stays
with his grandmother, Susan
Nemec, during the week, as she
works in Pierre. The home Nathan
and Erin live in was originally built
by Eddie Nemec. He and his wife,
Barbara, and family lived in that
home for a number of years. Leo
Nemec and his wife, Betty, lived
with their family for a time in that
house. And then, it was Mark and
Glenda Nemec and family, then
Tim and Lori Nemec and family
and now, Nathan, Erin and family
live there. So, that house has seen
many changes over the years. It
was built onto at one time, also. Tel
and Ellie also visited with his
grandmother and the kids’ great-
grandmother, Wilma Saucerman,
Saturday. His aunt, Sheri Wiech-
mann, and friend, Bill, were also
there. Tel and Ellie left their kids
with their grandpa and grandma,
Clint and Prerry Saucerman, for
the long weekend. Clint and Prerry
took the kids back to Rapid Mon-
day, stopping for a visit with great-
grandpa Gaylord Saucerman at the
Philip Nursing Home and great-
grandmother Marlin Evans at the
Senechal apartments.
I called Emily Sammons for
news. She said they have been
busy with this and that, but noth-
ing newsworthy for the paper.
Friday night, Jenna Finn, Cass
and Cole, went to Bennett County
for the boy’s basketball game of
which her cousin, Chase Haughian,
is the junior varsity coach. Chase
lived in Montana and this is his
first year of teaching.
Play practice continues for the
Midland community play, which
will be coming up in the near fu-
ture, so be watching for dates.
Calvin and Patricia Saucer-
man’s son, Brent Saucerman, and
family live at Hot Springs. Brent
works at the veteran’s administra-
tion in Hot Springs, and recently,
he and two or three other fellows
flew to Washington, D. C., to lobby
for the VA hospital at Hot Springs.
Midland had a busy weekend
with grade basketball games and
roller skating. Friday, was the
grade school basketball games be-
tween Midland/Long Valley, who
co-op Kadoka and Philip. Mid-
land/Long Valley played Philip and
then Kadoka and Philip had a
game. Roger Dale and Matt Van-
derMay are the coaches for Mid-
land, Long Valley, and Kadoka.
The Midland parking lot was filled
with vehicles. It was nice to see.
Saturday, a roller skating activ-
ity, Taggart Skating, sponsored by
the Midland Booster Club, was
held at the Midland school gym
with a large group participating.
There were 60 folks from ages
young to grandparents, dressed up
in reds and pinks as the theme
was, “Valentines.” There were
snacks and drinks for everyone.
Another roller skating activity is
being planned for in March, so be
watching for dates. Nine pre-school
had their Valentine’s party Thurs-
day, as did the older students. Re-
member what fun it was to get
those Valentine cards and Valen-
tine heart candies with those little
sayings on them? Good memories.
It seems like a whole lot of
things can get packed into a single
week, doesn’t it? I am reading an-
other book by Penelope J. Stokes,
“The Wishing Jar.” And, what a
great book it is, as it shares the life
lessons of the people in the book.
Lessons we can sometimes relate,
too. Lessons to be learned and faith
to carry us through those lessons in
life. Each one goes through their
own journey with its lessons of joy,
sorrow, strengths and failures. Life
is all of those things. Family is
such a huge part of life with its
joys, its sorrows and everything
else mixed in-between. Our grand-
daughter, Joanna Nemec, experi-
enced one of those joy times, as she
has been accepted to the radiology
program at Rapid City Regional
Hospital. It is a two-year program
and will begin on June 1. Rather
then going back to School of Mines,
she will be taking morning classes
at Rapid City Regional Radiologist
Tech and in the afternoons she will
be doing some hands on schooling.
She is so excited and we are all ex-
cited for her.
Life’s journey takes us on some
unexpected journeys and there are
times we pray we are up to the
ride. Have a good day and a good

Bald eagle awareness
week February 18-23

Kristi noem
This week President Obama de-
livered what is often seen as the
most important speech of the year.
The State of the Union is delivered
to all three branches of assembled
government and to millions of
Americans at home throughout the
country. It is an opportunity to re-
flect, to cast a vision for the upcom-
ing year and to set a course for the
future of the country.
I came away from the State of
the Union disappointed in the tone
and substance of the president’s re-
marks and hearing the words of
Abraham Lincoln echo through my
mind. As portrayed in the recent
movie “Lincoln,” the embattled
president comments about know-
ing True North. He says that a
compass may point True North, but
what good is it if it can’t tell you
about the swamps and obstacles
along the way? In other words, it’s
one thing to know where you’d like
to go, it’s quite another to have the
wisdom to understand what it
takes to get there.
Whether the president knows
where he wants to take the country
or not, he fails to recognize the ob-
stacles that stand directly in our
way. He spoke of wanting new pro-
grams and greater federal involve-
ment in nearly every part of our
lives, but barely gave mention of
the fact that we have a giant
swamp called the national debt
blocking our path. Understanding
the direction is not enough, we
need true leadership to navigate
the treacherous and winding road
that will lead us there.
In a few weeks, across-the-board
cuts will begin to take $1.2 trillion
out of our national budget. The
president says that he wants to
find a better way, but has paid no
attention to the two pieces of legis-
lation that the House has submit-
ted to responsibly cut spending.
Now, after wandering through the
partisan forest, the President and
senate majority leader are attempt-
ing, at the last minute, to offer a
map that not only tramples any
progress we’ve made, but smashes
the compass in the process. That’s
not leadership, that’s politics.
In order to move ahead in a re-
sponsible manner, the president
must live up to his words in the
State of the Union speech to “set
party interests aside.” I, and my
colleagues in the House, are ready
to once again take up the issue and
work to find common ground. In
the words of Abraham Lincoln,
“You cannot escape the responsibil-
ity of tomorrow by evading it
I hope you reach out to my office
and share your thoughts with me.

It was interesting to read in
Leeanne Neuhauser’s Moenville
column from the February 7 Pio-

that you can take the bottom part
of a used head of romaine lettuce,
put it in water and it will grow
new lettuce. She said it is an ex-

I found out last fall at the West-

if your cookies in the cookie jar
start getting hard, to put a slice or
two of bread in with the cookies.
The moisture from the bread is ab-

them soft again. This works well
with brown sugar as well.
Along that same line is putting
a soda cracker in with your sugar.
The cracker absorbs moisture

Lookin’ Around by Syd Iwan
We recently got a blast from the
past in the form of a letter from a
German fellow who visited here
some 50 years ago. The following is
what he wrote to the “Dear Iwan
“Looking through boxes and
bundles of paper, I came across the
enclosed letter which actually
should have reached you some 50
years ago. As you can see from the
envelope, it traveled quite a bit
around the world before its final
dispatch now. It probably contains
some photographs.
“Let me give you some back-
ground information. In 1961-62, I
spent a year studying at Cornell
University. Before returning to
Germany, I decided to tour your
county and Mexico. I had $250 of
my own, and, according to the doc-
tors at Cornell, being able to stand
cottage cheese, a loaf of white
bread, and one or two pints of milk
every day for about 120 days
should guarantee a healthy surviv-
ing. I hit the road at the beginning
of June 1962. Hitchhiking was the
means of my moving.
“On June 14, I asked the driver
who gave me a ride to stop and
drop me at the junction of the road
from North Platte to the north. He
asked whether I was sure because
there would be “pretty much of not
much.” When I told him I would
not mind and that I wanted to see
the Sandhills region, he mentioned
that in about three days’ time he
would return on the same route,
and, if I was still around, he would
pick me up again. This was not
necessary. After a few hours, a re-
ally old vehicle stopped, picked me
up, and gave me a lift. When they
had to turn off west, I was alone
again, surrounded by low sand
dunes. For the next hours, the
heads of cattle appeared, ruminat-
ing, looking at me for a few sec-
onds, and then ‘submerging’ again.
“Finally a car approached,
stopped, and the driver bent over
and asked, ‘What dropped you
here, son? Where do you sleep?’
When I answered that I had a
sleeping bag and the roadside, he
just answered, ‘You might be in for
a surprise. This year we have un-
usual rainfall. You better jump in.
We will find you a roof.’ And thus,
pretty near the middle of nowhere
as I started to feel after all the
hours of waiting and in a very
silent surrounding, I learned to
know Mr. Iwan, the driver. Driving
for miles, then at road 16 turning
to the west and leaving the high-
way at Stamford Store, entering a
gravel road towards the south, and
after another couple of miles turn-
ing around a corner, the day’s ride
ended at your ranch. I saw several
low houses and 10 or so men who,
if I am not mistaken, were all the
sons of the Iwan clan.
“In the evening, they asked me
to join them for a beer. To my sur-
prise, this was 30 or more miles
away across the range. The next
morning (June 15) very early and
after a great breakfast in the dark-
ness, all drove to the center of the
ranch where I was “confronted”
with a horse. I had never been near
to such an animal and, after a few
to Germany.
“You may ask, ‘What about the
letter prepared for dispatch to you
in the Philippines?’ In 1963 and up
to 1965, I went for research work
to the southern Philippines. My
base among the Muslims was the
Dansalan Junior College in
Marawi City. Somehow, the letter
slipped in a heap of paper and
turned up by chance just now. I do
not want to extend this letter, but
let me tell you. The stay at your
ranch definitely gave me a great
insight into life in the countryside,
and it impressed me deeply. I just
would like to thank you once more
very much after 50 years. With
best wishes, Klaus Hausherr.”
The letter contained a picture of
the Stamford Store from a postcard
plus five photos of a branding at
our place. In one, I was holding the
back leg of a calf for branding. I
would have been between my jun-
ior and senior years of high school.
Also in the photos were Ted Vobr
(who is still on the ranch,) my
cousin Joe Iwan and Jim Srb. The
Mr. Iwan noted was my Uncle
Harold (1899-1979.)
A blast from the past indeed.
moments, I was on top of it, lifted
up by two of the young men who
had stood right and left of me. I fol-
lowed their advice and stayed atop.
The day passed by rounding up
and branding cattle. I have to con-
fess, if you had to make a selection
on this day about who was the
more useful farmhand, I myself
would have had to vote definitely
for the horse. It knew in advance
where to move to bring the cattle
together and just ignored my or-
ders at the reins. In the evening,
there was another beer, again
some 15 or so miles across the
ranch. This time it was towards
the west.
“The next day I was not much
able to move, not so much from the
beer but from daylong range activ-
ities. On June 16, all went to a
rodeo in the Badlands, and I was
glad I didn’t have to join the per-
formance but could watch from be-
hind the fence. After these two
great days, I hit the road again –
Seattle, San Francisco, Los Ange-
les, Grand Canyon to name only
some of my stops, and then Mexico
and Yucatan. From there it was
back to New York to catch the ship

she had to buy her own Valentine’s
supper as John forgot his wallet at
home!) Now do you need a few les-
sons from John or what? Arnis re-
turned to Rapid City Saturday,
February 16, where she again met
Gayle and Ralph Matz and they
went to a big swap meet which is
sort of like a huge garage sale.
Arnis said that there were over 205

a good deed for someone and you
will never regret it. As when you do
a good deed, you receive more from
it than the one who receives it. You
receive a smile, a thank you, a hug,
what more could you ask for than

Good morning from warm and
tropical Kadoka. Well, not quite
that romantic, but we have enjoyed
some warm days that depleted the
snow that was banked up and re-
duced it to water. Unfortunately, it
hasn’t soaked in too quickly, so
when I went to take the plane for a
fly Sunday there was a bit of a
water hole where I needed to taxi
to get to the runway. Since new
brakes had just been put on I didn’t
think it was wise to get them wet
and possibly frozen, the plane was
left tethered in the hanger. I re-
member one time I was anxious to
fly, taxied toward the run-up pad
only to be stuck tight in gumbo. I
proceeded to use the tie down on
the tail to free it and did get things
put away. Dug out mud from the
wheel pants and finally they came
off so that wouldn’t happen again.
Monday afternoon, Caitlin
Klumb went to Sturgis to visit
grandma Cathy Fiedler and get
help sewing a book made of cloth
for her art class. She had to water-
paint five pictures and sew them on
material and then put it together
as a book. She got a 95 percent on
it. She drove herself over, first time
driving on the interstate and all
was good.
Monday, Tony Harty stopped by
our house to give me his news for
the week. He’s feeling a little better
after a punky last week.
Don and Vi Moody had a pretty
exciting week at the ranch with
several appointments in Philip and
busy at the ranch. Brian Koehn
was helping out the greater part of
the week getting ready for a cattle
sale. Don has been putting his new
skidsteer to work around and about
moving snow out of the corrals
around the loading chute and the
cattle came in to the place out of
curiosity hearing the engine noise
so moving them closer was not a
problem at all.
As we watch TV, it seems the
music in the background drowns
out the voices of the actors (is that
age related ) and seldom can I get
interested in the newer shows due
to the prolific use of cussing. We do
enjoy the old time shows, “Bo-
nanza” and “Matlock,” to mention
a couple, and it was interesting
that this week the screenwriter for
those shows passed away at 98
years of age, Richard Collins.
Shows that don’t have to be cen-
sored ahead of time. Very refresh-
What to do when the furnace
doesn’t run, call for help. Tony
Harty was in that situation and
Tuesday Brian Hansen was by to
check on the problem and ordered
a new furnace motor and at-
tempted to make the old one work
until the repair arrived. Tony vis-
ited Shirley Hair after picking up
the mail.
Tuesday visitors at our place
were Dean Parsons, Philip, and
Phyllis Word. An enjoyable time
spent talking about old times.
Weather in the Sturgis area
there was some snow Tuesday and
Thursday and windy the whole
week, or so Cathy Fiedler said it
seemed. Saturday was a beautiful
day though, to make up for the rest
of the week.
Wednesday morning, I was a bit
busy with some business. Penny
Stout stopped briefly in the morn-
ing and Brian Koehn in the after-
noon. I made a trip to Philip in the
Haakon County Prairie Trans-
portation van in the afternoon and
boy was the wind blowing. Bill en-
joyed his home away from home in
the afternoon.
Wednesday, Tony Harty picked
up mail and delivered it to Shirley
Hair and visited.
Thursday, Todd O'Connor and
Rich Foley arrived at the Moody
ranch and hauled cattle into the
livestock auction with the help of
Don Moody, Brian Koehn, Cap
Herber, and Blaine Hicks from
Kadoka. It was windy and periods
of blowing snow, but all worked out
very smoothly and at least the haul
was a short one for the truckers.
That was how Don and Vi cele-
brated their anniversary.
Valentine’s Day blew in with a
vengance. I had an early morning
trip to Murdo that Thursday with
the HCPT. Who would suppose you
could get lost in Murdo? However,
I had to enlist the help of Phylis Pe-
ters to find the Murdo clinic. It’s
not what you know sometimes, but
who you know! The wind jostled us
along both ways and snow accom-
panied us, off and on, as well.
Sandee Gittings left Thursday
after work to go to Aberdeen for the
annual S.D. Farmers Union con-
vention. She drove on about 75
miles of solid ice from Holabird to
north of Redfield on the way.
Headed for home Sunday morning
and had some bad roads between
Miller and Highmore.
Don and Vi Moody had to take
their laptop computer Friday after-
noon to Philip to find out why the
color was distorted. It all hinged on
the position of the monitor being
very sensitive to movement due to
just wear and opening and closing
the monitor screen so often. But
Ron said it will probably work okay
for awhile as long as the monitor
position stays very stable, so Vi has
to type gently and they don't rock
the boat, so to speak. They had a
late lunch at the Lucky Strike
bowling lanes.
Friday, Bill was like a cricket
rubbing his legs together until they
were raw. A quick trip to the
Kadoka Clinic and Dr. Coen Klop-
per sized him up, surveyed the
healing we have been doing, and
gave him some medication for that
itching going on, as well as for the
fever that had just hit him. We
made a trip to Philip for prescrip-
tions. In the afternoon, I visited
Emma Jarl at the Kadoka Nursing
Home and also Dale and Cindy O’-
Connell, who were up to their eye-
brows in old pictures, newspapers
and scrapbooks with Donna (O’-
Connell) and Richard Perez. This
was a collection their grandmother
had accumulated and it was mar-
velous. She had carefully written
on so many family pictures.
Don and Vi Moody had many
calls and visitors Friday at the
ranch, as well as seeing a longtime
friend, Kenny Stoner, who used to
live at the Lampert/Moody ranch in
the early 1970s when his folks,
Mary Ann and Leo, leased it for a
few years from Vi's folks. Kenny
was in the area visiting his folks in
Philip, so stopped in to visit while
driving into Philip from his home
near Murdo.
Don and Vi Moody left for Rapid
City Saturday afternoon to finally
celebrate the anniversary they
missed on Valentine's Day. The
weather was balmy with tempera-
tures in the mid-50s, a beautiful
weekend to enjoy being out and
about. When they got their mail on
Saturday on their way to Rapid,
they found a large box from Vi's
friend, Lori Newman Courtney, Ft.
Worth, Texas, and it was full of
pecans from Lori and Ed's proper-
ties in Texas and Oklahoma. What
a neat surprise that was.
Jessica Gittings visited George
Gittings Saturday and did up the
dishes for him!
Our Sympathy to the family of
Hans E. Hanson, who passed away
this week. Hans was a figure
among the businesses for many
years in Philip and thoroughly en-
joyed a good hunt.
Thursday, Tony Harty took mail
to Shirley Hair and visited. He also
visited with Dale Koehn and Kathy
Brown. Kathy had knee surgery at
a same day surgical center in
Rapid Tuesday and she is recover-
ing nicely.
Friday after getting the mail,
Tony Harty went out for breakfast.
He visited with Hairs. That visit
was also partly to get warmed up,
but he was thankful it wasn’t all
that cold, since the furnace had
completely given up the ghost.
Brian Hanson to the rescue with
the new motor in the afternoon and
Tony enjoyed a warm house again.
Saturday, Tony Harty made a
trip to the post office, then took
Hair’s mail to them. Shirley was
under the weather a little. He went
out for coffee and in the afternoon
attended the birthday party for
Jerry Stilwell.
Saturday afternoon, I was
among the many who attended the
80th birthday celebration for Jerry
Stilwell at their café. What a group
of folks, so many from Philip and
Kadoka. It was a perfect day for the
Sunday, Tony Harty was out to
church, then out for dinner and en-
joyed a visit with Jerry and Joann
Stilwell while there. AAU
wrestling was going on at the
Kadoka auditorium most of the

It was a run-away for the Philip
Area grapplers as they claimed the
Region 4B title by more than 60
points, and garnering seven first
and second placings.
Head coach Matt Donnelly was
pleased for the team and the indi-
viduals as they wrestled well at the
tourney. The team took 10 kids and
placed nine. Four open slots in the
126, 132, 138, and 145 weight
classes were not good for the team
though, he said. Injuries and ill-
ness were the main reasons for the

Donnelly noted that while Geof-
frey DeVries did not place at the re-
gion tournment he has been learn-
ing at every tournament. DeVries,
Donnelly noted, is at the light end
of the heavy weight division and is
just an eighth grader wrestling
older, heavier opponents.
Up next for the Badlands
Brawlers is the State B tourna-
ment in Aberdeen, Febraury 22
and 23. Donnelly is excited about
Philip’s prospects at the tourna-
ment, but noted it will be tough.
“Anyone can beat anyone,” he said.
“They are there for a reason.”
State team rankings heading
into State B are Parkston (144),
Canton (100), Wagner (98),
Howard (90), Beresford (88), Tri-
Valley (87), Philip (77), Flandreau
(72.5), Bon Homme (71) and Web-
ster (70).
Individual rankings have Brown
in sixth, Johnson ninth, Donnelly
eighth, Blasius second, Sudbeck
third, Stout sixth, Knutson fifth
and Ammons eighth.

The Lady Scotties junior varsity
team hosted both the Lyman
Raiders and the Wall Eagles, Sat-
urday, February 16.
In the Scotties versus the Eagles
junior varsity game, Philip started
slow. But, by the end of the first
half, they had not only caught up
but had taken the lead. That lead
was improved by one more point by
the end of the third quarter. The
final quarter was a devastation for
the Scotties. They could not hold
their opponents’ offensive on-
slaught. In the fourth quarter, Wall
almost doubled its score from all its
previous quarters, for the win.

Six young teams from the Philip
area competed in the Black Hills
Power Shoot-out basketball tour-
nament that was held in several
Rapid City locations, Saturday and
Sunday, February 16-17. There
were a total of 168 teams, covering
grades four through eight, from
South Dakota, Wyoming, North
Dakota and Nebraska.
The fourth grade Philip Lady
Scotties were in the “black” pool of
competing teams, and played on
the North Middle School auxiliary
court. Their first of three games
was versus the Belle Fourche
Crush. Philip won 8-7. Their sec-
ond game, against the Rapid City
Fire, was another win with the
score of 12-11. The third game, for
the championship, was a 19-31 loss
to the Winner Lady Warriors. The
Philip team’s coaches are Colt and
Jenny Terkildsen.
The sixth grade Philip boys,
coached by Holly Schaack, were in
their own “black” pool. Their games
were played at the Central High
School. The first game ended as a
5-11 loss to the Rapid City Heat.
The second was another loss, this
time 15-21 to the Rozet (Wyo.)
Mustangs. Philip’s third match was
versus the Rapid City Blue Jaiz, re-
sulting in a Philip loss.
Philip’s sixth grade girls’ team
was in the “red” pool of competing
teams. Calling themselves Wild-
fire, they played at South Middle
School. Philip enjoyed a 19-10 first-
game win over the Spearfish Slam-
mers. Their second game was also
an easy win, 23-6, over the Rapid
City Wildcats. Now, having earned
a top-seed position, they faced the
“white” pool winners, defeating the
Ipswich Lady Tigers 17-11. The
Philip team’s coaches are Tayta
West and Paulette Ramsey. West
encourages local adults to take
teams to the shoot out tournament,
where the players on the teams can
experience time on the court.
The seventh grade girls’ team
from Philip, the Philip Orange
Crush, was in the “black” pool of
contending teams. On the East
Middle School court, they first blew
away the New Underwood Lady
Tigers 17-5. Their second game
was far closer, but still a win, this
time 19-14 over the Gillette (Wyo.)
Rockers. Coincidentally, one of the
Gillette players is the granddaugh-
ter of Marvin and Vickie Eide,
Philip. The Philip girls then sealed
the championship by defeating the
Colome Cowgirls 23-6. Their coach
is RaeAnn Snyder.
Philip’s eighth grade girls were
in the “white” pool and played on
Central High School’s Naasz gym-
nasium court. The Philip Lady
Scotties first defeated the Lodge-
pole Nighthawks 30-19. Their sec-
ond game was a 30-39 loss to the
Sidney (Neb.) Lady Raiders. Their
third game, for third place in the
tournament was a 23-27 loss to the
Belle Fourche Broncos. Team mem-
bers were Tia Guptill, Shay Hand,
Peyton Kuchenbecker, Elise
Wheeler, Sammie Schofield, Chris-
tine Womack and Ashley Williams.
The Philip team is coached by Brad
and Carrie Kuchenbecker.
The eighth grade boys from the
Philip area were in the “white” pool
and played on Central High
School’s Naasz gymnasium court.
Their first game ended as a 27-37
loss to the Hot Springs Bison. Their
second game was a 39-28 win over
the Rapid City Thunder. Philip had
to settle for sixth place when they
lost 18-46 to the Standing Rock
Rebels. The Philip team is coached
by Dana Kerns and assisted by
Branden West.

One point was good enough for
the win, with the Philip Scotties
boys’ basketball team defeating the
Irrigators in Newell, Monday, Feb-
ruary 11.
The first quarter ended with a
15-15 tie. The second quarter saw
a six-point lead held by the Irriga-
tors. Then, in the third quarter, the
Scotties not only caught up but also
passed the Irrigators by seven
points. That one point extra in
come back ability saved Philip
when Newell attempted its own
come back. Hot action ensued, but
when the last buzzer sounded, the
Scotties were ahead 58-57 for the

A new state record lake trout
was caught from Pactola Reservoir
on January 23 by Aaron Jones,
Rapid City. Weighing in at 30
pounds even, this record lake trout
surpassed the previous record, held
by Steve Matheny, by more than a
pound. Jones’ lake trout measured
41 inches in length with a 24 ½
inch girth.
Lake trout are a non-native
species. The first lake trout stock-
ing occurred in Belle Fourche
Reservoir in 1914.
To qualify for a state record, the
angler must get the fish weighed
on a certified scale (available at
grocery stores), have the species
verified by a fisheries biologist, and
fill out a form found at

dently the road conditions weren't
very good as Jon was coming home.
But one thing is for sure – if you
grow up in Minnesota, you know
how to deal with snow and ice! Jon
and Connie's son, Wyatt, was home
for the holiday weekend from his
studies at South Dakota State Uni-
Ray and Nancy Neuhauser re-
cently returned from a trip to
Florida. They attended the annual
meeting of the National Cattle-
men's Beef Association as well as
the American National Cattle-
women. They went with a group to
the local fairgrounds where the
Florida cattlemen were opening a
museum about the industry in
their state. Evidently, Florida was
the first state in our nation to have
cattle. Ray and Nancy also took a
tour of two cattle ranches and a
water preserve, as well as a huge
strawberry farm and a winery.
While in Florida, they also got to
visit with Raymond's grandchil-
dren, Jessica and William, and
their families. Jessie and Willie are
children of Clayton Neuhauser.

Boger had their educational agri-
cultural exhibit at a fair in the
area, so Raymond and Nancy also
got to visit with them and tour
their display. Nancy said Connie
and Bunky do such a service to the
agriculture industry by providing
this informative, hands-on oppor-
tunity to the public. Nancy said at
one point, Connie was milking a
cow, showing the fair-goers where
their milk comes from, and the kids
were lined up for quite a ways,
waiting for their turn to "milk the
Nels and Dorothy Paulson have
been home this week – they didn't
even have to go to town for sup-
plies. They have been enjoying puz-
zles – jigsaw and crossword puz-
zles. Puzzles can be relaxing, and
they are a good way to exercise
your mind. However, at the Paul-
son home, jigsaw puzzles are not
relaxing for Dorothy, so she sticks
to the crossword puzzles. She said
she is too impatient, and if she
can't find pieces to the jigsaw puz-
zle in a short amount of time, then
she is frustrated!
Mary Briggs was in Rapid City
Saturday attending a wrestling
competition. I haven't heard the re-
sults, but I hope the grandsons did
well. Lee and Mary were in Pierre
Sunday to take pictures prior to the
King of Hearts event. Their daugh-
ter, Cattibrie Riggle, was one of the
attendees. Lee said that his
mother, Lil Briggs, continues to do
pretty well. Lee's brother and sis-
ter-in-law, Lane and Sonja, are
there with Lil, and several other
friends and relatives help out, al-
lowing Lil to remain in her own
home, which is where she is happi-
Frank and Shirley Halligan trav-
eled to Rapid City Wednesday to
see David Hand, who was a patient
in the hospital there. Dave was in
the process of being released from
the hospital, so Frank and Shirley
had lunch with Dave, Laura, and
their grandson, Seth, before re-
turning home. Saturday, the Halli-
gan's traveled to Faith to a basket-
ball game between Faith and
As I mentioned, David Hand was
released from the Rapid City hos-
pital last Wednesday, which is
great news. Now, as Paul Harvey
would say, here's the rest of the
story! David spent Wednesday
night at home, but he was having
some breathing difficulties when
he woke up Thursday, so he went
back to the Philip hospital. They
found he had pneumonia, so he
spent several days in the hospital
there, returning home early this
week. I hope now he'll be able to
settle in at home and recover!
Clark and Carmen Alleman were
in Rochester recently for a check-
up. Carmen said the check-up went
well, which is great news! Grand-
daughter Alivya visited Clark and
Carmen for a couple of afternoons
last week while Alivya's mom was
busy with some projects. Saturday,
Carmen joined a group of ladies at
the Kirley Hall for a scrapbooking
session. There is also a lady that
comes to the hall and gives mas-
sages – sounds like a great way to
Mary Neuhauser attended the
state gymnastics meet last week –
her niece was one of the partici-
pants. Daughter Sarah, who works
in Spearfish, also came down for
some of the meet. Kevin
Neuhauser traveled to Highmore
Saturday to see his mother, Ruth
Neuhauser, as well as his sister,
Nina, and her husband, Lynn
Nachtigall. Lynn and Nina were
visiting from their home in
Cheyenne, Wyo., and they spent a
few days with Ruth. The group had
supper together Saturday evening.
Kevin said Lynn and Nina were
going to be stopping through
Spearfish to pick up some house-
plants that Sarah "babysat" for
several months while Lynn and
Nina were in Italy. According to
Kevin, Lynn and Nina will be head-
ing south soon to visit some friends
and see some sights. Their daugh-
ter, Tara, is working with a produc-
tion that is touring in the south-
west, so Lynn and Nina will be able
to spend some time with her, also.
It sounds like Lynn and Nina are
making the most of their retire-
Max and Joyce Jones have been
home this week – taking advantage
of this slower time of year. Joyce
said she has been working on
taxes, which doesn't sound relaxing
to me at all!
Clint and Laura Alleman have
been busy with chores and prepa-
ration for the upcoming Hayes
play. Laura is the director, and she
said they are having dress re-
hearsal this week. I'm sure the
Hayes play will provide a fun
evening, just as it has for decades.
Clint and Laura were in Pierre on
Valentine's Day, and they cele-
brated with a Valentine's lunch!
T.J. Gabriel took some bulls to
Sturgis last weekend to take part
in the pen of three exhibits there.
T.J. will be having his annual bull
sale soon.
Bill and Polly Bruce have been
enjoying a quieter winter schedule.
They went to Ida Hunt's funeral on
February 11. Last Friday, their
son, Vince, went to the Black Hills
to ski with friends. His wife, Katie,
is not a skiing enthusiast, so she
opted to stay at the ranch and help
keep the chores done. Saturday
evening, Bill and Polly attended
church in Midland. Sunday, Katie
went rock hunting with Jason Fis-
cher and others – the group was
searching for Fairburn agates.
Polly said Katie didn't find any
Fairburns, but she did bring home
some beautiful rocks. Polly said she
has been spending time working on
quilts and crafts – perfect winter-
time activities!
Randy and I seemed to have a
busy week. Randy was in Philip
last Monday and Tuesday to get
supplies and go to the cattle sale,
and I was in Philip Wednesday for
a meeting. Sunday, I headed to
Salem to visit our daughter, Jen-
nifer, and Monday Randy attended
a Masonic Lodge meeting in Pierre.
We enjoyed the few days of gor-
geous weather!
Today, I am grateful for technol-
ogy that allows me to submit this
column to the Pioneer Review office
from Salem, or anywhere else. All
I need is a computer. This technol-
ogy was science fiction not that
many years ago.
I hope you will all bundle up and
stay safe and warm through the
cold, snowy days ahead. And start
doing some exercises, so you'll be
ready for gardening season!
