This year’s one-act drama by the
Philip High School actors and crew,
“Discovering Rogue,” placed in the
top two positions at the Region VII-
B contest. The students now will
perform their acting skills at the
state one-act festival, Thursday
through Saturday, January 31, and
February 1-2, at the Brandon Val-
ley Performing Arts Center.
The regional judges also honored
Philip actors Rachel Parsons and
Jane Poss with outstanding per-
former awards, and Brooke Nelson
received honorable mention.
Wall High School’s one-act entry,
“Orphan Trains,” also earned one
of the top two positions at regions.
At state, Philip will perform at
12:30 p.m., January 31, and Wall
will perform at 8:15 p.m., February
1.
Philip director Laura O’Connor
and Wall director Ron Burtz invite
the public to attend extra showings
of the plays, Sunday, January 27.
Both casts will first perform in
Wall at the Powerhouse, in the old
school building, starting at 1:30
p.m. with Philip performing first.
Then the casts and crews will
travel to Philip to perform in the
Fine Arts Building, starting at 5:00
p.m., with Wall performing first.
According to O’Connor, both
casts have made changes to their
shows and are eager to show their
audiences what will be appearing
before the state judges. They will
have a free will offering for admis-
sion to cover the cost of additional
royalty fees due to the added per-
formances.
Wall’s “Orphan Train,” written
by Deborah Craig, includes 17
characters and four crew members.
It portrays the Children’s Aid Soci-
ety of New York efforts from the
1850s to 1920s to transport over
200,000 orphaned and neglected
children to the west and to new
families.
O’Connor said that the SDHSAA
State One-Act Play Festival is not
a competition; rather, it is a chance
for casts from across the state to
see three days of plays in a festival
setting, which means the classes of
schools are not separated and the
daily rotation of plays is AA, A and
B, AA, A, B, etc. AA schools auto-
matically advance and can perform
whichever type of play they choose:
comedy or drama, whereas the A
schools and B schools must com-
pete at a region level to advance to
the festival and are on a rotation of
comedy and serious. This year's ro-
tation is for the A schools to per-
form comedies and the B schools to
perform serious shows. The top
award at the festival is to receive a
superior play award as a cast and
individually to receive the out-
standing performer or outstanding
ensemble recognition.

The local National Mutual Benefit chapter #85 sponsored a benefit supper for
Lola Hulce (inset), Saturday, January 19, at the commons area of the Philip High
School, before and during the doubleheader Philip Scotties basketball games.
The proceeds from the free will offerings are to help Hulce with medical expenses.
She is fighting a reoccurrance of cancer. The funds raised through the benefit,
totaling approximately $6,000, included a $2,500 match from NMB. Pictured
above are, from left, Mike Koehler, Maureen Palecek, Becky Brech, Pennie

The Midland Volunteer Fire De-
partment recently held a fund-
raiser raffle for a quarter of beef.
The department raised over
$2,000, with matching funds of
$1,500 from Modern Woodmen of
America. The two winners of the
drawing were Murdo Ford and
Mike Stroppel. The beef was do-
nated by the Roseth brothers.
The funds will go toward upgrad-
ing the Midland Unit 5, also known
as the Ottumwa truck. According
to Reuban Vollmer, Jr., the current
fire truck is a 1979 International,
which has many aging problems. In
the past few years it has had me-
chanical failure and has been
deemed unusable as a dependable
fire truck.
The old fire truck’s replacement
will be a 1998 International, four-
wheel drive, which was a former
power company bucket truck. It
will be equipped with a 1,000 gal-
lon tank, a foam unit, emergency
lights and a state compatible radio.
The unit will be staged at Golden
Willow Seeds during the summer
months, providing quicker re-
sponse to emergencies in that area.
Along with working with the other
Midland units and other equip-
ment, this unit will assist Philip,
Milesville and Hayes fire depart-
ments. Vollmer said that the Mid-
land department is moving forward
in the building of the new fire
truck.

The South Dakota Secretary of
State’s office has seen a significant
increase in the number of permits
to carry a concealed pistol issued in
recent months.
As of January 11, 2013, the total
number of active permits in South
Dakota is 65,754.
Concealed pistol permit numbers
have increased during the past
three years:
2011 15,794
2012 18,031
2013 (thru 1-11) 3,029
Haakon County Sheriff Fred
Koester said that, as of January 18,
this year has seen eight new per-
mits applications, and 10 renewels.
In 2012, there were 26 new permits
applied for, and 31 renewed in
Haakon County. Good for four
years, the permits cost 10 dollars,
with seven dollars going to the
state and three dollars going to the
county.
Secretary of State Jason Gant
said, “An individual who wishes to
carry a concealed pistol on or about
his person or in a vehicle must ob-
tain a permit to carry a concealed
pistol. A person does not need a
permit to own a pistol, keep it in
his/her home, business, or prop-
erty, or visibly carry it.”
To obtain a concealed pistol per-
mit you must apply in person at
your local sheriff’s office. Carrying
a concealed pistol without a permit
is a class 1 misdemeanor punish-
able by one year imprisonment in a
county jail or $1,000 fine, or both.
The applicant must also meet the
following requirements: Is 18 years
of age or older; has never pled
guilty to, nolo contendere to, or
been convicted of a felony or a
crime of violence; is not habitually
in an intoxicated or drugged condi-
tion; has no history of violence; has
not been found in the previous 10
years to be a “danger to others” or
a “danger to self” or is not currently
adjudged mentally incompetent;
has physically resided in and is a
resident of the county where the
application is being made for at
least 30 days immediately preced-
ing the date of the application; has
had no violations of firearms con-
trol, unlawful use of weapons, or
controlled substances; is a citizen
of the United States; and is not a
fugitive from justice.
The sheriff will issue a tempo-
rary permit within five days from
the date of application. Once the
application is received in the Secre-
tary of State’s Office a permanent
permit will be issued and is valid
for four years.
Reciprocity has been established
with bordering states of North
Dakota and Wyoming as well as 24
additional states. Visit sdsos.gov
for more information.

The local youth dancers, the Shake-It-Up girls, performed during halftime at the January 14 Philip High School Lady Scotties
basketball game. The girls showed off their new poodle skirts, made by Gloria French. During a medley of music styles, the
group displayed a variety of dance styles – from sunglasses-sassy, to jitterbug, to line dancing and others. The dancers
didn’t lose a beat when their velcro-attached skirts were instantly replaced by blue jeans underneath. Shown, back row,

Extreme temperature drops
were recorded January 16 in the
northeast portion of the state by
the South Dakota Office of Climate
and Weather.
The most notable temperature
change was at the Leola station,
which recorded a 12 degree drop in
10 minutes and an 18 degree drop
in an hour. The temperature fell
from 38 degrees at 11:35 a.m. to 26
degrees at 11:45 a.m., and finally to
20 degrees by 12:35 p.m.
“Although this is notable, it is
not a record,” said Nathan Ed-
wards, South Dakota State Univer-
sity research assistant and net-
work engineer. “The National
Weather Service states that the
United States record for a two hour
temperature change is held by
Rapid City with a 62 degree drop
on January 13, 1911.”
Spearfish set a United states
record with a 49 degree rise in two
minutes on January 22, 1943, ac-
cording to the National Climatic
Data Center.
The SDOCW at South Dakota
State University operates a
statewide network of 34 weather
stations. The stations report up-
date as often as every five minutes.

Lookin’ Around by Syd Iwan
“Money can’t buy happiness, but
it can buy chickens, and that’s
pretty much the same thing.” I
read this little saying the other day
and thought, “That’s about right.”
For some strange reason, I’ve al-
ways liked having those silly crit-
ters running around the place
making it homey. They’re so
dreadfully optimistic and cheerful.
They can hardly wait to start each
new day since there is bound to be
something wonderful just about to
happen, or so they think. Open the
door or gate in the morning, and
the birds don’t just wander out.
They run and fly out to spread in
all four directions. Pretty soon
they’re chasing grasshoppers,
scratching busily in the dirt, tak-
ing dust baths, and generally hav-
ing a grand old time. Watching all
this lifts my spirits and makes me
smile.
My neighbor, Chuck, apparently
feels somewhat the same way.
They haven’t had any chickens
around their place for a number of
years, but Chuck has been plotting
to get some for quite a while. Last
spring he finally got things to-
gether enough to order some baby
chicks so he now has eggs to sell
from time to time. Since I unfortu-
nately do not have any hens myself
at present, this is good because
farm-raised eggs do taste better
than those shipped in to the gro-
cery stores. They have more color-
ful yolks as well and firmer shells.
Better-tasting eggs, actually,
and more of them, are one of the
main advantages of having chick-
ens around. In my experience and
financially speaking, you aren’t apt
to make much money raising
chickens. You’re probably lucky to
break even. The birds are satisfy-
ing in other terms, some of which
I’ve just mentioned, but as a
money-maker not so much.
Early last year, Chuck asked
what breeds I’d found that might
work out well for him. Heaven
knows I’ve had enough experience
through raising thousands of
chickens over the years and trying
dozens of breeds from tiny little
bantams to huge old things. I said
I’d found Hubbard Golden Comet
hens to be the best layers of brown-
shelled eggs and some form of
Leghorns for white. Cornish-Rocks
are the best meat chickens by far.
Chuck eventually took some of my
advice but also ordered some just
for fun and because their color etc.
appealed to him. I know he got
some roosters because Ted at our
river place can hear them crowing
from across the river on a quiet
day.
What doesn’t work very well are
those breeds that our touted as
dual-purpose. These are supposed
to be good producers of both meat
and eggs. In practice, those hens
don’t lay nearly as well as the ones
bred strictly for egg production.
The roosters also tend to get tough
before they’re big enough to have
much meat on them. I remember
many years ago when Chuck’s
wife, Merry, was grumbling
around one day that she’d
butchered an old rooster and tried
to boil it up for soup. Her comment
was, “I boiled that sucker for three
days, and it was still tough.” That
may have been a slight overstate-
ment, but it is probably true that
any rooster over six-months old
should just be fed to the cats.
Cooking it is apt to be a waste of
time. Any rooster much over two-
months of age, in fact, is going to
be a little tough unless you fricas-
see it which involves cooking it a
really long time.
Well, as you can probably tell, a
person raises chickens because he
or she enjoys it and reaps some
benefits along the way although
probably not financially. That ap-
plies to lots of other things as well
such as gardening. You can buy
your veggies about as cheaply as
you can raise them, but some
home-raised ones taste ever so
much better. Other pursuits that
grab people’s interest and time
might include hunting, fishing,
woodworking, quilting, knitting,
sewing, and genealogy. These
things might not make you rich,
but they might make you happy.
By the way, I saw another say-
ing the other day that probably ap-
plies to neighbor Chuck along with
the one about chickens. That one
goes, “The most important thing in
life is to be yourself, unless you can
be a cowboy. Always be a cowboy.”
Chuck and a whole lot of other peo-
ple around here would definitely
subscribe to that theory. It tends
to get in the blood. Put another
way, we might say, “Money can’t
buy happiness, but it can buy
horses and cattle, and that’s pretty
much the same thing.”

Video game mania ... by Del Bartels
The advancement of electronic entertainment is bewildering. An HD
flatscreen television with surround sound can also work as a computer
screen, thus can be used for two-way visual skyping, that is if you don’t
want to use your Android or iPhone to see the other person. There are
still some people around who remember black and white console tele-
visions that needed a bent wire coat hanger as rabbit ears.
The dime-operated telephone booth has been replaced with everyone
having a cell phone. The phrase “It’s your dime,” makes no sense to
teenagers. The only reason they recognize Pac-man is it’s so retro. Now
you can kill your video bad guy with swords, guns, bazookas, lasers,
cars and level 11 warrior king martial arts ability. At least an old tele-
phone can go in a landfill, but not so for modern electronics.
Even cars are too advanced. The crankcase handle for the Model A is
now a remote start from inside your home. Do teenagers even know
what a carburator was, instead of fuel injection? A screwdriver and at-
tentive hearing is now a computer diagnostic. The ancient excuse of
running out of gas so you could get in a little kissing no longer holds,
with your date’s father having GPS tracking on her cell phone, hybrid
cars with navigation systems, and her constantly texting.
Some luxuries have turned into necessities. Camping now often
means a fifth-wheel Hilton. As a Boy Scout, I actually did camp for
three nights with a sleeping bag, tarp, canteen, pocket knife and a large
sandwich bag for everything else. I must admit, a flashlight is a nifty
thing. Do I actually say “nifty”? A relative of mine guided a man on an
elk hunt in western Wyoming. They had to stop each day for two to
three hours so the man could watch the football game on his four-inch
screen TV with satellite hook-up. Fancy restaurant etiquette used to
be to turn off your cell phone, now it is to not talk louder than the guy
at the next table, especially if you actually are talking to him on the
phone. At the next basketball game you attend, look around for some-
one texting someone else on the other side of the auditorium.
Why not market video games that train people to do their job? Instead
of FarmVille on Facebook, why not an app that uses real-time interest
on ag loans, real-time weather, and today’s seed and chemical prices?
If this sounds silly, why does the military desensitize soldiers with
blow-em-up video games? Imagine a high-level job resume that reads,
“I reached level 24 on the ‘Bankers take over America’ video game. But,
I bet the bank wouldn’t accept the excuse of you getting your favorite
video game mixed up with your actual business ledger. Real businesses
don’t have a re-set or new world button. Real businesses go on even if
the power and batteries go out ... or do they?
My back side should get cramps because of me working too long at
my desk or driving my car on a long trip, not because of me falling
asleep in a chair holding a laptop and playing a video game.
Free junior high dance just for fun
A free dance for Haakon School District seventh and eighth grade students was held in the elementary gymnsasium, Thurs-
day, January 17, after the home junior high boys’ basketball game. A photo-booth for one dollar per instant photo was set
up, and props could be worn to make the photos more fun. Efforts by volunteer parents to hold the dance were headed by
Mindy Green. Mike Seager donated his talents and equipment as disc jockey. The event was held on a Thursday evening
so students living in the country would not have to travel back to town on a weekend night. Green said that she and other
parents wanted an activity for this group that was age appropriate and fun. Future activities are being planned.

College Briefs
by State Senator Jim Bradford
We’re now well into committee
work in both Senate Health and
Senate Judiciary as we end the sec-
ond week of the session.
As I’ve known over the 12 years
I’ve served in the Legislature, the
38 days of the Legislature go by
quickly. I’ve spent many days prior
to the start of this Session serving
on the Governor’s Criminal Justice
Task Initiative Task Force which
will be bringing forth legislation in
this Session to improve our justice
system by providing for increases
in drug and alcohol courts. The
focus here is to help people recover,
not put them in prison. Last week,
I testified in front of the Joint Ap-
propriations Committee and let my
voice show support for this attempt
to help reduce the numbers of in-
mates in our prisons and provide
treatment for those who suffer
from addictions. On Friday, Janu-
ary 18, I again testified in front of
the Senate State Affairs Commit-
tee where it passed unanimously.
Earlier this week I attended
briefings on the proposed Medicaid
expansion, which I support. Medi-
caid is one of the largest healthcare
insurers in South Dakota. Most of
the people covered in our state
under Medicaid are children. In
fact, 69 percent of the current Med-
icaid recipients are children and 31
percent are adults. Disabled adults
and low income parents qualify for
Medicaid. Many of our nursing
home residents qualify for Medi-
caid. The Affordable Care Act al-
lows the states to expand coverage
to those adults who qualify if they
are at 138 percent of the poverty
level. Children are already covered
whether or not we expand Medi-
caid.
The population affected by the
expansion would be South Dakota’s
working poor who do not typically
receive health insurance through
their employer. If states choose to
expand Medicaid, the federal gov-
ernment will cover 100 percent of
the costs from 2014 to 2016. The
feds’ contribution will begin to de-
crease in 2017, but will never be
less than 90 percent, under the
ACA. This expansion would bring
close to $200 million federal dollars
to South Dakota to care for those in
need, make our citizens healthier,
and keep them out of more expen-
sive emergency care. Arizona re-
cently announced that they will
provide the Medicaid Expansion to
their citizens.

Plague Affecting
Prairie Dog Populations?
With much of the snow melting,
and labeling of the chemical prod-
ucts registered for prairie dogs al-
lowing use for some time yet, some
opportunity remains this winter
for control. Before initiating chem-
ical control measures however,
landowners would be advised to
make sure prairie dog towns are
active.
Several recent news stories
have relayed the incidence of syl-
vatic plague, the term assigned to
cover all forms of plague in wild
animals, which is affecting prairie
dogs in various locations across the
United States. Sylvatic plague is
believed to have been introduced
into the North American prairie
ecosystem around 1899, and was
first documented in a prairie dog
colony near Lubbock, Texas, in
1946. A 1999 article states that
plague has been active in black-
tailed prairie dog populations in
the northern Great Plains only
within the last decade although it
has been present for much longer.
One source states that few if
any healthy prairie dog complexes
currently exist in the Southern
Plains within the United States.
Another article states that sylvatic
plague was first detected in South
Dakota in 2004, and has since
been confirmed on the Fort Pierre
National Grassland, the Buffalo
Gap National Grasslands, in Bad-
lands National Park and on the
Lower Brule Indian Reservation in
South Dakota. Other reports indi-
cate that the plague may be affect-
ing prairie dogs on private land as
well.
In cases where people have con-
tracted the disease, it is usually re-
ferred to as bubonic plague. When
people contract the disease, it is
usually from coming in contact
with an infected rodent (such as a
rat, a squirrel, or a prairie dog) or
their fleas. Before the advent of
modern medicine, bubonic plague
struck the human population in
epidemic proportions every few
centuries. Today, improved sanita-
tion practices and modern insecti-
cides and antibiotics have reduced
the threat of plague epidemics in
developed countries like the
United States. According to an ar-
ticle in late-November 2012, there
had not been any confirmed cases
of the plague in people in South
Dakota as of that time.
Although it is said to be a rare
occurrence, humans can contract
the plague. Modern antibiotics are
effective against plague, but treat-
ment must begin promptly. Symp-
toms include swollen and tender
lymph glands accompanied by
fever, chills, headache and ex-
treme exhaustion. Although hu-
mans contracting the plague is
said to be rare, it only makes sense
to take precautions. People are ad-
vised to keep themselves and their
pets flea-free and away from
plagued areas. If you are working
in or around a prairie dog town,
take steps to minimize your expo-
sure.

Excavation work of
Farm Credit Services of America
continues its commitment to sup-
port youth in agriculture by en-
couraging participation in Future
Farmers of America. Farm Credit
Services of America donated funds
to the District V FFA.
The district used the money to
host the first annual Rushmore
Leadership Roundup. District V
FFA consists of members from FFA
chapters in Philip, Kadoka, Wall,
Lemmon, Bison, Harding County,
Eagle Butte, Newell, Sturgis and

“Farm Credit Services of Amer-
ica is pleased to make this invest-
ment in the youth of tomorrow’s
agriculture,” stated Doug Theel,
vice president of the Rapid City
marketplace. “The future of agri-
culture lies within its youth. That
is why Farm Credit Services of
America is so heavily involved in
FFA, 4-H and other local, state and
national agricultural youth pro-
grams.”
Students at the Rushmore Lead-
ership Roundup participated in a
local Leadership Career Develop-
ment Event before advancing onto
the district level for competition.
Students competed in eight differ-
ent areas including job interview,
agriculture sales, public speaking,
parliamentary procedure, ag
broadcasting, extemporaneous
speaking, junior parliamentary
procedure and creed speaking.
Farm Credit Services of America
is proud to finance the growth of
rural America, including the spe-
cial needs of young and beginning
producers. With over 76,500 cus-
tomers, assets of $13 billion, and a

Agriculture and its related in-
dustries provided a $21.408 billion
dollar impact on the economy of
South Dakota in 2010, according to
an article written by Gary Taylor,
associate professor of economics at
South Dakota State University.
The article describes the impact
agriculture production and process-
ing has on the economy of South
Dakota. According to Taylor's arti-
cle, production agriculture’s direct
effect on the South Dakota econ-
omy was $8.335 billion.
“The $8.335 billion represents
the value of products produced. Ad-
ditional impacts of $3.417 billion
results from businesses supplying
inputs and induced effects of in-
creased household spending are
$1.647 billion bringing the total to
$13.399 billion for production agri-
culture,” Taylor said.
Taylor said that value added
agriculture added $8.009 billion in
economic activity.
“This economic activity is from
manufacturing/processing indus-
tries that can be clearly identified
as being related to agriculture,”
Taylor said. “Ethanol, animal har-
vest, cheese and feed manufactur-
ing accounted for approximately 84
percent of the value added impact.”
In the article, Taylor writes that
agriculture remains a significant
contributor to the total economic
activity generated in the state of
South Dakota.
“The total impact of $21.408 bil-
lion makes the agricultural sector
the largest single sector of the
South Dakota economy, at approx-
imately 19.8 percent of total out-
put,” he said.

Saturday, January 12, at Somer-
set Court, we had an afternoon
game session. First, Mike Kilmer
came to play piano for us. Thank
you, Mike. Mary Gaffney and
Susan and I danced a little circle
dance. Later, we had a table of
whist with Irene Arbach, Floy,
Mary Lou and Shirley Hodgson.
Shirley had played bridge and they
hoper her expertise would transfer
to whist. Susan was there to coach.
Addie, Agnes, Irene Cox and Vivian
had a table of rummi-cube.
M.R. Hansen stopped in on his
way home from Chamberlain
where he had been to a meeting.
He reported that Interstate 90 was
open, but with a little blowing snow
and icy patches. He said he was
going home to make some bean
soup. I hope he brings me some!
Welcome to Ida Lutz, a new resi-
dent at Somerset Court. She joins
her husband, Bill, who has been
here a couple of weeks.
I phoned my son, Hans P.
Hansen, in Colorado Springs. He
was out for a walk, (at a cool 16 de-
grees) but he phoned when he got
back to Spruce House. At Spruce
House they made him a cake for his
birthday, which was January 6.
They made him a fruit cake as per
his request. One of his friends on
the staff who works there is plan-
ning to name her baby Levi. Hans
painted him a card with “Happy
Birthday, Levi” and Hans also
painted a picture of a pair of infant
Levis on it. Baby Levi is expected
around January 28.
Hans called to say that our old
neighbor, Elvire (Harnish) Moos
was in our Cecile Marie’s PHS
class of 1961. Hans had a Christ-
mas card from Sandra, (Mrs. Bill)
O’Connor. Hans sometimes sees
Dianee (Burnett) Volk, daughter of
Richard and Jeannette Burnett,
our Philip neighbors just down the
street at the foot of “Hook” hill.
What makes America great? It is
the people who go to work at their
jobs, both little and big, and do
their best every day. And remem-
ber that “The finest things in life
are the friends along the way.”
One Upon A Dream
by Ken Monette
As the light goes out
and the day is done
one falls asleep
and dreams do come.
You can travel for miles
and visit old friends
or bring to your mind
the places you’ve been.
There are smiles and laughter
and sadness and tears
but the ones we bring back
are the ones we hold dear.
It is nice to wake up
with dreams still fresh
of loves we have lost
or have just left the nest.
Sometimes during the night
dreams are a treat
the troubles of life seem
to take a back seat.
You dream when you laugh
and there times when you’ve cried,
but they are all expressions
of the child inside.
And, yes there’s a child
in everyone’s mind
that sometimes in anger
can sound very unkind.
But, if the dreams that we cherish,
the good ones I mean,
that looks back on the love,
of all that we have seen.

Sunday, January 13, 2013, we
had church with Rev. Richardson.
Mrs. Richardson came along to sing
and Jack Humke played for us to
sing hymns. Thanks to all of them.
Rev. Richardson gave us sugges-
tions. Why not make New Year’s
solutions. Instead of resolutions.
Call up somebody you don’t like
much and lay the groundwork for
some better feelings. Pray for bet-
ter interpretations of the Bible.
Give up on grudges and get busy
trying to do whatever it is God
wants us to do. We must be here for
some reason. Let us try to figure
out what it is and do it. Those at-
tending church were Lucille
Huether, Irma Brandt, Floy Olson,
Charlie Hathaway, Virginia Gray,
Marilyn B., Marilyn O., Connie
Stevens, Don Stensgaard, Shirley
Hodgson, Grace Tillery, Maxine
Kilmer and Vivian Hansen.
My great-granddaughter,
Melissa (Butcher) Snively, Gillette,
Wyo., wrote and sent pictures of
two-year-old Teagan with her mini-
tramp. (It has a safety bar.) There
is another photo of Teagan opening
a Christmas gift. Melissa and Tea-
gan and a friend of Melissa’s are
planning to come to Rapid City
January 31. Maybe we can get
Carol and Al, Colorado Springs, to
come up for that weekend and we
can celebrate Carol’s February 2,
birthday.
The Rapid City Journal of Janu-
ary 13, 2013, had the obituary of
Clifford Ramsey, Philip. My sym-
pathy to friends and family.
Sunday, I made some playdough.
Remember how much fun it is to
make things out of playdough?
Good for keeping our fingers lim-
ber, too. The cooks at Somerset
Court kitchen gave me some flour,
salt, cream of tarter, cooking oil
and food coloring. Thank you very
much. The playdough turned out
good and it was easy to make. You
don’t cook it, just warm the liquids
a little.
Thank you to Leonard and Jean
Meyer for your weekly letter and
the marvelous pictures of camou-
flaged animals. Leonard and Jean
are home and both recuperating
from recent illnesses.
Granddaughter Crystal Jackson
wrote, “It is a nice, crisp and sunny
day here in Huntington Beach. The
leaves have almost all fallen off the
deciduous trees and the pine trees
and alders are getting catkins
again.
The local mountains have snow.
It has been chilly with Santa Ana
winds in the 20 to 50 mile per hour
range. Depending on where one is,
and it is dry, dry, dry! But of
course, that means clear and beau-
tiful, if one has a nice warm
sweater.
I have seedlings coming up in my
nursery trays. I was coddling along
the “mystery” seed tray and getting
nice vigorous plants and now that
they are about six weeks old, I dis-
covered that two of them are kochia
weeds! Bah! Several are carna-
tions, so that is good. One is a cal-
endula.
The oxalis is in bloom and the
low places are covered in bright
yellow when the sun is shining. I
learned last week that one can use
oxalis to make cyanotypes toned
with orange, so I went last evening
and procured a bunch of flowers,
and today I will make up some so-
lution and see what I get.
Citrus is in high season. We had
a frost warning last night but I
think things came thru okay, at
least in this area. I do not know
how the Central Valley faired. I
have a bumper crop of satsuma
tangerines at my disposal, the ones
with the easy to peel skins. And
lemons. I should take the time to
can a few today.
Both kids are heavily back into
the school term. They should both
graduate with bachelor in science
in June.”
Monday, January 14, 2013, at
Somerset Court, we had some re-
ally tasty Mexican dishes, refried
beans, Spanish rice, and lasagna or
tacos. We had the activity of crafts
with Amy. We colored pictures that
were printed on black cards. Resi-
dents coloring were Agnes, Marilyn
O., Eileen, Irene Cox, Mildred
Young and her helper Kay, Fred
Smith, Mary Lou Peters, Shirley
Hodgson and visiting angel, Doris,
Marcella and Vivian. There were
gold fissh, “Dreams,” a garden
scene, birds, and guitars. They
turned out pretty and artistic-look-
ing. Thank you, Amy.
Alvin Ellerton, (Sherman’s
brother) is moving in next door to
Sherman. This is where Larry
Solano used to live. We hope you
like it here, Alvin.
My granddaughter, Patty Denke,
Ph.D., Belgrade, Mont., writes that
she is doing some painting and has
sold some of her work. Thank you
for your letter and photos, Patty. I
have always admired her artistic
ability.
My niece, Alma (Hulett)
Schilling, Redfield, writes a pretty
card with a verse, “Remembering
without ceasing your work of faith,
and labor and love.” 1 Thessaloni-
ans 1:3. Alma enclosed some Wash-
ington, D.C. cherry blossom
stamps. How lovely. Thank you,
Alma. She quotes my mother, Effie
Palmer, “A wish is kind of like a
prayer.”

Tuesday, January 15, at Somer-
set Court, Susan and Sandy gave
us the activity of ping-pong poker
with a good bunch participating.
Irene Arbach won both games, once
with a pair of queens and one with
a full house. Congratulations.
At Tuesday bingo with Sandy
calling the numbers and Amy and
Susan helping with hospitality,
winners were Marilyn Oyler, three
times, Marcella, Lucille, Marge
Self, twice, and Jim Hilton. For
snack and chat there were ice
cream sundaes with strawberry
syrup. Thank you for these activi-
ties.
On third floor at Somerset Court
where some courtyard plants are
overwintering, there are two sweet
pea blossoms and Charlie and
Joanne Hathaway’s butterfly bush
is budding.
At 9:00 a.m., when I was just
snuggling down for a nap, Chuck
Allen called from Philip that there
was two feet of water in the base-
ment of my Philip house. I couldn’t
think of who to call, so I called the
Pioneer Review and they helped
me to call the city office and West
Central Electric and all responded
immediately. The Philip Volunteer
Fire Department with Marty and
Jesse Hansen and Matt Reckling
pumped the water out (more than
three feet). Someone had called my
son, David Hansen, Ft. Pierre, and
he dropped all his projects and
drove out to Philip and he knew
how to fix the pipes. He found the
needed pipe repairs at Ingram
Hardware. By working together,
the problem was soon under con-
trol. All the workers have my fer-
vent thanks.
Tuesday evening, January 15, at
Somerset Court, the Boy’s Club
boys with leaders, Phil Martin and
Mark Kline, came to play bingo
with residents. The boys were
Kyler Kelly, Elijah Huffman, Brax-
ton Short, Alec Waters, Mahki Hol-
low Horn, and Sam Loud Hawk.
This is quite a social time. Each
table has a boy or two to carry
cards up for checking and to pass
prizes to winners. Each game has
three winners, and we played eight
games. The Club for Boys bring
bags of candy for prizes. After the
games, Sandy brought cookies
around. Thanks to the Boy’s Club
and to our activity directors.
Wednesday was also the day for
Bible study, whist, rummi-cube,
fully fit and pool.

With colder temperatures often
come runny noses, sore throats and
unfortunately, the flu. Families
across South Dakota who are try-
ing to get back into a normal rou-
tine following the holidays may not
have taken the time to ensure that
kids and parents alike are vacci-
nated for the flu this season.
This week, South Dakota was
moved into the “widespread” flu
classification by the United States
Center for Disease Control and
Prevention, leading hospitals and
businesses to take extra precau-
tions. In total, 11 South Dakotans
have died from the flu and the
state has reported almost 600 cases
of flu so far this season.
It’s time to take the flu seriously.
I encourage all South Dakotans to
not only get vaccinated, but to stay
home from work or school if you
have symptoms, such as a cough or
fever. The typical incubation period
for the flu is an average of two days
and adults can be infectious for a
week, starting with the day before
symptoms began. Children can be
contagious for even longer.
Flu vaccines protect individuals
from the three flu strains predicted
to be most popular that season.
While the vaccine is still the best
way to prevent the flu, antiviral
drugs can also be a strong line of
defense, as well as common sense
health habits, such as covering a
cough and consistent hand wash-
ing. South Dakota has the highest
vaccination rate in the country –
with over half of our population re-
ceiving the vaccine during the
2011-2012 flu season! In fact,
South Dakota received the Adult
Immunization Coverage Award
from the CDC in 2012.
I encourage South Dakotans to
look at information provided by the
South Dakota Department of
Health or contact a local health
care provider if you have any addi-
tional questions or concerns re-
garding the flu vaccine.

Dakota’s lone Uunited States Rep-
resentative. She serves on the Agri-
culture and Armed Services Com-
mittees.
Fighting the flu
by Senator John Thune
Since President Obama took of-
fice in 2009, an additional 15 mil-
lion Americans have been added to
the food stamp rolls.
This trend has continued despite
economic indicators coming from
his administration that suggest the
number of Americans out of work
and enrolling in government safety
net programs should be on the de-
cline.
The most recent food stamp par-
ticipation numbers paint a very
troubling picture of the United
States economy. According to the
latest statistics released on Janu-
ary 4 by the Department of Agri-
culture, the number of Americans
enrolled in the Supplemental Nu-
trition Assistance Program, com-
monly referred to as food stamps,
has spiked to nearly 48 million peo-
ple, or nearly 15 percent of the
United States population. Food
stamp enrollment has increased by
more than 607,000 just since the
last report was published in De-
cember of 2012.
The enrollment of such a large
number of Americans in the food
stamp program has come at an ex-
tremely high cost to taxpayers.
Last year alone the United States
government spent a record $80.4
billion on food stamps, and is pro-
jected to spend an estimated $770
billion over the next 10 years.
With nearly one out of every
seven people using food stamps,
lawmakers should be carefully re-
viewing the rapid increase in en-
rollment and finding answers to
important questions, such as: are
these benefits being provided to
those who need it most; should the
list of eligible food stamp products
be modified; and does this program
encourage independence or does it
instead create an ongoing depend-
ency on government programs?
In December of 2012, I, along
with Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.),
sent a letter to Wendy Spencer,
chief executive officer for the Cor-
poration for National and Commu-
nity Service (CNCS), a government
entity responsible for matching
government paid volunteers with
local community service organiza-
tions. Our letter outlined our con-
cerns that current CNCS policies
and promotional materials may be
encouraging the exploitation of
food stamps by paid CNCS volun-
teers, resulting in unnecessary food
stamp participation.
While this is just one example of
the fraud and abuse that plagues
this system, if a federal agency
such as CNCS is able to exploit the
benefits of another federal pro-
gram, it is difficult to predict just
how far and widespread fraud and
abuse may reach.
It is time for Congress to engage
in a meaningful discussion about
how to best reduce poverty and ex-
pand upward mobility for all Amer-
icans, and take decisive action to
achieve this goal. Congress must
strike a balance to ensure that we
protect our country’s most vulner-
able and those who legitimately
need assistance while also cutting
federal spending, reprioritizing fed-
eral programs, and eliminating
waste, fraud, and abuse. As Con-
gress prepares to address our na-
tion’s overall federal spending, I
will continue to advocate for com-
mon sense reforms to our nation’s
safety net programs that will im-
prove America’s social, fiscal and
economic health.

Earl Moe______________________
Earl Moe, 89, Fulton, S.D., died
Wednesday, January 16, 2013, at
the Rapid City Regional Hospital.
Earl Grant Moe was born June
28, 1923, to Chester and Myrl
(Peck) north of Alexandria. He was
the second of six children.
Earl graduated from Alexandria
High School in 1940 with honors.
He graduated from the University
of South Dakota with a four-year
degree in business and finance,
which he accomplished in two
years. He was a member of Delta
Sigma Theta and Delta Sigma Pi
fraternities.
He married Margaret Blakeslee
December 18, 1948, at Council
Bluffs, Iowa. Out of college he
began work for Burroughs Office
Equipment. He was a salesman
with Burroughs’s until 1952. At
that time, he returned to the farm.
He owned and operated one of the
largest livestock operations at the
time in Miner County. Later, the
farm became incorporated as Moe
Land & Cattle Co. which he and
his son, Roy Allen operated. In
1998 Earl retired.
He was a member of the Fulton
Methodist Church. Earl was ex-
tremely active during his life and
was proud of his many 4-H activi-
ties in his youth and later as a 4-H
leader. He served on the Miner
County School Board from 1952-
1958, and was a 32 degree Mason,
a member of the Yankton Scottish
Rite, Eastern Star, El Riad Shrine
and Corn Palace Shrine Club, and
the Grand Lodge of Masons of
South Dakota. He established
scholarships at Hanson High
School and the School of Business
at the University of South Dakota.
He is survived by his wife of 64
years, Margaret, of Mitchell; a son,
Walter Moe and wife, Bonita, of
Rapid City; a daughter, Cheri
Heeb and husband, Dean, of Mid-
land; six grandchildren and three
great-granddaughters.
Earl was preceded in death by
his parents; a son, Roy Allen Moe;
one brother, Roy Moe and one sis-
ter, Ethel Williams.
Services were held January 22,
2013, at the First United
Methodist Church, Mitchell. Bur-
ial will be in Graceland Cemetery,
Fulton.
Marvin McDaniel________________
Marvin McDaniel, age 54, of
Casper, Wyo., formerly of Philip,
S.D., died Saturday, January 19,
2013, at the Wyoming Medical
Center in Casper.
Marvin Fred McDaniel was born
August 2, 1958, in Philip, the son
of Fred Q. and Beverly I. (Mc-
Clure) McDaniel. He grew up in
Philip, graduating from Philip
High School in 1976.
While in high school, Marvin
worked for Jack Hansen at his fur
plant. After graduation, Marvin
worked for Dorothy Brothers,
where he worked on vehicles. Mar-
vin then attended Mitchell Vo-
Tech, where he earned his electri-
cian’s license. He moved to
Wyoming where he served as an
apprentice, journeyman, and later
as a master electrician for various
mining companies.
Marvin has made his home in
Casper for a number of years, but
always looked forward to coffee at
Rich Smith’s, when he made it
home to the ranch near Philip.
Marvin was a hard worker, and
able to fix anything that needed re-
pairs. Marvin also became quite a
gardener, and enjoyed canning his
produce he raised. He will be
greatly missed by his family and
friends.
Survivors include his mother,
Beverly McDaniel of Quinn; three
sisters, Kerry Wahlquist and her
husband, Peter, of Las Vegas,
Nev., Kathy McDaniel of Rapid
City, and Patricia Hauk and her
husband, Phillip, of Piedmont; a
nephew, Sean Wahlquist, and a
niece, Kersey Wahlquist, both of
Las Vegas; and a host of other rel-
atives and friends.
Marvin was preceded in death
by his father, Fred McDaniel, on
April 6, 2005.
Memorial services will be held at
2:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 2,
at the American Legion Hall in
Philip, with Pastor Frezil Wester-
lund officiating.
Interment will be at the Masonic
Cemetery in Philip.
Arrangements are with the
Rush Funeral Home of Philip.
His online guestbook is available
at www.rushfuneralhome.com.
John McInnis___________________
John McInnis, age 67, of Pierre,
S.D., died Tuesday, January 22,
2013, at the Ft. Meade VA Medical
Center.
Survivors include two brothers,
Robert McInnis and his wife, Beth,
of Mesa, Ariz., and Patrick McIn-
nis; two sisters, Marie Lamm of
Philip and Darlene Treib and her
husband, Sam, of Orofino, Idaho;
numerous nieces and nephews and
a host of other relatives and
friends.
John was preceded in death by
this mother, Orma McInnis ,and
his father, Alpine McInnis; two sis-
ters, LaVonne McInnis, as a child,
and Lillian Reimer; and two broth-
ers, Albert and Dale McInnis.
Funeral services are pending
with Rush Funeral Home of Philip.
A complete obituary will appear
in next week’s edition.
I gathered up my notes for the
news this morning, Monday, Janu-
ary 21, and the weather was 19˚
with a skiff of about two inches of
snow, real fluffy stuff. I could
sweep it off the porch and sidewalk
with a broom. It does make one
hopeful that we may get some
moisture this year.
Lee Schoniger and Gloria French
enjoyed supper and the play at
Milesville Friday night.
Julie and Gary Nixon have been
enjoying their daughter, Kelly
Weinzettl, and granddaughters,
Allie and Abbie, during some of
their vacation. They all attended
the Milesville play Saturday
evening. I was surprised to see how
their grandchildren had grown.
They are young ladies now and are
very nice looking.
Martin and Vera Nelson and
Larry and Charlotte Gabriel were
also enjoying the Milesville play
Saturday evening. My grand-
daughter, Christa, who was in the
play, had a large attendance of her
family to see the play Saturday
evening: Rick Johnsons, Ridge San-
dal, Rita, Bart, Marcy, Doug and
Phyllis Ramsey and Gary Ramsey,
Burjes and Cheryl Fitch, Michael
and Tanya Peterson and family,
Truett and Dani Fitch and kids,
Marvin, Vicki and Mary Eide, and
Carla Eide, Kiley and Taegan. The
weather cooperated for all three
days of the play. I heard that it was
a lot nicer than last year’s weather.
We did not go just to see Christa
as many of us always attend the
Milesville plays which are always
very good. This play was sold out
both Friday and Saturday nights.
It was a very enjoyable play and as
it is said, “That to laugh is healthy
for you.” We should have enough
stored up from going to that play,
to last a long time.
Jack and Nadine (Brech, Sieler)
Kasper have gone south for the
winter and were not here to spend
the holidays this year. Minnie
Brech has been in the Philip hospi-
tal and I am sure that she would
enjoy some cards to help pass the
time. She also had a birthday re-
cently.
It was sad to hear the news that
Marvin McDaniel passed away.
Our sympathy goes out to his
mother, Bev, and family. He grew
up in this community, about a mile
from the Grindstone Hall.
Sympathy also goes out to the
family of Arnold Wolden, a person
who touched many lives. He was
one of the first people that I knew
after I was married and came back
here to live. We did a lot of seed
business with him and attended
many dances at the Grindstone
Hall where he and Virginia came to
dance. He was a very good dancer
and new all the old-time dance
steps. He spent a lot of time at the
local nursing home visiting just to
make a better day for them.
Carla Eide came home for the fu-
neral of her granddad, Cliff Ram-
sey. Carla and her kids, who were
here staying with their grandpar-
ents, Marvin and Vicki, stayed for
the play at Milesville. The kids did
not have to return to school until
after the Martin Luther King holi-
day. They get a lot of time off from
school. They also have a five-day a
week school and don’t get out until
late June. Carla and the kids left
early Saturday morning while
roads were good and they arrived
home safely.
Today, Monday, is the inaugura-
tion of the president for his second
term of office. I have not watched
any of it. It will be on the news sev-
eral times as they replay things
over and over. I do like to watch the
ball just to see the pretty dresses.
I will bring this to a close, as I
was unable to find anyone home
when I called. Everyone is so busy
coming and going that it is hard to
catch them at home.
“If you want children to keep
their feet on the ground, put some
responsibility on their shoulders.”
Abigal Van Buren
And yea fathers, provoke not you
children to wrath; but bring them
up in the nurture and admonition
of the Lord – Ephesians 6:4

ters, Jenna Finn and Megan Hoff-

last Friday to visit Theresa's

proved. Other family members had

and there was much visiting and
talking about past good times. The
ladies returned Sunday afternoon.

among the many people attending

After two weeks of no Midland
News, I am back at the keyboard.
Sunday, January 6,
started out with good intentions, as
we headed out for Canistota. We
stopped in Mitchell having lunch
with our son, Christopher,
Stephanie and Laura. Monday
morning, we had treatments, I
worked on my Midland News col-
umn, and that evening we headed
for the Canistota gym for the boys’
basketball game between Mitchell
Christian and Canistota, as our
son, Christopher, is assistant coach
for Mitchell Christian. In the
meantime, I had called the Pioneer
Review, letting them know my lap-
top was not working, so there
would be no Midland News that
week, fully intending to have Mid-
land News the following week. But,
I must not get ahead of myself
here. Tuesday evening, Jerry and
I headed for Mitchell, as Mitchell
Christian had a basketball game
with Corsica-Stickney. Plus, it
gave us another chance to see that
grandbaby. Following our treat-
ments at the clinic Thursday, we
headed for home. Saturday morn-
ing, I woke up with a horrible
cough, Sunday it was worse, and
Monday morning we called the doc-
tor. Thank goodness for the Philip
clinic, as the trip to Philip was long
enough. I am happy to report, I am
feeling much better and it’s now
time to get at the Midland News.
Though Christmas is some past,
I will begin my column, reporting
on folks’ Christmas, as it is their
family Christmas news. Before I
begin, I just wanted to comment on
the nice article in Golden West
magazine on the Ortman Clinic of
Canistota.
Christmas Day guests at the
home of Ronnie and Emily Sam-
mons were Corinne and Mitch Nor-
man, Tanner and Elana Norman
and family, Blake and Randi Nor-
man and family, Ty and Tara Nor-
man and family, Mark and Kris
Sammons and her daughter, Teri
Lambert, and friend, and Casey
and Katie Sammons and family.
Ronnie Bill Sammons had planned
on coming, but, due to weather con-
ditions, he was unable to make it.
Thursday, following Christmas,
Ronnie and Emily visited at the
home of his sister, Arlyne and Billy
Markwed, having a chance to see
their new cabin and T.J. Gabriel’s
new, big barn, which was being put
to good use, as calving had begun.
Billy and Arlyne’s daughter, Kim
Marso, was there, so they had a
chance to visit with her as well.
Visiting at the home of Ronnie
and Emily January 6, were Jenny
and John Hopper and their daugh-
ter, Laura, of the Sydney, Australia
area. Emily’s cousin’s daughter,
JoAnn (Cacek) Scherer, also from
Australia, is a sister to Virginia
(Cacek) Blom. JoAnn and Vir-
ginia’s dad, Adolph Cacek, was a
brother to Emily’s mom, Emma
Rauch. I met Emma one particular
summer when she and my mom,
Olga Meyers, were both attending
summer school at Black Hills State
College at Spearfish. What a char-
acter. Told it like it was. If you did-
n’t like it, that was your problem.
Some people come into your lives
and leave footprints. Emma was
one of those people.
Ronnie and Emily were in
Pierre, Sunday, January 20, to the
AAU youth wrestling tournament
of which their great-grandson, Colt
Norman, took part in. Colt is the
son of Tanner and Elana Norman
and the grandson of Mitch and
Corinne Norman. Our neighbor
boy, Tukker, son of Tyler and Angel
Nemec, was also in the wrestling
tournament.
Our sincere sympathies to the
family of Maxine Norman who re-
cently passed away.
December 22, Cassidy Trapp
hosted a birthday party for Gene
(Snook) Hudson at the home of her
grandparents, Jerry and Joy Jones.
Those at the party besides Cassidy,
Jerry and Joy were Dick and Gene
Hudson, Judy Daly, Mike and Deb-
bie (Jones) Trapp and family, Cody
and Audrey Jones, and Scott and
Lani (Jones) Olson and Molly, who
were there from Devil’s Lake, N.D.
Belated happy birthday greetings,
Gene.
Trinity Lutheran Church had
their church Christmas program on
December 23, but not their candle
lighting service, so Jerry and Joy
Jones, Lani and Cassidy went to
Deep Creek Church for their candle
lighting service Sunday, December
23.
The evening of December 24,
Jerry and Joy hosted their family
Christmas get-together with all of
their children and families there
for the traditional oyster stew sup-
per, along with other goodies.
Those there were Jodie and Bob
Schrempp and Baxter, Dupree,
Debbie and Mike Trapp and family,
Cindy and Russ Sinkey and Zak,
Lani and Scott Olson and Molly,
Neil Jones and Cody and Audrey
Jones. Christmas morning, eight-
year-old Molly woke everyone up to
see what Santa had left during the
night. There was breakfast brunch
at Jerry and Joy’s and around 2:00
o’clock everyone shared Christmas
dinner together.
December 28, Scott, Lani, and
Molly left for Keene, N.D., to spend
New Years with Scott’s side of the
family. New Year’s Day Joy Jones,
Cassidy and Emily Trapp and Zak
Sinkey spent the day with Jodie,
Bob, and Baxter Schrempp. Mon-
day, January 7, a party was held at
the home of Jerry and Joy for their
granddaughter, Cassidy Trapp’s,
19th birthday. January 10, Cassidy
headed back to Rapid City for the
second semester of classes at
School of Mines.
Don and Nancy Smith, Kimber-
ley and Carly, Bellevue, Neb.,
spent from Saturday night to
Wednesday of Christmas week at
the Shorty Jones home. Attending
church and visiting Matthew, Bri-
anna and Jordyn, spending Christ-
mas Day in Rapid City with Ross,
Melanie, Cassie and Kalli Jones
filled the time. Others going to
Rapid City were Scott and Jana
Jones, Lexi Jones, Barry Jones and
Maxine and Shorty. Bryer Jones
went to Lovington, N.M., for
Christmas.
Smiths went home Wednesday,
and on Friday, flew to Seattle,
Wash., to visit with friends from
their days living in Belle Fourche
and visited Angie (Daly) Blanusa
and family, who also live in Seat-
tle.
Shorty and Maxine attended the
funeral service for Linda Hook in
Wall, then made a quick trip to
Rapid City and also attended the
basketball game between Philip
and Murdo in the evening.
Judy Daly met granddaughter
Jalene Nemec, Knoxville, Tenn., at
the Rapid City airport January 10.
Jalene is also our granddaughter
and had planned on coming to our
place for a visit, but with me being
sick we all decided that may not be
a good thing. Was sorry to miss see-
ing her, but had a good visit by
phone. Saturday, Judy and Jalene
went to Philip having cake and ice
cream with Marie Anderson at the
Silverleaf for her 94th birthday.
Wayne and April Anderson and
their daughter, Tasha, came from
Rapid City and Marie’s nephew,
Duane Roseth, was also there.
Tasha and Jalene are the same
age. Weather conditions were not
good on Saturday, so some folks
didn’t make it for the party. Happy
belated birthday wishes, Marie.
Judy took Jalene to the airport to
head back home Sunday. She ar-
rived home to pouring rain, nine
inches in all, which later became
icy and then snow began coming
down. Knoxville folks are not used
to driving in those conditions and
we saw on TV where there were a
number of accidents.
Pastor Andy and Jennifer Blye
and boys were in Kansas recently
to the funeral service of his grand-
mother. Our sincere sympathies to
the family. Pastor Andy is pastor of
the Open Bible Church in Midland.
Sunday, Pat Snook, Judy Daly
and Audrey Jones attended the
Milesville play. Reports are it was
very good. Last Wednesday, Gene
and Audrey Jones went to Pierre
meeting their daughter, Julie
Jones-Whitcher, who was there for
the governor’s tourism conference,
taking her out to supper.
Jerry and I visited by phone re-
cently with Leo and Betty (Standi-
ford) Nemec, Little Fork, Minn.
They live up in cold country, some
30 miles from the Canadian border.
Betty recently retired from North-
ern Timberline Equipment where
she has worked for the past 13
years. She doesn’t lack for some-
thing to do. She and Leo have eight
grown children, some living close
by, so go to the grandkids basket-
ball games etc. With both she and
Leo retired, they are enjoying some
reading of books, as well. Espe-
cially on those cold winter days.
Five of their children and families
made it home for Christmas. Their
son, Ben, his wife, Dana, and their
three children live in Mineral, Va.,
and came home for a visit around
the Fourth of July. While on their
way, they got a call from Dana’s
sister telling them a bad thunder-
storm with strong winds had blown
down a huge oak tree onto their
house. They were in the state of
Wisconsin when they got the call
and it would be a three-day drive to
get back home. Dana’s sister en-
couraged them to continue on to
Ben’s folks. Dana and her husband
would get hold of the insurance
company for them and would see to
it the roof damage was covered
with huge plastic, and would clean
up what needed to be cleaned up.
So, Ben and Dana drove on to Leo
and Betty’s and enjoyed their time
there, knowing things were being
taken care of back home. Their
home has been repaired and they
were able to move back in over
Christmas. That is good news.
Senior Citizens Meet
The senior citizens met at the
center on January 7, 2013, for their
monthly meeting with 10 members
present. President Kandus Woitte
called the meeting to order and led
in the flag salute.
The minutes of the last meeting
were read and approved. The trea-
surer’s report was given. Beth
Flom moved to approve the report
and George Stroppel approved and
motion passed.
No cards were sent. The bulletin
board was done. Maintenance
cleaned up after the parties. We
discussed whether to try to sell the
gas tank which we no longer use.
Meeting was adjourned and cards
played. Lunch was served.
Mickey Woitte, secretary
It is Tuesday morning and the
sun is shining. I do like that sun-
shine. Lifts ones spirits on a cold
winter’s day. It is that time of year
when folks are busy going to bas-
ketball games. It is that time of
year when folks are busy with play
practice for those local community
plays. It is that time of year to
work on those income tax reports.
And so, life continues to be busy.
As I close my news column for this
week, I leave you with a bit from an
Amish newspaper. “The shop-
keeper was dismayed when a
brand new business, much like his
own, opened up next door and
erected a huge sign which read best
deals. He was horrified when an-
other competitor opened up on his
other side and announced his ar-
rival with an even larger sign,
reading lowest prices. The shop-
keeper was panicked, until he got
an idea. He put the biggest sign of
all over his own shop – it read main
entrance.” A bit of common sense
thinking can do amazing things.
Let us continue to pray for our
leaders as they go into the next
four years. Have a good day, a good
week, and stay warm and healthy.
Look who’s 50!
Wish
Mike Stroppel
a Happy 50th on January 25th!

J.W. Shields, 65, well known to
Philip as traveling representative
and part owner of the Educator

Monday morning in a Vermillion

last Wednesday. Mr. Shields was a

Harry C. Schofield of Midland
was announced Tuesday as winner
in the statewide rattlesnake killing
contest. Prize money totaling $30
was donated by an unnamed per-
son and rattles were submitted to
the state game and fish depart-
ment in Pierre. Schofields winning
total of 324 rattles was far in ex-
cess of the number entered by any
other individual.
Asked how he managed to get so
many, he would laugh and relate
that his long residence on the
prairie had made him pretty well
acquainted with the habits of the
poisonous snakes.
“Why,” he said, “I used to kill rat-
tlesnakes for all my kids to cut
their teeth on.” And the listener
who was acquainted with Mr.
Schofield’s family knew that was
no idle boast, because there were
fourteen children.
The first ice skating casualty this

sprawling face down. Stitches were
required to close the wound.

our shack. Done some odd jobs

Laurenz, awarded Miss Sturgis.
Konst had been recruited to
enter this pageant after the direc-
tors observed her at a cheer/dance
competition with the Central High
School Competitive Cheer and
Dance Team. This was her first
pageant. Konst won overall best
talent with a hip-hop dance routine
she choreographed herself.
Konst and Llera-Maxon are
among those who will advance to
compete at the Miss South Dakota
Teen pageant in Hot Springs, June
26 through June 29.

Well, the snow has been melting,
ground is showing again, the drifts
are slowly diminishing in height,
and the earth is sucking up the
droplets of moisture that come
from the snow. No run off, but re-
plenishing is good too.
Since Vivian Hansen has run
short on her Palmer diary in the Pi-
oneer Review, it is interesting to
read the “Blast from the Past” as
well as the “A Homesteaders Diary
Haakon County, So. Dak – 1907
Bernard Murphy.” The last couple
of weeks he speaks of Bert Dibble
taking a teaching job at the
Fairchild School. Grandma’s book,
“Frontier Woman” put together by
Walker D. Wyman from Grandma’s
notes tells on page 32 about the
employment of Bert Dibble at the
school that was set up close to their
home. There are some things in the
book that offended some of the
neighbors the way they were
stated, but Grandma didn’t gloss
over much and the writer of the
book took some liberties as well, so
hopefully not so many toes were
trampled on. At any rate, the little
book is a fairly factual diary of
events that happened the way one
woman saw it.
Monday, I was the driver for the
Haakon County Prairie Trans-
portation van for a trip into Philip
in the morning. Brian Hanson,
with his helper, Brian LaPlant,
were here to fix our furnace issue.
I spent time watching the process,
haven’t got a bill, so wonder if
Brian H. will charge me for my les-
son in furnace fixing! Phyllis Word
stopped for a visit in the afternoon.
Monday found Tony Harty vist-
ing at the L.D. and Shirley Hair
home as well as stopping by here to
give me his news. He was trying to
catch a cold, so hope he isn’t shar-
ing it around.
Tuesday morning, I visited Dale
and Cindy O’Connell and took back
an article I’d made copies of for
him, written up by his grand-
mother, Hazel Wedeman O’Con-
nell. To quote what Hazel wrote,
“To those who live in cosmopolitan
areas, our lives and efforts seem
wasted, but to us who live here,
there has been joy and sorrow, sun-
shine and happiness, and ‘a heap o
livin.’’ We want no part of their
kind of life!”
Tony Harty visited L.D. and
Shirley Hair then had dinner out
before heading home to give his
cold a rest Tuesday.
Wednesday morning found me
on the road to Philip with a couple
of folks who were taking physical
therapy there. Bill and I were
among the many in attendance at
the services for Cliff Ramsey in the
afternoon and Bill enjoyed his
usual pastime of cards and I visited
around town to give him time for
that.
Tony Harty went out for dinner
Wednesday, then returned home,
still not feeling the best.
Don and Vi Moody spent a couple
of pretty nice, warm days at their
home in Rapid Valley and did a lit-
tle business and had quite a mix of
wildlife experiences at their home
up there. A Christmas gift from
their tenants was a squirrel feeder.
They left it full of feed and it stayed
abandoned for almost two weeks
until they were up there this time
and the squirrels raised cane with
it, knocked all the seed out on the
ground and were cleaning up that
with a frenzy of four or more squir-
rels, and they were bunting at their
feeder like a newborn calf on it's
mom. Don and Vi think they had
better move it a little farther out
from the house before they fill it
again. Also the geese blackened the
beautiful azure sunset at exactly
5:30 when Don and Vi pulled in to
their yard Thursday evening. The
geese were coming in for a landing
south of Rapid Creek and there
must of have been thousands of
them. These energetic and seem-
ingly very enthusiastic beautiful
birds finally all settled in for the
night after much hoopla, dances,
bird gossip, or whatever. Maybe it
was their going south or returning
north convention or something of
that sort.
Thursday and Friday, Tony
Harty was somewhat better, vis-
ited at the L.D. and Shirley Hair
home, went out for dinner then re-
turned home to rest.
Kinsey, Natalie and Kohen Git-
tings were in Rapid City Friday af-
ternoon. George Gittings was in
Kadoka Friday and had lunch with
Dale and Cindy O'Connell.
Friday was almost a bad day for
me. I didn’t look close enough at my
diary and a scheduled HCPT van
run to Rapid set for January 18
(which I thought was Thursday)
was all lined up. I had also lined up
six ladies to go to the Milesville
supper and play – Friday. Thank
goodness I was saved by Carol
Solon taking the run to Rapid. At
3:00 p.m. I picked up Phyllis Word,
Lois Pettyjohn, Frances Terkild-
sen, Bonnie Riggins, Linda Rig-
gins, and Joyce Hicks in our van
and we were off to see the country.
It was a nice drive in the daylight.
We took a side trip to Sandee and
Goerge Gittings’ home, then on to
Milseville. We had to dawdle a lit-
tle because we were too early. Sup-
per was served at the Hardingrove
Community Church and we were
the first in line, then on over to the
hall for a wonderful play. It is all
over and done with for this year,
but was another outstanding per-
formance and it was so much fun to
see so many friends while there.
Peggy (Gittings) Hook joshed me
about folks hiding from me to keep
out of being mentioned in this col-
umn. (Sorry Peggy, just couldn’t re-
sist.)
Sympathy is extended to Bev Mc-
Daniel and family in the loss of her
son, Marvin McDaniel, this week.
Saturday morning early, Tony
Harty discovered his billfold was
missing. A quick check at the local
café and it was safe and sound and
waiting for him to pick up. He had
breakfast out.
Don and Vi Moody returned to
the ranch Saturday afternoon. Vi
said she spent the weekend work-
ing on taxes and helping her class
by sending out reminders to class-
mates announcing a class of 1963
reunion. By the way, PHS class of
1963, get ready for the 50th re-
union over Festival Days in June.
Spread the word around (emails,
phone calls, letters, etc.) Maybe
there will be a "boot scottin boogie"
somewhere – but the club house at
the golf course is where they aim to
start.
Saturday afternoon, Bonnie Rig-
gins (since we have two Bonnie
Riggins over here, I should say the
one formerly from Wanblee who
was the one who went with us on
Friday too) stopped for coffee and a
visit. And, as she went out one door
Tony Harty came in the other door.
Tony gave me his news for the
week and visited. Bill and I then
went to Philip for the benefit sup-
per for Lola Hulce sponsored by the
National Mutual Benefit #85. It
was during the girls’ and boys’ bas-
ketball game, so there was a large
attendance who then went to the
games.
Sunday, Bill and I went to Philip
for breakfast sponsored by the
Philip Mason Lodge #153. They are
serving breakfast on Sunday morn-
ing through February. Light snow
came and went in bursts through-
out the day. Grandson Zack Sea-
ger, Cori Barber and little Ryder
came in time for dinner with us.
Accompanying them were their two
pitbull dogs, Ruca and Rowdy.
That is a van full. It was a fun visit
and Ryder is such a good little guy
as were the dogs. Before leaving,
Ryder put all the toys back where
they came from and all was good.
They ventured on to Philip and vis-
ited there with Casey Seager before

REGULAR SESSION
January 8, 2013
The Regular Session Meeting of the
Haakon County Commissioners was held
on Tuesday, January 8, 2013, at 1:04 PM.
Those present at the meeting were Chair-
man Edward Briggs, Members Vice
Chairman Stephen Clements, Rita O’-
Connell, Nicholas Konst and Gary Snook.
A quorum was established. Haakon

Auditor Pat Freeman, Deputy Auditor

Kenneth Neville, Customer Account Tech-
nician Alex Kulesza, from Butler Cat in
Rapid City, SD, Librarian Annie Brunskill,
Sheriff Fred Koester, Thomas J. Radway
and Pioneer Review Representative
Nancy Haigh were also present.
The 2012 old business remaining to be
reviewed were the December 4, 2012,
Regular Meeting Minutes. Vice Chairman
Clements made a motion to approve
these minutes as read. Commissioner
Snook seconded with all in agreement.
The December 26, 2012, Special Meeting
Minutes were discussed. Commissioner
O’Connell made a motion to do a recon-
sideration of a motion in the December
26, 2012, Special Minutes concerning the
supplementing of the 233 Courthouse
Building budget. Commissioner Snook
seconded with all in agreement. In recon-
sidering the motions made in the second
to last paragraph, final page, there will be
no supplement done for (233) Court-
house Building budget. 233 Courthouse
Building budget will remain a -$26,441.84
balance. Commissioner Snook made the
motion and Commissioner O’Connell sec-
onded with all in agreement. The adver-
tised 233 Courthouse Building Supple-
ment Budget Hearing set for 1:15 PM was
not held due to the reconsideration of the
motion.
At this time, Alex Kulesza from Butler and
Highway Superintendent Neville brought
up several different scenarios concerning
the best way to keep all our blades under
warranty. After much discussion, no deci-
sions were made at this time.
Librarian Annie Brunskill gave her final
2012 quarterly report to the commission.
She stated they were enjoying their new
computers and software. She is looking
into grants to replace two of their older
computers and would like to replace
some of their chairs.
A letter was received from the Meade
County Commissioners, written to Gover-
nor Daugaard, concerning the Animal
Damage Control (ADC)/Wildlife Damage
Management (WDM) program not being
included in the Governor’s investigation
on Game, Fish, & Parks (GF&P) policies
and procedures. The letter contained sta-
tistics from 2004 through 2012, indicating
resource losses had increased to $1 mil-
lion+ since GF&P reduced predator and
nuisance animal control activities. This
same concern is shared with the
(SDSGA) South Dakota Sheep Growers
Association and the cattle industry. There
is a request for an unbiased, independ-
ent, external investigation to address
these issues. A motion was made to sign
a similar letter to be sent to Governor
Daugaard with this same information and
request. The motion was seconded with
all in agreement.
The completed Haakon County Policy
Handbook will be passed out to each em-
ployee and they will be given the oppor-
tunity to have some input on the pro-
posed policies. At the next meeting on
Tuesday, February 5, 2013, any concerns
can be brought to the commission at this
time. Then the final approval can be
given.
Sheriff Fred Koester gave his monthly re-
port. He reported that he has been trying
to get Deputy Seth Marbry into the Law
Enforcement Training Academy in Pierre,
SD, but it may be next August before
there is an opening. He is on a list in case
of any cancellations. He will keep the
commission informed.
Haakon County State’s Attorney Gay
Tollefson was asked to help the county
draw up an ordinance for our four liquor
license applicants to be able to serve on-
sale alcoholic beverages on Sunday. T-34
owner Trudy Flesner stated that it would
be advantageous if on Sundays their es-
tablishment could serve on-sale bever-
ages with meals and what was needed to
get this accomplished. The commission
needs to pass an ordinance giving them
this privilege. Commissioner Snook
stated that if it is done for one, it should
be for all of them. These establishments
would be T-34, Wheeler Brooks Post 173,
South Fork LLC and Lake Waggnor Golf
Course.
The Auditor’s Account with the County
Treasurer was presented as taxes for the

plus Cash report was at 21.77%. A list of
tax levies were given to each commis-
sioner to review. Tax statements have
been completed.
District 3 Commissioner Rita O’Connell
will be moving into District 4 soon, thus
making her ineligible to represent District
3. Tom Radway, who lives in District 3,
has agreed to take on the responsibilities
and duties of District 3 Commissioner. At
this time, Commissioner Rita O’Connell
turned in her resignation and Tom Rad-
way was appointed the new commis-
sioner for District 3 and took the Oath of
Office. Rita O’Connell has served as
Haakon County Commissioner since Jan-
uary 1, 2005. At this time, she was ap-
pointed after Daryl Terkildsen resigned
because he moved out of the district. The
Haakon County Commissioners thanked
Rita for her seven years of service to the
county and the representation on the li-
brary board. Commissioner Tom Radway
has had previous experience with govern-
ing boards and is very knowledgeable
about the community. We all are looking
forward to working with him.

Greetings from cold, snow cov-
ered, slightly breezy, partly sunny
northeast Haakon County. Thank
goodness the colder weather
skirted east of us – a friend of mine
in Minnesota said they hope their
temperature gets above zero today.
That makes me pretty happy with
our current temperature of 15˚!
The weatherman is predicting
warmer temperatures for later in
the week, which will be nice for
those who are headed for the stock
show in Rapid City.
Randy and I were gone over the
weekend, returning home Monday
evening, so news gathering this
week was done in a hurry. Thanks
to those who sent me their news via
the computer – it simplified things
for this week.
First of all, I want to convey my
sympathy to the family of Maxine
Norman, who passed away a few
days ago. I remember when I came
to this community as a young
bride, Maxine always seemed to be
involved in most anything that was
going on, whether it be ball games,
club events, but most especially
Eastern Star activities. She was
definitely a leader, and she will be
missed.
Clint and Laura Alleman said
they enjoyed several imaginary tea
parties this week, along with a
wide array of dolls. It sounds like
their daughter, Alivya, is an awe-
some little hostess and loves enter-
taining. Clint attended the annual
fire department meeting in Hayes
Wednesday evening. While Clint
was at the meeting, Laura and
Alivya had the chance to play with
Johnathon and Justin Neuharth,
sons of Levi and Crystal Neuharth.
Laura attended play practice in
Hayes Thursday, and Friday the
Allemans joined T.J. and Jeanine
Gabriel in attending the play at
Milesville. The Milesville play this
year was a musical comedy, and
from all accounts it was great en-
tertainment.
Saturday, Clint, Laura and
Alivya went to Pierre to take care
of some shopping and also attended
the Winter Expo. Alivya enjoyed
the happy meal she won. Laura
also wanted to send happy birth-
day greetings to her young friend,
Jeanine Gabriel, who celebrated
her birthday on the 22nd.
Saturday, Frank and Shirley
Halligan picked up Dave and
Laura Hand and attended the mu-
sical comedy at Milesville. It was a
very enjoyable evening with supper
at the church prior to the play.
Both couples appreciated all the
hard work that went into putting
on a production of that size which
included many familiar faces and
lots of laughs. Great job! Sunday,
Shirley went to town to take food to
the Norman family and visit with
Loni and Marcia. They were all
childhood friends, growing up just
a few miles from each other.
Thor Roseth came out to Duane
and Lola's Saturday to look at some
calves. Grandson Royce wasn't feel-
ing up to par that day, so he and
his mother, Jackie, stayed home.
After church Sunday, Duane and
Lola stopped at Billy and Arlyne
Markwed's to play cards.
Carmen Alleman said it has been
a relatively quiet week at their
house. Thursday, Carmen went to
Philip to get license plates and to
visit with her aunts, Marie Ander-
son and Ida Hunt. Granddaughter
Alivya stayed with Clark and Car-
men while Clint and Laura went to
the Milesville play. If all went well,
it was going to be Alivya's first
sleepover with grandpa and
grandma, but I didn't hear if she
spent the night or not.
Dick and Gene Hudson attended
church Sunday, and they also had
their annual church meeting. Gene
said there was good attendance.
The Hudson's left Monday to go to
their daughter, Deb Burma's, home
in Columbus, Neb., to visit with
Deb and her family. They planned
to stop in Highmore on the way to
visit Ruth Neuhauser and deliver
some cookies and treats from the
ladies aid members. They had
planned to make the delivery ear-
lier, but bad weather postponed the
trip.
Connie Johnson said it was a
quiet weekend at their house. Con-
nie has been under the weather –
hope the medication kicks in soon.
Being a teacher, I'm sure Connie is
exposed to most every bug that
makes its way around the commu-
nity.
Bill and Polly Bruce spent Sun-
day in Milesville. They attended
church there, followed by the lunch
put on by the firemen. Then they
attended the play, which they thor-
oughly enjoyed. Their friend, Matt
Gille de Leon, came from his home
in the Black Hills Thursday and
left Tuesday. He stayed with Vince
and Katie Bruce while he was here.
Monday, Vince, Katie and Matt, as
well as Ted Schofield, were lunch
guests at Bill and Polly's home.
Max and Joyce Jones went to
Pierre Saturday to visit with the
Norman family and take them
some food. Other than that, it has
been a relatively quiet week at
their house.
Marge Briggs kept a doctor's ap-
pointment last week, and it sounds
like things are going fine with her.

It was a good road trip to the
Winner Invitational Wrestling
Tournament for the Philip Area
team as they brought back the first
place team award, eight first and
second individual awards, along
with five other placings, and Rance
Johnson was voted “Most Out-
standing Wrestler.”
Head coach Matt Donnelly noted
that everyone wrestled well and
the team is almost back to full
strength. Some are coming back
from injuries and illness and he
looks forward to them being better
for the next tournament.
Donnelly said that some schools
are noted for certain techniques
which give the wrestlers more ex-
perience. “The only way you’re
going to get better is to find the
best and go after them,” said Don-
nelly.
Twelve teams participated in the
January 19 tournment with Philip
scoring more than 45 points over
their nearest competitor. Final
team placings were Philip (278.5),
Winner (233), Bon Homme (191.5),
Mobridge-Pollock (155), Redfield/
Doland (115), Sunshine Bible Acad-
emy (90.5), Mt. Vernon/Plankin-
ton/Corsica (72), Todd County (69),
St. Thomas More (49), Andes Cen-
tral (29), Cheyenne-Eagle Butte/
Dupree (20) and Pine Ridge (0).

Next Saturday, January 26, the
wrestlers will head down to Wag-
ner for their invitational tourna-
ment. Always a tough tournament,
the Scotties will have their work
cut out for them.
The Philip Invitational
Wrestling Tournament has been
rescheduled for Saturday, Febru-
ary 9, and it will be held in Wall.
Start time will be 9:00 a.m. Don-
nelly said the switch from two days
to one will make for one long day,
but is glad it could be rescheduled.
Twelve schools have committed to
the tournament.
First place at Winner for area wrestlers
Reed Johnson returned to the mats this past weekend after being on the injured
list since December. He took second place in the tournament at Winner.
Rance Johnson not only took first place
for the 113 lbs. weight division, he was
also voted as Most Outstanding
Wrestler for the Winner Invitational
Wrestling Tournament.

The Philip Scotties basketball
teams hosted a doubleheader
against the Bennett County War-
riors, Saturday, January 19.
The District 14B Scotties boys
got the lead against the District
14A Warriors, and held it. The first
quarter ended with Philip ahead by
nine points. Before halftime, they
jumped that lead up to 29 points.
Philip gained another 20 in the
third quarter, while allowing the
Warriors just eight more points on
the scoreboard. The fourth quarter
was merciful, in the Scotties get-
ting play time for all their team
members and letting Bennett
County enjoy its top-scoring quar-
ter. The game ended with Philip
still holding a 31 point lead.

The Philip junior varsity fought
a tough game, losing by just two
points. The first quarter ended
with the Scotties being ahead by
five points. At halftime that lead
was still four points. The third
quarter, though, saw a turn around
where Bennett County held a four
point lead. Philip narrowed that
lead to just one field goal, but when
the final buzzer sounded, the score-
board was tilted in favor of Bennett
County by just one field goal.

Philip’s Family, Career, Commu-
nity Leaders of America is working
with the Gem Theatre as a commu-
nity service project to raise money
for the purchase of a required pro-
jector that will be needed to show
movies starting in the fall of 2013.
Without the purchase of this
$65,000 projector, the theater will
close. The theater has established
a non-profit account for this pur-
chase and has about $6,000 toward
the cost of the projector.
If sufficient money is not raised
for the purchase of the projector,
the fundraised money will come
back to the community.
FCCLA is selling raffle tickets on
a play house to support the
fundraising for this project. The
play house was built last spring by
Philip High School ag and wood-
working classes. It can be seen on
a trailer parked on the corner of
the “dust bowl” just north of the
high school.
Raffle tickets can be purchased
separately or at a discount for five
tickets. Look for the table with
FCCLA members selling raffle
tickets at home games in the next
month. FCCLA officers Kelsie
Kroetch, Katlin Knutson, Gavin
Brucklacher and Bailey Radway
currently have tickets or see
FCCLA advisor Brigitte Bruck-
lacher.
The drawing will be held Thurs-
day, February 14. According to the
FCCLA, if you love going to movies
at our local theater, buy a raffle
ticket and help us “Save the Gem!”

On Saturday, January 19, the
Philip Scotties girls’ basketball
team hosted part of a doubleheader
against the Bennett County War-
riors.
The District 14A Warriors had a
four point advantage over the Dis-
trict 14B Scotties at the end of the
first quarter. For the rest of the
game, Philip just could not put in
many of their field goal attempts.
They had to settle for only three
points total in the second quarter,
two points in the third quarter, and
six in the final quarter. The Scot-
ties did hold their opponents to just
six points in the third quarter,
though the last quarter saw a
pulling away by the Warriors.

Philip Scotties play White River
The United States Army Old
Guard Fife and Drum Corps has
participated in every presidential
inaugural parade since President
John F. Kennedy’s in 1961. Presi-
dent Barack Obama’s second inau-
gural parade, January 21, had a
South Dakota connection because
the Corps’ commander is Chief
Warrant Officer 4 Fred Ellwein.
With a music education degree
from South Dakota State Univer-
sity in 1983, followed by a master’s
degree in 1986, Ellwein took com-
mand of the corps in June 2010.
“The opportunity to command
and lead the Old Guard Fife and
Drum Corps ... is exhilarating,”
said Ellwein, who was commander
of the United States Army Material
Command Band at Aberdeen Prov-
ing Ground in Maryland before as-
suming command of the Corps.
Ellwein has been involved with
the inaugural parade twice. He was
the drum major for the Pride of the
Dakota’s Marching Band in the in-
augural parade for President
Ronald Reagan in 1981. “My posi-
tive experiences in academic pur-
suits ... all led to a simply remark-
able first inaugural parade appear-
ance at the tender age of 20,” re-
called Ellwein.
In the inaugural parade for Pres-
ident George W. Bush in 2005, Ell-
wein was the merge control mili-
tary officer in charge of the precise
flow of marching bands, equestrian
units and floats, consisting of
11,000 participants.
Ellwein started his military ca-
reer as a euphonium player in the
S.D. Army National Guard in 1979.
In 1989, he commanded the S.D.
Guard’s 147th Army Band. Ellwein
had a 21-year teaching career, in-
cluding director of bands and jazz
studies at South Dakota School of
Mines and Technology. He co-
founded the South Dakota All-
State Jazz Festival in 1988.
The 69-member corps uses 10-
hole fifes, handmade rope-ten-
sioned drums and single-valve bu-
gles. It averages about 500 per-
formances annually. The corps is
the only unit of its kind in the
armed forces. The musicians per-
form in uniforms patterned after
those worn by musicians of General
George Washington’s Continental
Army. They consist of black tricorn
hats, white wigs, waistcoats, colo-
nial coveralls and red regimental
coats.

The American Veterinary Med-
ical Association recently released
its United States Pet Ownership
and Demographics Sourcebook,
which revealed that South Dakota
ranks third for pet ownership with
65.6 percent of households owning
a pet.
South Dakota also ranked in the
top 10 for cat ownership in 2011.
The survey is conducted by the
AVMA every five years and always
includes a breakdown of pet owner-
ship by state. The most recent sur-
vey, conducted in 2012 but based
on December 31, 2011, numbers,
reveals that the top 10 pet-owning
states are Vermont where 70.8 per-
cent of households owned a pet,
New Mexico with 67.6 percent,
South Dakota with 65.6 percent,
Oregon with 63.6 percent, Maine
with 62.9 percent, Washington
with 62.7 percent, Arkansas with
62.4 percent, West Virginia with
62.1 percent, Idaho with 62 per-
cent, and Wyoming with 61.8 per-
cent.
The 10 states in 2011 with the
lowest percentage of pet-owning
households are Rhode Island where
53 percent of households owned a
pet, Minnesota with 53 percent,
California with 52.9 percent, Mary-
land with 52.3 percent, Illinois
with 51.8 percent, Nebraska with
51.3 percent, Utah with 51.2 per-
cent, New Jersey with 50.7 percent,
New York with 50.6 percent, and
Massachusetts with 50.4 percent.
The District of Columbia had a far
lower rate of pet ownership at 21.9
percent.
The sourcebook reveals that the
states with the most dog owners in
2011 are Arkansas where 47.9 per-
cent of households owned a dog,
New Mexico with 46 percent, Ken-
tucky with 45.9 percent, Missouri
with 45.9 percent, West Virginia
with 45.8 percent, Mississippi with
45.2 percent, Alabama with 44.1
percent, Tennessee with 44.1 per-
cent, Texas with 44 percent, and
Oklahoma with 43.2 percent.
The bottom 10 states in 2011 for
dog ownership are Illinois where
32.4 percent of households owned a
dog, New Jersey with 32.4 percent,
Minnesota with 31.9 percent,
Maryland with 30.8 percent, New
Hampshire with 30.3 percent, Utah
with 29.4 percent, Rhode Island
with 29.3 percent, New York with
29 percent, Connecticut with 28.3
percent, and Massachusetts with
23.6 percent. The District of Co-
lumbia had far lower dog owner-
ship than any state with 13.1 per-
cent.
The 2011 top 10 states with the
most cat-owning households are
Vermont where 49.5 percent owned
a cat, Maine with 46.4 percent,
Oregon with 40.2 percent, South
Dakota with 39.1 percent, Wash-
ington with 39 percent, West Vir-
ginia with 38.1 percent, Kentucky
with 36.8 percent, Idaho with 34.6
percent, Indiana with 34.4 percent,
and New Hampshire with 34.2 per-
cent.
Conversely, the bottom 10 states
with the lowest rate of cat-owning
households in 2011 are California
where 28.3 percent of households
owned a cat, South Carolina with
27.8 percent, Rhode Island with
27.6 percent, Alabama with 27.4
percent, Florida with 27.3 percent,
Georgia with 27.3 percent, Illinois
with 26.3 percent, Louisiana with
25.9 percent, New Jersey with 25.3
percent, and Utah with 24.6 per-
cent. The District of Columbia,
once again, had by far the lowest
rate of cat ownership with 11.6 per-
cent.
“This report reveals a tremen-
dous amount of information about
pets and their owners across the
country; what’s constant and what
has changed. One of the most im-
portant parameters that we look at
is how well pet owners are doing at
keeping their pets healthy,” said
Dr. Douglas G. Aspros, president of
the AVMA. “Unfortunately, the re-
port reveals that fewer dogs and
cats are seeing the veterinarian
regularly, and that’s something
that the AVMA and every compan-
ion animal veterinarian are con-
cerned about. Pet owners across
the country need to remember to
bring their pets into the veterinar-
ian – at least once a year – to main-
tain optimal health.”
The report indicates that, be-
tween 2006 and 2011, the percent-
age of households that made no
trips at all to the veterinarian in-
creased by eight percent for dog
owners and a staggering 24 percent
for cat owners. Overall, about 81
percent of dog owning households
made at least one visit to the vet-
erinarian in 2011, down 1.7 percent
from 2006. The decrease for cat
owners was, once again, much
higher, as only 55.1 percent of cat
owners made at least one visit to
the veterinarian in 2011, down
13.5 percent from 2006.
The U.S. Pet Ownership and De-
mographics Sourcebook offers a
great deal of information on pet
ownership, trends and veterinary
care. It’s available free to journal-
ists and is for sale on the AVMA
website. For more information

returning to Rapid. Lesson learned
today was by Grandpa Bill, two
nine volt batteries you think are
dead are not Lego blocks, do not
plug them into each other. Bill did
just that and gave them to Ryder to
ponder over and see how they were
put together. In a short time, he
came over and said they were hot.
Indeed, they were very hot! We
quickly pulled them apart and it
took quite awhile for them to fi-
nally cool down. Thank goodness
Ryder was quick to notice the tem-
perature change and tell us about
it.
As if there isn’t enough happen-
ing to make us weary, there are
still those trying to convince folks
they are the winners of millions of
dollars, but they must first send
$190 by Western Union in order to
get the winnings. Another one
going around is getting a call from
a person saying “grandma/
grandpa, I’m in trouble and need
money” – naturally the grandpar-
ent will name a child and that
gives the caller a name to work
with and again, it is a scam. The
latest one is a delivery of flowers
and wine showing up. The delivery
person says they must collect $3.50
because the alcohol cannot be left
with a child, but they cannot take
cash. You are asked to swipe your
credit card and enter the pin num-
ber and security code on their ma-
chine. As you enjoy the flowers and
wine, your credit card is being run
up big time. It too is a scam. So be-
ware of deliveries you didn’t order.
The state legislature is hard at
work. They are now concentrating
on the young drivers. Bills are in
place to make it a law against use
of cell phones, restrict the number
of riders and extend the time driv-
ers age 14-17 must have a re-
stricted permit. Be on guard, next
they will be after those over 65!
Laws that stopped youth from
working until they were 18 has
turned this country into a nation of
non-productive youth. Thank good-
ness we are still a rural area, so our
young people know responsibility
and have good work ethics. How-
ever, just last year the federal gov-
ernment wanted to put a stop to all
youth from working on farms and
ranches, including helping family
members.
“We can easily forgive a child
who is afraid of the dark; the real
tragedy of life is when adults are

50 Years Ago
J.E. Gittings celebrated his 89th
birthday, Friday, January 18,
1963. A dinner for fifteen guests
was given in his honor on Friday
evening at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. John Hagarty.
Grindstone … Dorothy Dean was
the guest of honor at a birthday
party at her apartment in Philip
with Frances Dean and Dorothy
Nixon as hostesses.
Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Pates had
a birthday dinner for Rose Kiel last
Sunday. Those attending were Mr.
and Mrs. Ted Fossee and Kathy,
Mr. and Mrs. Kris Paulson and the
Orville Kiels and Loren Kiel fam-
ily.
Cottonwood … Barbara Brech,
who works at the Quinn hospital
on Saturdays, had to stay in Quinn
Saturday night on account of the
blizzard.
Midland News … Mr. and Mrs.
Delmer Finn and Tom assisted
with rolling oats Wednesday at the
Severson ranch and were dinner
guests at the Glenn Marrington
home.
Gleanings … Congratulations
are in order for our newlyweds, Mr.
and Mrs. Rick King. They will be
living on the former Harris Hanson
place.
Northwest Corner … Mr. and
Mrs. Wallace Aasheim (nee Patty
Coleman) are the proud parents of
a baby boy. Patty and baby are
staying with ther mother, Mrs.
Babe Coleman, while Wallace is in
Nebraska.
Mr. and Mrs. John Eatherton
spent Sunday and had dinner with
Irene’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Axel
Olson, to help them celebrate their
55th wedding anniversary.
South Fork News … Danny
Brooks and Doug Ramsey had
birthdays last week, so the school
invited the school east of Philip
over for a birthday party Friday
p.m.

(continued from page 6)
Helen Beckwith stopped by one day
for a visit.
T.J. and Jeanine Gabriel are
keeping busy with calving, kids in
school, and all the activities that
entails. Jeanine is teaching release
time classes this year, and the stu-
dents held one of their recent meet-
ings in the new cabin at Billy and
Arlyne Markwed's. That was quite
a treat for the kids. T.J. and Jea-
nine attended the Milesville play
Friday evening while Billy and Ar-
lyne watched the cows and kids,
then Billy and Arlyne went to the
play Saturday night. Young Kyler
Gabriel is definitely into the terri-
ble twos, according to his mother.
And, if asked, Kyler will tell you
that they have "blue" cows – those
must be a new strain of Angus!
Coreen and Julian Roseth and
Sophie and Pat Foley spent part of
last weekend in Deadwood, just en-
joying a short little getaway.
Russ and Cindy Sinkey are stay-
ing busy with work, school, and
chores – sounds like typical winter
in the country. Thank goodness the
road conditions have been rela-
tively good this year, since Cindy's
job takes her to Eagle Butte and
other locations.
Dorothy Paulson said there was
not much news from their house.
Nels attended the fire department
meeting in Hayes Wednesday, the
16th. Thursday, Nels and Dorothy
had business in Pierre, and then
they went and retrieved their
stacker tractor from the repairman
south of Ft. Pierre. Dorothy said it
sure seems good to have it up and
running again. Sunday, Dorothy
attended church and the congrega-
tional meeting that followed.
Mary Neuhauser and three of
her sisters were in Rochester last
week to be on hand for her brother
Ted's surgery. It sounds like the
surgery went well and the progno-
sis is good – great news. Kevin was
in Pierre Saturday for a Masonic
meeting, and Mary went to High-
more to visit Ruth Neuhauser.
Kevin and Mary returned to the
ranch later on Saturday.
The week has gone by in a flash
here at Neuhauser ranch. Randy,
Kevin Neuhauser and Chase
Briggs attended the fire depart-
ment meeting in Hayes Wednes-
day. And as I said earlier, Randy
and I were gone for the weekend.
We hopped on a plane Friday and
flew to Las Vegas to spend a few
days with our friends, Bob and
Sharel Spears. Since it was a holi-
day weekend, I think there were
even more people there than usual.
The weather was great – it was so
nice to be able to walk around with-
out a coat and enjoy the green
grass, palm trees, and flowers. It
was great to spend time with our
friends, and I love watching the
people – the fashions are so varied,
and there are plenty of examples of
what not to wear. We flew back in
to Rapid City Monday afternoon,
glad to be back to peace and quiet,
even if it isn't quite as warm here.
While in Las Vegas, we enjoyed
great entertainment and good food,
but it is wonderful to be home.
This week, I think I am most
grateful for peace and quiet. I feel
sorry for the people who have to
work in the midst of all that noise
pollution in Las Vegas every day.
And I am grateful for our simple
way of life – working hard, raising
food and
fiber for
the world,
and going
to sleep
at night
tired from
g o o d ,
h o n e s t
physi cal
l a b o r .
T h a n k
goodness
t h i s
l i f estyl e
isn't for
everyone,
or our
peace and
q u i e t
would be
gone.
I hope
you will
stop for a
mi n u t e
this week and think about the
things you are grateful for – it
tends to make you happier if you
find things to be grateful for rather
than finding things to be upset
about. Enjoy your week.
