The life of James “Scotty” Philip
will soon hit the big screens in
Philip and Pierre, thanks to Justin
Private screenings for all area
residents and those involved with
the James “Scotty” Philip Memo-
rial Ride will be held in Pierre Sat-
urday, February 9 and in Philip at
the Gem Theatre Sunday, Febru-
ary 10 at 6:00 p.m.
Justin, a graduate of Midland
High School, Class of 1998, said he
had never heard of Scotty Philip
until Vince Bruce, of northeast
Haakon County contacted him.
Vince stated that the Verendrye
Museum in Ft. Pierre was wanting
someone to document the Scotty
Philip memorial ride between
Philip and Ft. Pierre.
Justin said it was clear he
needed to tackle this project after
some research and visiting with
John Duffy, vice president of the
“Scotty’s story, however, was al-
most too good to be true,” said
Justin. “I felt like if I had pitched
this to a big-time producer, they
would have scoffed at the events
surrounding his life. I was simply
amazed that no one had told his
story on screen. I felt like I had
struck gold!”
Researching and uncovering
archival photographs was one of
Justin’s favorite parts of the proj-
ect. He admitted that it was a time
consuming task, especially since he
had over 500 photos to edit. “Being
a photographer, I understand the
power of a photograph and I placed
extra attention on selecting the im-
ages for the film.” He whittled it
down to 131 photographs that ap-
pear in the film.
Justin said he and his editor,
Aaron Pendergast, spent “a haunt-
ing amount of hours” on the film.
“The rough cut was over 90 min-
utes long,” said Justin. They were
able to finally get it down to a run
time of 60 minutes. “Trying to tell
a compelling story that would cap-
ture someone’s attention for 60
minutes was a challenge in itself,”
he said. “I take a lot of pride in sto-
rytelling, and I hope people enjoy
that aspect of the film.”
Justin noted that his favorite
part of the film is when Scotty
brings all of his deceased children,
who had been buried in various
places, to his recently established
family plot north of Ft. Pierre. “It
is the first section of the film where
we inserted music, and I will never
forget the emotion I felt when we
watched it for the first time. That
was the moment I began to believe
we had something to be proud of.”
Justin said he believes he met
his high expectations for “The Buf-
falo King.” “I have to give credit
though, to all those who donated
their time and talents to this proj-
ect. Without them it would have
been extremely hard to meet those
high expectations.” William Ecker
composed the movie score, sound
mix was done by Broooke Saelens,
film narrator is Denielle Fisher
Johnson, the voice of William Tem-
ple Hornaday is Sonny Hutchison
and James Cuthill gives voice to
“Sadly, I knew nothing of Scotty
Philip. I was never made aware of
his contributions to the buffalo,
that he was the name behind the
town of Philip, or any other of his
lifetime accomplishments,” said
Justin. He hopes that he will be
able to get the opportunity to tell
more stories of South Dakota on
the big screen. “South Dakota has
an abundance of stories that carry
both historical and educational
value. I want to lead the way in
telling these stories.”
Justin is not new to the world of
film making. He was featured in
the Pioneer Review in 2005 for
“10:15 Salem Park” a film he and
a friend produced shortly after
graduating from college. He has
been working in Denver with tele-
vision production since 2008, prin-
cipally with High Noon Enter- tain-
ment and Great Divide Pictures.
Some of his work with Great Divide
Pictures include films for the U.S.
National Parks Service, which in-
clude numerous battlefield parks
and monuments and Petroglyph
National Monument.
“The Buffalo King” has been en-
tered in the Black Hills Film Festi-
val, scheduled for May 1-5 and the
South Dakota Film Festival, Sep-
tember 26-29. “We want to submit
to film festivals all over the United
States and abroad,” said Justin.
But there is no guarantee the
movie will be selected. A fee is
charged for many of the festivals
and Justin hopes to be able to raise
some funds to help cover those
“I hope people walk away with a
sense of pride and wonderment,”
said Justin of his film. “Scotty is a
local hero, South Dakota hero, and
hopefully, a soon-to-be national

The Philip Area chapter of AARP
and the Retired Teacher Associa-
tion joined with the Haakon
County Public Library, Monday,
January 28, to hold a community
discussion on country schools.
The AARP/RTA agenda was
quickly gone through to make time
for the anticipated discussion. Up-
keep of the Old Schoolhouse Park
is an ongoing project for the organ-
ization. Another project is in the
works for an upgrading of a shelter
at the Philip Masonic Cemetery to
house grave site information. Free
tax aid will be provided for all com-
munity members by Robert Mc-
Daniel every Tuesday, starting
February 5. This annual service,
after undergoing annual IRS train-
ing for him, includes e-filing for
The country school discussion
idea, which had originally started
out as a local book club project, has
grown from there, according to
Haakon County Public Library di-
rector Annie Brunskill. A humor-
ous excerpt of the book was read
aloud by discussion coordinator
Dorothy Liegle, a humanities
scholar from Pierre. A show of
hands told that almost the entire
audience had attended country
schools. About half a dozen had
taught in country schools. Some
memorabilia on display included a
teaching contract from 1951, for
$1,540 total for 10 months.
Vonda Hamill, current Haakon
School District school board mem-
ber, said that her first year of
teaching was for 11 students who
ranged from kindergarten through
eighth grade. She said that the
kids told her, ‘It’s okay, we’ll help
you.’ She also said, “I wouldn’t have
made it without mentor teachers.”
One of the handouts was a sam-
ple test, an eighth grade final
exam, from 1895. One question
was, “Find the interest of $512.60
for eight months and 18 days at
seven percent.” One essay ques-
tion, which expected correct use of
grammar, was, “Name and de-
scribe the following: Monrovia,
Odessa, Denver, Manitoba, Hecla,
Yukon, St. Helena, Juan Fernan-
dez, Aspinwall and Orinoco.”
Attendees related their memo-
ries of how their school day would
begin, what “arts” they studied,
their textbooks, their favorite sub-
ject of “recess” and how discipline
was handled. Discussion included
the training and requirements for
country school teachers. The Young
Citizens League was important in
teaching students how to run a
meeting, parliamentary procedure
and oratory contests. Sometimes
districts, and even entire counties,
would get together for activities
such as spelling bees.
Individuals told stories from
their school days. On display were
old photos of Haakon County
school houses with students posed
in front. Many are in need of some-
one naming at least some of the
students in the photos. Community
members are encouraged to bring
to the library their old photos, to be
scanned, reprinted and used for fu-
ture discussions.
There will be a follow up meeting
to further discuss and reminisce
Haakon County country schools. It
will immediately follow the next
AARP/RTA soup supper meeting,
Monday, February 25, at the Bad
River Senior Citizen’s Center,
Philip. All community members
are invited to both meetings.

country school was. Shown are, from left, Herb Sieler, Betty

locations on a smaller table map of Haakon County, before

A second meeting of Philip area
citizens and representatives from
the National Park Service gathered
Thursday, January 24, to further
plans toward eventual construction
of an initial trail project near or in
The Rivers, Trails and Conserva-
tion Assistance department is a di-
vision of the NPS. The RTCA will
assist in finding funds and experts
to blueprint and construct a trail
system for the Philip area. Any ini-
tial route can be expanded in the
future, even if the expansion is of a
different style or purpose.
“This is your property,” said out-
door recreation planner Karen An-
derson. Any public and private
land, or leases and right of way,
that might be used for a trail proj-
ect will remain in the control of the
community, not the NPS or any
other agency.
Kenny Points, RTCA intern will
be with the Philip project to its end.
Other experts, such as Anderson,
will offer their assistance as
needed. Points believes an initial
trail is a key start. “Phase one; get
it in there, improve on it as time
goes,” he said. “People will start
using it, and it will get quite the
Photos of different Philip sites,
markers and locations were pro-
jected as attendees discussed dif-
ferent trail uses, materials and pri-
orities. Breaking into smaller
groups, individuals put forth their
“dream” trails and why they
wanted different aspects of these
no-holds-barred possibilities. The
small groups then tried to consoli-
date the reasons for the ultimate
trails, and limiting those aspira-
tions to a more workable phase
Many agreed that a trail to Lake
Waggoner would be great, but
Points summed it up in that it
would probably be a later phase
trail, mainly because of the dis-
tance from town to the lake. The
first phase will attempt to accom-
modate walkers, joggers and bicy-
clists on a no-steps route that can
initially be used by people of all
ages. It would be for fresh air, so-
cializing and exercise. It would get
trail users off of public roads and
away from traffic. It might have a
trail head as a point of reference.
More citizens are encouraged to
join in the planning stages of a trail
system in and around Philip. Rep-
resentatives of different clubs, or-
ganizations and businesses can re-
port on their group’s wishes, and
can report back to that group. The
local contact for the trail project is
Trisha Larson at 685-9318.
Points will consolidate the dis-
cussion results of the smaller
groups and of the entire audience.
He said that this meeting was a
kind of feeler. Hopefully sometime
in March, he, other representatives
of the RTCA and Philip area people
can meet again. In the meantime,
locals can begin formalizing into a
steering committee, and, since
some funding can be applied for
only by the city, a city representa-
tive should be on that committee.
When a suggested phase one plan
is ready, then acquiring land, ease-
ments and funding can begin.
Philip trails project continues
Kenny Points, left, and Karen Anderson assisted in discussions of small groups
to record and incorporate the local residents’ main points concerning a phase
one trail in or around Philip. They work for the National Park Service’s Rivers,
Trails and Conservation Assistance branch, which will offer expertise in planning
a trail system and finding funding for it. Photo by Del Bartels
Nearly three people die each day
in the United States due to residen-
tial electrical related fires and ac-
cidental electrocutions. Too many
of these victims are children. In ad-
dition, workers younger than 25
have the highest rate of death from
electrical shock.
The South Dakota Rural Electri-
cal Association gave two electrical
safety demonstrations in conjunc-
tion with the Black Hills Stock
Show and Rodeo®. The demonstra-
tions were Monday, January 28, in
the main arena of the Rushmore
Plaza Civic Center. These live pre-
sentations featured audience par-
ticipation and take-home materials
for students. They were presented
at no cost to participants or schools.
Students learned about electricity,
how to “play it safe,” and what hap-
pens when people come into contact
with high voltage lines. They ex-
plored electricity as an indispensa-
ble power source that is often taken
for granted and what dangers can
arise from weather, other emergen-

these efforts, the demonstrations
are worth it.

Lookin’ Around by Syd Iwan
Trust can be a fragile commod-
ity. Take the cooking island in our
kitchen, for example. It looks nice
and solid just like the other
kitchen cupboards, but it has one
major difference in that it’s on
wheels. In other words, if you lean
against it too hard, it’s apt to move.
This can be unsettling. It might
mean you have to make some quick
adjustments to avoid falling on the
floor. Nasty. One eventually learns
not to trust the thing but probably
not until after you’ve had a few
tense moments.
Sometimes in this life, it is tricky
to decide what or who you can
trust. Do you, for instance, trust
your current car or pickup to al-
ways get you where you want to
go? Our vehicles, right now, appear
to be fairly trustworthy since they
aren’t terribly old and haven’t been
driven excessive miles. As you
know, any vehicle can turn obnox-
ious in the blink of an eye, but you
can often depend on those that
aren’t too ancient and have been
properly maintained.
I think of one vehicle I had,
though, that I shouldn’t have
trusted as much as I did. One
evening I drove it at the speed
limit on the freeway for over a hun-
dred miles only to have the front
wheel fall off as I neared home.
When it dropped, I was barely
moving since I had slowed for a
sharp corner on our country roads.
It still gave me quite a jolt, espe-
cially when I considered what
might have happened had that
wheel gone when I was speeding
down those steep river hills on the
freeway. It didn’t bear thinking
about. I was pleased to still be
moving and breathing.
Sometimes, too, I’ve put faith in
certain people that didn’t deserve
it. There was that one time some
years ago when I took in cattle for
a fellow who turned out to be very
difficult to deal with. Not only did
he hate to pay his bills, but he also
failed to move his cattle out at the
time we had previously agreed on.
It was with some relief when that
association was at last over. Since
then I’ve been blessed with other
cattle deals that have worked out
well for all concerned, but such has
not always been the case. Maybe
I’ve learned who to deal with and
who to leave strictly alone.
My good Samaritan complex has
also landed me in trouble a time or
three. One fellow I tried to help
many years ago ended up ripping
me off for several thousand dollars.
He took all my belongings of any
worth and pawned them. He also
depleted my bank account, which
wasn’t very large at the time, by
forging my signature. After he’d
run off with my assets and been
gone a while, he called one day and
wanted me to help him some more.
He was out of luck by then. He’d
given me a harsh lesson, but I’d
learned through it, or at least I had
in his particular case. I don’t mind
helping people but not when they
flat out steal from me.
Fortunately, my immediate fam-
ily has always been composed of
good people. Everyone makes mis-
takes, but that can be overlooked if
the intensions are honorable. I
wouldn’t do any business with
some of my slightly more distant
relatives, but those closest to me
are fine. With those who have lived
or worked on the ranch, some have
been more competent and useful
than others, but we’ve had lots of
good guys helping us. None that I
know of have set out purposely to
defraud or harm us, and some have
been or are truly excellent fellows
to have around.
Here’s a quote you might like.
“Raisin cookies that look like
chocolate-chip cookies are the main
reason I have trust issues.” Not
everything is what it seems. It’s
not that I don’t like raisin cookies,
it’s just that I like chocolate chip-
pers more and am disappointed
when finding I’ve taken a raisin
thinking it was a chipper. The
same principle can have wider ap-
What else can we trust in? One
probably shouldn’t put much hope
in winning the lottery as a means
of support. The odds are greatly
stacked against us there. How
about the government? Iffy, don’t
you think? Some doctors and
lawyers are dependable. Others
not so much. I suppose we’ll have
to just go along trying to put faith
in those people and things that de-
serve it as far as we can tell and
avoiding those that don’t. We can
also trust God to help us know the
difference. After all, he is com-
pletely trustworthy, has our best
interests in mind, and has the
wherewithal and strength to see us
through. It’s a very great blessing
to have him on our side.

Silly geography ... by Del Bartels
South Dakota has a geographic names authority, the United States
has a board on geographic names, and more than 50 nations have
some type of national names authority.
Still, there are over 30 communities in the world called Alexandria.
Though there is a Gettysburg in Pennsylvania, Ohio and South
Dakota, it’s nothing to fight over. And if you run out of imagination,
just rename something old as being new, such as New England, New
Mexico or New Orleans. I should probably live in Bald Head, Maine,
or Hell, Mich., or Lizard Lick, N.C., or maybe Boring, Ore. A some-
what redundant place would be Townsville, S.C.
Some place names are just wrong, such as North in South Carolina,
or Flushing in New York. There is an Oddville in Kentucky and an
Odd in West Virginia. If you are drunk, don’t try to tell the patrolman
that you are driving to Walla Walla, Wash. Did you know that Cali-
fornia is a town in Maryland?
Have “Faith,” I’m picking on South Dakota towns, too, from Ab-
erdeen to Zell. If you like a little humor, you should live in Minnehaha
County. For a quick laugh, though, go to Rapid City. For visual slap-
stick, go to Sioux Falls. To be very Blunt, if the S.D. Geographic
Names Authority was doing its job in making sure no person or group
could take offense, why is there a Gayville, Fruitdale and Pollock?
Some places just have good taste, such as tea. For the nature lover,
visit Bison, Buffalo, Badger, Antelope, Little Eagle and White Horse.
You should be overjoyed that we have an Eureka! But, shouldn’t Sum-
mit be in the Black Hills rather than on the plains? Isn’t Toronto sup-
posed to be in Canada? Of course it is Goodwin, and a loss is bad.
Well, well, there is a town named Artesian. You shouldn’t find Inte-
rior, Centerville or Midland near the state’s border. Some towns were
named just to sound good, such as Eden, Garden City, Goodwill and
Rich Land. At least two places were named so we could hear tourists
mispronounce them; Lead and Pierre. You should be able to stay
awake in Java.
The geographic names authority must not worry about theft, since
so many place names were stolen from other spots, such as Madison,
Harrisburg, Hartford, Salem, Arlington, Scotland, New Underwood,
Mount Vernon, Keystone, Hudson, Trent, Carthage, Sinai, Dallas,
Lebanon, Vienna and Naples.
South Dakota is very personal, as seen in all its first name places,
such as Philip, Brandon, Webster, Gregory, Leola, Florence, Ethan,
Madison, Marion, Irene, Henry, Gary, Bruce, Frederick, Spencer, Is-
abel, Harrold, Ashton, Hazel, Sherman, Lane, Raymond, Erwin, Mar-
vin, Virgil, Lily, Kyle, Allen, Marty and, of course, Lesterville.
Some places are obvious; such as Mound City and Twin Brooks.
And, yes, with my weird sense of humor, I should live in Kidder.
Since 1996, West Central Elec-
tric Cooperative, Inc., has joined
the South Dakota Rural Electric
Association in offering free tours of
Washington, D.C., to high school
West Central is again offering to
sponsor two high school juniors on
an all expense paid Rural Electric
Youth Tour to the nation’s capital.
West Central serves members in
the counties of Haakon, Jackson,
Jones, Lyman and Stanley.
Over the years, West Central has
sponsored 48 juniors. Some years
have included just one student,
while one year it sponsored seven.
Previous Philip High School young
adults who have taken advantage
of the Youth Tour include Kianna
Knutson – 2011, Caleb Clements –
2009, Grace Schnabel – 2008,
Jamie Nickelson – 2005, and
Chancie Smith – 2003.
Eligibility for the trip is open to
all area high school juniors whose
parents or guardians are members
of West Central Electric. Interested
students will be chosen based on
submitted 500-word essays. This
year’s essay subject is “What mo-
ment in American history do you
wish you had been a part of, and
what would you have contributed?”
The essay deadline is February 13.
The tour itself will be from June
14 to June 20. There will be an ori-
entation meeting June 13 in Sioux
In the past, some students have
chosen to not apply, using the rea-
son that they did not want to miss
a week of their summer jobs. Joe
Connot, member services for West
Central Electric Cooperative Inc.,
argues that this is an opportunity
for a free trip to Washington, D.C.,
and, after high school graduation,
the students will probably work the
rest of their lives.
Nation wide and over the entire
year, over 1,500 high school juniors
and seniors experience the Rural
Electric Youth Tour. Though not
all South Dakota electric coopera-
tives participate, the S.D. Rural
Electric Association sends approx-
imately 30 juniors each year to
Washington. Some of the sites that
will be visited are the Lincoln Me-
morial, National Cathedral, Ford’s
Theater, Kennedy Center, the
Metro, Arlington National Ceme-
tery, Mount Vernon, Tomb of the
Unknown Soldier, the Smithson-
ian, Iwo Jima Statue, National
Archives, United States Supreme
Court and the Vietnam Veterans
Memorial. Students will partici-
pate in a breakfast briefing with
the South Dakota congressional
West Central funds the tour.
Participants are provided trans-
portation, room and board, enter-
tainment and sightseeing events.
Students are required to provide
their own personal spending
money, most likely for snacks and

South Dakota legislators met
with district and state FFA officers
at the 2013 South Dakota FFA leg-
islative breakfast and district offi-
cer training hosted by the South
Dakota FFA Association, Wednes-
day and Thursday, January 23-24,
in Pierre.
The purpose of the event was to
promote the FFA’s mission of pre-
mier leadership, personal growth
and career success by bringing to-
gether South Dakota’s governmen-
tal leaders with leaders of the
South Dakota FFA.
The event was hosted by the
2012-2013 State FFA Officer
Team, including Taylor Leonhardt,
Groton, Andrew Rausch, Hoven,
Ashley Tonak, Willow Lake, Tyler
Swan, Newell, Kelli Garry, Lake
Preston, and Savanna Sperle,
Reva. S.D. FFA Ambassadors
Darin Stoecker, Hoven, and Liz
Dahl, Beresford, also assisted. The
state FFA officers conducted a
breakfast program focusing on the
three-part model of agriculture,
food and natural resources educa-
tion which includes classroom in-
struction, supervised agricultural
experience projects and FFA. Dis-
trict FFA officers and advisors vis-
ited one-on-one with legislators,
sharing how local agriculture edu-
cation programs and FFA provide
hands-on, career relevant experi-

High school football games under
Friday night lights and basketball
gyms jam-packed with fans are as
much a part of South Dakota as
coffee-shop talk about the weather
and crops. High school sports and
other interscholastic activities such
as drama and music events fuel in-
tense civic pride in our communi-
ties and schools.
The feats and accomplishments
of students on the field of competi-
tion or the performance stage are
celebrated by an entire community
of family, friends and school fans.
The hometown newspaper is
there as well, chronicling the
games and school activities. Cover-
ing local school sports and school
activities such as plays and con-
certs are a big part of what goes
into the local newspaper. The com-
munity expects it and a good news-
paper meets that expectation.
Technology today has allowed
newspapers to expand the tools
they use to cover high school sports
and events. Newspapers are going
beyond the traditional stories and
photos printed in the paper to inno-
vations such as broadcasting foot-
ball or basketball games over the
internet and updating readers
through social media tools. Readers
have come to expect that type of ex-
panded coverage and newspapers
of all sizes in South Dakota are de-
livering on those expectations.
All good, right? Yes, except that
some schools are now putting re-
strictions and limitations on how
the local news media can cover
their school sporting events and ac-
In Pierre, an exclusive contract
between the school and a local
radio station prohibits a competing
local radio station or the local
newspaper from broadcasting
Pierre school athletic events. How-
ever, the restrictions don’t apply to
any out-of-town news media out-
In Sioux Falls, the public school
district sought to specifically pro-
hibit the local newspaper from
broadcasting high school football
and basketball games on the Inter-
Elsewhere, newspaper photogra-
phers are being unreasonably re-
stricted on how they can cover high
school competitions. Reporters are
limited on how they can use social
media such as Twitter and Face-
book to report live from a high
school game.
Schools offer a variety of reasons
for these restrictions. Mostly, it
boils down to money. Schools are
looking to make additional revenue
from the performances of students
on the field by placing restrictions
on how the local news media may
cover these events.
Incredible as it may sound, there
is a real trend toward more mone-
tization of high school sports.
That is why we are working for
passage of a bill in this legislative
session that would prohibit schools
from unreasonably restricting the
ability of local news media to do
their job. Senate Bill 119 would not
prohibit schools from generating
revenue through certain contracts
with media, so long as those con-
tracts do not restrict other media
from being able to do their job.
SB119 is not about creating any
special or new privilege for news
media in South Dakota. It only
tries to ensure the news media in
South Dakota can do what they
have always done when it comes to
reporting about high school sports
and activities.
Fans and supporters of high
school sports and activities expect
the local news media to be there,
creating a chronology and scrap-
book of memories and achieve-
ments through their stories, photos
and other media.
Urge your legislators to support
Senate Bill 119. Let’s make sure
the hometown news media can con-
tinue to do their job and live up to
the expectations of their readers
and viewers. Nothing more, noth-
ing less.
Legislative bill bolsters news media’s
ability to cover high school sports
by Dist. 27 Sen. Jim Bradford
Education continues to be the
dominant issue of our session. The
number of opt-outs now in effect is
alarming and proves that the state
continues to push the obligation to
fund our public schools to local tax-
payers. This school year 66 of our
151 public schools are currently in
an opt-out with many more dis-
tricts likely to try to pass one if the
state continues to underfund
The governor’s proposed budget
for kindergarten-12, brought forth
by the Department of Education to
Joint Appropriations this week, is
a request for a three percent in-
crease and would raise the funding
formula from $4,491 to $4,625 for
an increase of $134 per student.
(Inflation was actually 3.2 percent,
but the law says three percent or
the rate of inflation, whichever is
less). To put the amount in per-
spective, the 2008-09 per student
allocation was $4,642 so the FY14
amount is $17 less per student
than five years ago! We can and
must do better for our students.

Why Not to Apply
Fungicides to Wheat
Over the past several years, fo-
liar fungicide application on dry
land wheat has gone from a rela-
tively rare practice to one that
many producers consider auto-
There have been positive yield
responses from many of these ap-
plications, and with wheat com-
manding competitive market
prices, often positive economic re-
turns. The fear of missing out on
these potential yield responses and
economic returns has undoubtedly
fueled much of the increase in fun-
gicide use. The question is, do fo-
liar fungicide applications on dry
land wheat always pay, and do
routine fungicide applications
cause any harm?
The answer to the first question
is relatively obvious, no; foliar fun-
gicide applications do not always
produce sufficient yield increases
to pay for the application. In fact
they can produce yield decreases.
There are three wheat growth
stages where foliar fungicides are
applied, tiller (typically with a
post-emerge herbicide applica-
tion), flag leaf emergence, and
Applications at the tillering
stage are only recommended if
wheat is planted into wheat
residue, and only if a post-emerge
herbicide application is planned. If
the crop is not planted into wheat
residue, the main pathogens of
concern, septoria leaf blotch and
tanspot, are not present in the
field at a level to likely pose a
major threat. Adding the fungicide
to the tank when making an herbi-
cide application makes the cost
minimal, increasing the likelihood
of an economic return. Research
trials have produced no yield re-
sponse or negative yield responses
as well as positive yield responses.
Yield response is highly dependent
on weather conditions following
the application, and typically
amounts to only a few Bu/A when
they occur.
Factors favoring a flag leaf ap-
plication are: disease is appearing
on flag-1 and/or flag-2, the variety
is susceptible to fungal diseases,
the crop has good yield potential,
wet weather is forecast, the mar-
ket price of wheat is high, and the
cost of the fungicide application is
low. Flowering time applications
are mainly justified if scab risk is
high, and do offer protection from
late-season rusts if they move up
from the south. Flag leaf and flow-
ering time fungicide applications
either involve aerial application, or
damaging a small percentage of
the crop if application is made by
ground equipment, both of which
amount to considerably more input
cost than a tillering application.
To be effective, tillering, flag
leaf and flowering time fungicide
applications all need to be made
before the infestation of disease
becomes severe. In order to make
good decisions, fields must be
scouted and the factors favoring a
yield response considered. If yield
potential is limited due to hail,
winterkill, bacterial or viral dis-
ease, drought or other reasons, the
potential return to a fungicide ap-
plication is reduced.
The question, can routine fungi-
cide applications cause harm is not
as obvious. There are beneficial
fungi present in any crop field as
well as harmful species. These
fungi can be helpful in feeding on
bacteria, aphids, and possibly
other harmful pests, and fungi-
cides will control them as well as
the harmful fungi. Each chemical
application that is made to a crop
weakens the protective layer of the
leaves, making the plant more sus-
ceptible to moisture stress and to
bacterial disease. Microbial activ-
ity in the soil is desirable, and
fungicides are known to reduce it.
Fungicide application decisions
should not be taken lightly.

Two specialists from South Dakota State University Extension visited Philip to hold a food processing authority session, Fri-
day, January 25. Nine women participated in the hands-on lessons concerning canning jams – using regular pectin and
liquid pectin, and using no sugar/low sugar. Jean Hegerfeld-Baker and Sharon Guthmiller, both food safety specialists, dis-
cussed PH testing of foods for acidity, heat preservation (the science of home food processing), and legislative requirements
for selling food at farmer’s markets. The four-hour session was held in the Family and Consumer Science room of the Philip
High School. Participants were Suzanne England, Beth Flom and Carolyn Manke, all of Midland, Peggy Martin, Philip, Donna
Adrian and Jeannine Woodward, both of White River, Misty Welter, Presho, Jewell Bork, Okaton, and Jeri Olson, Belle Fourche.

The city of Faith, area producers
and South Dakota State University
Extension invite you to attend the
36th annual Rancher's Forum and
second annual Pen of Three Bull
Showcase at the Faith sale barn,
Thursday, February 7, from 10:00
a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The theme for the day is “Health,
Nutrition and the Economics that
tie them together.”
Adele Harty, SDSU Extension
cow/calf field specialist, will begin
the morning with a presentation on
alternative feed sources and the
considerations that need to be
made when including them in a
feeding program.
Gary Sides, nutritionist with
Pfizer Animal Health, will then
give a presentation on the relation-
ship between nutrition and im-
munology. He will focus on the fact
that it's not as simple as giving
calves a vaccination so they will be
able to fend off diseases. There are
many other factors, specifically nu-
trition, that play a role in the suc-
cess or failure of a vaccination pro-
To round out the program, Jack
Davis, SDSU Extension economics
field specialist, will tie it all to-
gether by talking about how the de-
cisions producers make affect their
bottom line. Strategic planning for
family farms and ranches as well
as financial analysis are major
areas of interest for Davis.
The other main event during the
day is the Pen of Three Bull Show-
case. This will be in the sale ring
from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. with
participants previewing bulls from
area producers. This is a non-com-
petitive show, just a chance for pro-
ducers and current or potential
customers to get together before
bull sale season hits full swing. If
you are interested in showing your
bulls in the Pen of Three Bull
Showcase, contact Ty Dieters at
There will be a trade show set up
as well as door prize drawings
throughout the day. The registra-
tion fee for the event is $10 per per-
son and preregistration by Febru-
ary 4 is strongly encouraged. To
preregister, call the city of Faith of-
fice at 605-967-2261. The meal is

Jim Moriarty was recently cho-
sen as New Underwood Good
Samaritan Center’s Resident of the
Week. Jim was born in New Under-
wood the day before World War II
His family story is quite interest-
ing. His father was born in Ireland
and came to the United States
around the age of 20. His father
lived in Chicago until he heard of a
train taking people to jobs in Cali-
fornia. Jim’s father then took that
train and got off in Philip. He
stayed there and got married and
had two boys.
Jim never married nor did he
have any children; however, he
loves his brother’s family, including
all seven of his nieces and
Jim worked as a ranch hand, on
missile sites, at the Philip sale
barn and for all of his neighbors.
He has traveled all over the United
States. He has never flown in a
large airplane, but he used to ride
in a small two seated plane piloted
by a cousin.
The staff at the Good Samaritan
Center testify that Jim has a great
sense of humor and a positive out-
look. He always has a smile on his
face and never has a bad day. He is
full of drive and determination and
never gives up.
Moriarty is Good Sam’s

Friday, January 18, 2013, at
Somerset Court we had good fun
with hat day and liberal Somerset
bucks for those who wore hats.
Irene McKnight has a big Russian
fur hat, which she wore. She has a
little story she likes to tell about
that hat. It had been stored in a
hat box on a high shelf back at the
ranch, and she wanted it for Som-
erset Court’s 1912 hat day. She
sent her grandson to get the hat,
and when he reached into the box,
he thought it was a live animal.
We had Wii bowling with scores
as follows: Jim Holmes, 156, Addie
Rorvig, 179, Eileen, 149, Irene
McKnight, 157, Fred Smith, 146,
Marge Self, 139, Irene Cox, 158,
and Mary Lou Peters, 76.
We had a fire drill, no problem,
many people were out and many of
us were in the activity garden and
we only needed to go to the dining
room for a while.
Agnes and Vivian had a game of
scrabble with our scores close to a
tie. Thank you for the chocolates,
Agnes. There was a table of rummi-
cube and a table of an unidentified
Several residents watched the
rerun of the movie, “The Strange
Life of Timothy Green.” I think the
lesson was that we need to accept
people, warts and all.
Marge Self and Marilyn Butts
got in a practice game of pool. Good
work, girls.
Thursday, there was good partic-
ipation on the Somerset Court bus
trip to the Open Bible lunch and
entertainment. The bus was full, so
Sandy sat on the steps.
Ken Monette had visitors Friday,
his granddaughter and her hus-
band, Amy and Jason Linton,
Austin, Texas. They were to spend
a few days with Ken.
Saturday, January 19, 2013, a
group of Somerset Court residents
attended the funeral for Mary
Klauck’s husband, Bill. Some of
Mary’s family brought a card for
Somerset Court, and a beautiful
arrangement of flowers. I was first
acquainted with Mary about three
years ago when I first moved here.
We would get rides to Fairmont
Grand Manor where her husband
was and I had friends, Frances and
Saturday we had exercises with
bonus bucks for attendance. Thank
you for this activity, Susan. Then
we played a little quiddler until
lunch. Those playing were Addie
Rorvig, Marcella Kraft, Irene Cox,
Susan, Lucille Huether, and Vivian
Hansen. In the afternoon, Susan
gave us the activity of figurine
painting. Those participating were
Fred Smith, Marilyn Butts, Marge
Self, Eileen Tenold, Floy Olson and
Irene Cox. Maxine and Margaret
came to look on.
The Rapid City Journal on Fri-
day, January 19, had a big color

dan Hansen, at a church breakfast.
The church is at Hermosa, where
they have fresh baked cinnamon
rolls along with their morning serv-
My son, Wayne, and wife Gwynn
Hansen, Rancho Palos Verdes,
Calif., sent a pretty card from he
eastern Caribbean Sea. It has pho-
tos of several tropical flowers and
trees. I recognize the hibiscus and
the bird-of-paradise. They said it is
warm and beautiful there. Well it
is warm and beautiful in here at
Somerset Court, too! You won’t
need your winter woolen sweaters.
The Philip, S.D., Pioneer Review,
January 17, 2012, had a thoughtful
article by Kindra Gordon, about
the value of tree lots. Trees are
windbreaks for cattle and can save
much feed because the animals
don’t have to use as much feed for
body warmth.
Sunday, January 20, at Somer-
set Court, we had church with
Terry Pulse, and Ardyce, Steve and
Jack. Thank you all for being there.
Jack’s prelude was “God of Abra-
ham Praise.” Steve offered a prayer
for Charlie Hathaway, who is usu-
ally at church, as Charlie is in the
hospital. We were to be thinking of
others at this time who could use a
prayer. There was some talk of fa-
vorite Bible verses, and Bill Lutz
recited John 3:16. and Terry came
up with, “Jesus wept.” Maybe
sometime, each one present can re-
cite a favorite verse. Mine would be
Solomon 23:6
After church, Shawn and Sandy
came in on their day off and gave
us a cheese and wine tasting party.
Thank you to our activity directors.
We had two kinds of non-alcoholic
wines and an assortment of crack-
ers and delicious cheeses. We also
had grapes and strawberries, hot
coffee and miniature butterfinger
candy bars. Father Dahms brought
around several amusing cartoons
about wine-tasting, and Shawn’s
boys, Jamie and Jeremy Hostutler,
entertained us with building
houses of cards.
Monday, January 21, 2013, at
Somerset Court, we had the activ-
ity of crafts with Amy. Thank you
to our volunteer, Amy. Sandy was
there to help too. We constructed
colorful figures in a St. Valentine
motif. Attending were Fred Smith,
Mildred Young and helper Kay,
Eileen Tenold, Mary Lou Peters,
Addie Rorvig, Marge Self, and Vi-
vian Hansen. Diane of the house-
keeping staff brought her six-year-
old, Neveah, to join the group. She
made a St. Valentine bear. Jeri and
Becky and Marcella looked on.
Amy has put out new word
searches. Find them in a rack on
the wall just north of the bulletin
board. Amy will check them and
award generous Somerset Court
bucks. After crafts, Mary Lou,
Sandy, Addie and Vivian played a
game of up-words. This game has
some of the aspects of scrabble.
However, the letters each have the
value of one. Points are accumu-
lated by changing words, by plac-
ing letters on top of one another.
They can go five high. As in scrab-
ble, words must spell both ways.
(Qu=one tile.) At the end of the
game, unused letters set the owner
back five points each.
Somerset Court now has a stair
chair, a piece of equipment to aid in
emergency evacuations. One adult
can operate the chair. It is very re-
assuring to us to have this latest
addition to our safety features. We
will be practicing stair climbing
January 30. We are hoping to facil-
itate the required practice evacua-
tions and accomplish them in a bet-
ter time frame.
My granddaughter, Crystal
Denke Jackson, Huntington Beach,
Calif., had written another of her
planting accounts. She has been re-
potting her amaryllis bulbs, two 14
inch pots full. (They bloom pink
and white stripes.) When she
turned the root ball out, she had to
pry them apart with a crowbar. She
now has two 18 inch pots with
eight bulbs each and two 14 inch
pots with eight bulbs each. The rest
had to go to the backyard. She has
three red cyclamens in pots and
some orange nasturtiums in bloom.
January 22, the Rapid City Jour-
nal had an article about using the
blue wood from pine trees damaged
by pine beetles. At the Custer
courthouse, local wood artist and
builder, Karl Svensson, has
thought of uses for the wood which
turns blue due to a fungus (fungus
harmless to humans). He made a
prototype of a pretty medallion to
be used as a fundraiser. Swensson
has made a line of the blue wood
picture frames for sale. And he is a
building an elaborate home near
Edgemont. The article by Frank
Carroll tells us that we will want
the items made of this beautiful
blue wood. A way to capitalize on
an otherwise severe disater.
My Somerset Court tablemate,
Irene McKnight’s, daughter, Gloria
Crumet, now lives in Sturgis. She
phoned Irene recently.
Somerset Court resident, Irene
Cox, had company at lunch Tues-
day, January 22, her sister, Mar
Larson, and friend Alice Richter,
both from New Underwood.
Myrna Pokorney had company at
lunch Tuesday, her daughter, Con-
nie Weiss, Black Hawk.
Tuesday bingo winners were
Alma Gruenig, Marge Self, Addie
Rorvig, twice, Irene Arbach, Mil-
dred Young, Marilyn Oyler, Mari-
lyn Butts. For snack and chat we
had fresh mozzarella cheese sticks
with hot coffee and ice water. We
had s’mores for dessert at supper.
We are completely spoiled.
January 23, 2013, at Somerset
Court, our activity directors
counted up our $20 Somerset bucks
and gave us the same value in
$100s and $1,000. Thank you. We
also had a pleasant activity called
show and tell and several residents
brought keepsakes and antiques.
Sara Lee Stark had several of her
beautifully embroidered items.
Anne Brink brought two eloquent
statuaries. One was a shoemaker,
reminiscent of her own father who
was a shoemaker. Agnes Tastad
brought a beautiful preserved big
butterfly from Madagascar, and an
inlaid teakwood tray. Marilyn
Oyler brought Lemuel’s U.S. Army
flag in its triangular box, along
with some of his Army photos.
Mary Lou Peters brought a gold
and silver jewelry pendant from
Norway which she had had for 50
years. Edna Wulff brought tin
types of her great-grandfather.
(Tin types are actually on thin
sheets of iron, not tin. Jim and
Eleanor Holmes brought framed
pictures of Cape Elizabeth, Maine,
lighthouse and one of Jim with a
son. Margaret (Lymam) Jacobs
brought some very good grade
school report cards. Vivian showed
her 1928 valentine and her music
box that plays, “Mocking Bird Hill.”
Wednesday we had good fun
with kazoos.
Wayne Hansen of California
phoned. He said that Marie
Hansen of Philip had passed away.
My sympathy to relatives and
Delores (O’Dea) Herscher died
recently. My sympathy to relatives
and friends. Her folks wer neigh-
bors of my folks. Also, Delores is
the sister of Mary (Mrs. Kenneth
Hansen). She was a cousin of my
brother-in-law, Walter Meyer. I
still owe Delores eight dollars for a
steak she bought for me when we
were down in Nebraska for Eric
Hansen’s wedding. A little memory
that goes with that trip is a lonely
little hemp plant in a churchyard
that we walked by.

toric 70th anniversary of the sink-
ing of the United States Army
Transport Dorchester and the leg-
endary acts of selflessness of four
Army chaplains who were aboard.
Four Chaplains Day, as Con-
gress has declared the date, honors
the four chaplains who went down
with their ship, as they gave their
life jackets to other passengers.
Legion posts nationwide are en-
couraged to commemorate the an-
niversary each February. This
year, memorial services will be
held on February 3. Posts inter-
ested in conducting their own serv-
ices on the date should email the
Legion’s Americanism and Chil-
dren and Youth Division at acy@le-
gion.org for information on arrang-
ing a memorial service.
The Four Chaplains, sometimes
called the Immortal Chaplains,
were men from four different reli-
gions who sacrificed their lives for
men of all faiths. In the 70 years
since the incident, Methodist min-
ister George L. Fox, Reformed
Church in America minister Clark
V. Poling, Roman Catholic priest
John P. Washington, and Rabbi
Alexander B. Goode have been im-
mortalized with commemorative
postage stamps, a Congressionally
recognized anniversary and nu-
merous re-telling of their heroics.
Three years ago, the “American
Legion Magazine” published a de-
tailed account of the events of Feb-
ruary 3, 1943, the date that the
USAT Dorchester was scuttled by
a German U-boat.

While sitting at my computer
this Monday morning, snow is
softly coming down. If it continues
like this throughout the night we
will have some measurable snow
by morning. Being a wet snow it is
covering the trees and the earth
with a blanket of snow. Have you
noticed how a snow such as this
seems to put a hush over the earth?
It’s a good day for book reading,
don’t you think? The ladies at the
book store in Pierre are just plain
helpful, as they broaden my hori-
zons to books, by authors, I have
not heard of before. I am presently
reading, “The Amethyst Heart” by
Penelope J. Stokes. Oh, what a
good book! One of those books that
is hard to put down, as it takes you
on life changing journeys of folks,
who take hold of your heart.
In reading the ‘Blast from the
Past’ column in last weeks Pioneer
Review, I found a part in the 75
years ago section, an interesting
read. It told of Harry C. Schofield
being the winner in the statewide
rattlesnake killing contest. His
winning total was 324 rattles; the
rattles were given to the state
game and fish department in
Pierre. Now, I didn’t know Harry
Schofield personally, but I do know
many of his family members. Just
between you and me, I would not
care to hunt rattlesnakes, the fur-
ther I am from them the better.
Emily Rose Gertie, just received
a very outstanding award from her
school. Emily is the daughter of Tr-
isha (Anderson) and Cary Gertie,
and the granddaughter of Tina
(Fosheim) Haug of Colorado and
George Anderson, Midland, and re-
cently received an award at her
school. She attends Singing Hills
Elementary School which has 450
students enrolled near Parker,
Emily was the first person in
her school to get 100 “pawsitives”
which are: 1) Positive Attitude 2)
Acting Responsible 3) Willing to
Learn and 4) Safe Choices. To ac-
knowledge this, the school has
placed her name up in lights on a
marquee in front of the school for a
week. Congratulations, Emily!
Emily has a whole lot of relatives
in this area and her mom, Trisha,
went to the Midland school for a
time. Thank you to grandma Tina,
who graduated from Midland High
School, for sending me this infor-
Karel Reiman headed for Man-
dan, N.D. a week ago Friday to the
home of her son, Steve Reiman,
having a chance to visit with Steve
and his two kids, 11-year-old
Patrick and eight-year-old Becca.
Friday, Steve, Becca and grandma
Karel went to watch the Boy Scouts
derby race car event of which
Patrick was a part of. The Boy
Scouts were previously given a kit
which they were to use in the mak-
ing of a small wooden race car
derby. The kids had a great time
and parents and grandparents en-
joyed it as well. Saturday, Becca
took part in a girls’ basketball
game of which Steve, Patrick and
grandma Karel were there to cheer
her on. At home, Karel and her
grandkids enjoyed doing some sci-
ence experiments from a kit the
kids had gotten at Christmas. Sun-
day it was church and Sunday
school, some more time of visiting,
and then Monday morning, Karel
headed for home after an enjoyable
time spent with family.
Debbie Trapp, Chauncey and
Emily, headed for Rapid City Fri-
day evening as the kids were tak-
ing part in a 4-H livestock judging
event early Saturday morning.
Chauncey and Emily are members
of a 4-H club in Pierre. The 4-H
group is to judge the quality and
etc. of livestock and take a written
test, as well. Chauncey’s group and
Emily’s group received first in the
judging contest. Congratulations,
Arline Petoske has been moved
from the Silverleaf Assisted Living
in Philip to the Philip Nursing
Home. So, if you have a chance,
stop in for a visit. She misses her
friends at the Silverleaf.
Life’s journey has changes and
adjustments that is a fact.
Sunday, Cass Finn, son of Shad
and Jenna Finn, celebrated his
eighth birthday with a party at the
home of his folks with dinner, cake
and ice cream and the fun of open-
ing birthday presents. Those there
to enjoy the party with Cass were
his parents, Shad and Jenna, and
brother Cole, grandpa and
grandma, Gene and Theresa
Deuchar, grandpa and grandma,
Danny and Deanna Finn, aunts
and uncles, Keith and Cheryl
Harry and Shane and Melissa
Finn, Kahler and Abby. Happy
birthday, Cass!
Midland students, combined
with students from Long Valley,
had a fifth and sixth grade basket-
ball game Friday night at Midland,
in which they played kids from
Murdo. Some of the Midland kids
taking part were Kash and Kaelan
Block and Branden McLaughlin.
Kids have so much fun at that age
and are fun to watch as they work
to get that ball down the floor and
go up for a basket.
I was sorry to hear my aunt, Ida
Hunt, is not doing well. Keith
Hunt, Christine Niedan and Teresa
Palmer visited their mom Satur-
day. Roy and Carol Hunt went to
see her Sunday. Jan Tolton and
Michelle Meinzer work at the nurs-
ing home, so see their mom often.
Memories of Ida go back a long
ways. And just between you and
me, Ida is the reason I am now
writing the Midland News. She
talked me into it. Some days I
thank her for the opportunity and
other days I am thinking, “Okay
Ida, what have you gotten me
into?” Praying for God’s comfort for
Ida, as her life’s journey, for now, is
not easy!
Our daughter-in-law, Stephanie
Nemec, got word that her
grandma, her dad’s mom, had
passed away. Stephanie shared
having good memories of her
grandma. Was sorry she never got
to meet little Laura. But, thanks to
modern technology, her grandma
got to see videos Stephanie had
taken of Laura, sending them over
the Internet. The most recent was
of Laura crawling and jabbering
away. Her grandma had com-
mented on how happy she was to
see that video. Stephanie said her
grandma was 87 and was able to
live her life in her own home. That
is a wonderful thing and as
Stephanie said, her grandma is
now in a better place. Stephanie’s
mom, and her other grandma, are
coming from Germany to spend
time with Stephanie, Christopher
and Laura the later part of April
and early May.
Family got word that Mary
(Hand) Prerryman of Sioux Falls
passed away January 27, 2013.
Ivan Schanzenbach and I were vis-
iting about Mary by phone last
night. Mary, and Ivan’s sister,
Joan, were friends, were class-
mates, both graduating from Mid-
land High School in 1951. I remem-
ber Mary’s parents, Percy and Ce-
leste Hand. Percy had this ready
laugh and Celeste was a 4-H leader
for many of us country kids. I re-
member of my uncle John
Schanzenbach, Percy and Pete Fos-
heim driving to the mailbox in the
country where they each got their
mail. It was there at Keller’s Cor-
ner, as people called it, near the
baseball field. The three of them
would go early having a chance to
visit before the mailman came. Our
sympathies to Mary’s family and
her siblings, Dave and Laura
Hand, Tom and Lani Hand, and
Kathleen Hand, Kennewick, Wash.
Woke up this Tuesday morning
to a beautiful wonderland of snow!
Though there wasn’t much snow,
what there was, covered the land
with an awesome beauty. One of
those nice things about living in
rural America U.S.A! Looking out
the kitchen window early Tuesday
morning it wasn’t fully daylight.
The ground was covered in white
and there was snow on the
branches of the trees and bushes.
It was a peaceful scene! And then,
the sun shone brightly over the
land. It was absolutely beautiful. I
call it one of God’s blessings for the
day. It was a picture perfect mo-
ment. Just love those moments,
don’t you?
As I close my column for this
week, I ask that you take time for
those unexpected blessings that
come your way. Take time to smell
the roses! For in the business of
life, we sometimes forget to take
time for those unexpected blessings
that come our way. Those moments
that in a heart beat vanishes. As I
close my column for this week, I
leave you with a saying from my
Amish calendar this 29th day of
January. “If you can’t have the best
of everything, make the best of
everything you have.” Have a good
day, and a good week!

Greetings from sunny, snow-cov-
ered, a little bit slippery northeast
Haakon County. We received some
much needed moisture yesterday
in the form of intermittent snow
and rain showers, which translated
into slippery conditions this morn-
ing. The trees and shrubs are still
covered with yesterday's snow,
which is gorgeous to look at. And
since the snow is still on the
branches, you can tell that we
haven't had any of the wind that
we are famous for in these parts.
Thank goodness for small bless-
The Black Hills Stock Show is in
full swing in Rapid City, so several
folks from the community have
made their way west to take in the
event. One of our neighbors, T.J.
Gabriel, was surprised Sunday
evening when he was awarded the
2013 Honored Breeder of the Year
Award from the Black Hills Angus
Association. Congratulations to
T.J. and Jeanine – all the hard
work is paying off! Keep up the
good work!
My sympathy to the family and
friends of Ruby (Briggs) Morgan.
Ruby passed away last Thursday
in Oregon at the age of 99, and her
funeral will be held Wednesday in
Silverton, Ore. Ruby was born and
raised here on Robbs Flat, and her
surviving siblings are Ruth
Neuhauser, Earl Briggs, and Fred
Briggs, as well as sister-in-law
Marge Briggs. Ruth said Ruby was
sort of a second mother to her and
her younger brothers.
Condolences also to the family of
Mary (Hand) Perryman who
passed away last Sunday in Sioux
Falls at the age of 79. She was the
sister of Tom Hand, David Hand,
and Kathi Hand. Her funeral will
be held Wednesday in Sioux Falls.
One good thing about living in
the country is all the wildlife, but
recently the abundance of coyotes
and other varmints in the area
have been keeping our dog pretty
agitated. Randy said he thinks it is
coyote pups running circles around
the dog, but there are skunks still
making their presence known also.
The poor dog is probably feeling
pretty overwhelmed! I know there
have been big cats and even a wolf
spotted in our community in the
past few months. I hope they stay
away once the baby calves start
hitting the ground.
Ruth Neuhauser had a nice visit
from Don Sandal last Thursday.
Don was in Highmore to attend a
basketball game. Ruth also said
that her daughter, Connie, and
Connie's husband, Bunky, are
preparing to begin their travels
again with their educational agri-
culture exhibit. Their route this
year begins in Florida. Through the
years, Connie and Bunky have ed-
ucated a lot of people about where
their food comes from and various
other aspects of animal agriculture.
They are to be commended for their
Lee and Mary Briggs had a visit
from their granddaughter, Cattib-
rie Riggle, Saturday. Cattibrie
helped with some projects at the
ranch and tried on a dress that
Grandma Mary is making for an
upcoming formal in Pierre. Cattib-
rie then headed to Whitewood to
visit her Aunt Keva and take in
some of the stock show activities. I
visited at Briggs' Saturday after-
noon to see their new bathroom re-
model projects – they look wonder-
Mary Briggs said that Lil Briggs
went to the emergency room early
last week because of a nose bleed
that wouldn't seem to quit. Then
later in the week, she had a prob-
lem with some medication. But
now Lil is doing well at her home
near Pierre.
Billy and Arlyne Markwed at-
tended funeral services for Maxine
Norman in Pierre last week. Sun-
day, they attended church at Deep
Creek, then they headed to Rapid
City to be on hand to watch their
grandson, T.J., receive his award at
the stock show. The family knew
about the award, but T.J. was sur-
prised. Arlyne said it was perhaps
the only time she has ever seen T.J.
at a loss for words! Other family
members on hand for the award
ceremony were Cindy and Bruce
Bresee, Larry and Callie Gabriel,
and Jim and Mary Harmon.
Lola Roseth went to Rapid City
Friday. She visited her mother, Joy
Klima, and Joy and Lola did some
shopping. Saturday and Sunday,
Lola attended EMT training at
Rapid City Regional Hospital. She
returned home Sunday evening.
Things have been quieter at Nels
and Dorothy Paulson's place. They
were in town last Tuesday to get
some repairs, and Dorothy at-
tended church Sunday. When I
talked to Dorothy Monday, Nels
was in the process of gathering up
cats to get them all fed at the barn.
It sounds like they have quite a
number of cats, but Dorothy said
there are no mice to be seen, so it
sounds like the cats are doing their
Frank and Shirley Halligan at-
tended a basketball game in Faith
Friday. Sunday, they were in town
to attend Irene Caldwell's 100th
birthday party. Several friends and
neighbors gathered for a card party
in honor of Irene's special day, with
Irene keeping her place at the head
table the whole time! Ken Halligan
also attended the festivities.
Happy birthday to Irene!
Max and Joyce Jones attended
funeral services for friend and
neighbor Maxine Norman last
week. Joyce also provided hot
lunch to the students at Cheyenne
School one day. Evidently every
few weeks, one of the parents pro-
vides hot lunch for the students.
And although Joyce is a grand-
mother rather than a mother of the
students, she offered to take her
turn at providing lunch also. I'm
sure the students enjoyed the
homemade buns and barbecues
that Joyce provided, and Darcy
Jones brought a birthday cake in
honor of son Luke's birthday. Luke
also told the students and teachers
that his Grandma Joyce makes
wonderful caramel rolls, so she will
be bringing another treat to the
school! Lucky them!
Raymond and Nancy Neuhauser
attended the prayer service for
Maxine Norman last week. Mon-
day, Nancy learned that one of her
cousins who lived in Florida had
passed away unexpectedly.
Bill and Polly Bruce attended
Maxine Norman's funeral last
Wednesday. Thursday, their son,
Vince, went to Union Center for
supplies. Also on Thursday, Bill
and Vince delivered some feed to
Donnie Kirkpatrick's and stayed
for a visit. Saturday, Bill and Polly
were in Pierre to attend the funeral
of Scotty Robinson. Scotty was a
high school classmate of Bill's, and
they joined the Army at the same
time. Following the funeral, Bill
and Polly attended church in
Pierre and had supper before re-
turning to the ranch. They spent
Sunday at home, and their son,
Vince, had play practice at Hayes.
This is a good time to remind
people to mark the dates of March
8, 9, and 10 on your calendars.
Those are the dates for the upcom-
ing Hayes play, a comedy entitled
"Bay at the Moon." The group al-
ways does a great job!
Kevin Neuhauser was in Pierre
Friday tearing out some cabinets at
their home there in preparation for
their kitchen remodeling project. I
can't wait to see the finished prod-
uct! Kevin spent the night in Pierre
Friday, then helped with breakfast
at the local Masonic Lodge Satur-
day. Later in the day Saturday,
Kevin and Mary watched their
nieces and nephews in some sport-
ing events. Kevin and Mary re-
turned to the ranch Saturday
It was another busy week for
Clint and Laura Alleman. Monday,
Laura and Alivya went to Hayes to
help out a little. Wednesday, Clint
went to town for parts. Later, Clint
and Laura met Levi Neuharth and
Randy and Joy Yost at Hayes to
work on the stage for the upcoming
play, followed by place practice.

Greetings from Rochester, Minn.
Bill and I have been here since
Wednesday evening, settled in for
the celebration of being married 52
years. It seems the older we get
and the longer we are married, we
pick a hospital to celebrate in. Last
year it was the UCLA Ronald Rea-
gan Medical Center in Los Angeles,
Calif. This year it will be a miracle
if we get home before February 6,
which marks the day.
January 21, Monday, a light
snow covered the ground during
the light and was eight degrees in
the morning, with flurries during
the day. Bill made some deliveries
for me when he went to Philip in
the afternoon, while I took care of
things needed to be done before we
kept appointments in Rochester.
Tony Harty had a tough week
fighting back a cold. Don’t know
who won yet since he’s still doing
battle. He has been keeping in tele-
phone contact with his friends,
L.D. and Shirley Hair as well as
with his sister, Thresea Hocken-
bary, Valentine, Neb., and us.
Don and Vi Moody were shop-
ping in Kadoka Tuesday afternoon
and had a fun visit with Veryl and
Charlie Prokop at a local store.
They stopped by Marsha and Bill
Sumpter’s later in the afternoon to
wish them well on their trip to
Rochester, Minn. Bill was playing
cards so missed out on hot choco-
late served with marshmellows by
Marsha. Secret recipe! (Want to
clarify this comment, it’s amazing
how different fresh marshmellows
taste than those that are a couple
of years old.)
I made a quick trip to the dump,
bank, post office and other business
around town Tuesday. Phyllis
Word stopped by for a visit and
many called to see if they could
help during the time we would be
gone. We are so blessed to have
such great folks in our lives.
Kinsey Gittings took George Git-
tings to Pierre Tuesday for a doc-
tor's appointment.
Wednesday morning, Bill and I
were on the road to Rochester. It
was nice we could have lunch with
grandson Eric Seager and grand-
daughter Amanda Claflin in Sioux
Falls, a great halfway break, then
settled in at a motel in Rochester.
It was minus four degrees when we
arrived. Snow pants, moon boots
and all winter clothes are tucked in
the car as cold insurance.
Sandee Gittings was in Kadoka
Wednesday afternoon on Farmers
Union business.
Don and Vi Moody made a trip to
Rapid City Thursday for a few days
and looked for a pet door with an
electronic opener. Who likes to go
out just to let the pets out when it's
single digits in South Dakota.
Bill and I were busy with ap-
pointments most all day Thursday
in preparation for surgery Friday.
The goal of the surgery was to find
what was causing continued infec-
tion and remove if possible and re-
verse the colostomy and possibly
repair a very larger surgical her-
nia. We almost got sidelined when
it appeared Bill’s heart was acting
up, but at the last minute, it was
determined the hiccup on the EKG
wasn’t detrimental. We did run
into a few folks from Philip and
hear of others that were at the
Mayo Clinic for treatment.
Sandee Gittings took a cat to the
vet in Kadoka Thursday afternoon
that had an infected tooth. The
tooth had come out but the cat had
to have a shot and is doing great
Sincere sympathy in the passing
of Jim Hewitt as well as Marie
Hansen, both longtime friends in
the Philip area.
Friday was a long day. The re-
port-in time was 8:00 a.m, and
from there time went slow. Bill was
taken to surgery about 10:00 a.m.
and brought to his room about 9:00
p.m. While I was waiting for the
long day to end on the fifth floor,
along with one couple waited for
their daughter, her childhood girl-
friend, and the wife and daughter
of another surgical patient, we vis-
ited and enjoyed distractions from
the events of the day. As our loved
ones arrived, we all went our differ-
ent directions and settled them in,
then each of us kept a close vigil in
the rooms, venturing out for the
walks and comfort ice and things
for the patients. Saturday, Bill was
up and walking and doing very
well. My waiting room friends were
pleased with the progress each of
their patients were making too.
However, a change of medication
sent Bill and me to the ICU unit
about 9:00 p.m and it wasn’t until
Sunday I ran into my “waiting
room groupies.” Chris had gone to
all the floors in an effort to find us.
They had been frantic to find out
what had happened and nobody
could tell them. We happened to
meet in the cafeteria and it was
hugs all around and they were so
glad we were fine. Names and ad-
dresses were exchanged and now
we have friends from Georgia,
Texas and Nebraska. An invite to
Kadoka was extended and all is
good. With freezing rain, snow, etc.
forecast and actually arriving, I
stayed in the room with Bill for the
night Sunday.
Sandee Gittings went to Rapid
City Saturday for the gathering for
her cousin, Elma Reynolds, who
had passed away and wanted no
Cathy Fiedler reported that
weatherwise in the Sturgis area,
mornings have been cold but the
days have been nice. Temperatures
in the 50s a couple of days and
melted the snow and ice that was
around. Saturday, Eric and Sherry
Hanson and kids went to the Black
Hills Stock Show. On their way
back, they stopped and joined
Ralph and Cathy Fiedler and Gene
and Sonja Nonnast from White-
wood for supper. After supper, the
Hanson family headed for home.
The others joined a group of gals
from the nursing home to say good
bye to a nurse who was leaving for
another job. A good time was en-
joyed by all.
Sandee Gittings and Jessica Git-
tings were on the road to Iowa
Sunday, hoping they missed the
nasty weather predicted. More on
that next week.
Sunday, Sherry, Elsie and
Loman Hanson, and Don, Lynette,
Hanna and Tessa Klumb and her
friend, Brayden, joined Ralph and
Cathy Fiedler for dinner to cele-
brate Ralph’s birthday. Eric Han-
son was at Sherdan Lake at a fish-
ing derby for the day and Caitlin
Klumb was at work, so they missed
the festiities. After lunch, Lynette,
Sherry and Cathy did some plan-
ning for their family gathering in
June. They all then enjoyed a ice
cream cake that the Klumbs
brought, and sang happy birthday
to grandpa. Then everyone headed
for home to get ready for the week’s
“Life is full of surprises and

well, enjoy it – and then, not now,

13-81 Superintendent Keven Morehart
reported on the following items on behalf
of Secondary Principal Mike Baer: (A)
8th Grade Computers - students take the
course and have to pass the exam to re-
ceive High School credit. This credit is
not needed for state requirements, only
Philip’s. Students transferring in still need
to pick up the credit. A proposal is being
written to drop the requirement but keep
the class for 8th graders. This just means
that if they fail the exam, they don’t have
to retake the course if they pass the class
traditionally. It also means transfer stu-
dents would not need to make up the
credit. (B) Another student has tested out
of Guided Study Hall for a total of 9 out
of 22 testing out. (C) Six students at-
tended the JH/MS Academic Olympics.
They gained some great experience
there. (D) Sixteen students performed
with the One Act Play on Sunday, Janu-
ary 13th. They will go to Region compe-
tition on January 16th. (E) High School
classrooms have been locking doors.
13-82 Superintendent Keven Morehart
reported on the following items: (A)
Handed out the Superintendent’s evalu-
ation for completion by the next meeting.
(B) The Deep Creek School Christmas
program was tremendous. There were
about 50 people in attendance. (C) 6th,
7th and 8th graders attended an Aca-
demic Olympics. (D) We had some
server issues which disabled printing
through the network. Some local and
state assistance has been here helping
to get things restored. (E) The PHS
Wrestling tournament was cancelled due
to weather, but a big thank you to those
who had helped in preparing for it! (F)
Dakota Smiles Mobile Dental will be here
at a date to be determined.
Adjournment at 5:52 PM. Will meet in

Does the time ever fly when you
are busy. I sometimes wonder why
people get bored because there is
nothing to do. All I can say, is just
look around you and you can al-
ways find something to do.
Bake some cookies or a loaf of
sweet bread for a shut in, go get the
mail for someone who is laid up for
awhile, or just pay a visit to them.
You don’t have to stay long and
they will be happy that you
thought of them and you helped to
pass their day.
If you are shut in yourself, you
can always make a phone call or
send a card to someone else. I know
a lady in Philip who goes and helps
others serve lunch at a funeral
even though she does not belong to
their church.
You can always do a little some-
thing. If everyone does a little, the
job gets done. You will find you
don’t get bored and you also may
make a new friend her and there,
on your adventure of helping out
when you can.
Weatherwise, it has been up and
down, but nothing we can fuss
about. We have had pretty decent
weather so far, but if we are going
to get that much needed moisture,
we will have to take a little winter
to get it. It sounds like they will
need a lot more to get some runoff
from the hills we all depend on.
I remember Kenneth saying he
had a hard time in the ‘49 blizzard
getting into the barn to get to the
cattle because of such high drifts.
He said that he finally scooped the
haymow door open and went down
to them that way. He had some hay
in the haymow and would throw it
down on their backs, so they did get
some feed.
I understood that after that bliz-
zard, the winter was not too bad. I
lived in the Black Hills then and it
was not too bad up there. My
brother, Lee, came down, and along
with others, skinned cattle in the
Philip area for quite a while. Axel
Olson had just finished putting up
a new barn for Kenneth and they
did not get the tin on the roof or get
it painted, but it was a lifesaver for
the cattle that year.
He said he had kept back two
twin steer calves and they were
two-years-old in ‘49. They were in
with the cows and when he finally
did get shoveled into the barn, he
made a narrow path and those
steers broke a path out to where he
had some cane shocks showing due
to the snow drifting off. The cattle
finally got fed.
Since I have lived here we have
had some good three-day blizzards.
We would string a wire from the
yard post to the shop and then on
over to the barn. Kenneth would al-
ways make me keep a light on in
the window that faced the barn. He
also would leave the yard light on
if there was a blizzard, just in case
someone needed to find his way to
shelter from being stranded on the
road near our place.
If our 32 volt light plant kept
working we did have electricity,
but there were times when we
would have to use flashlights and
would turn on a tractor light in the
barn. We would do this very spar-
ingly so we didn’t run the tractor
battery down. Many of those times,
we would be calving and would
have to haul a baby calf to the
house to keep him alive.
Those were the good old days, as
people say. Well, I like the more
modern things that came along
years later and they are getting

better as time goes by. Marvin’s
have little tubs they call warmers
that plug into electricity. They get
a calf warm and dry in no time. We
have two of them that sit inside the
shop and they sure do a keep the
calves from chilling down. Marvin
will no doubt be using them again
soon as he starts calving about
March 3. Well that is enough about
the weather, so better get to the
rest of the news.
Herb and Hazel Sieler went to
Yuma, Ariz., to visit Herb’s sister,
Sandra Blake. They had a really
wonderful time catching up on all
that had happened since they last
saw each other. They said it was
very cold there and it froze a lot of
their fruit and vegetables. They did
get out and get some of the fruit
picked as they had some warning
prior to the freeze.
Herb and Hazel took the south-
ern route back home due to bad
road conditions elsewhere. They en-
joyed traveling through the sand
dunes in California. Their trip was
saddened by the new of two deaths
in the family of Hazel’s brother-in-
law, and Herb’s cousin, Marvin Mc-
Saturday, January 26, Herb and
Hazel went to Rapid City and
toured the exhibits at the Black
Hills Stock Show and then went to
hear Christy Nome’s forum on the
farm bill. They said it was very in-
teresting and a lot of questions
were asked and that she did a nice
job of answering them.
Herb and Hazel attended the
agriculture appreciation steak din-
ner in Wall. They reported that the
steaks were really good. After din-
ner they stayed and listened to the
Twin Rivers band who were play-
ing. There were many young chil-
dren dancing and it was fun watch-
ing them.
Bob Thorson, along with about 30
other from the Philip and Wall
area, went to the annual men’s golf
Bob, Jodi and her folks, Ed and
Cleon, went to the nursing home
January 22 to dance. They said that
it was nice to see Max Hauk and his
wife back playing again. Others
there was Chuck and Ruth
Carstensen and their grandson and
others from the local community.
Saturday was Jodi’s dad, Ed’s,
79th birthday, so they all went to
Rapid City for dinner and then they
shopped for carpet and linoleum for
the house. Jodi will have all her re-
modeling and spring cleaning done
early this year. Thursday evening,
they went to bingo in Wall, so it has
been a very busy and entertaining
week at their place.
Beth Smith, along with the rest
of the staff where she works, left
Wednesday to the Rocky Mountain
Dental Convention in Denver, Colo.
She returned late Friday night.
Their grandkids, Sawyer and Cade,
spent Saturday with Mel and Beth.
They all went out to Brock and
Brittany Smith’s to spend some
time visiting with Brittany’s
mother, Bonnie Fitzgerald, who is
spending some time here visiting
family. Bonnie came back espe-
cially to enjoy the birthday of
granddaughter, Aja, daughter of
Lee Anna and Scott Fitzgerald.
Lee Schoniger, Gloria French and
Darlene Baye enjoyed dancing in
Rapid City Saturday night. Then on
Sunday, Lee enjoyed dinner at Mel
and Beth’s.
Trevor Fitch, Brayden, Keagan,
Colby, and Marvin Eide enjoyed
snowmobiling in the Black Hills
Saturday. Burgess and Theo went
up from Philip and joined them for
the fun. They were up around the
Buckhorn area and enjoyed lunch
in that area. Much fun was had by
everyone. Vicki rode to Rapid City
with Christa to meet up with the
guys and have supper. Brayden,
Marvin and Vicki returned home
and brought the trailer and sleds
with them. Trevor, Christa and
boys stayed there and took the boys
to Belle Fourche Sunday for
wrestling. They reported that Colby
got first and Jensen third. Keagan
was sick on Sunday morning so was
unable to participate.
Discover and enjoy the happen-
ings around you. Enjoy the people
around you, and all the places yet to
see. The essence of this country
without having to leave home makes
life a great gift all year long. No
matter where you are or where you
go, there is something to be learned.
Just keep your eyes open and look
around you and something new will
be seen for the first time. It does not
matter how old you get there will al-
ways be some new to see or learn
without ever leaving home. So have
a good day and enjoy life each day
and be sure to take time to enjoy and
be thankful for what we do have.
Just some of my thoughts. – Mary

The comprehensive overhaul of
the way the state justice system
deals with offenders recently
passed the South Dakota Senate
with only two dissenting votes.
The bill is backed by a host of
law enforcement professionals as a
means of improving public safety,
holding offenders accountable and
controlling spending.
The program is expected to save
$160 million in the next 10 years in
prison costs, according to Senator
Russell Olson, R-Wentworth, one of
the senators who served on a task
force study group that created the
bill. Olson spoke to the bill, Janu-
ary 24 in the Senate, along with
Sens. Reid Holien, R-Watertown;
Craig Tieszen, R-Rapid City; Larry
Lucas, D-Mission; and James
Bradford, D-Pine Ridge, who all
worked on the task force.
Bradford said it was a “highly
emotional” issue for him, “maybe
because I’m directly affected,” see-
ing a family member make a mis-
take, make restitution and come
back home. “This is the first time
that I go home,” said Bradford, that
people will say, “hey, you know
what? South Dakota really does
care about us, about our problems.”
The program is not soft on crime,
said Olson, but rather is a smarter
approach than was taken 10 years
ago. It increases penalties for drug
dealers, for example, but works
outside of prison with drug offend-
ers to turn their lives around.
“There are dangerous people in our
prisons and they need to stay
there,” said Olson.
Tieszen said the program is “the
biggest policy that I have seen or
been part of since I’ve been in the
Legislature.” He added that 20-25
years ago, such a bill would never
have gotten out of committee, but
times have changed. “What we
thought was right then,” Tieszen
said, was not getting the desired
The program will enhance and
expand Driving Under the Influ-
ence and Drug Courts, expand the
24/7 program with swift and cer-
tain sanctions for those who devi-
ate from it, and provide training
and monitoring for offenders.
The South Dakota Public Safety
Improvement Act, SB70, now trav-
els to the House for consideration.
Public safety bill clears senate
by Elizabeth “Sam” Grosz
Community News Service
An attempt to set up misde-
meanor charges for adults who pro-
vide parties for under age drinkers
failed to pass out of the Senate
State Affairs Committee, January
23, at the South Dakota Legisla-
ture in Pierre.
The measure failed by one vote,
following sometimes emotional de-
bate, but backers vowed to keep
working on the bill to make it ac-
ceptable to lawmakers.
Senator Larry Lucas, D-Mission,
said there currently is no definition
for the term “social host,” but it is
generally agreed that it refers to
someone who provides the location
but not necessarily the alcohol for
a party.
It is not a defense, said Lucas, for
the adult to say that he was not
present at the party.
Joyce Glynn, West River rancher
with her husband, Roger, related
the story of how their son, Michael,
lost his life following his 2006 high
school graduation and attending
the subsequent party where under-
age teens were drinking. He died
as the result of a one-vehicle
rollover where he was ejected from
the car. That spring, Glynn said, 13
other teenagers died under similar
President Obama, noted Glynn,
has said that “the first task of soci-
ety is to keep our children safe.”
She questioned whether we are
doing everything possible to do
that. She discussed the three com-
ponents to keep children safe as ed-
ucation, legislation and enforce-
ment. It is clear, she said, that it is
illegal for anyone under the age of
21 to drink alcohol, and called this
bill “another tool” to be used.
With 5,894 minors charged with
possession and 416 misdemeanor
charges against adults, and 200 of
those dismissed, Glynn said “we
are sending a bad message to kids.”
Glynn said the Attorney Gen-
eral’s office has voiced its support
for the bill, as well as the South
Dakota States Attorneys Associa-
tion. Supporting testimony came
from the Concerned Women of
South Dakota.
However, the bill’s current lan-
guage was criticized by the State
Farm Insurance Company lobbyist
Dick Tieszen, and Roger
Tellinghuisen, lobbyist for South
Dakota Trial Lawyers Association,
as well as several members of the
Sen. Corey Brown, R-Gettys-
burg, questioned whether that one
additional law would have changed
anything that happened the night
that Glynn’s son died. Sen. Larry
Rhoden, R-Union Center, also
questioned whether the law would
be effective.
The bill died five to four and was
moved to the 41st day.
After the meeting, Glynn said “I
really thought with the State’s At-
torney Association and the Attor-
ney Generals’ Association, the peo-
ple who have to enforce these laws
and know the laws inside and out
that are on the books, and whether
they are enforceable or not and
whether they are enough or not, I
really thought their backing to the
legislators would say ‘you folks are
the expert in this field and so we
are going to rely on your recom-
mendation.’ ”
That didn’t happen, she said.
However, Glynn said “We will
never know if this would keep
someone from having a party at
their house.” She said she will con-
tinue to fight for a law such as this.

The Philip Scotties boys’ basket-
ball team not only forced a tied reg-
ular game, but won the match in
overtime over the previously
higher-ranked Oelrichs Tigers,
Saturday, January 26.
The first quarter was a high-ac-
tion stand off, with both teams
holding each other to 16 points. At
halftime, though, the Scotties were
behind by three points. While the
Tigers continued their 16-points-
per-quarter action, Philip played
catch up by narrowing the score
difference to just one point. As the
people in the grandstands heard
the final buzzer, the score board
saw a tied score. The score at the
end of overtime play reflected
Philip’s inching forward in quarter
scores since the first quarter. Now
Philip had tipped the scales to be
ahead when the overtime clock ran
Notable in Scottie play this game
was, while three-pointers were still
being thrown away, the players
tried to make up the difference
with a 100 percent free throw per-

the Tigers were allowed a total of
14 points, but Philip still almost
tripled their opponents’ score. The
third and fourth quarters were
simply continuations of Philip
pulling further ahead to cement
the win. The Philip junior varsity
had shot close to a 50 percent on
field goals.

game, with Philip and Newell end-
ing only three points apart. That
spread, though, grew to the Irriga-
tors’ advantage by halftime. The
second half continued in the same
fashion until the final buzzer and a
win by Newell.

The District 14B Philip Lady
Scotties traveled to Lemmon, Fri-
day, January 25, to challenge the
District 16B Cowgirls as part of a
girls’ and boys’ basketball double-
Philip started out slow, and
could not get any steam against
Lemmon. The Scotties mustered
only three points in the first quar-
ter and seven in the second quar-
ter. The third quarter saw a dou-
bling of the Philip score, but no
closing of the gap made by Lem-
mon. The Lady Scotties almost
again doubled their score before
the final buzzer, but the Cowgirls
still had a relatively easy win.

their offense or do much in the way
of a defense. The game ended with
a 23-point difference.

The Philip varsity boys began
their game with a decisiveness that
more than doubled their first quar-

their opponents’ scores. The second
half was almost as much of a one-
sided play, with the Scotties stay-
ing far ahead of the Cowboys to the
final buzzer.

The Philip junior varsity fought
a back-and-forth match that kept
the audience in suspence up to the
final buzzer. When the first quar-
ter ended, the Cowboys had a
three-point lead. That was a short-
lived situation, because by halftime
the Scotties boasted a four point
advantage. The third quarter saw
another turn around, with Lem-
mon catching and passing Philip to
hold a five point lead. The final
quarter was yet another flip-flop
for the lead. Philip first closed the
gap, then, with the clock having
ticked down, held on to a one-point
lead for the win.

Nearly all of the cast members of

ilies gathered Thursday evening for

Congratulations, boys!
Bill and Connie Parsons went to
Rapid City Friday to the home of
Gerald and Gladys Morgan. Their
mother, Laura Morgan, and Keith
and Norleen Morgan, Billings,
Mont., were there visiting. I'm sure
they had a great time. Laura is liv-
ing with Keith and Norleen there in
A few days last week, Donnie
and Bobette Schofield, along with
Bobette's brother, Jim Murphy,
were in Sioux Falls for doctor ap-
pointments for Jim. He, along with
so many others are struggling to get
over the flu/cold.
Donnie and Bobette Schofield
met their daughter and family, the
Bruce Dunkers, Wall, for dinner in
Rapid City Sunday. They also spent
some time at the stock show.
Hugh and Ann Harty were in Her-
mosa for the weekend with Ann re-
maining a bit longer. Hugh stopped
at the stock show also. Paul and
Moneik Stephens and family were
there in Hermosa finishing up the
bathroom project.
Cory, Ryan and J.J. Elshere all
came to Jim and Lana Elshere's Sat-
urday to help lay a new kitchen
floor. While the men worked, Lana
and some of the grandkids, Trey,
Jenna, Talon, Thayne and Rylan,
had lots of fun playing outdoors.
Several days last week, Tim
Quinn, Josh and Kelton, were in
Denver for the stock show. Tim and
Kelton visited Pat and Carla Quinn
while there and also helped their
cousin, Eli Berry, show animals at
the stock show. Sunday morning,
Josh joined other senior FFA mem-
bers from Philip High School to
Denver for the stock show.
Sunday afternoon, the drama
kids from Philip High School trav-
eled to Wall where they presented
their one act play, "Discovering
Rogue." Wall High School also pre-
sented their play, "Orphan Trains."
After performing in Wall, both
schools brought their talent to
Philip where they each presented
their play. Several local families at-
tended. Both schools earned the
right to go on to the state one act
festival in Brandon beginning
Kelton Quinn spent Thursday
and Friday nights at the Mike
Piroutek home helping his friend,
John Piroutek, celebrate his birth-
Last Wednesday, Paul Staben
visited his brother-in-law, Bob
Helms, north of Wall. Sunday, the
Stabens' attended the stock show.
Gayla Piroutek, Nina Pekron
and Theresa Deuchar, along with
close to 1,000 other folks, gathered
at the Rapid City cathedral to hear
Matthew Kelly speak about how to
live with passion and purpose, how
to hear God, how to become the best
version of yourself so that you can
follow the path God has laid out for
you. This dynamic speaker had a
strong message for Catholics and
other christians. He has had books
on the Times Best Seller List. He
spoke for over four hours.
Deb Neville spent the weekend
in Rapid City caring for her grand-
children while their parents, Lukasz
and Amanda, were busy.
Mark and Judith Radway were
busy over the weekend going to Bai-
ley's basketball games in Lemmon
and Philip. Sunday, they were in
Rapid City for the stock show. On
their way home, they stopped in
Quinn for the surprise 50th birth-
day celebration for Mary Lou Gup-
Sharon Olivier hosted a home
party at Janice Parsons' Saturday
with approximately 12 ladies at-
tending. Cassidy (Smith) Ayotte was
the demonstrator.
Our weather has again turned
kind of wintry. Monday, light snow
fell, covering the ground with a
blanket of white. It sounds like a
couple of cold days, then it will
warm up again.

(Laura is the director for the Hayes
play.) Friday, Laura, Clint and
Alivya hosted at gathering of
friends at a restaurant in Pierre.
Those attending were Adam and
Jodi Roseth and family, Crystal
and Levi Neuharth and boys, Jea-
nine Gabriel and kids, Vince and
Katie Bruce, and Chase and Kelly
Briggs and family. There were 11
adults and 12 children, and they all
had a great time and took a group
picture. T.J. Gabriel wasn't able to
attend because of calving activity
at the ranch. Clint, Laura and
Alivya spent the night in town, and
then hurried home for chores the
next morning. Saturday afternoon,
they were in Hayes visiting with
the whole Yost family, and Laura's
sister, Amy, and friend cooked an
amazing meal for the group. Sun-
day, Hayes play cast members sur-
prised Laura by finishing the last
part of the stage that was needing
done. Laura said this week she is
thankful for good friends!
Marge Briggs said she hasn't
been anywhere to make any news,
but her time has been taken up
going through the many catalogues
she receives, doing lots of "dream-
ing," she said. Her son, Lynn, was
a business caller in Pierre Monday.
A week or so ago, Ed Briggs at-
tended the Jones County basket-
ball tournament Saturday evening
and Sunday had dinner with the
Jack Carr family in White River.
This past weekend, Ed and his
friend, Beth, went to Dupree Sat-
urday for the basketball game be-
tween Dupree and Jones County. It
was a really close game, with
Dupree winning the game. Sunday
after chores, Ed had planned to
head to Brookings and Watertown
to visit his sons. After getting to
Brookings to visit Shane, bad road
and visibility conditions convinced
Ed to return home rather than con-
tinue on to Watertown to visit
Casey. Ed said it was misty and
sprinkling rain in Brookings, with
a temperature of 32 degrees and
fog rolling in. It sounds like he
made a good decision!
Chase and Kelly Briggs and fam-
ily enjoyed their evening out with
friends in Pierre last Friday. It was
wonderful to visit with everyone,
and it was a good chance for the
kids to run and play!
Helen Beckwith has spent the
past couple of weekends working at
the hospital in Pierre. She was also
able to attend a hockey tourna-
ment. Her grandson, Reaf Briggs,
is quite the little hockey player,
and he was awarded a Tyler Wilcox
sportsmanship award – congratu-
lations to Raef! Helen had the mis-
fortune of catching a cold, so she
has been home trying to recover.
Our week here has been more of
the same – feeding cattle and tak-
ing care of livestock. Chauncey Jor-
gensen, our faithful helper here at
the ranch, kept a doctor's appoint-
ment in Rapid City last Wednes-
day, and Sunday he kept watch on
the livestock at T.J. Gabriel's ranch
while T.J. was at the stock show.
Sunday evening, our daughter,
Jen, and her husband, Ross Tschet-
ter, Salem, arrived to spend sev-
eral days. Ross will be attending
meetings in Pierre this week as
part of his South Dakota ag and
rural leadership group, and Jen
will be doing her work from the
ranch – isn't technology wonderful?
Randy and Jennifer took some cat-
tle to the sale in Philip Tuesday.
This week, I am grateful for the
computer. I have kind of a
love/hate relationship with the ma-
chine – I love it when it is working
correctly, and it hate it when it is
being temperamental – but by and
large, it is truly a blessing. Because
of the computer, we have a world of
information at our fingertips, it
makes compiling tax information
much easier, (Thank you!) and we
are able to see exactly what the
weather and road conditions are.
Various applications allow us to
keep up with friends near and far,
play scrabble across the miles, and
do so many other things. Now, if I
could teach it how to iron western
shirts and mend blue jeans, it
would be even more wonderful!
I hope all of you will enjoy your
week. Enjoy the nice days and bun-
dle up during the cold spells. Think
about doing a favor for someone,
bake cookies for your neighbor,
shovel some one's walk – good
deeds brighten your life as much as
they do the recipient's life! Have a
great week!
